We used the Puppy Linux method of looking at the hard drive that I learned from Gringo_PR on these forums, and my son could look at the config folder. When u try system restore- it comes up "cannot lock volume, its being used by another process". On the HP you hold the power button in for 2 minutes to drain residual power from the board. Now I only wonder why the problem didn't arise the first time I installed XP? Check This Out

Seems to me that, unlike many cases on this forum, the only hardware problem that could occur would be on the WD HDD, but scan disk returns nothing. Problem solved! and you won't have misterious problems like this again. IT ALMOST ALWAYS IS.

I have very few programs that MUST be open to untrusted zones- my Browser, Email, the freeware security programs, and a file sharer. Combined they aurguably provide MORE security than MS Security Upgrades.
