I have an Advent laptop with WinXP. When booting it goes into a program PC Angel asking If i want to restore. I have used both options , safe rstore and restore with quick format but after a succesful restore, it then reboots and goes thro the same process again. If i quit the process, windows does start and appears to be ok, but gain on restart the pc angel kicks in. Any ideas please

PC Angel normally runs before Windows loads. I had it on one of my PC's and it was disabled when I installed Acronis True Image so I'm guessing that ATI did something to the boot sector. The Fixboot command might work click here

I've just had a thought. Using Fixboot might disable PC Angel permanently so either use something like ATI to create a disk image or don't try it if you want the option to use it in the future.
