I just reinstalled windows, which I have done many times before. But this time after reinstalling windows the computer is not running properly. The computer restarts itself when windows is loading while boot up. I suspect the problem is being caused by one of those tune up utility programs ( I think it was Pc Tools) which I used to change up the boot up screen. And from then on I have been having this problem of computer restarting. So I reinstalled windows again and again but this problem is persisting. After 10 or 15 restarts windows loads up. But then after I restart again, it is back to the problem of restarts while booting up. Sometime I get the message " cant find or corrupt WINDOWS/SYSTEM32/CONFIG/SYSTEM , you can attempt to repair using the original xp cd by pressing r at startup" which I tried.
Another problem might be this time I used the full NTFS format of the drive, I usually use the ntfs (quick ) option .
But I am convinced that it is the changing of the boot screen that caused my problem, because when the windows loads up for the first time after reinstalling windows there is a message like " some registry thing was causing a problem but was recovered"
So some help please
