I have tried several ideas such as:

chown pi:pi .Xauthority choxn -R pi /home/pi

and I have deleted .Xauthority

But my pi keeps returning to the Shut-Down / Log-In screen no matter what I do.

I can get to terminal (ctrl-alt-F1) and do what ever I want, but the desktop won't finish loading.

Password is correct and working, just returns to the same screen.

I faced a similar problem about 10 days ago. And I had to reinstall the OS. Anything you change or delete related with boot can affect the OS badly. My suggestion is you should re install the OS
