XP2 My experience

I installed XP2 and when I rebooted I received the following message.

Windows could not find biosinfo.inf C:\windows\inf\biosinfo.inf

I was then prompted to use the Recovery console to repair. As I have never used the Recovery Console, I finally searched on the XP CD for this file and copied it to the proper location. I then rebooted and all is well. I almost forgot how to use the DOS commands....

Has anybody else had this problem? I haven't installed SP2 yet, because I am going to be doing a reformat..Just want to make sure this is just a weird time.

I was missing my "Autoexec.nt" file from the system32 folder. There was a backup copy in the "C:\windows\Repair" folder.

Unrealtournament wouldn't load, but then I checked the properties on the firewall to allow port 7777 and it cleared the problem.

All-in-all I have been running firewall only and have yet to get a single spyware, adware, trojan infection, i.e. winKA, bridgeX.dll, lyco's, GAin, etc.

I used to run ad-watch, freesurfer, and Popupdummy all at the same time and would still get some form of infection, although much less then if I were not to run them.

I am very impressed with M$'s new SP2 and perhaps for the first time in there history they have actually delivered IMHO :)

Did you have Norton Anti-Virus, Style XP, Daemon Tools, Alcohol 120% installed on your system when you updated to SP2? Having one or any of these on your system when updating to SP2 could cause this error.

Alcohol 120 created an error on my computer but uninstalling and reinstalling cleared that up...was getting an error with office xp but I did the same thing and the error was gone
