when i start my laptop up, it doesnt come up with the welcome screen, it comes up with the old log-in log-out system and i want to change it back. i went to control panel to change it back and it said i cant change it back because of the RtlGina2.dll... what does this mean and what do i have to do to get it back to normal?
Have you try download the file from
It will help you fix this error.
Harie Godden,
you HAVN`T read the post correctly, he says CANT logon because his system wont boot, doug knox fix ONLY works on a booting system
sorry for the misunderstanding.
But he said "i went to control panel to change it back", so it means he can using control panel, so I think he can enter the os system.
I am getting this error, and cannot enter the OS.

What can I do??
missing RtlGina2.dll, cannot boot windows.. It shows me this error and restarts the computer. "The Logon user interface DLL RtlGina2.dll failed to load" Same thing in safe mode.

I cannot get into windows.
Someone please shoot me an email if you have an idea
As the computer is booting press and hold your "F8 Key" which should bring up the "Windows Advanced Options Menu" . Use your arrow keys to move to "Safe Mode" and press your Enter key.
Go to Start>run,input "regedit",press enter.
Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/Software/Microsoft/Windows NT/Current Version/WINLOGON
Delete the key "GINAdll".
Bryan G,
it does the same thing in safe mode, can't log in.
go safe mode command prompt or something , worked for me
Alex Steiner,
I have the same problem. After I installed the wireless adapter, the welcome screen was disabled. In an attempt to fix it, I shifted the RtlGina.dll to my desktop. The OS doesn't load at all. I have tried command prompt, but because the account I was using was not the primary/original account, I get the "Access is Denied" when trying to COPY.

Is there any way around it?
Worked under safe mode with comand prompt. It asked for an account login, so as admin it was no problem. I ran it from a USB drive and it detected and fixed the problem. 1,000,000 thanks!
Hello, I have the same problem but i cant open the OS under any mode, the closest i get is using command prompt which brings up the log in window, unfortunately it wont accept my password, i cant even write in it.Any suggestions will be most appreciated.
Hey Ian, I have the same problem now. Did you ever determine how to actually get into Windows or a command prompt?
same problem- but i cannot get past the bluescreen with the msg that trlgina,dll failed to load. cannot log in in any mode. H E L P
and I have windows 2000
Same thing i bought the comptur of my aunt sonu 2000 vaio. Everytime i logged in it ask for user domain password. i Would just click cancel and i could still use the computer. But i upgraded from windows me to windows xp. The install went well but now that same log in windows pops up. I cant even access the operating system. because it asks for the user name and password. any idea on how to override or create a new password

Satoshi ,
My thanks goes to Florian for their post dated: May 06, 2009

Although it is an old thread and an old post it has helped me a great deal and stopped me from having a mental break down!

I had the same error and thought I would correct it by deleting RtlGina.DDL from my system folder and all this did was prevent me from logging in at all!

By following Florian's simple and easy to follow instructions (I'm rubbish with computers) I managed to fix it and can use the welcome screen and quick user switching again!

A thousand thanks!
Thanks Florian, i used your safe mode and delete the registry key 'gina.dll' and this worked for me. Use this method if you cannot load OS to run Dougs script.
