Login Loop On Website

Question: Login Loop On Website

I need help with this website. I've tried using Safari, Chrome and Firefox to log in to this one particular website, but all the different search engines loop me back to the same log in page and I can't get past it. It's only this website that is causing me difficulties to log in.

Using a Macbook Pro OS Sierra 10.12.4 if that's any help.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hello friends, I recently got the Gnome desktop environment on the Ubuntu Software Center, and I used the gdm and startx command as said by another forum site. Nothing wrong, they said to logout, tried to login again, goes to a black screen and sends me back to the Ubuntu login screen. Tried again, same result, panicked. Looked up video tutorial on how to fix it, they said to access the control panel via ctrl-alt-f1 or f2, went to a black screen, no text at all, computer runs fine, no crashing. Is there a special way to access the terminal in a System76 computer, I really don't know very confusing? Is there a way to login with the guest session? I use Ubuntu 15.10 Wily Werewolf on my laptop. What causes this, I read on Ubuntu forums it's driver issues with Ubuntu and Nvidia, but I have my suspections with the Gnome desktop environment.

Question: Login Loop

I've got a strange problem that I have not been able to figure out yet.  I work at a business where we have perhaps fifteen computers.  There are two websites we use frequently that have just recently begun to loop during login.  We enter our regular normal login information and are immediately taken back to the login page instead of being directed to the site.  The odd thing is that one of our computers can access both sites with no problem.  I've tried fiddling with the settings on my computer and a couple of the others, to no avail.  The only thing I can figure is that the one computer that is logging in is not set to do the automatic updates.  Is it possible that a recent update did something to our cookies or something?  It's most frustrating because to process things on these two sites we have to go to the one person's computer and interrupt her work while we do what needs doing.  One of the sites directs us back to the login with the addition of "index.cfm" at the end of the regular address.  We use Cold Fusion on our own website, but I can't imagine how that would affect login on another site.Any ideas? :-?

Answer:Login Loop

Clear cache; delete cookies; close rogue browsers; restart.  Ensure those browsers are set to accept cookies.Does that help?If not, have you tried Firefox?

Question: login loop

Hello. My platform is Windows XP SP2 (WinNT 5.01.2600) and my browser is Internet Explorer v7.00. I've just downloaded the most recent MS critical update as suggested on your website. I've been experiencing a login loop trying to purchase games from Whenever I want to purchase a game, I log on to my account but when I click on proceed to checkout, it brings me back to the login screen. It never lets me through to the check out. I've contacted BigFishGames customer support but they too are stumped. They suggested that I adjust the privacy bar to medium and keep the automatic cookie handling active. Both of which I've done but with no success. I've also cleared my temporary files at their suggestion but still to no avail. They've suggested perhaps to use FireFox but I cannot load it on my computer for some reason. It simply does not work. Any suggestions?

My first post! Windows XP. I have received a lot of information by email from Holland America in regards to cruise reservations made by phone. Ever since I received the emails, I am unable to access the Holland America website, whether by direct logon, links from emails, etc. If I input and click enter, the site starts to load with the address htt;:// This should lead to loading the website. Instead, the address line constantly changes back and forth from that line to lines that add "session" information and each one of those is different and only last a couple of seconds, at best. I was able to copy ONE of them...the rest go by too quickly to read. The one that I wrote down was:;jsessionid=YNjLZy6CV9K2MKD5jdMGW**.node
Others change the information between the "=" and the "**). How do I get rid of these session ghosts? I have no idea where they came from. This is the only website that I have ever had this experience with but it is driving me nuts. Thanks for any help you may be able to give.

Question: login logout loop

My partner has been doing a lot of work for me on her Toshiba satellite laptop as she can type far quicker than I can. I have to get a portfolio done for a new job and we have spent about three weeks on it.

We have just installed a wifi card to it and xp needed to load service pack 2 (the computer had not been online for years). I also installed AVG Free edition, AVG spyware, AdAware, Spybot, Wise disc cleaner and Wise registry cleaner. I stupidly didn't do a back up. I ran all the programs, got rid of some junk. Computer was working fine until we switched it off. Now when we switch it back on it gets as far as the welcome screen, when you click on the account it says 'loading your personal settings' and then immediately says ' saving your profile'.

Have tried to boot in safe mode but it still happens with both administrator account and other account.

I have tried to google it and apparently some spyware programs can cause problems with the userinit.exe file when it is replaced by wsaupdater.exe but I cannot find wsaupdater.exe in the system32 file.

Toshiba just said use your restore disc which has been lost (we have disc 2 though) and microsoft want to charge me just to 'ask' them if it is possible to sort it out.

I have used BartPE to look at the drive and hopefully get the data off, but it is on the desktop and I can't access it.

Please anyone help

So I was cleaning out my box last night and realized I had 2 extra drives screwed into the case that weren't hooked up. I had forgotten what was on them and wanted to find out so I hooked them up with my current boot drive and told bios to boot from my current drive (as it turns out one of the drives was my OLD boot drive which had the same drive letter c: and drive name as my current drive.) Windows booted normally and I saw my custom login screen. I entered my password and then all hell broke loose. It showed the wallpaper I had from the windows install on the old drive but that’s all it showed. Windows just hung there so I shutdown, disconnected the 2 additional drives and restarted. Windows booted fine however it didn't load my custom login screen. It loaded a standard windows login box and had my name in it. I entered the password and it said loading personal settings but then immediately logged me out without loading my desktop. I tried to login with the admin account and it did the same thing. I tried to boot in safe mode and when it asked me to login it did the same thing. I don't think windows restore was functioning either.

Having 2 drives at the same time with the letter c: and the same disk name must have corrupted something with my current drive. However, windows shouldn’t allow 2 drives to have the same letter so I don’t know how this could have happened. It seemed like it tried to load the profile from my old insta... Read more

Working with a friends Dell Dimension B110 computer with SP3.

Computer has been running fine for them until last week. Now every time they login under any of the accounts it seems to log them in -- flashes the wallpaper then immediately logs them out (saving settings, etc...) and back to Welcome Login screen.

Here are some things that I have tried based on my googling:
1. Safe Mode -- same result as above
2. Last good configuration settings -- same result as above
3. Safe Mode command prompt -- same result as above
4. ctrl-alt-delete at windows screen logging in old style -- same results as above
5. boot from xp cd logging into recovery mode -- copied the userinit.exe to wsaupdater.exe -- same results as above

Additionally while booted in from xp cd I did tool around abit, but recieved some access denied messages to directories like "program files" and "Documents and Settings".

Any suggestions on how to log into this box are greatly appreciated.

Thank you.

Answer:login/logout loop

If you are now being looped back on your login screen, it means that userinit.exe file has been deleted, infected or corrupted or the registry keys associated with it may have been deleted or corrupted. Have you tried logging into safe boot mode? if that does not work then you will need to do the below:

I can boot and operate "normally" but when I need to reboot and the Welcome screen with User Ids comes up:

1. HD Light continues flashing
2. After 30 - 60 seconds system reboots on its own
3. If I wait 30 seconds, password protected IDs will not accept correct password.
4 If ANY account Logs in, cycle is broken.
5. Password protected Login must done quickly.

Answer:Windows 7 login log out loop

Does the program have any kind of "Undo" feature?
Have you tried System Restore?
This program is a registry cleaner, among other things, and registry cleaners are infamous for causing this kind of problem.
If you ever manage to get your PC running after the damage done by this program, be sure to uninstall it and swear off any all such programs in the future.

Right, I have an XP Media Center 2005 machine that's in an activation loop due to the fact that I've restored a registry backup over the top of a repair installation (long story, don't ask - fact is I now have an (almost) working PC!).

Whenever I boot and log in, it displays a dialog box that says that the activation period is expired etc, and asks me if I want to activate now. When I click on "Yes", it bungs me straight back to the logon screen with the choice of users.

This happens when I'm booted into standard Safe Mode, Safe Mode with Networking and normal Windows. The copy of XP is completely legal and legit, I just need to activate it, which is slightly frustrating. Any help appreciated.


Answer:XP Activation Login Loop

If this is a legit version of windows and product ID then the next step is to call Microsoft and get them to manually authenticate the OS for you. You might have to do a repair-install for thsi to work right and the legal windows install disk is needed.

Original problem: when trying to login to Windows XP Pro, with only one user it usually booted straight to the desktop. Instead it went to the choose user screen. I picked the user it logged in and then immediately logged back out to the choose user screen. If I choose the user again the process repeats itself.

Went here:

for advice and was advised to try repairing the XP installation. That just seemed to make it worse. Now the system simply re-boots after a short period of time never making it to the choose user screen.

Hello kaustubhlohiya

This is the first time I have seen these symptoms in Vista, but in XP this is always a sign of a malware attack. I think you need to get your system checked.

Using the Admin Account
Please read this article; "Having problems with spyware and pop-ups? - First Steps"; follow the instructions very carefully; then, post all the requested logs and information; as instructed, in the HiJackThis Log Help Forum
Please ensure that you create a new thread in the HiJackThis Log Help Forum; not back here in this one.

When carrying out The 5 Steps, if you cannot complete any of them for whatever reason, just continue on with the next one until they are all completed.
However,it is extremely important to make mention of the fact that you could not complete any of the steps in your post to The HJT Help Forum; where an Analyst will assist you with other workarounds.

Don`t try to fix this yourself as you could do damage and lose all access to your system

I started up my Windows 7 computer this morning, and tried to log in as normal. The system hung for a while at the welcome screen (with the loading circle next to welcome) and then briefly flashed error wrong password before going back to the welcome screen again. It did this about 12 times before it returned to the normal login screen and I could enter my password to log in. Is this a virus or just an odd glitch? Windows event viewer says there are 12 failed logon events over the course of a minute and 12 seconds (all identical, logon type 2) with two simultaneous logon events happening twice within one second (so time 1 logonx2, time 2 logonx2).

Answer:Windows 7 failure login loop

Still occuring, only after I shut down the computer (not on lock or resume from sleep). What happens is that it jumps straight to the welcome loading screen- not even showing the enter password screen as an option, as if I'd just hit enter to log in before the option appeared. Once I can actually enter my password it works normally, but it seems odd that it tries to log in without it.

Hey there, I'm running Windows XP Home Edition on a Dell, and I can't log in to any of my accounts. When I click the account, it shows the "Loading your preferences..." and everything, flashes the desktop background, and immediately returns to the login screen with the "Logging off..." dialogue.

I've been reading up on solutions all morning, including booting in safe mode (still can't log in, even as admin), returning to the last working configuration to no avail, and now I've booted from my install disc and ran the recovery console. I've tried getting the correct files from the disc, but I'm not sure if I've been doing it correctly, despite the console saying 1 file was copied.

I've tried the following:
from C:\Windows\System32:
"copy userinit.exe wsaupdater.exe"

And then I tried running the full line:
"copy c:\windows\system32\userinit.exe c:\windows\system32\wsaupdater.exe"

Every time, the computer returned "1 file copied" but when I exit and reboot, the login/logoff still happens.

I even tried from the D:\i386\ directory:

I found viruses by hooking up HD through USB adpater to another machine and running Vipre scan on it and MWB scans. Of course, I deleted them, but you know how that goes with viruses.

My removals did not CAUSE the login symptoms because these were the symptoms presented to me with the computer. The login loop. I cannot get in through safe mode or last known.

Answer:windows xp login logout loop


I got a virus on my desktop yestrday and immeadiately ran my avg antivirus. It found 15 infections. While trying to fix them, the profram crashed. When I rebooted, i got the infanous login-logout loop.

Same thing happens when I log in using safe mode. I have treid using the Recovery console and doing this fix:

Here is the solution to the logon - logoff issue in Windows XP.

Enter the Recovery Console

Boot the system using the Windows XP CD-ROM. In the first screen when the Setup begins, read the instructions press "R" (in the first screen) enter the Recovery Console. Type-in the built-in Administrator password to enter the Console. You'll see the prompt reading C:\Windows (Or any other drive-letter where you've installed XP)

Type the following command and press Enter.

(If that does not work, try CHDIR SYSTEM32)


but i get a message that "the system cannot find the file specified."

I also tried this:

When you are given the message press any key to boot from cd..., press a key and Windows Setup will start. At the first screen where you have to enter input, hit R to enter the Recovery Console. Then you will have to hit 1 to log into your windows installation and then just hit Enter for the Administrator password because it is normally blank unless you changed it.

I think I have a Malware infection in my pc (xp, sp2, Dell xps 400 model).

Here's the sequence of events: a McAfee scan found a couple files which were then quarentined. But suspiciously, when the scan was done, there were ~10 new Internet Explorer sessions open. I right-clicked on each IE on the task bar and closed them, then rebooted. Now, I can't get past the login. Windows presents the login box, I type my username and password, my desktop background picture appears, then a "Logging Off..." box appears and I'm back at the log in screen. Type username and password..."Logging Off"...back at login screen...a terrible loop.

I've tried booting in Safe Mode (plain, "with networking", and "with command prompt"), and get the same results - stuck at the login loop. I also tried booting to Last Known Good Configuration, but got the same results - stuck at login. I need to get past this point so I can run diagnostics.

Thanks in advance for the help!

I got the laptop to work for one time and when I turned it off I never got it to work again. Now when I turn it on the only thing that shows up is the windows loading screen and a black Compaq screen with esc, f10, and f12 to change boot order (which doesn't work), setup options (I'm not a good computer programmer),boot from LAN (which also doesn't work) and it will cycle between those two continuously so I can't log in.The model is a Compaq Presario v5000

my work machine started acting up yesterday. even though i have it set to log in automatically, the log in screen started appearing suddenly when i boot. the only option is my regular account.

when i click it, the monitor (old crt) clicks off and on, like it's changing resolution. it goes blank for a second, then the login screen comes back up.

it takes some messing about, restarting, and lots of clicking, but eventually it logs in and i can work.

Purchased and loaded OEM Copy of XP Pro on an employee's laptop. Thought I had
activated; maybe the activation never worked. Employee let 30-day period
expire. Now I cannot get past login screen to activate, stays in a loop. Says
I must activate, I click Yes, logs me out, lets me try logging in again,
again says I must activate. Called Microsoft, and they were no help, just
wanted me to pay $59 to try getting help. So, I tried to re-install from Safe
Mode w/command prompt. Would not allow me to update, said I had to
re-install, which I did, a 2nd copy as I did not want to lose the employee's
stuff on the computer. Also, have tried to do a Repair install, but no
change. All of the Microsoft help says to Activate from the Start Menu, but I
cannot even get past the login screen. Please help.

Answer:Can't Get XP Pro to Allow Activation. Stays in Login Loop.

I had a problem like this with a laptop whose bios clock didn't work - the same endless loop, like you're encountering. I was able to boot up to graphical safe mode to, um, 'activate', and apparently it doesn't stop you at the logon screen when you're using safe mode :D

I've got a client's HP notebook that cannot login because it can't activate. They called me when the notebook just hung at the blue Windows XP screen before displaying login. Everything is legal. I wound up getting their XP Reinstallation CD and doing a "Repair". I learned, too late, that I should have copied the WPA.dbl and .bak files. Since my wpa education, I've copied the wpa files off both of my XP machines in case of future repair!

Now, I can get to the login screen but can't, when I'm asked to activate. Without internet connection since repair, it just loops back to the login screen. I was able to get their data off and even do File & Settings Transfer Wizard in Safe Mode by running explorer from a command window.

Question: Won't I have the same activate issue if I do a complete XP re-install and File & Settings Transfer Wizard back to the new install? Any other ideas that might be helpful? I've got another client notebook with different issues that I may post later if I can't find forum help.

Thanks in advance!

Answer:Solved: XP login and activate loop

If you do a complete reinstall you will be able to log on to normal mode and transfer the files and settings. Just make sure that its activated before 29 days.

Hi there all you benevolent, knowledgeable ones

I've searched and found a similar problem to mine elsewhere, but none of their fixes work for me...

My PC was working fine yesterday; I dont remember installing anything. Today, I can't logon unless I boot in safe mode.

The PC boots up, after the blue welcome screen, it gets to the desktop wallpaper image without icons, plays the startup sound, then flashes back to the blue welcome screen, playing the exit-windows sound. It ends up on the login prompt. (This didn't appear before - I'm the sole user of this PC, and have no password set, so it used to bypass this screen.)

Clicking on my account does a 10 second "loading personal settings"+startup sound -> "Saving your Settings"+exit-windows sound; back to the login screen again.

In Safe Mode, both Administrator and my normal account work. The internet doesn't work (even in Safe Mode with networking) though interestingly, I can still collect emails from my ISP.

Things I've already tried without success:

I tried last known good config. No joy.
Also, System Restore is not available in Safe Mode. Should it be?

Doing windows updates and installing service packs on a computer at work on Friday I ran into a problem. The updates were done so I went to restore it's normal login procedure which is to login automatically to a user account (local). The problem is that when it restarted and went to auto sign in an error came up saying something to the effect that the registry was to small and that I needed to increase the registry size and then a counter counted down till a restart of the login process.

It's stuck in this infinite loop and I have yet to figure out how to get out.

Last Good Config didn't work.
a soft reinstall didn't fix it.
Safe mode didn't fix it.

I believe i need a way to force it to let me get the login screen back so I can login as the administrator but I have no idea how to do that.

Any ideas or help would be greatly appreciated.

OK so the problem started when I was playing a game and it crashed on a loading screen, I then could only boot into windows extremely slowly so I knew something was wrong.

Since then I have booted into safe mode and done a virus check and it found nothing, I had then done a start up repair multiple times and for one reason or another the system would then reboot just as the login screen is loading.

I have recently de fragmented the drive externally and run a slow disk check which found nothing. I've launched start up repair again which says it's unable to fix the problem and I can't boot into safe mode because it'll reboot.

I should also mention I was having problems with the drive a few weeks ago where I was getting different error messages before booting but I managed to sort that out. If a solution can't be found it would be safe to say the drive is failing.

Here is the bsod when I disabled automatic rebooting along with the startup repair error.

I'm not sure if this belongs in this forum or a hardware one, but since the problem started as an XP one I'll post it here. If it needs to be moved, feel free to do so.

Okay... This is gonna be a long story, but please bear with me. Yesterday morning, I thought I'd plug in one of the extra hard drives I had laying around for a little more space on my PC. It was a 40gb IDE drive. I plugged it in to the IDE cable that used to be connected to a DVD rom that I had removed. It didn't work, so I unplugged it. When I restarted the computer and logged back in to Windows, I noticed that my DVD burner was no longer recognized. It still had power, and was spinning contentedly but neither my BIOS or Windows detected it. I decided to ignore that problem until another day. That day turned out to be today. Today when I tried to login to Windows, it logged me in, showed me the desktop for about a second, and then logged me out. From what I've read about this problem, it's due to a virus/spyware cleaner deleting a vital Windows file. I think I could fix the problem if I could somehow get into my computer, but as I can't login, Safe mode won't work, and I have no detected DVD or CD rom to boot from, I'm left with my flash drive. I have Hiren's Boot CD ghosted to a flash drive, but my computer refuses to boot from it. I've tried every option I could find in the BIOS (PhoenixBIOS Vers. 4.06 Rev 1.02.1675) and still no luck.

Answer:Today is not my day... DVD Rom + login/logout loop + Booting from USB Drive

Hi there Limpy and welcome to TSF.
A bit of a problem there. It could be yolk contamination from your hard drives laying around. Sorry, I couldn't resist that.
I know this might sound basic, but have you checked all your connections to make sure you didn't disturb anything when plugging in and unplugging your hard drive. Until you can get your machine to recognise your CDROM, you're a bit stuck, as you can't boot from a USB device. It's unlikely that you will have deleted any essential files for this as the CDROM is detected in BIOS. Actually, that might be worth checking. Boot into BIOS and see if your CDROM is there.

I'm not gonna lie to you guys, this is all going down on a computer that is not mine, I'm at work and I'm at a loss of what to do, so any and all help you can give me is VERY appreciated. I'm really worried about this one.

So I was doing some admin stuff on a computer installing a program, but it was having trouble so the guide that I was reffered to told me to boot up in safe mode. Against my better judgement I did it the way it said instead of the way I was familiar with ( F8 ). The way it told me how to do it was to go into msconfig and check the box for safe mode. I think that actually modifies the system.inf or whatever the file is.

Now... the problem is that this is a computer on a network, and network users are the only people who log onto it. In the past I've tried to log into it using safe mode and everytime my logins won't work and I just restart and choose "safemode with networking" which works great.

The problem is that now it automatically goes to just regular "minimum safe mode" no matter what I do, restart/turn off/choose a different option under F8. I've also tried to guess some local usernames/password (administrator, admin, user, guest for the username spot, for the password spot variation of the word password, the same word typed again, or just leaving password blank) but none of them have worked. If I could figure out one of these we could probably get it to go, but I don't know if anyone has... Read more

I have an old laptop running Windows 2000. I recently found a virus on the machine and cleaned it. After cleaning it and rebooting it was stuck in the login loop (even in Safe Mode). I attempted to boot from the Windows 2000 CD but receive a BSOD with an Inaccessible Boot Device Error (Code 0x0000007B) when the installation starts (it does boot from CD and loads drivers). The laptop doesn't have an internal CD Drive so I'm booting from a USB CD Rom which I believe is causing the problem. The laptop also doesn't have a Floppy drive and I don't have one I can use either. Can anyone help with the login loop issue or the BSOD? I assume I can repair using the Win 2000 CD recover console if I can just get into it. Also does anyone know of anyway to get into the registry without getting into windows? The laptop also isn't on network so I can't do it from another machine. The HD is also difficult to get to without taking apart the whole machine so that's not an option.

I went to a site 2 days ago that infected me, gave me a whole list of terrible stuff, and just as I was cleaning it off with spybot, Symantec (which I also have the full version of), popped up, froze my computer and I was forced to do a hard reboot. Since then, whenever I boot normally I get to the windows login screen, I login, my desktop background appears and it tells me that windows is loading.

You have a Backdoor Trojan present on your pc A Backdoor is a software program that gives an attacker unauthorized access to a machine and the means for remotely controlling the machine without the user's knowledge. A Backdoor compromises system integrity by making changes to the system that allow it to be used by the attacker for malicious purposes unknown to the user.They are typically installed without user interaction through security exploits, and may allow an attacker to remotely control the infected machine.

Okay... This is gonna be a long story, but please bear with me. Yesterday morning, I thought I'd plug in one of the extra hard drives I had laying around for a little more space on my PC. It was a 40gb IDE drive. I plugged it in to the IDE cable that used to be connected to a DVD rom that I had removed. It didn't work, so I unplugged it. When I restarted the computer and logged back in to Windows, I noticed that my DVD burner was no longer recognized. It still had power, and was spinning contentedly but neither my BIOS or Windows detected it. I decided to ignore that problem until another day. That day turned out to be today. Today when I tried to login to Windows, it logged me in, showed me the desktop for about a second, and then logged me out. From what I've read about this problem, it's due to a virus/spyware cleaner deleting a vital Windows file. I think I could fix the problem if I could somehow get into my computer, but as I can't login, Safe mode won't work, and I have no detected DVD or CD rom to boot from, I'm left with my flash drive. I have Hiren's Boot CD ghosted to a flash drive, but my computer refuses to boot from it. I've tried every option I could find in the BIOS (PhoenixBIOS Vers. 4.06 Rev 1.02.1675) and still no luck. The BIOS is very out of date, but I don't know how to update it with no access to the o/s or CD/DVD rom.

Any advice/help would be appreciated, and feel free to use technical language as I&#... Read more

I've closed a thread in Operating systems and moved it over to here to Security

Issue started as a result that the user could not login to WinXP pro - accessing the user account would present a screen and then logoff immediately.. an endless loop, same for safe mode...loops.
See original thread:

I've been able to user the Recovery Console and get to a command prompt.
I then renamed login.scr to cmd.exe (trick WinXP so I can get in) and waited for the screen saver to start and in it's place now gives me cmd.exe.

I can now enter c:\windows\explorer.exe and have gotten in and to a desk top. I've loaded some of the utilities spybots, adaware etc and just ran stringer.. which showed 7 viruses

I'm displaying the first HiJack THis I've been able to get. I have not fixed anything. Because this one looks like a lot of fun!!?!?

Note: I have not looged off as yet to see if I can get back in. Reduced the Screen save wait to one minute so I can get back in quickly (cmd.exe).

The big issue as I see it is the looping but this HJT might give me (us) some clues.

Hope you can help.

I was given a laptop by my friend. I attempted to fix it cause it kept crashing on him. So my first idea was to try a fresh install. I can get the computer to install Windows fine. It will load up the first time fine. Once I attempt to install updates, or sometime around then is usually where it begins to go downhill. I don't know if it's caused by me trying to install updates or if the computer is just crashing after a certain amount of time.
After the first time it shuts down it will attempt to start, get to right before the login screen.(when the screen first turns blue) It then begins an endless loop of restarting and trying to load. It then tryed to scan the hard drive for consistency, which got it back into windows for maybe 5 secs. Then back to the loop.
I have changed the battery, harddrive, ram, and the processor seems to be staying at a good temp. I have been able to keep it on if I stay in bios or in the menu when im reinstalling Windows.
I am all out of ideas so if anyone can help me out, I would greatly appreciate it.

Answer:crashes just before login, attempts to restart itself in an endless loop.

I am trying to configure our webserver so that anyone accessing it needs to enter a uid and pwd.
this seems to be quite a simple feature of IIS at first look
the website works lovely but i cant get iis to pick up the user information
I have now installed active directory making the server a login server as it seemed that it needed me to do this
now instead of the 'cannot locate login server message' it appears the uid and pwd are not being recognized or the security isnt set correctly to allow users to access webfolders
is there some security that needs to be set in active directory to allow this? or is there something further i need to do
there are loads of settings i have made to get this far
if someone wants to see them i will post them all


Answer:IIS and login for website

I assume you are using Windows authentication. Do the users have the right to log on locally? You should not need AD, but it should also not prevent it working. We use NT4 DCs, so there is no AD yet. All users need to be able to log on locally, even though they are accessing through the web.

Hope this helps.

I'm going to describe in as much detail the problem I have, and what I can access, and what works and doesn't work.
My Surface Pro is stuck in a start-up loop - 'Preparing Automatic Repair' with a circle going round, flashes a quick look at my desktop which says 'Evaluation Copy. Build 10122' and flashes and empty cmd prompt box, before changing the screen to the VOL DOWN + POWER "Startup Options" Screen. From here nothing seems to work. I also have the ability to hold VOL UP + POWER to see the UEFI Firmware Settings screen.

Right off the bat, from the first page of the Startup Options pages, I cannot 'Use A Device'. The Surface Pro recovery usb pen I created by downloading the Recovery iso from MS's website will not work; nor will a Windows 7 OEM Installation CD that I tried using via an external USB DVD drive. Both Media are recognised, the usb pen as a "UEFI: SANDISK Cruzer Blade 1.27", and the external DVD Drive as a USB Class.

Well yesterday I had left my computer on (logged in on Windows 7) and when i got back the computer was in a continuous boot sequence (starts to boot, then after about 4 seconds shuts down and then over and over again). I reset the power from the back and turned it back on and it started up but with a different boot screen (Dynamic Energy Saver Quad6 Screen lol) and not the "black" one that normally comes up. It happened again last night and I think it happens when I leave my computer logged on in Windows 7. The weird thing was that after I reset the power from the socket (which stopped the loop) and turned it back on, it had me still logged on as a user and everything was like it was before I had left (basically like hibernate, except that hibernate is disabled on my computer..)

Well anyway I managed to get rid of the "new" quad6 boot screen that kept coming up, and got my original "black" one up. I did this by fiddling around in BIOS with 1-2 settings which I can't remember at the moment. But I have noticed now after this incident my mouse and keyboard are not detected UNTIL the login screen comes up, which means I can't select the OS i want to boot (because i cant select it with keyboard so it automatically boots windows 7) nor can I boot in safe mode..

How can I resolve it so that mouse/keyboard is detected as soon as the computer is started, like it was before.

Help would be really appreciated!

Answer:Continuous boot loop + keyboard/mouse not detected before login

try reset the bios, disconnect the power cable/open the pc case/reset the cmos "jumper " usually handy to the battery. or remove the battery for a minute this usually changes the bios to default settings. peplace the battery and power up to the check the settings for the devices..

Hello and thank you for reading my post.
I will try to make this as short as I can but with as much detail as needed.

About 4 years ago I created a system of win xp pro got all my programs that are needed and activated windows, Plus got all windows updates that was out at the time. After all was installed and running good, I ghosted my system via Norton ghost 2003 and put the images onto DVD " two disk". A few months later I had been playing around with some things that cause my system to crash, ok no problem, I reloaded the ghost images from the dvd's and system was back up and running. So I know that the ghost images work as I have used norton ghost for the last 10 years. At the time that I made the ghost image my main "os system" was installed on a 80gig drive with the drive letter of "H". I am not going to give the reason why I did it on "H" as it really does not matter. But as time went on I made changes to the system as in taking some drives out and so on. Moving up in time a little bit, I went out and got a new larger hard drive of 250 gig to replace the 80 gig that the system was running on. When doing this I had only 2 hard drives in the system plus 2 dvd/cd rom drives. I backed things up that did not have anything to do with the system and put them on dvds. In doing this I cut the size of the drive down so that I could make a new ghost image that would be about the same size as before. When making the new image of the dr... Read more

Hi priyamvaidya, and welcome to TSF.

First of all i would like to respectfully remind you that it is not good practice to create multiple threads about the same problem and is in fact, against forum rules.

Secondly, i wonder if you are aware that uninstalling Norton software is not as simple as clicking on remove.

Please click on this link, Norton Removal Tool Download and run the tool.

Even after a reinstall it still may be possible that Norton left remnants of its software which could cause problems.

I personally would never recommend security bundles such as this as they are resource hoggers and could very well be slowing down your system. Please click on this link to some very good advice on protection using much smaller, free to use programs.

Hello all,

I've been trying to connect and login into this site at my school (I'm a teacher).

When I try to Login, it brings me back to the home site and doesn't log me in.

I've been in contact with Learnboost, and tried everything they told me to do, from clearing the cache to turning off firewalls (all that I know of) -- nothing on that front worked.

On my machine, I've so far tried clearing the cache, reinstalling the browser, reinstalling the network card, turning of firewalls, white listing the website on the firewalls on my machine (that I know of)...everything I can think of aside from clearing the drive, I've tried. No luck.

The kicker, is that with other computers running on the same network, I can login without trouble, so it must be something localized to my machine that I don't know of. Also, I can log in successfully with this machine by going through a proxy...I could login just fine, however it's slow and buggy.

Thank you for any help you can give -- I'll try to give as much information as I can.

Hi skallzz,

I tried the address and got through to a login page, which would seem to be correct. I cannot say what happens after you login, because I don't have an account.

Have you had problems with this site before, and are you accessing it in the same way either directly or through another page? It is possible that the site is undergoing some form of maintenance, and, depending on what is involved, errors can range from the site being totally unavailable to a number of other errors, including the one you received.

Running other programs can interfere with the tools we use and have unpredicted results. Also I need to know what is going on with your machine at any time

If possible avoid using the computer for other tasks until we finish the cleaning process
The reason for this is because it can make the malware infection worst and more difficult to clean. Some malware can download updates from the internet when you use the computer

There's a lot of "maintenance" currently going on on the PCA website, increased spam filters etc. and I know that others have had the same problem as you are having. You could try another browser or wait a while to see if anything changes. I don't think there is any way of editing your profile.
You could register again with another email address or as I have suggested wait to see if this problem rights itself. You could also try clearing your browser cache to see if it helps but my opinion is that the problem lies with the PCA website at this current time.

Hi. There are 4 days now since I cannot login into the infolinks website. I have messaged support twice and they told me that their system shows that i have logged about each day into the site.
What happens is that when I press the login button on to the infolinks website (with the good user and passwd) nothing happens. Is like that login button does not have any action. I push and push and the login page does not change.
I am using Win 10 and firefox
What I tried:
-clear cookies and history
-use different browsers (IE, Chrome, Safari)
-assure that I am on the good publisher site
-press login then trying to go directly from the navigation bar to the publisher dashboard, with the good dashboard address (It shows me again a similar login page where I get the same result logging-nothing)
-use a different Internet provider (my mobile provider), a different IP and a different device (my tablet)
-use the facebook login (it says my account email is not linked with the facebook login)
-print the HTML source page of the publisher login and send it to infolinks support

Nothing worked so far, yet they told me that their system shows I was logged in at about each of my attempts.
What is wrong, please? Can anyone help me with this?

I would have thought clearing cookies would have solved your problem. I would have also suggested add-ons or possibly security software as something to look at but the same add-ons and security software would have to be identical with all the browsers and devices you've used which I'm thinking would not be the case.

Would you be interested in installing the Firefox browser. Firefox provides excellent native Page Information where you can deal with website specific cookies directly (add-ons can do this but it's always nice to have this native to the browser). I personally use Pale Moon which I really do like (don't much care for the direction Firefox is headed post version 42 anymore), but since Firefox does provide the best access to cookies that I'm aware of I thought I'd just suggest this to you.

hey guys,
im kinda of new to this so if this seems stupid do forgive. I am trying to set up a script or combination of scripts that will allow me to not only open multiple websites in the same browser (separate tabs if you will), but i would also like to able to have autohotkey or some other script log me in automatically to each site. I am not super advanced in scripting but i am a fast learner so feel free to to post anything that might be considered "difficult". I am talking batch, vbscript, java, autohotkey, and anything else that is standard windows languages that do not require any extra third-party applications (except for autohotkey or simple little programs or binaries). Any help is appreciated.

what i have so far:

@echo off
cd C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\Application
start chrome.exe "website1" "website2" "website3" "website4" "website5" "website6"

this opens 6 web pages within chrome.
but thats all i got so far.
(using google chrome btw, can setup for another if need be)

Thanks in advance!

Answer:multiple website login script

@Echo off
Start C:/Programs/Chrome.exe

the directories you have are more likely for the chrome profile for theme add-ons, etc... yours with mine with saved bookmarks may work if you can find the bookmarks directory
adding the save websites bookmarks to the website1 website2 etc....
I am not a script or batch expert though I have played with custom batch files but I am a newbie with them.

The organisation I have just joined has a website notice board which can be accessed by its outworkers to read emails of general interest. To access it I have been given a series of numbers in groups of 2 then 3 then 3 then 2, the first three groups separated by a full stop and then /exchange/ my name.Each time I try this I get Access Denied.I have Symantec and ONSPEED. Have I got to adjust some settings somewhere?

Answer:cant access website with numeric login

It might be your firewall blocking their severs access to your computer, try disabling the firewall temporarily and see if you can gain access. If you can then access, have a word with the organisations IT department, they should be able to tell you what ports that need to be open.
