more details

i recently had a few serious problems ( all of my icons, and my start menu were gone), but the wonderful folks here on TSF got me all fixed up (yes, in case you're wondering i did make a small donation, as a token of appreciation). so of course during the whole process of fixing that problem they had me scan my PC with about a billion different things, but now i'm getting the "userinit" problem, and on a side note, for some reason, when i try to run my spybot s&d it always says that it has encountered problems and needs to close- i'm not sure if the 2 probs. r related or not-- at any rate, here is all the details i could come up with for the error:

Userinit Logon Application has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience.



AppName: userinit.exe AppVer: 5.1.2600.0 ModName: userinit.exe
ModVer: 5.1.2600.0 Offset: 0000a4f1

thankx for the help

start - run - sfc /scannow ( system file checker )
if does not work
repair installation of windows ( this would be a good guide )

i tried sfc, but nothing happened, so i re-ran my avast antivirus, and it found a few things, no problems since, so i'm holding off on doing a windows repair.

If you found an infection there might more we might need to find. Please post a hjt log under hjt log help forum.

Good Luck.
