What specifically happens when you log on? Any error messages?

I had a similar problem recently where I would log on to Windows XP, however
when the PC had finished booting I had no Start button, taskbar or desktop
buttons. I managed to resolve this by going into Add/Remove Programs and
deleting all the Windows Hotfixes that had been upgraded on my PC. This
resolved the problem.

If these are the same symptoms that you are experiencing you will need to
follow the follwing process to open the Add/Remove Programs wizard.

Ctrl-Alt-Del on the blank desktop screen.
Task Manager opens
Click on the File menu and then New Task(run)
Click browse and browse to Documents and Settings -> Administrator -> Start
Menu -> Accessories -> Command Prompt
Click open to open the Command prompt
type cd..
type cd..
type cd windows
type cd system32
thype contorl appwiz.cpl
This will open the Add/Remove programs wizard
Now delete all the unrecognised Windows hotfix programs and reboot

Remember that a lot of the Hotfixes are there to fix security problems, and
removing them may expose your computer to known exploits. So un install
Hotfixes for diagnostic purposes, if you must, but try and be selective about
what you un install, and see if there are any known workarounds for each Hotfix.

When you make your computer less secure, you could be affecting the Internet as
a whole. So don't do this indiscriminately.

I have a slightly different problem - when I boot up the computer, I get the
Windows XP loading screen, and then afterwards, just a blank screen with no
picture. I can't follow any of your advice, becuase I can't operate the
machine when I can't see what I'm doing!

I'm running XP Pro, fully up to date with all drivers and updates, and have
already tried rolling back the registry manually using the Recovery Console
on the setup CD. No luck.

If anybody has any suggestions, please try to keep them simple!

Thanks,
Cyrus Lyons

Cyrus,

Pretty nasty problem there. You might want to start a new thread, with a
descriptive Subject, so more helpers can find your problem report.
