I take it that is WinXP. If so, try running the system file checker

start

run

sfc /scannow

just done that and it said files that are required for windows to run properly need to be copied to the dll cache,and to insert my windows cd,but i have installed sp2 so will doing that overwrite those files?

After SP2, SFC goes to the ServicePack Folder first to find the relevant files, then your cd if the particular files are not there. (The ServicePack Folder is inside the Windows Folder).

Ok i replaced the files but it still restarts when i try to change the swap file size.
