[I posted this in the General Forum, but haven't gotten any help, so I am
posting this here today...]
OK, I am no super-guru so maybe I am missing some way to solution this that I
should know, but I am stumped. (It is also 3:30 AM!)
When I boot now, the Vista screen comes up saying WELCOME and then it negins
to me into Vista. The HDD spins away, the mouse cursor appears, but then the
UAC pops up an ALLOW request for winlogon.exe.
This has not happened in the 2 months I have been using Vista. Even if I
ALLOW the request, the system never kicks in on the screen..
If I open TASK MANAGER and then FILE - NEW TASK and find Windows Explorer
and click it, the system returns to normal.
When I reboot, problem reappears.
When I disable UAC (just experimenting), the system does not give me the
ALLOW request, but it does the same thing (I have ot manually start
explorer.exe in the WINDOWS directory.)
I have even done a few system restores to saves prior to this problem
arising. But they have no impact.
