    BIG problem with Winlogon.exe

    I tried to use minlogon but had some problems with shutdown so I changed back to Winlogon.exe again. Rebooted and came to the old style login prompt. Tried to log in and it seemed to work but then windows logs me out and I get back to the login prompt. I can't get anywhere at all! Tried safe mode and last working config with no luck. Please help!

    Try pressing Ctrl+Alt+DEL. It will bring you to the classic login page. Login from there. Most probably it's your 'personal settings' got resetted.

    I encounter that problem from time to time as well. Above should fix it, well at least for me!

    Will probably due to your registry changes, I've had this happen before and in the past have had to rebuild from scratch. Sorry.

    It must have something to do with the reg changes. When I change back to minlogon everything worked. Someone said those reg values was ignored by winlogon if you change back but I guess not

    there's only one reg value added which is need for minlogon. winlogon is not affected by that reg value. did you by any chance delete your user profile directories after switching to winlogon?

    Ok I looked at the reg file I ran and it was NOT a single entry Look at the file submitted by SWC, second post in this thread Using minLogon to speed up booting and decrease footprint

    Thought it just contained the DWORD 0000017 thing but I was wrong. Can anyone please look at the file and tell me what to change back.

    you're supposed to use only one reg entry. the other one is the first reg file I posted, but then after more testing and research I found that it only needed one value.
