I nearly always get a Fatal Error on Startup of XP. I have loaded several XP updates, should I uninstall these and start again? If so which updates should I install as they are are all very similiar! Yours help please
Something along the lines of ' Windows has recovered froma serious error' then it says to asks if you want to send a report to Microsoft.If I send then it says I need to load updates of several megs in size which I have done but it still happens. I hope this helps!
sounds like the same thing i came across when i built a pc for a friend, when you re-install xp you need to go to windows updates and install 4 or five updates at a time, what is happening is that the blaster virus is causing a protection fault on your system and the only way to get rid of it is to have all the latest updates from windows update site, you must format your hard drive and install fresh otherwise you will get the same problem when trying to update, the blaster worm will intermitently try and shut down your pc and only give you a certain amount of time before it reboots your pc.
try a clean boot click here or try and start in safe mode(keep taping F8 or F5 as soon as the computer is switched on and select it from the list)
if you can sucessfully boot into wndows without errors in either of the above then it may be just software causing the problem.
note:systemworks/norton products in general can give some strange errors on some set ups.in general they are very good products but i have had a few problems in the past using nav and npf with my set up.
if safe mode or clean booting sucessfully work i would guess that its maybe symantec software at fault.
try uninstalling systemworks first to see if it helps or try to find a fix on the symantec kb site click here type errors etc into the search box to get something like click here lots of usefull info.
