I am having all sorts of issues, the latest is that my machine gets to the windows 2000 screen bootup and then reboots, I have got into Windows in Safe Mode but now need advice on how to figure out whats wrong! Where on earth do I start, I am currently running an AVG and a Kaspersky full system scan, I have Hijack-This and have a report, and I also run (normally though not in safe mode) Lavasoft Ad-Aware, I occasionally run Spybot and normally do not find much in the way of issues. I had to reload W2K recently as a SP4 + update failed and sent windows into a dive. I think my issues lie there, as I'm in safe mode I can get to my files, should I try and find the issue, or backup and Format the disk and go for a complete re-install, all this a few days before I get another hard drive to ghost to....
Any help will be most gratefully received, and boy am I glad I have a work PC!
OK So I have un-installed and re-installed the video card, which by the way hasn't caused me issues before, not this card at least, I then un-installed the sound card completely and tried to boot without the card installed and no go. SO I went back into Safe and re-installed the sound card, and still no go. What other drivers should I try? I did notice an issue with Itunes which seemed to fail and won't run. Cannot un-install Itunes in Safe mode!
I would also get rid of ITunes you will have to reinstall the system that means if you have a W98 or WME FLOPPY use FDISK and delete the none DOS partition then reinstall W2000 I KNOW BIG UPDATES to download if you haven't put them to CD ROM,i have run windows 2000 for some time and i have never managed to repair it.
