Howdy.

I downloaded a PSP theme a week ago and installed it on my laptop.

I've tried to delete it, however, the when I shutdown the lappy, the PSP screen pops up.

That isn't tooooo much of a problem. The real problem is when I start up the computer it asks me to "restore windows XP" and some other option (???) before it will start.

Also, I have tried to run the "error checking" tool, but since the instalation of this PSP theme, it will not run.

Help is very much appreciated.

Cheers,

Gary.

I like the Falcon too. I had a '63 model Falcon when I was in high school.
Have you tried System Restore to the point before you installed the software?

Are you American?

Have you seen the F6 Typhoon and GT from Ford Performance Vehicles? VERY sweet cars mate.

No, I haven't tried system restore. It scares me. I don't want to use it in case it wipes files I don't want it to wipe. Also, I've turned the auto restore point thing off becuase I read somewhere it will help speed up my computer.

I've tried searching files (hidden), uninstalling programs, running spyware programs, everything, but I just can't seem to get this PSP thing off my computer.

Not yet. I'll look them up

Hmm.. that is a mistake. Disabling does not improve your system performance. In fact all you do by disabling system restore is position yourself for a clean install if it all goes bad. I use a program call Spybot to scan my system every night and create a fresh restore point. It is very handy if you install software and you need to reverse the effects. System Restore only effect the information from when the restore point was create to the time you use it.

That is not good. What is the information you have about that "PSP thing"? Check the Event Viewer listed in the Administrative Tools. Administrative Tools are located in the Control Panel
