Default XP Hates Windows

Hello everyone,

Ok, so now my XP system is royally screwed up. It seems like XP just swats every window that pops up. The auto-run screens? Whap, they get knocked out. I tried running ipconfig.exe and it was just knocked back into non-existence. I don't have any popup blockers. What is going on and how do I fix it?

format will usually sort out this kinda problem... :P

Don't format instantly if you dont have all useful data backed up.

But... If you cant get into any settings windows it doesnt seem likely you can fix it... maybe just a fresh OS install would help.

let me know

Yeah; just format it and reinstall. Always does the job.

a format will no doubt, fix any software problem, but try everything else first. I think that should always be a last resort, especially since you only install xp three times from one disk.
