geekthatswims,

Welcome to HTG.

Try this:

Boot into safe mode by using key F8.

Choose Last Known Good Configuration Boot Selection.

What happens ??

Do you have a COMPLETE copy of XP Pro or XP Home CD ??

This is posted in XP Section of Forum so assume you are running XP.

geekthatswims,

I don't completely understand what you are saying.

You seem to being saying what I said to do in my previous post.

What is the Make and Model of your computer ??

Regards,
Rick P.

Geekthatswims, hello. I would advise you to back up your important files first, just in case none of these recovery procedures work.

After your data is safe, go back to Safe Mode and boot into a Safe Mode Windows. Try doing the system restore from there. Here is a MS KB article about how to run system restore from a Safe Mode command prompt in case you have problems using the Safe Mode windowed interface.
