    Hello all.

    this is the problem.

    I get a message that "windows has recovered for an error" every time windows finishes loading.
    now what do I have to do??
    and can I reinstall XP over the top to correct any errors or format??

    if you installed without a fresh install, i would recommend it. Format your boot HD and get rid of any conflicting things that may be lurking on your HD

    It was a fresh install, it had been working fine up until a few days ago, the only new thing I installed were nvidia drivers for geforce2, which I uninstalled before putting back my matrox.

    the files for windows update where can I find them?? cause i want to put them onto cd before i format....

    have you installed any software since getting this error...I got the same thing after installing laplink gold...just booted to safe mode and uninstalled or what about doing a restore from a point that you know is good...formatting seems alittle drastic I would screw with it for awhile also see if you updated any drivers...most likely though new software conflicting
