    When I try to boot up my compy, and I get to the Windows XP loading screen, it looks like it's doing stuff, but then it restarts my computer. I'm on a LiveCD right now. When I try to do Safe Mode it restarts at Mup.sys. Any ideas on why it's doing this?

    try restoring that file:
    insert xp setup cd
    press any key
    boot into recovery console by hitting r on first screen
    logon to windows installation
    type "expand D:\i386\mup.sy_ C:\windows\system32\drivers"

    Can't use recovery console. It tells me that my password is incorrect, however it is entirely correct. I'll try to reset it.

    OK, I got into the recovery console and did what you said, but it had no effect. Anything else I can do?


    BTW, I'm using a WinXP Pro CD with a Home edition compy. Is that okay?

    It doesn't help at all. Now, when starting Safe Mode, it stops at uagp35.sys. Is there any way I can "refresh" windows, so to speak, replace all of it's files but not any of my data?
