I have followed this instruction.Steps to configure Windows to use a Normal startup state
After you used the clean boot to resolve your problem, you can follow these steps to configure Windows XP to start normally.
- Click Start, and then click Run.
- Type msconfig, and then click OK.
The System Configuration Utility dialog box is displayed.
- Click the General tab, click Normal Startup - load all device drivers and services, and then click OK.
- When you are prompted, click Restart to restart the computer.
After doing this my taskbar remains tan in color, its not a huge deal, but I'm curious why it wont reset properly.
