this happened after installing a Logitech driver and the restore features haven't done anything to help me out. It seems to be limited to something the computer loads on a normal startup because it will hang or have problems after about 5 min. but there will be no problems at all in 'safe mode'.
I would like to know if there is a way to fix the c:\winnt\system32\config\system file short of a reinstall.
Also, is the information in the system file very unique or a generic type of file that can be obtained from another system that is working properly?
I'm thinking it's probably unique. Anyway, I do have another install on the same partition that is working fine because it's using a different system file in that path. I could copy over the vital information to the WinNT2 folder and then customize the new installation, but I would rather see if there is a way to fix the old one without throwing it away.
