When I turn on my computer or reboot the processor name comes up and then I have to hit the F8 button to get windows to load. What is going on. I restored it to an earlier date before this started and it rebooted one time with no trouble and then it started again. Help

On what screen is this system halting or pausing, requiring you to hit f8?

You may just be seeing the default 30 second delay.

To change this, run msconfig and click on the "boot.ini" tab.

If the "time out" value is set for 30 seconds, try lowering it, say to 5 seconds.
