Why am I unable to logon selected user?

By kowh01 ·
I have created 2 users in Windows XP(Home edition), and recetly, having problems looging into windows with one of the user(A).When I try to log on to the (A), it will start to load personal options and then it will sort of hang in the explorer. Mostof the time can log off using task manager but smtimes have to force shut down. Sometimes, there don;t seem to have a problems starting up. This ONLY applies to user (A). I have scanned the disk and did a virus check but all was clear.I am currentlyusing Norton Antivirus and it is up to date and have also updated Windows. Why is there such a problem?

Sounds like that profile may be corrupted. Right click on my computer and select properties. One of the tabs, advanced settings may be, will have a button that will display the profiles on this computer. select the one that is causing you problems and delete it. Save any needed files first. Then logoff and log on as the other user. This will recreate the profile. This may take a little longer than a normal logon as it has to recreate all the folders and settings.
