This problem often occurs with some spyware removal
tools or because your system drive has changed, .e.g after
some imaging or ghosting action. It happens because the file
userinit.exe is not located where the system expectes it to
be. The cure depends on your configuration, e.g. if the
machine is networked or not. See also here: http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;[LN];249321
