  • 1. XP Pro SP2 Windows Update
    Anyone know why after updating computer xp starts to boot and gets almost to the welcome screen and then shuts down and repeats the process. There is no error message. If I restore from backup the compter works fine.
  • 2. Desktop / Start
    MSN Messenger and Roxio Drag-to-Disc icons appear automatically on my desktop when I start my computer in the morning. How can I stop them from appearing there? There's an *outside* chance they might be the cause for the 2 Linksys Wireless Access Violation error messages I'm getting each morning, because when I close them, the red X leaves from in front of my Wireless icon in the system tray.

  • 3. MSEdit
    I think my 73 year old memory has failed me. I seem to recall that I used to be able to start>run>msedit and get a screen showing what was running in memory (TSR) and also what was in the startup list. Now when I enter the msedit I get a no program found. Am I loosing it? BTW, I'm using WinXP with SP2 and a whole bunch of updates from MS. Don Jacobs
  • 4. Autoplay and Auto Insert Notification Not working Xp Home
    My Autoplay and Auto Insert Notification quit working . I have checked all the appropriate registry entries ( all were correct) and tried Microsoft's Autofix tool and still no solution . I have noted that the autoplay tab is missing when I right click on the Cd drive and look at properties. I have also noted that the service " Shell Hardware Detection" is missing in the list of services and I suspect that this missing service is the cause of the problem. Anyone know how I can re-install this service and how it came to be missing in the first place?
  • 5. comp had error, reinstalled itself, a lot of things lost - help!
    I started my computer this morning only for it to have a black error screen talking of some system error or another. It told me to type in 'r' to sort it out, so I did, and after 20+ minutes of it repairing itself, I realised it was actually reinstalling itself entirely, to the point that, when it was done, it was greeting me as though it were a new computer, asking for basic information and whatnot. When it finally logged in to a generic 'hp_owner' name (that was not the desktop I'd left it as), all the old programs I had previously installed were still there, but everything else I had stored and saved on that username were lost- such as Word files, music files, the lot. I'm just absolutely bothered to hell about it... It's my last day of college today and I can't believe it would happen now- especially since my computer gave no sign of having a problem when I switched it off last night, and now it's acting as though it's brand-bloody-new, except it still has the old programs. There's also no system-restore points left at all. ANY help would be absolutely wonderful.

I need to stop scandisk from starting???

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/

I had to do a deep scandisk con WIN XP HOME and it asked for next time
reboot, it will do the function.

It made the controls and at the end, it wrote that everything was OK.
now I can't reboot the system, it always write the CONTROL IS DONE.

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!
