try using 'system restore' to a time and date before the problem started.

go to start, programes, accessories, system tools, then click 'system restore' to open the function.

good luck

Do you have the Windows XP Home installation CD or is this computer one that was manufacturered by a major computer manufacturer (Dell, HP, etc) that came with Windows XP preloaded and without a Windows CD?

If so, what is the brand and model of your computer?

hi, zacho,

see if you can start in safe mode with command prompt. if so, type 'control' and press enter. if your control panel opens up, click 'performance and maintenance' and if that goes ok, you may have the 'system restore' option on the left of the window. this works on my machine, xp pro, so not sure if it will do for xp home. maybe worth a try!

good luck

If you can start in safe mode with command prompt you can initiate system restore directly with a command.

Type the following command at a command prompt, and then press ENTER

%systemroot%\system32\restore\rstrui.exe

If you do not have either -
Disconnect the computer from the internet, disconnect all external peripherals (speakers, printer, scanner, etc)

and try the following:

Many Dell computers came with Restore Partitions (Imaged) on hidden partitions on their hard drives.

Try the following:

Dell System Restore How to access
1. Power the computer on.
2. When the Dell screen appears press and hold the <Ctrl> key on the keyboard, press the <F11> key, then release them both at the same time.
The Dell PC Restore by Symantec window appears.
