I've been getting windows registry errors, mainly when I'm online... would this windows fix replace the corrupted registry files or should I get one of those registry cleaner programs? Sometimes the error posts as a c:\...\win\sys32\lsass.exe error status code 128 and forces the computer to shut down and restart after 60 seconds. Other times pop-ups, from registry fix software sites, tell me that I have critical errors and should get their software. I've been ignoring them because I assumed it was just advertising. But the system error that restarts the computer is obviously a real problem. I've run all virus applications and ad-ware and it comes up with no virus etc.

What you have described sounds like the sasser worm, a malware, and repairing XP is maybe not the best answer. You can visit the malware forum and post a thread there, or reinstall XP clean.

A format and reinstall would most likely work unless you have a hardware issue, BUT you'll lose ALL your data. If you have data you wish to save, you can perform an installation without formatting. It will likely cure your Windows problems, while leaving most your data intact. You will have to reinstall all your programs.

when i press enter i cannot then press R for the recovery process, the options i am given are to format the partition which i do not want to do.
I can press r at the start but it takes me to a command screen where i do not know what to do
my problem is that my computer keeps restarting over and over when it tries to start up, it shows the blue screen for a sec. also ive fixed it before going through this prcoess but i cannot remember what i did last time.
I'd appreciate your help thanks again

It did not work for me as my computer refused to budge from stating that the only option was to format the hard drive. So what we did yesterday actually was to remove the hard drive from the DELL and connect it up to a MAC and copying all the files over. The hard dirve was then replaced and formatted. Hopefully this should have fixed the problem overall and not provided a temporary measure.
