I'm having a minor problem. Sometimes, the PC takes two or three attempts to boot (usually I h ave to select 'Last Known Congfig'. Occasionally, it boots ok and then just as I start to open an application, it reboots and performs a chkdsk. This has only happened since I installed a wireless network. I'm on XP Pro SP2, P4 1.8gHz processor, 480mb RAM.
I think I've tracked it down in the event viewer to the following;
The NTSVCMGR service failed to start due to the following error: The system cannot find the file specified.
I have exactly the same problem - Running sfc /scanow didn't fix the problem - A reinstall didn't fix the problem - Nothing I do can indicate what causes the problem - If you solve the proble I would love to know what you did - Thank you - Ian
