Windows 7: Windows 7 not logging in properly

Windows 7 not logging in properly

Hello Seven Forums,

I have a strange problem with my Windows 7 machine, it goes through all the motions of a normal startup until I get to the user login screen and select my profile, the screen says welcome, changes to say preparing your desktop, then the screen goes black for a moment and goes back to the user login screen.

This problem started this morning, my computer had been on sleep all night, and when I tried to wake it up, it gave me this user profile thing, which surprised me because this used to happen only when I did a fresh boot, never after it was snoozing.

I have tried using my admin profile as well, with the same result. Could someone advise me as to how I can get to my desktop? I would greatly appreciate it, it's really annoying!

By the way, this problem has happened before, in fact my computer was out of commission for months, until I fixed it yesterday (or thought I did) and it appeared to be working, that's why I was so surprised when it started up again. Just wanted to make this clear!

See what windows does at startup and while logging off
to see what windows is doing before logging off navigate to 'HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System', in the registry, create a DWORD value called 'verbosestatus' and set it to 1 (u might want to try this if ur comp is taking too long to shutdown or start)
