XP - Boot twice?

  dms05 07:54 25 Feb 2006

My XP Home has sudenly started to act oddly on initial boot. It all seems to load OK but I can't access any of my applications. If I then reboot all performs perfectly normally. I have XP Password protected so I know I'm logging onto the correct User account. Anyone any idea what's happening?

My computer was turned off using Start/Turn-Off by another user (who was logged on as my User Name) but he did so without closing any of the applications that were running at the time.

Repair XP by replacing corrupt files

sfc /scannow

in the run box, press enter and let system file checker find and replace missing / corrupt file in windows and explorer.This will take awhile to complete and you may be asked for the CD to be in the drive if windows is not preinstalled on the hard drive.

Many thanks. I didn't associate the problem with this solution. It's all sorted now. Thanks Fruit Bat.
