I don't believe that registry cleaning will correct anything. I have never succeeded in doing so and I tried it a lot of time. At best I used it as one of a number of processes to improve the performance of a computer. It never corrected any corruption, missing files or other common software problem.

The more we follow this thread the more I think we have a software problem. The fact that Sandra didn't find anything wrong with the hardware strengthen this feeling. I still do not exclude a hardware problem but I think that we investsed considerable efforts in this direction with no results.

Had the computer been with me I would have formatted it. As a matter of policy G2G do not recommend reformatting. Accepting this policy I suggest other correcting steps short of clear format.

Normally I would agree with this, and I would have reformatted a long time ago. However, when I moved from Japan, certain discs were lost, and the software that they contained is something I need, so I really don't want to reformat just yet. And even though I have my Windows disc, I am not sure if I go through the trouble of a reinstall, if I shouldn't update to Vista or continue with XP. I am waiting to see how stable Vista is and how quickly the errors they have with it are repaired. So far I haven't been impressed by it.

I will try the Windows repair that you suggested while I think about these other options.
