Error on Sys Res + Reload XP (perhaps!)

  Derek 12:51 13 Jul 2007

Just wondering whether I can reload Win XP Pro again since I have a problem with my System Restore.

This System Restore problem concerns an Error Box which reads...

"System Restore has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience etc".

AppName: rstrui.exe AppVer 5.1.2600.2180
Modname srrstr.dll Modver 5.1.2600.2180


As I say, I would like to reload Win XP but recently I've had to sort out a defective Soltek MB and four oldish but large hard drives.

My embarrassment is once again having to Activate Windows (I've had to do it three times this week!) and I'm sure they are starting to suspect I'm up to something !!

If I reload Win, will I have to re-activate?

Kindest regards Derek Miles.

As long as theres been no hardware changes since the last time then no, you shouldn't have to reactivate.
Can't guarantee it thats why I said shouldn't rather than won't.
