Perhaps this article will be of some help
" www.geekstogo.com/forum/XP-logs-then-logs-out-Missing-userinit-exe-file-t161672.html "

Considering how common this problem seems to be you'd think some one by now has a utility to fix it....I don't know of a click and go yet.

I apologize I just realized this is XP home edition. The software I removed was from Disney among other things that I did not recognize. Wife's PC. I tried the steps suggested the files recommended to modify aren't in my c:\windows\system32 directory. Any other thoughts?

Not recognizing a software program is not sufficient reason to remove it....as you've found out.

Run a Windows Repair.
