    hi! when i start up my computer and try to log into the admin account
    (the only account) i get the above message, then it says logging off and
    returns me to the logon screen.

    please help me, all info on how to fix it that i can find is with
    computers with more then one user account.

    Login in safe mode and uninstall all protected

    If you have installed Zone Alarm I'm sure it is responsible for your
    trouble :p

    Disable all non-system services this means make clean boot procedure
    'How to perform a clean boot procedure to determine whether background
    programs are interfering with a game or a program that you currently
    use' (
    and check results in normal mode

    Open regedit,

    And drill down to
    *hklm\software\Microsoft\windowsnt\currentverson\profile list* Expand
    profile list and highlight the guids one by one.

    if u find *c:\users\Admin* in the right pane while highlighting any one
    of the guid rename it to .bak.


    Say in my case if i highlight the first long guide it shows my profile
    path in the right pane. So this guid is belongs to my login. Like this
    you have to rename *Admin's guid.*

    Rename the long string to *admin.bak*. Restart your computer and try :)
