Phil,

From a previous newsgroup post by Doug Knox:

<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.

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.
