Hi, after recently having a lot of virus problems (that have since been cleared) I attempted simply re-installing XP and starting over, but in the midst of that the installation didn't complete, coming up with a missing file. I tried to replace it but it didn't work. Now the computer is clean, but on startup, it asks if I want to start the XP Setup (which choses itself automatically if I don't move the arrow up within 2-3 seconds) or the actual OS already installed. What I want to do is simply remove the option for continuing setup on startup. I'm not sure how to go about that, but I imagine there must be a way. If anyone can let me know I'd appreciate it. Thanks!

Try this . . Click on Start . . Run . . type msconfig . . click on the Boot Ini tab and click on Check all boot paths . . if it comes back with one is invalid, click Fix invalid boot paths

It said they were all OK, but I got rid of the entry for Setup in the boot.ini file and it's gone now. Didn't think to do that before. Thanks for steering me in the right direction. It was so simple, I wish I'd thought of it before I made the thread. Thanks again!
