    I recently installed software for my mp3 player/cell phone. after i installed the sofware it immediatly froze. After that i restarted and it didnt get past the xp boot screen, so i went into safe mode and it booted then immedialtley restarted. The sofware version i installed was for 2000 and nt operating systems. it didnt have an xp. should i have installed the version for 98?

    Del suggestion is good, but what MP3 player was it?

    Try using Windows XP's Compatibility mode, which allows XP to emulate older versions of Windows. Use Windows Help for details, but ask us if you need further assistance.

    btw: I like WinAmp, which works great with XP.

    I don't think it's the mp3 player as much as the cell thing that is causing the problem, but never know til it's fixed.

    Del,

    I was not really sure how it related to XP, thanks.

    btw: Ottawa is a very pretty city. Do they still allow ice staking on the canal? I use to support Simware's SimPC and A2B at my company for 12 years, until Simware was bought up by another company. I came to your fair city for a user conference and I was a guess speaker. Those were the days.
