Windows XP - immediately logs user off after logon
I was asked to have a look at a laptop by somebody as a favour. This laptop is used by the guys kid and I'm pretty sure he's picked up a load of malware or a virus.
The laptop is running XP Pro and it boots up OK and presents you with the Welcome screen. Selecting the user then pops up the loading user settings message and then immediately displays the saving settings and logging off messages :rolleyes:
I've run ClamAV across it (from Knoppix) and deleted a load of adware. I've also used an offline registry editor to check the Winlogon keys for dodgy entries. It still doesn't work!
It's really go t me stumped now this but curiosity has got the better of me and I don't just want to wipe it and start again.
