    |Windows 8| Auto log off when entering password.

    Hey guys,

    Registered a account here because i'm completely lost at this point.
    So yesterday I did a few things on my girlfriends laptop, nothing special.
    Shut down the laptop, girlfriend tried to log in a few hours later and upon entering her password she gets kicked back out to the login screen.
    Searched google, tried alot of solutions but non work.
    Booted mini windows xp from hirensbootcd, checked registery and nothing fancy there in the winlogon strings.
    I did manage to enable the guest account and add an extra administrator account. The guest account works (no taskbar tho) but everything else seemed to work. The freshly made admin account did not work, same story as my girlfriends account, enter password > back to login screen.

    I hope that you guys have some possible solutions I can try.

    Kind regards,
