by a corrupt User Profile. Try logging on as the Administrator and if that works OK create another User account.

Edit: to add that if you are using XP Home you can access the Administrator account by pressing the function key F8 repeadedly after startup.

It could be an infection

You could remove the Drive and add the Drive as a Slave to another PC or a USB enclosure and then run MalwareBytes.

Download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, install it and update it.

<a href="http://download.bleepingcomputer.com/malwarebytes/mbam-setup.exe" target="_blank"><u>Malwarebytes</u></a>

* Double-click mbam-setup.exe and follow the prompts to install the program.
* At the end, be sure a checkmark is placed next to Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, then click Finish.
* If an update is found, it will download and install the latest version.
* Once the program has loaded, select Perform Quick Scan, then click Scan.
* When the scan is complete, click OK, then Show Results to view the results.
* Be sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.

If you encounter any problems while downloading the updates, manually download them from here and just double-click on mbam-rules.exe to install.

I would keep scanning with it until it is clean by closing out and rebooting and running it again.


Download Spybot - Search & Destroy and install it. Update it and run it.

Just to be on the safe side when you finish do an online scan with Bitdefender or Google for an online scanner.
