There is one fix to this problem to my knowledge.... its nothing but the Software registry hive had gone bad....

You will have to boot the system from the recovery console disk and first rename the \SystemRoot\System32\Config\Software and then copy it from the repair folder back to its location.. If this does not work consider loading windows again

What do you mean by "boot the system from the recovery console disk and first rename the \SystemRoot\System32\Config\Software and then copy it from the repair folder back to its location"

Should i just do a system restore?

I think I'd try the System Restore Option first Dude, or a Repair.

i have a similar problem.

So I reboot to the XP cd, press R, it takes me to a black screen with white type asking me "Which windows installation would you like to log onto.

All I see is this, 1: C:\WINDOWS

So, what do I do now?

If I type "1", I get this, "C:\WINDOWS"

I am so lost, what do I do next. Please walk me through this like I am an idiot.
