Login/logoff Problems

By kindozo ·
My PC is a Toshiba Satellite A355-S6935 with Windows Vista Professional installed. My prblems are in 2 folds: The 1st happened before the 2nd.
1. I installed some windows update and since then my user accounts have changed. My desktop has initializes when I log on, it has changed, "My Documents" is empty but I see all installed programs when in control panel. Guest account is ok but my main accounts has changed totally. I did system restore but "undo" it cos the problem remained.
2. Now I experience logon/logoff loop with my user account. Guest account is not affected though. The interesting thing is that I see all my user account files with no problems when I use safe mode. Safe mode works well but normal mode keeps looping with logon.

I need help recover my PC to do my project work.

Sounds like a corrupt user profile.

Try reposting this in the 'Q&A' forum. The 'Discussion' forum is for matters of general discussion, not specific problems in search of a solution. The 'Water Cooler' is for non-technical discussions. You can submit a question to 'Q&A' here:;content

There are TR members who specifically seek out problems in need of a solution. Although there is some overlap between the forums, you'll find more of those members in 'Q&A' than in 'Discussions' or 'Water Cooler'.

Be sure to use the voting buttons to provide your feedback. Voting a '+' does not necessarily mean that a given response contained the complete solution to your problem, but that it served to guide you toward it. This is intended to serve as an aid to those who may in the future have a problem similar to yours. If they have a ready source of reference available, perhaps won't need to repeat questions previously asked and answered. If a post did contain the solution to your problem, you can also close the question by marking the helpful post as "The Answer".
