    Sometimes when I download a new app off of the net then restart my computer it gets as far as the windows me screen and goes no further. I have to use restore and revert my hard drive. This is only an occasional thing.
    I thought about reformatting my hard drive and went to download ms back-up from the me CD. It loaded fine but when I went to restart the computer got as far as the me screen and then completely shut down. It will occasionally start in safe mode.
    Any ideas?

    Hiya and welcome

    Well, not knowing if Windows Me has this, we'll try the long route.

    Programs | Accessories | System Tools | System Information

    On the left choose Software Enviroment, then Startup Programs. Copy/paste the list. If you can't copy, then Save to Txt file, highlight all and post here.
