    OK so My Comp is just going crazy.

    So lately my computer has been acting funny. at one point in time we could not right click. The computer would freeze, now we are'nt having that problem that much. But the issue now is when I restart all I see is the desktop backround and it stays that way for over 10 minutes

    So i did a little probing to find out what it is. Well try too.....

    So when I ctrl alt delete and close explorer.exe and then relaunch it. The backround comes up and the Icons and everything loads. I use wireless and the windows zero config wont load so I dont get wireless connection.

    So I look at the process nothing too much out the ordinary. there is one thing called aestarwindsv.exe ( or something like that , Ill get the exact name at home). checked services and it says its for buffer underrun burn on drives, but Ive NEVER seen it before.

    So I try and safe boot. Atlast It boots just fine.

    So I try system restore and computer booted up just fine. For a few days, not the problem is back.

    Try all the same except restore and same things going on.

    Try safe boot and it boots just fine. So I have it boot normally, stop explorer.exe and relaunch and go to msconfig.

    Try to change some services that start on startup, it tells me it cant do it, I need to be a admin or log into a admin account. Im a admin on the comp, So I try and do a diagnostic startup.

    The computer starts, but when it starts it tells me I need to reactivate windows because of a Major Hardware change. Which I DIDNT CHANGE ANY HARDWARE.... UGHHH WINDOWS.... soooooo

    Now in diagnostic mode I get a error for Mcafee saying it couldnt start a service. SOOOO, I unstill Mcafee. Error is gone, and the computer starts up now, But the computer Keeps restarting on boot up because of some major system failure. My wife got it to Stop doing that. It seems it had something to do With Roxio software, then she had to go disable auto restart when there is a system failure.

    Then on start up it says there is a visual runtime library error. which seems to be with something about Office , But I dont have office.

    So to sum it up....
    This morning the computer had
    * Program: ... ommen files\RoxioShared\9.0\shared\com\roxiowatchtray9.exe error (i disabled all of the roxio startup in msconfig)
    * getting a visual runtime library error
    * The computer wasnt starting and explorer is acting slow.
    * has been rebooting on its own when trying to shut down (i disabled the restart when system has a fatal error and it is no longer rebooting)
    * also will not shut down using desktop i have to manually shut down
    * windows zero config wont load

    When I get home. I will update with what I see and with what is going on at that time. Ill post a update.

    Anyone got any ideas???

    Also got over 300 gigs of data I would like not to loose.

    Welcome to TSG....

    Yes I think I may be able to. Doing all of the reading in the first post I am convinced that something is taking way too long to load and will not let the computer do muchuntil it loads and then I seen it Roxio 9. I had an extreme amount of difficulty with this Roxio version 9.0 and so much that I went back to Roxio verison 8.0 to get away from it and still have a problem somewhat but not bad enough to do much about it since I still have an installer screen that pops up and it is for Roxio 7.0.

    I would suggest removing Roxio 9.0 from your system and go back to version 8.0 and when you do after it is supposedly removed reboot the computer atleast 4 times before installing Roxio 8.0.

    I never had problems with Roxio software until after Sonic bought them. Personally I think Sonic leaves a lot to be desired.

    That has been uninstalled for a long time, I dont know why that is still showing up. Ill try looking into it more. I did have problems with Roxio 9 when I had it.

    I still dont know why, the activation thing is still coming up. I havent changed anything in like 6 or 8 months, which was my MOBO. But at that time I had to redo the activation with Microsoft.

    I am going crazy. My toolbar along the bottom is the old classic style and it wont let me change it back to the XP blue.

    My windows firewall the windows firewall/internet connection sharing (ICS) wont turn on. So the firewall is not starting.

    Windows zero config is still not starting and allowing me to connect to my Wireless network.

    when I go into MSCONFIG>services it shows all that the things in there for Microsoft services disabled and it wont let me start anything.

    I can take screen shots of everything , burn them to disk and then upload them from my Apple.

    Atlease I have a computer online.

    Now all hell is breaking loose....

    I tried to run a repair from the XP cd and after the First restart I get a blue screen with " PROCESS1_INITIALIZATION_FAILED"

    So I do a google search and come up with this

    STOP: 0x0000006B (0x0000003A, 0x00000002, 0x00000000, 0x00000000) PROCESS1_INITIALIZATION_FAILED
    When you try to repair your Windows XP installation or when your computer first restarts after you upgrade to Windows XP. This issue may occur if the Roxio GoBack program is installed in your computer.
    (The GoBack program is also included with the Norton SystemWorks program)
    To resolve this issue, cancel Windows XP Setup, remove GoBack, and then restart
    Windows XP Setup.

    But I cant even boot into safe mode of with last good configuration

    GRRRRRRRRRRR this is really pissin me off.

    one thing I noticed is when i try to start in safe mode it stops on the giveio.sys on the boot process.

    Could that be causing the problem?

    I can boot to the recovery console from the XP cd
