I just reinstalled XP home and have in the last 3 days had to recover user
the recovery console because Windows couldn't start (File missing or corrupt
Windows\System32\Config). I have reinstalled on a new hard drive due to
problems experienced in the past so I am confident that the drive is OK, in
fact I am fairly confident that all the hardware is OK as I never had a
single problem with Windows ME installed. My latest XP instal seems to
shutdown very very fast; could this be too fast and causing some corruption?

Any ideas would be much appreciated.

Thanks,

Andy

Thanks for pointing out the MS KB article however my original posts ststaes
that I have recovered my installation; I know want to know if a fast
shutdown could be causing problems.

Thanks,

Andy
