Selecting the User Login quickly returns to Logon screen

Unread postby sslay » January 18th, 2010, 2:32 am

After running virus removal software (Superantivirusremoval, Adaware, Spybot) to remove Internet Security 2010 virus, now I cannot login in to Windows. When select the User Logon icon, get a quick flash of the desktop, then comes back to the User Logon screen.
When I do a Ctrl-Alt-Del I get the following message window:
In border of window "GoogleUpdagter.exe - Bad Image"
with something to the effect of c:\windows\system32\helper32.dll not a valid Microsoft Image...."

I cannot logon, so cannot use any "windows" solutions. I can boot up off of a recovery CD and get to a C: or D: prompt.

I searched the web and tried the following, with no solution:

Copied Userinit.exe to \Windows\System32\winlogon.exe

Copied Userinit.exe to \Windows\System32\winlogon32.exe

Copied Userinit.exe to \Windows\System32\wsaupdater.exe

Copied Userinit.exe to \Windows\System32\helper32.dll

I know there is something that can be done to get me logged in, I just haven't found the right combination.

When I select the User logon icon, what would cause it to immediately return back to the logon screen?

ANy help would be appreciated.

thanks,
Stan
