    This just started happening - I have kids that download "everything" so some vermin may have crawled into the system... Mcafee is there watching but you never know

    Upon boot this error message window comes up:
    System error &H8007065B5 (-2147023179)
    The interface is unknown

    Then a few seconds later it is followed by 2 of the following error windows:
    HP AiO Device Object Server
    RegisterClassObjects failed. hRes=0x80076B5
    Interface unknown
    Max Retry attempts exceeded.

    The system comes up 1/2 way.
    Things that work:
    opening some applications word / excel
    Things that don't work
    no startup bar
    no printer
    no internet connection (wireless cable access)

    Another note:
    I have tried the restore rebuild of Windows XP - tries it twice. Both times when the system booted during the install I was able to use the system, including the internet. BUT, the screen resolustion was 8bit low res 800x600 with no wayt to change it.
    Upon a reboot the system reverts to the error messages mentioned above.

    Frustrated smurf-daddy

    Help if you can.
