Hi - I am a teacher and have to log on to my school issued laptop with my name and password. When I do this, I get the windows xp screen with my own background picture on, then I also get a window come up on it saying 'running logoff scripts' then it goes back to having to put my username and password on.

Please help.

Have you tried pressing F8 while booting up, then selecting Last Known Good Configuration on that screen?

Maybe this'll help
failing that you may need to talk to your school network administrator (possibly is trying to connect with the schools server?, is there any other domains etc listed in the logon requester?).

See if you can get into safe mode with command prompt.

If you can, At the command prompt, type

C:\windows\system32\restore\rstrui.exe <Press Enter>

That will bring up system restore - run it back to before the problem started.

Be careful doing any repair installs or removing reg entries, it may very well stop you logging in back at school.

May pay to talk to the schools tech people.

The school may have deployed a script via GP that might be stuffing it up...

What happens when you try safe mode? any errors?
