    I tried to install a cam driver and like a fool after restart nothing came up so I manually restarted my computer again. I received a screen reading windows did not shutdown properly, BLAH BLAH BLAH. Well I selected normal startup. When my computer started it was being difficult, to say the least. Every time I restarted my computer I would get that same screen reading windows did not shut down properly please choose a startup option. So I restored my system to a previous state, hoping that might do something. When my computer restarted, once again I received the screen reading Windows did not shutdown properly please choose a startup option.

    I know I did something wrong, I am willing to take responsibility for that. My question is, is there any way that I can fix this problem without having the reinstall windows. A simple 1, 2, 3, instruction would be nice, like you were speaking to a novice computer person.


    I am running Window XP home edition

    Boot into safe mode and uninstall the drivers.

    I booted into safe mode and restored my system to a previous state. Now everything is working alright, but I'm still having the startup problem

    Forgot to add the driver is already uninstalled. I managed to do that.

    If I need to go into the registry, I am willing to do so. What is the worst that can happen I have to reinstall everything... Been there, done that.

    I know how to make a backup and how to delete items in the registry. I would appreciate any help that you may have.

    Thank you very much
