Hi,

I have one problem with my Windows XP. Recently my Windows keeps on going to the Advanced Option Menu Screen Upon starting up.

There's no problem with shutting down so could anyone advise on the problem and how to solve it?

THANKS A LOT!

I think you are probably having an issue, but it is happening too quickly for you to see...perhaps, just before shutdown, an error is occuring,


Right click MY COMPUTER, choose PROPERTIES, choose ADVANCED, choose the SETTINGS button in the Startup And RECOVERY section, and uncheck AUTOMATICALLY RESTART

See if that results in a blue screen

Double click MY COMPUTER, choose TOOLS > FOLDER OPTIONS > VIEW

Scroll down and CHECK SHOW HIDDEN FILES AND FOLDERS

UUNCHECK HIDE EXTENSIONS FOR KNOWN FILE TYPES and HIDE PROTECTED SYSTEM OPERATING SYSTEM RILES (RECOMMENDED)

Now go to your c:\ drive in MY COMPUTER and COPY (right click, copy, paste to your desktop) copies of your c:\boot.ini file and c:\msdos.sys file to your next post

zip them up and attach them to your next post
