why don't you try installing SP1? Don't bother with SP2 yet, still too many
compatibility problems and other issues.

Your post has zero value. This is an FAQ. May I suggest you do as Randy
suggested and search Google Groups for a solution?

LOL I suggested google groups. You seem to have a comprehension problem. To
get back on-topic, No, I was unable to find a solution to this "FAQ" using
google, hence resorted to posting to the NG expecting some knowledgeable,
helpful person to come along. I can wait. Thanks :-)

it immediately says saving settings, blah and then signs off , and
eventually then shuts down:-(

Try booting into Safe Mode and see if it kicks you out again.

it might be a virus there are a few going around that do that a d or p
netsky will also do that in fact

only suggest put in xp or 98 startup disk tye surching for the registry
files with reg???.*

Then try to manualy delet the reg files. Re-start the xp it should in
theory bypass the startup screen. saying you have you registry present.

Goto command prompt

a dos prompt type scanreg see if it help to get it back up and running.

If it does do to your anti-virus providers site and get the update they
are going wacko right now.

give it a shoot if not you may have to re-install it from scratch with a
startup disk fdisk re-do it last resort try the top one tell me after if
it works.

For me, and many others I've spoken to, there are zero "compatibility
problems and other issues". I would venture to suggest the problems lie
within your own system or are PEBCAK errors.

I actually said "I think it's a PEBCAK kind of problem" to a user once.
They did not get it, and I pray they never google (or learn to spell)
PEBCAK.
