Wink cant login username

I'm using suse 10.1. I used my computer for a bit this morning, checked email, bank account, etc. then I closed email (evolution) when I tried to open it later, it would not open. I tried a browser, it would not open. So i rebooted, and now I can't login with my username and pwd. I can login as root. I did so, and went to Yast and typed in a new pwd for my uname, but to no avail. whenever I type my user name and then pwd, the system after a bit goes back to the username dialog box. it wont boot to the OS and ends up looping, it seems.
Thanks for the help,

ok. somehow I got it to work. I went in to users in Yast and checked passwordless login. Well it still asked for a pwd, and this time it didn't loop, and booted the OS. Suggestions are still welcome, though. Thanks
