Hello,
Recently I have been having problems with a dell inspiron 6000 laptop booting past the welcome screen. It won't. I have performed a fixboot and chkdsk through the recovery console of the xp disk. It has service pack 2 installed. It also will not continue into safe mode because it lags on mup.sys, but then continues to the welcome screen at which it freezes. Any help would be much appreciated. I am trying to avoid reformatting. Thanks.

Will doing a system restore change system files? I was under the impression that they only revert the registry. But I will try it and post the results.

Also, which program specifically did you want me to use, erunt or regreswiz?

I attempted to make the UBCD, but for some odd reason my copy of XP would not copy a specific dll file. So, I ended up reformatting the whole thing. Thanks anyways guys. Is there any specific program that you guys recommend I use to prevent any kids from getting on websites that may lead to viruses or malware? I am thinking about using NetNanny.

no suggestion ,just a comment, not just kids go to sites that get viruses ,15,000 legit websites are hacked daily and links stolen for virus/trojan use !

Yeah, as it turns out it was a dell CD. I do have xpsp2, but it is separated into two cd's. I think i will just find the iso online through torrents. Thanks guys.
