Default System logging problem

when i log into my computer, the user, it will say welcome logging in Beck.
It will then say a moment later logging off Beck

This has been going on for a week and has been extremely annoying because
that cpu is my main one.

I have Windows Xp home and have had it since 2006.

Sounds like you have gotten infested with something that has affected your
userinit and until you are cleaned up and the file is replaced/repaired -
this will continue to happen.

You would be best served doing a Google search for "replace userinit.exe in
Windows XP". Perform those steps, get back into Windows XP, scan with
SuperAntiSpyware, MalwareBytes and make sure you start backing up all your
data.

If replacing the userinit.exe based off what you find doing Google searches
is beyond your ability - perform a repair installation (in-place upgrade)
and that should replace the file for you - but you will have to re-install a
lot of updates and perhaps even re-install IE.
