Hello all ,
Recently my computer began stopping in the middle of booting up and gives the following message.

"windows could not upgrade the file %1 from %2.
windows can not upgrade one or more systems files before starting.
may not start or run properly"
On pressing enter it then carries on and finishes boot up .
Can anybody tell me why . By the way I have Windows ME and i have very little knowladge about computers
Thanks Shortyj

Hi Grinler
I went to the microsoft support page that you sent me and managed to successfully use method 2.

Thanks very much for your help.
