You're probably best to check for corrupt System Files. You will probably need your XP disk if errors are found.

Start/Run type sfc(space)/scannow and wait while Windows checks the files.

A utility such as SIW will snow you under with system info - http://www3.sympatico.ca/gtopala/about_siw.html

Tried sfc scannow , I got a split second flash of a black box, this re-occurred, obviously there is something wrong, but I don't know what ??

Sorry, I'm not sure if this is still the right forum ?

Try typing cmd first, Jove.

( Sorry, I'm not sure if this is still the right forum ?) You may get a better result in the XP FORUM.

Related problems?
