I tried using Easycleaner to clean up registries on my second computer. It also had a double entries clean up which I performed but when I restarted I got a message saying that <windows root> system 32\ntoskrnl.exe was missing or corrupt. I tried to install the XP cd but nothing happens. I can't type anything on the screen to tell the computer to reboot from cd. It always goes back to the same message. The computer is a Dell DImension 4400. What should I do? Thank you in advance for your help!

sorry but my internet wasnt working till today but here i am.


Anyway when you first boot the computer on the first screen press F1 that will take you to the BIOS, using the arrow keys move to the "boot" tab. use the down keys to select boot sequence and put the CD-Rom first, floppy second(if you have one) and HD third. see if that works

Good question. Not knowing much about coumputers, when I installed XP it said that I would lose everything on my windows folder so I created a new windows folder. Now that the computer is running, can I erase one of the folders or should I leave it like it is?
