Gail,

From previous newsgroup post by Doug Knox - MVP:

<quote>
Click Start, Run and enter REGEDIT Go to:

HKEY LOCAL MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon

Look in the right pane for a value called Userinit. Its value should read:

C:\WINDOWS\system32\userinit.exe,

Including the trailing comma. If it reads anything else, double click
the Userinit value and change it. This assumes that XP is installed on
C:\Windows. If not, adjust the command line accordingly.

</quote>

If that does not help, see what startup applications are running. Get the
Autoruns utility (as they call "superset of MSConfig") from
www.sysinternals.com and inspect the startup programs.

Ramesh - I've tried everything you suggested, but aftering
downloading "autoruns" and examining the auto-run
programs, I cannot identify "My Documents." Any ideas what
to do next?

Without "attachment" option, how do I post the log? Have
tried copy/paste, but no paste option. Thx for your help.
