WinXP user log on problem

By RazorEdge ·
I am having troubles logging in to my Windows account. I correctly enter the right password, the system briefly begins loading my correct desktop screen, but then the whole thing quickly logs me back out and back to the users choice screen!

I have tried logging in using Safe Mode, but the same thing happens regardless of which user I choose, even as Administrator!

What changed since my last (erratic) shut-down and now? It's not a password issue; it's an almost immediate log-off issue!

Any/all help greatly appreciated!
