Hi,

I have windows Xp Pro, when i turn it on it gives me the message about a unexpected shutdown, it then gives me the option of safe mode or normal. Safe mode starts to list all the drivers etc then it freezes for ages and then eventually reboots, Normal mode just brings up the windows loading screen and then reboots. i cant run my recovery console as i dont know my admin password although i swear i left it blank.

Can anyone help!!!!

Cheers Rich

Did you try to boot in Last Known Configuration?

When you try booting via Safe Mode, on what file does it stop - mups.exe?

Hi MaDDPsycho.

Please start a new topic with your problem. It's very confuzing when few people use the same line.
