    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?

  2. Hi Paul, more likely malware

    This is courtesy of Ramesh

    "This is caused by a malware named BlazeFind. It adds an entry in the registry
    which is causing the problem.
    From Recovery Console, make a copy of the file userinit.exe and name it
    WSAUPDATER.EXE
    There was a KB article at Lavasoftusa and now been removed. So, look at the
    previous newsgroup posting:
