Many thanks to Daniel ! I also checked permissions on these files with knoppix, everything fine. I only disabled the update process. In the registry everything was fine, pointing to "C:/Windows/system32/userinit.exe,". https://forums.techguy.org/threads/solved-windows-xp-wont-let-me-log-off.710171/

and if he company can't solve it? But > that problem didn't happen every time. Report SNoWDoGG- Jan 21, 2009 08:20PM Thanks this worked for me.... Use the expand command instead of copy.

Closely look at the sequence immediately after you initiate shut-down. The solution is expand d:\i386\userinit.ex_ c:\windows\system32\ or if you CD into \windows\system32 expand d:\i386\userinit.ex_ . Thanks! the problem I'm having right now is that I don't have a windows xp cd available around me and this system has to work sometime soon.

Report Mackenzie- Feb 3, 2009 02:53PM This worked. I'D ADVISE YOU TO READ AND PRACTICE MORE IN THIS INTERESTING FIELD (I.T). That's the only thing I haven't tried that has been suggested, but I can't get there from here. So instead of complaining how bad this guy is, why not try to help us who still cant login???

The first thing I would is is run a check disk to make sure that the file structure is intact, and that no files are damaged. http://www.techsupportforum.com/forums/f10/windows-xp-cannot-shutdown-restart-and-log-off-402389.html Do I just put it in or have to shut it down and put it in at start up? After hours of searching I realised the userinit.exe had been removed somehow and I just replaced it with one from here http://www.f-prot.com/support/files/win-xp-sp2-de/userinit.exe and it restarted perfectly! And it always had before.

It just automatically logs me out real quick. When you attempt to log off, restart, or shut down an XP system and you see a flash on the screen and nothing else, check whether Symantec Norton Antivirus 2003 is Ctrl + Alt + Delete 08-07-2009, 05:37 PM #3 darkkiller Registered Member Join Date: Aug 2009 Location: CA, USA Posts: 28 OS: Win XP 1. Really impressive Report Robes- Jan 11, 2009 11:04PM For those that don't deal with computers day in and day out, one should comtimplate that and state what drive letter to use

Any idea? Figuring the registry could have been modified to point somewhere else (besides userinit or wsaupdater), I setup a BartPE (preinstalled environment) disc, booted to that, and checked my registry. Don't be dumb like me though, I was stressing out when I had put a ";" versus just the "," which will cause the same Log On/Log Off issue to happen. One note: do not specify the file name to be extracted to....

If u still know it, just do steps. What is wrong?
