    My laptop is running on XP SP2. I can't seem to get it to restart, or shut down or system restore.

    I've ran a handful of programs and nothing has turned up.
    It can't even system restore in safemode.

    i get this message before the log-in screen:
    Parser Message:
    Value Creation failed " at line 8

    what else can i do? :(

    was your computer was infected by virus before you were getting this error msg
    if yes
    do a online virus scan
    log into this website ie ewido.net and do a online virus scan
    if no
    open system configuration utility
    start-run-type msconfig
    you get system configuration window
