  • 1. PC Restarting?
    My friend is running Windows XP Pro. All of a sudden his computer started restarting automatically. The error that comes up says the following; NTAUTHORITY\SYSTEM initiated by PRC. It gives him 60 seconds to save his work and then it restarts. I have unticked the box under System failure which says to automatically restart the computer when there is a system failure. Tried running system restore but it won't load. Just wondering if anyone knows what this error is and how to fix this. Thanks all.

    Can Media Player 9 play VCD's? If it can what codec's do you need, because my version doesn't but WinDVD does. -- Paul Woodsford Remove ****NOSPAMPLEASE**** to Reply
  • 3. Can't use Welcome Screen after installing new drive
    Previously, I had a single drive in XP Pro my system with 2 partitions: an NTFS Primary and an NTFS Extended. A while back, I got a new drive, and wanted to migrate my XP Pro installation to it. I transferred the system drive successfully using Casper XP and created a second, primary NTFS partition to act as the new D: drive. I removed the original drive, and rebooted. All was well...except that the XP Welcome Screen was gone...instead, I had the NT/2000 style login box. I added the original drive back to the system as a slave. XP insisted upon using the second partition on THAT drive (the original D: drive) as it's D: drive. But, the Welcome screen came back...and I left it for a while. Recently, I copied the contents of the current D: drive to the secid partition on the master drive...the partition I WANTED to use as D:. Then, I changed the drive letters so that that partition was D:. (Of course, I changed the old D: to another letter). After rebooting, the Welcome screen is gone again. I've tried deactivating and activating it again via the Users dialog...no good. Just as an experiment, I changed the drive letters back...but the Welcome screen didn't return. Anyone know why this happened, and how I can deal with it? Unlike many people, I much prefer the Welcome screen to the other login prompt. Many thanx in advance for any and all suggestions. Michael

I choose the option "let windows find the program on the web" but it comes up empty. I'm having constant trouble ith my mouse now, the system constantly tells me its shutting it self down and proceeds to do so.

I need to stop scandisk from starting???

Postby R2lsYW4 » Fri, 02 Jun 2006 05:46:02 GMT

I selected scandisk to scan each of my partitions while I was in Explore.  
Windows says it can only do it when it restarts so I shut down and let it 
restart.  Now the scandisk starts on the last partition first and when it 
gets to the next one it crashes and restarts the computer.  The whole thing 
starts all over again and keeps rebooting.  I need to stop this loop.  I can 
get access to the hard drive files using another windows install so can 
someone tell me what file to delete to kill the scandisk request???   I am 
using Windows XP Pro on my system. There must be a way to just kill the 
scandisk request before the Windows startup.

You might try putting your computer in Safe Mode and then selecting "Last 
Known Good Configuration" and see if this will get you out of the loop that 
you are in .Go to  http://www.**--****.com/

It made the controls and at the end, it wrote that everything was OK.

shutdown the DEEP CONTROL in SCANDISK, but the system can only boot, and
start again the HDD CONTROL.

You must schedule the task under the Task Scheduler
and use an account that has sufficient privileges to do
the job. Try this in order to find out what's going on:

@echo off
echo %date% %time:~0:5% User=%UserName% Path=%path% > c:\test.log
net stop "Some Service" 1>>c:\test.log 2>c:\test.err

Now have a look at the two log files and all will become clear!
