    I just updated my XP Home machine with the latest critical
    updates. There were about four of them as I've been away.
    After I updated and rebooted, when I try to login, it logs
    me in then immediately logs me out! Same when using the
    Administrator login.
    Any ideas?

    From Recovery Console, make a copy of the file userinit.exe and name it
    There was a KB article at Lavasoftusa and now been removed. So, look at the
    previous newsgroup posting:
