    Try a "Safe Boot" to see if this corrects the issue (this takes much longer than a regular boot).

    If that fails, see if you can startup in Single User Mode (hold down command-s keys at startup)

    If you can, then type these commands (in bold) followed by the return key:

    /sbin/fsck -fy

    If there are errors reported repeat the command (up to 6 times) until you get a clean pass.

    Then type:

    mount -uw /

    rm -rf /Users/yourshortname/Library/Preferences/com.apple.loginwindow.plist

    where "yourshortname" is the name of your home folder (usually your short name as an administrator)

    rm -rf /Users/yourshortname/Library/Preferences/loginwindow.plist

    reboot

    See if that fixes your problem. I also suggest you download the 10.5.3 combo updater and install that in Safe Boot mode (even if you have upgraded already).
