PLEASE SUPPLY RELEVANT INFORMATION:
Operating System Version: XP Pro - pre-SP1
Problem Application Name & Version: OS boot
Problem Hardware Make & Model: Generic Athlon 1400, MSI KT266 pro MoBo
Error Messages:[soem problem with] logon dll - MSgina

After the required restart folowing the last automatic update Dec 20, I have been unable to logon, and in fact can only access the Recovery Console. I have been restoering some of the effected DLL's, but have made no progress.

Has anyone had any experience with this problem? How do I find out which compatable collection of DLLs I need to restore?

Thanks

this is what I have on this

Warning: Potential System Failure
Attempting to use a new GINA can cause a system to fail to boot correctly. If a new GINA is created, the registry is changed to use this new GINA, and attempts to restart the system are met with a Failed to Load xyz.dll error message.
Recovering from a GINA-related System Failure
Recovery is possible without reinstalling the system. This requires having a boot disk, or equivalent workaround, that will boot the system without using a normal hard disk boot.
To recover from this situation:
1.   Boot the auxiliary system

I wish! That was the first thing I tried. It isn't that simple, there are other DLLs and maybe winlogon.exe involved. About 6 upgrades were done at the same time (before the restart). I haven't yet sorted out which to revert to.

Wouldn't you think Recovery Console would allow System restore? Or use of Regedit? Or at least not have the advanced features disabled by default? At least in XP PRO?!

Thanks, I already read this. Interesting but not helpful.

I think the MSGINA.DLL error report is a red herring anyway. And since uou can't use regedit in Recovery Console, you can't do much anyway!

Thanks (anyway)

If you boot off the CD, and choose 'repair' (something like that, you will actually go into Recovery Console where YOU get to 'repair' it, all by yourself. Hopefully you knew how to enable the useful features of RC (like wildcard copies!) BEFORE the crash!

Thanks again, m$!

(BTW with NT4, IT actually tried to do an automatic repair.)
