Fix: Logon Process Initialization Failure in Windows 7

If when you try to start your Windows computer, the computer stops at the logon process and you are unable to proceed further – then this article may interest you.

Not only will your logon process not start, but in addition you may also receive the following error message:

Logon Process Initialization Failure
Interactive logon process initialization has failed.
Please consult the event log for more details.

This issue could occur when you use the automatic logon feature.

You can try to restart your computer and see if you can recover from this issue.

If you need to view the Event Logs, you can try our Windows Event Viewer Plus, a portable freeware app that lets you view Event Logs faster than the default in-built Windows Event Viewer and do more with them.

If it doesn’t help, you can request for and download Hotfix 379793 at KB2615701 and apply it.

The hotfix is meant for Windows 7 and  Windows Server 2008 R2 operating systems.

If nothing works for you, you may have to consider running Startup Repair.

Hope something helps!
