On Windows XP, trying to log on to any account (including Administrator, even in Safe Mode) results in the following sequence:
Message says "Loading personal settings"
Within 3 seconds, message says "Logging Off".
Screen goes back to logon screen (user menu).
I am unable to get to my dekstop.

does it say anything before that?

I know that when the lsass.exe is corrupted or has a buffer
overflow, it reboots. I would try Bart PE and fix the registry,
and if that doesn't work, I would try a repair with my
windows xp cd.

You'll probably have to reinstall

Look first

to logging in with another user in safe mode. It sounds like a login script problem or currupt user profile or possible virus.

If this is not an option, try slaving the drive in another unitand scan it, then **** away ntuser.dat file

Could be a virus..

by jtpaderes In reply to GETTING LOGGED OFF ON STA ...

Hi, got also the same problem. It could be a virus. Try this one. Boot using your Win XP cd but do not go to a fresh install, go to the "REPAIR" portion, then do not format, go to I guess its "LEAVE CURRENT FILES INTACT" (if I have the right words) its the last line in the formatting portion, so that all your personal files will be intact. and go on with the installation.

Hope this help.
