    Can't log into XP-Logs me right out

    When I try turn on my comp, the screen loads, and it asks me to choose a user. Normally, this does not come up. I choose the one and only user, Stan. It plays the welcome noise, then the shutdown noise, and goes back to the original screen. I can't get in through SafeMode, as it only adds an Administrator user, which I can't log into anyway.

    I just got rid of a program called "WindowsSA", which was an internet search toolbar in my system tray (not in the tray, next to it). I'm writing this from school. Please help.

    possibly the sasser worm. search around for a sasser removal tool and do all of the windows updates to avoid getting it again. Plus, it doesn't hurt to enable the windows firewall. I've found that machines that have the windows firewall running did not get sasser.

    ...except that he can't even log in to be able to remove the virus...

    I'm positive it's not the sasser worm (when I bought the comp, I got the patch installed), and I ran Nortan Anti-Virus from the CD. I've found an article on how to fix this (it has to do with the WindowsSA(search assist) spyware). Let's hope it works. Thanks for the replies, and if anyone has ANY ideas, tell me.

    If this doesn't work, this thread is my computer's lifeline

    When all else fails, read the instructions.

    Thanks everyone. I'm back in

    I did deal with WindowsSA. It changed a regisrty key (userinit), so I couldn't log in if I uninstalled the program. I ran adware and norton on it, after i uninstalled. Unforunately, this prog screws with your registry.

    I think it was transmitted via a halo game. not sure

    >>via a halo game

    really? how's that? can you share files while playing or something?

    off topic:
    how is halo for the pc? do they update it regularly or just let it sit with bugs?

    I've heard Halo for the PC is lacking... but I've only heard 1 review, and he hadn't played the console version.

    it would work as long as it didn't take a registry snapshot when he shut down after he uninstalled that spyware, if he did, it won't work
