Last night I restarted Windows (XP PRO), and it hung on the reboot
before getting to the Win logo. I rebooted again and again and it
never progressed to Windows. Nothing had been troubling before this.
I tried booting from the Windows CD, but got the following error:

Inf file txtsetup.sif is corrupt or missing, status 32768. Setup
cannot continue. Press any key to exit.

Any suggestions would be most appreciated!

Is your XP install CD a Retail disk or an OEM version. The
Setup Information File (.Sif) is a standard module. Check the
disk for fingerprints or other types of smudges. If necessary
you can download the Floppy startup disk set to get to the
Repair install or Recovery console using your CD-ROM.

Check hardware generally - as well as overnight RAM testing loops,
check HD for physical errors, exclude overclocking, eyeball for bad
motherboard capacitors, etc.

Then, formally exclude malware.

I checked most of the hardware (CD-ROMs, disk drives, etc) and no
problems. Could you please let me know (or provide links to) how to
check RAM with overnight testing loops and HD for physical defects?
Thanks!!!
