    Morning all,

    Just a query. A friend of mine has had problems with multiple restarts on his XP PC. He tried to email me the HJT, but entered the wrong address, and so printed it off and gave it to me last night. Hence I'm not going to type it all out. :)

    Enough of the rambling. :) There is one entry that looks so obviously the cause, but I could find nothing specific when searching...

    F1 - win.ini: load=load=load=

    Any ideas? Apart from a couple of bits and pieces, his log is pretty clean otherwise.

    Cheers

    Liam

    Is this an XP installation Liam?
    Strange ini file value but probably a leftover from something no longer around

    In some cases it can be caused by faulty ram. This utility will test it for him.......Let it run through a set of seven tests a couple of times.... Any errors are indications of problems. You should have all passes.

    To test the disk for corruption, run chkdsk from the properties page (tools) of the local drive in My Computer

    Rule out software conflicts by using the "clean boot" options of msconfig:

    note: do not uncheck the "load services" box or all system restore points will be deleted.

    Cheers for the info Steve, yes it is XP.

    And sorry for the delay in getting back to you, but I've just dl'd a new browser to try out (Avant) and, being sad.. :) I'm like a kid in a sweetshop. :D:D

    I'll see him later and pass that on, along with the rest of the HJT clean up, and hopefully that'll sort it out. I'll let you know how it goes.

    Cheers

    Liam
