I tried a Recovery Disk, for XP Pro, and it also gives the error message
This all started on a Dell Inspiron 1501, when I re-formated from Vista to XP Pro
============================================================
Reset the default security provider in Windows XP
To reset the default security provider in Windows XP, delete the relevant registry keys from the registry. To do this, follow these steps:
Start the computer. Press the F8 key during startup to start the computer in safe mode.
Click Start, click Run, type regedit, and then click OK.
Delete the following registry subkeys from the registry:
HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Software\Microsoft\Cryptography\Providers
HKEY_USERS\S-1-5-20\Software\Microsoft\Cryptography\Providers
Exit Registry Editor.
Restart the computer.
Reset the drive letter of the system drive
Use Registry Editor to change the drive letter of the system drive back to its original value. Edit the following registry key to change the value of the system drive:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\MountedDevices
===============================================================
I have looked at the two HKEY_USERS and no Cryptography folder.
In the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\MountedDevices
I have:
Default (no value set)

Hiya JeromeM.

Maybe it`s the blonde in me but I`m not sure what`s happened here ...

"I tried a Recovery Disk, for XP Pro, and it also gives the error message. This all started on a Dell Inspiron 1501, when I re-formated from Vista to XP Pro"

So have you got a freshly installed version of XP Pro on your computer and if you have, why do you need to use a recovery disk ? If you need to fix or repair something in the system, use the disk you used to install the system in the first place as different versions of XP Pro aren`t necessarily compatible for repairing.


Maybe a little more info would highlight your problem a bit better.

Sorry for the late response. My problem was a bad XP SP2 formating disk. It dropped some programs, when I tried a newer disk, everything loaded fine.

Thanks for the offer to help though.
And I do believe blondes have more fun.
