  • Login causes reset after XP SP2

    After installing SP2 on an otherwise updated PIII system, user/administrator login accepts password and starts preparing the user environment at which point the computer resets.

    Would an overwrite install (hatkana doreset) from CD with SP2 included help instead of or after SP2 installation?
    Do I have to reformat?
    Is this PC unable to handle SP2?

    BH I was fortunate enough to succeed in uninstalling SP2 from Add/Remove programs in Safe Mode.

    Have you got anything that would update gina.dll ?

    E.g. Biometric login, or even just PCanywhere (i think) !!

    anything like this may need a software update prior to SP2 install.

    Have you tried different user accounts ?
