Userinit logon application has stopped working error
Hi, I recently bought a HP G62 model with windows 7 professional and an intel i5 processor. I uninstalled a few programs from my laptop and since then I have been getting a "userinit logon application has stopped working" error every time I start my computer.
It displays the following details:
Problem Event Name:APPCRASH
Fault Module Name:protector.dll_unloaded
Fault Module Version:0.0.0.0
Fault Module Timestamp:4f2acbcc
Additional Information 1:0a9e
Additional Information 2:0a9e372d3b4ad19135b953a78882e7
Additional Information 3:0a9e
Additional Information 4:0a9e372d3b4ad19135b953a78882e7
There are no other problems with the functioning of the laptop except that I have to forcibly it shut down instead of the normal automatic process. Can you help?

This issue occurs if the Userinit key in the Windows registry has been modified. For example, this issue may occur if the Userinit key has a value but no binary data.
Steps I would suggest are:
Boot the computer in safe mode and try making these changes in registry:
Method 2: Check the Userinit value and binary data in registry
Important: The instructions below contain steps that tell you how to modify the registry. However, serious problems might occur if you modify the registry incorrectly. Therefore, make sure that you follow these steps carefully. For added protection, back up
the registry before you modify it. Then, you can restore the registry if a problem occurs.
a. Start Registry Editor. To do this, click Start, type regedit in the Start Search box, and then press ENTER.

c. Locate and then click the following registry key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon
d. In the right pane, right-click Userinit, and then click Modify.
e. In the Value data box, type hard disk:\Windows\System32\userinit.exe, and then click OK.
Note: The hard disk placeholder refers to the disk on which Windows 7 is installed.
