You can use this guide to repair XP
Possibly, you will need to press the start button and keep tapping the delete key, (possibly F2) until the PC enters set up. Change the boot order to CD ROM Drive then hard drive, press F10 then press enter, load the XP CD then type Y then press enter, as it reboots, look for press any key to load from CD, press enter
You will need the XP product key to complete this
If you have audio / video files which are subject to DRM you should check with the provider for known issues with performing an XP repair install
XP Repair Install
Windows XP repair feature won't delete your data, installed programs, personal information, or settings. It just repairs the operating system
After running XP Repair you will need to install all Windows Updates

Posted 24 August 2006 - 04:46 PM
Press OK or enter
Click file, click export, check the dot is in all for export range, name the file and save in a safe place
Then make the changes and reboot

Due to the importance of the registry file i am reluctant to delete any data without knowledgable/expert advice. Please could you possibly have a look at the registry download & advice what i need to delate.
Thanks once more for your help.

Anyway i have managed to delete all the entries in the Registry Editor but still getting the System 32 Folder on startup. Following the instructions on MS website i left the default systems enty (ie System Tray). This wasn't even available so i had to create an entry for that myself.
Attached are the entries left in the 2 Registry keys. I have been unable to delete these. Any time i do, when i log back on they still exist.
Can someone please help.....this is soooooo frustrating.
