So i'm trying to run a repair install on XP home but when it starts to delete the files basically every file comes up with 'Can't be deleted' I tryed to skip through them all but then when it got up to creating a folder it couldn't do that either at which point my only choice was to restart. Anyone know how to fix this?

Hi Sed...

This sounds like a memory problem. Download the Windows Memory Diagnostic Tool. Create either a floppy (if you have a floppy drive aboard) or the bootable CD and boot the machine with it. Let it run for a minimum of four complete passes...more is better. If you see any failures, you likely have a bad stick of RAM.
