For some reason I have 3 options to boot into. XP Pro, xp pro back up, and "1". I'm not sure what "1" is. I loaded into it and it is no different. Is it safe to go into boot.ini and delete? This is what my boot.ini file looks like:

[boot loader]
[operating systems]
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(2)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /noexecute=optin /fastdetect /TUTag=QRZM2B /Kernel=TUKernel.exe
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(2)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional (TuneUp Backup)" /noexecute=optin /fastdetect /TUTag=QRZM2B-BAK
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(2)\WINDOWS="1" Win

Hi peefyloo -
Is this creating a problem, or can you just Auto Boot to XP Pro without any hassle ??
Are you just looking for Information on why it seems that SPYBOT wants to save a backup - -
If you have, or once had, Spybot Search & Destroy installed, this has created the items you see with its TeaTimer backup section -
>>multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(2)\WINDOWS="1" Win [spybotsd]<< The last item refers to the Spybot S&D backup -

Thank You -
