i was told i could stop sertian programs while xp was booting by goin in to msconfig and i turned off aol and some outher software that i knew what it was and when the pc restarted it came up with the windows old skin .. grey

then lots of errors and stuff so i went into the ms config and changed it back and restarted and the smae thing happened even thought i put it back to the way it was and now i cant even get online so im using my college computers to put up this post... i thought it might have deleted windows files and because its an acer laptop it has a recovery disk not a windows xp one to install the missing stuff .. can anyone help

That should have nothing to do with the start up, unlike 98 XP does not need anything in start up (though I would not recomend taking anti-virus out) so it seems strange that this should happen. But I agree with Johnny on this one restore to before it happened.
