Can anyone tell me the best way to save my data files before a reinstall of xp,every time xp starts there's an error msg "nt write center need to close".

my restore disc will only let me do a full intall with format.

any ideas?

Welcome pepper. :) If you have partitions you can save your downloads, documents, etc to there. Have you got a burner? How long has the error been occuring?

Seeing as it is only a month why not try doing a system restore? It might correct the problem. Still backup the stuff you want to keep though......for safe keeping.

Do you have any clue what this "nt write center" refers to? Maybe it is one of your startup applications that crashes. Go to Start - Run type: msconfig and look under startup if you can find something.

Instant Write seems to be a packet writing software similar to InCd or DirectCd, which allows you to use a rewritable cd like a big floppy. Obviously Instant Write doesn't manage multi-user environments. Guess you'll have the choice to either uninstall it or stick with one user account. To uninstall such kind of software it might be necessary to stop its process in taskmanager first.

ntuser.dat and ntuser.dat.LOG are the physical files that represent the CurrentUser hive of the registry. I really would not try to copy them back after a reinstall.
