I don't have a webcam at all...
when I log into a standard account, it says welcome and then immediately says logging off, then to the log-in screen again. The other day, I was testing things in safe mode as you instructed, I clicked the switch user option and tried to log in a standard account, then of course I couldn't, it says welcome and then immediately log off, after that, I can't log into a standard account anymore in normal mode....

Try creating new Admin and Standard accounts, and log into them. Do you have the same problem?

I've tried those already, I can log into an admin account but not a standard account.

Hi,

I finally got some free time to update this and I found the cause of the problem and I think I don't need to do a repair install.
I looked up the Event Viewer, under Custom Views>Administrative Events, I found out whenever I tried to log in, I got this Warning event

Event ID 4006, Winlogon:
"The Windows logon process has failed to spawn a user application. Application name: . Command line parameters: C:\Program Files\Soluto\soluto.exe /userinit."


but I had already uninstalled Soluto and I can't find any Soluto entries in MSCONFIG. So I opened Autorun , under the Logon tab, I found the userinit registry and had an image path "C:\program files\Soluto\soluto.exe" which doesn't exist anymore.

I then edited the Registry Value of Userinit via Registry Editor
the value was
Code:
 C:\Windows\System32\userinit.exe, C:\Program Files\Soluto\soluto.exe /userinit
and I changed it to
Code:
C:\Windows\System32\userinit.exe,
and problem solved...I don't know why it only affects Standard accounts, but I think Soluto really should undo everything and shouldn't leave registries in Users' PC after uninstallation. I guess it really IS an "Anti-frustration Software", leaving users frustrations after uninstalling it.
Anyway, Thanks.

Regards
Shutdo

Well thanks for that update Shutdo, we do appreciate it!

I'm kicking myself now for not looking for that kind of error; next time!
