After using the Norton removal Tool, successfully it seemed, I have installed Norton System Works 2006 and Norton Firewall 2006, during installation I got a message saying an earlier version of GoBack needed to be removed did I want to do this, I clicked yes and continued to install the new software which includes a newer version of GoBack, but that did not get installed. I decided to use system restore and start again and found that system restore will not work on any restore point going back for over a month. On my last attempt XP has gone into a loop, I get the "choice" screen, Safe Mode, last good configeration, start normally etc; no matter which one I select it very briefly flashes the Windows is starting up screen and then it goes back to the choice screen.
I have a backup with Drive Image 7 but I cannot get it to work and even if I can I have installed a network router since then, will restoring this back up work or make things worse?
Can I boot, or do a repair, from the Windows XP CD?
You must have pressed R for the Recovery Console instead of Enter to Set Up Windows. If you look again at my 'click here' if you click on the small pictures they will expand and you can see what to do on each screen.
