JSI Tip 1339. System Cannot Log You On - c0000017.

If you receive the subject message when trying to log on locally, it may be due to a memory leak.

Network users may receive a RPC Server Busy or similar RPC error.

If you have the Shut Down button on the Windows NT Security dialogue, you can shutdown to temporarily elleviate the problem. If no Shut Down button is available, you will have to use SHUTDOWN.EXE.

If you still can't logon after the restart, use REG to set the Start value of third party services to 0x3 (manual).

If you can't, try tip 0182.

When the system is stabled enough to use, see tips 0088 and 0417.

NOTE You can use Regedt32 on another Windows NT computer to Select Computer, instead of REG.
