All very nice but he wants his system to run. Start with the repair of the OS using the standard protocol. You can tweak it later. The kernal probably isn't running in memory because the Hive stack in xp is corrupted...a missing or corupted .dll file. I heard so many people ***** about MS repair....it has always worked fine for me and all my client's. Just try that first. It's a no-brainer. If that repair is unsuccessful, other aproaches will be needed. Sheesh!!!!
