The Win Update is NOT causing this problem. It is also happening when I power down and boot up normally. Each time it crahes part way through the boot and the ONLY way I can get it back is to F8 Last Known...
I can boot into safe mode but Restore is no use because at the end it automatically reboots and the problem is STILL THERE.
I've tried all the usual checks:
Hard Drive, Defrag, Virus, Spy ware, Reg clean, Reg defrag, Boot without start up items etc
goto RUN and enter chkdsk /f , this will check your hard drive for Errors Then goto run and enter SFC /scannow , this will check all your system files and correct any errors. You may need you XP Cd . Terry
