Hi,

Luckily I have Ubuntu on the computer.

This just recently happened. My XP Professional was acting funny so I restarted. It was because my Windows Media Player was not starting up. Then when I tried to log-in again, by clicking my account, it loads it, but before I pass the login screen my computer restarts. I tried all of the f8 options, safe mode even does the same thing.

I did get something, when I disabled restart on error, I got something about vct3216.dll being messed up (I forgot what it said).

So my original account I usually use does not work, the other one does. Except that the internet, other programs, and some drivers will not work. It's as if it's a fresh start.

I like Ubuntu, but I would like to be able to use my XP once in a while, please help! :thumbsup:

Try running the System Restore.

Start> All Programs> Accessories> System Tools> System Restore.

When this opens make sure that "Restore my computer to an earlier time" is chosen, and click on Next>.

The dates appearing in bold are the dates that you can restore to, click on the date that you want and then click Next> to start the System Restore. This may take a long time to complete, and when it is done it will restart your computer. When the computer restarts and you have logged on as the administrator a Restoration Complete page will appear, click on OK to complete the process.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
