Everytime i restart windows XP it crashes....wondering what it could be ? LIke when it goes to the Windows XP logo thingy it restarts automatically most people say virus according to ogle, but i did virus scan successfully the day before with no issues. Any advice and if i need to reformat do you know anyway to save some of the files.... any tricks and tools??? and is there a faster way of reformatting a 200GB partition easily?

Can you boot into safe mode and pick a repair point?

If not then I would just do a repair install so you don't lose your files.

It might be a failing power supply, it never is able to boot into windows,but it takes you into the boot screen.

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(

Just did some crude math and I apparently joined almost 18yrs ago, how is that possible???
