    ok fans now it wont even start. i dont know if it dont have enough memory or what but when i turn it on it acts like i shut it off without shutting it down. no matter what i choose (safe mode...) it get halfway to opening then restarts. i chose it to start on last good config and nothin. i dont know if yall can help me on this one but i got faith in yall. somehow this seems worse than my other problems. PLEASE HELP...AGAIN


    just to recap. i had a problem where my windows couldnt find any of my programs when i tried to open them.mobo and tidus helped me fix this. afterward i installed a personal firewall and tried to fix the 010 problem on my hijack with LSPfix.didnt work. soon after that,my comp was low on memory. it chewed up 2gigs in less than 5 minutes.it also chewed up memory faster than i could erase stuff. couldnt do a restore because of low memory. hope yall can help.

    heres something interesting i saw before the boot problem.some of my files in windows are opening with other programs. this is most likely due to me opening files with other progrms so i could run them. how do i get these files back to running on whatever was running them in the first place

    some things i was thinkin bout were booting from xp upgrade disc but i dont know what to do when i get inside. i have the service pack2 upgrade disc. does that have al the same stuff on it or just the service pack 2 upgrde. i also have the xp upgrade $100 . if anybody has been through this before please help
