I think I may have to delete XP ,reformat and reinstall. When I try to do #
1 I have a problem. I get to the delete files and a box comes up called
RUNDLL, it says an exception accured, c:\windows\system 32\ shell32.dll\
control_rundll. I then went to System Tools, Disk cleanup. When I try
to run disk cleanup, I get a flag saying disk cleanup manager has a problem,
and to tell microsoft about the problem.
I think at this point I may have toformat and start again. I have did this
before. Thanks for all the info you sent.
