  • Immediate logoff after login

    Hi,

    I'm having a problem with some of our pc's. The moment you logon, it immediately logs off. I already checked the registry for the userinit value, I also replaced already the userinit and the explorer.exe but still no avail. Now, when I try to logon into the domain, I get the message that the netlogon service hasn't started. Somebody ahs a clue what I could do next?

    Have you tried booting into Safe Mode and running:

    sfc /scannow

    If that does not help, try running a Repair from the installation media.

      Hi, yes I tried running in safe mode, but it was the same. Can I run sfc /scannow using BartPE?

        The LSASS virus did this, didn't it?

        Suggest some offline malware scans are in order (McAfee Stinger or equivalent)

          i doubt this is the case here, but I can always check. I'll keep you posted. Other ideas are still welcome.

                Hi, is the netlogon service started and set to automatic? Any errors in the event log?

                You could try to remove and reinstall, Client for Microsoft Networks. IIRC you may need the xp disk for this.

                  Are you able to connect to it remotely?

                    Sadly no I can't even ping to it. But maybe the firewall is enabled, it shouldn't be.

                    @uk_network: I don't know because I can't logon, with no user. Whan I try to connect with another, not yet used user on that pc, user I get the message I cannot because the netlogon service doesn't run.

                      For one PC, an fdisk may be the quickest solution

                        Have you tried running the repair routine from the installation media.

                          I can't get into safe mode and I can't get into the recovery console. Maybe it's because the pc got installed by another company and I think they use image for installing.

                            Ossian: you mean using floppy? The pc only has usb ports.

                              No, I meant to wipe the OS (after recovering any required data e.g. by mounting the drive in another machine) and reinstall it all. In general for a single machine causing problems, this is the quickest and most effective solution.


                              I used fdisk as a generic term for wiping the OS entirely -- I could have talked about "nuking the OS"
