well there is one way that you can do it so you do not have to absolutely wipe your drive. Go Start>Programs>Accesories>System Tools>System Restore and then restore it to an earlier point when you had no probs. simple.

are you low on hard disk space, or low on virtual memory?


Thread moved to General Hardware / software... you'll have more luck getting answers in there.

Ok if the system restore did not work for you, then pop in the windows CD, reset the computer..when the menu comes up..choose the restore option from the menu...that's it. the instalation will automatically format the hhd.

Well, be sure to delete the partition, and from there make a new one, and reinstall the OS.
