Unable to restart XP pro it has a screen saying -- Shut down while program still running, it offers choice of returning to last working state or safe mode But unable to acheive any of these ..... any help please
"Shut down while program still running"..is that exactly what the error message says?. What prog is running?Chris
hi chris thats it and as for program don't know due to the fact that kids where on thinking of just reinstalling
insert xp disc and boot from the cd you can then repair the installation and it will be ok
Before you consider a repair installation (as this takes an age and wipes out all your updates and hot fixes) try this >>Turn on the computer, and press the 'f8' key to get to the XP boot menu.Choose "Safe mode with command prompt".The system will ask you to choose the OS. It will say Windows XP Professional Press 'enter'.At the command prompt, type the following EXACTLY as I have it written here:%systemroot%\system32\restore\rstrui.exePress 'enter'.The system restore console will appear.You will only have the choice to return to an early configuration. Perform the system restore to a time before the kids touched it.Chris
OK Chris Will give this a try thanks for your help
If I was you I would set XP so that the kids are only "Limited user" instead of "system Administrator" That way only you will be able to install programs
