its back again ffs. It all started when I uninstalled my graphics card drivers (nVidia 84.21).

its getting so anoying now. It happens every boot. I dont get it when booting into safe mode. Once when I got it it gave me a patch from MS
http://oca.microsoft...51361b&SID=1501
this didnt help as after the reboot it happened again.

I think the only way is to reformat the HD.

Yep, probably the best thing to do, I'll just have to move the error in the bottom of the screen until I can get around to formatting.

I did a few TOTLY clean installs of my g/c driver (about 3 times booting into safe mode and using driver cleaner) Installing then repeating and I haven't had the error since. Though I have only rebooted about 4 times since the driver install. It may have worked, but we thought that a while ago.

thnx for the help though.

Hi guys- I registered just to reply to this thread. I was having the exact same problem as the OP in the exact same module. I just wanted to let you know that the firewall fix worked for me. I had the firewall problem once before and had fixed it; and because the firewall settings displayed correctly in safe mode under the main admin account- I assumed they would display properly in the main user account with which I was having problems. When I logged in to get the services and controllers app error message; I decided to check the firewall settings and I got the error message that the settings could not be accessed.


So I tried the firewall fix in this thread and applied them in safe mode- the problem persisted. I logged into the account on which I was having problems; ignored the services and controller error message- and did the firewall fix.


The next reboot was fine; and this was happening to me after every boot. If the problem comes back I will let you guys know. But I was just wondering if you tried to apply the fix out of safe mode on the account you were having problems with. Because I had another account I made while experiencing this problem; and that account still has the problem while the main one that got the fix doesn't.


*sigh* Update:

Getting the same error again in the same module; and the firewall settings are fine- so this time something else must be causing the problem- and it's either some malware that a miriad of scans cannot find, or it's windows XP evil itself.

Ok another update- I recently did a system restore (because for some reason I kept getting stop errors when trying to do a reinstall of windows even after chkdsk /f and many virus scans) I restored to a point before I updated to catalyst 6.4 drivers.


I installed the drivers for my x800 pro and the catalyst something or other drivers that came with it; and the error persisted. But when I restored to that same point again; and installed the drivers only with no catalyst control center or any of that- the computer works normally again.


*shrugs*


Go figure. My windows is still really screwed up I bet; but at least it's functioning normally now.
