Evertime I update xp pro (licenced copy) and try to reboot , my computer will sometimes reboot ok or more likely than not will start with the 'restart normally', 'restart from last know good configeration' screen. I've reinstalled xp 3 times and the problem persists. At the moment I'm running xp perfectly with no updates. Can anyone plz help? Tony

If that doesn't find anything try a repair of XP before doing another update

Repair XP by replacing corrupt files
Type

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.
