      Starting a new thread as it is kind of a new issue.

      I managed to use DaRT to disable the windows installer, windows module installer and windows update services.

      Upon restarting, I can choose a user account, enter a password and login.

      Hooray, or so it seemed. As soon as I get to the “preparing your desktop” screen, the computer reboots.

      DaRT shows nothing in the event logs. How can I troubleshoot/repair this?

      I’ve tried SFC, what else is there?

      Do an SFC check for winlogon.exe to see if it is the culprit.

      Run this in an elevated cmd:

      SFC /SCANFILE=c:WINDOWSSYSTEM32WINLOGON.EXE

      If get a “Windows Resource Protection did not find any integrity violations”

      Try this solution:

      Open command prompt with elevated privileges:

      SET USERPROFILE=C:USERSUSERNAME ; replace username with your actual username
      SET HOMEPATH=USERSUSERNAME ; replace username with your actual username

      Are you positive your logon didn’t get hijacked via malware infection? It sure is acting like it. I’m not a genius or an expert in this field so don’t hold me to it just my 2 cents.
