    Hi Carl,

    The userinit value may have been corrupted by the removal of blazefind. It
    adds wsaupdater.exe to the logon value in the system registry, sometimes
    appending it, sometimes replacing it. Running Adaware or other cleaners
    detects and removes wsaupdater.exe, but doesn't correct the registry damage.
    If this is the case, then you may need to load the registry hive from
    another installation and change it. This is the key:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon

    Userinit string value should be:

    C:\WINDOWS\system32\userinit.exe,

    On the damaged installations it's one of these:

    C:\WINDOWS\system32\wsaupdater.exe,
    C:\WINDOWS\system32\userinit.exe,C:\WINDOWS\system32\wsaupdater.exe,

    Another "quickie" method of resolution is to load the Recovery Console (see
    below), copy userinit.exe as wsaupdater.exe from the command prompt, then
    restart normally. Once in, go and change the registry value back to what
    it's supposed to be and delete the copied file.

    HOW TO: Install and Use the Recovery Console in Windows XP [Q307654]

    This can also be done by using the 6 disk boot floppy set mentioned in the
    above article, as it loads enough of the Recovery Console so that you can
    copy the file. This is particularly useful if you have an OEM installation
    that includes only a Restore CD, or no disk at all.
