Windows XP2 Home - Very Frustrating!!!

This is the second time it has happened to me within a week of being on XP2.
I re-installed the first time. Before I re-install again I want to see if
anyone can help. Ran on XP1 for a year, no problems other than the normal
adware and spyware issues. I always was able to get my set of Accounts on the
Splash Screen.

Sceanario: Logged in fine, no issues worked all day, log out and turn
machine off properly. Next time I boot. I JUST GET THE SPLASHSCREEN. No
accts to login as.

Why does this happen?????

I tried Ctrl-Alt-Delete multiple times. No Help!
I tried restoring to last know "Good" configuration No Help!
I tried Safe Mode, same thing, just Splash Screen!!!!

I initially setup 4 accounts. Normally after a successful Login Spybot
always runs. Always fines the DSO Exploit only and is corrected. Ad-Ware
Personal SE doesn't run, nor any other adware / spyware software Norton 2003
is running auto protect enabled.

    Hello Jhonnyrock,
    Are remembering to turn off those programs before downloading Xp2?
    If so are you scanning for spyware just before the download? I might be
    wrong but it sounds like you ahve some sort of spyware or mailware your
    programs are
    missing.I have to leave soon but I will check back here and see how trhings
    are going. I have a trouble shooting guide with this problem but it will
    take a while to find it. Best of luck.
