My Windows Logs Me Out As Soon As I Log On

June 11, 2009 at 10:48:53
Specs: Windows XP, 4 gigabytes
Earlier today I was 'battling' a malicious spyware called Security Systems 2009 manually by deleting KeyVars I believe, and after the restart, logins usually go like this:
HP_Administrator
<No Password>
But as soon as I log in, it logs me off and goes on standby. I am aware that I deleted a key called logint or something like that. Is this the reason for my problem? Can I fix it?

Yeah, that key you deleted (or something like that) might kinda be important. It's hard to help you repair what you did if you can't say exactly what you did.

Not generally a good idea to go deleting things from the registry when you don't know what they are, or when you don't even bother to write down what you deleted so you can undo it later if it breaks things. Would you randomly start removing unknown parts from your car if it was having engine trouble?

I understand, I am currently looking for the XP CD to boot from. In theory, I should be able to boot from CD and repair it, right?

Okay. SO I know I am running on Windows XP Media Edition. But the intallation files are IN the computer. Whenever it boots up. I hit F10 to go to the Recovery Menu. But get nothing. So I try to Boot From CD on Windows XP Home Edition, and I do not want to format it. If I were to install XP Home Edition WITH Media Edition, would the end-result be a not-working computer?

Forget the above question please. Instead I overwrote the Windows XP Media Edition with Home Edition and a new problem has risen: All of the previous files are still on the computer, but my desktop is blank, and it doesn't act like it's installed, my Mcaffe isn't activated, and my audio Hardware and such do not function properly. Will this change once I get the latest updates automatically? Or is there something I must to to get it to fully function properly?

Sounds like you need to install drivers.
