I have a new data to add, when i reinstall it, it worked and fixed it, but, when i update my computer with windows update, it says i need to download windows installer 3.1, so it downloads from windows update but doesn't install, i manually download it from microsoft.com and install it, and it says for me to reboot, so i reboot and when it comes to my desktop, a balloon pops up from the taskbar and says that i have 55 updates to install, so i install them and aound 35 of them install and the others don't, it asks me to reboot and so i do, but then it does what i desribed in the first post, it goes to the windows loading screen, quickly flashes to a blue screen (might be blue screen of death) and suddenly reboots, going in a never ending cycle until i reinstall windows again.

please help, any help is appreciated.

I noticed from your HJT log that you have SP1 have you tried to upgrade to SP2 and see what happens. You can get the upgrade at the windows update site. Look on the right side of the page and you should see a box that has a link to the upgrade. Once you install SP2 get all the updates for it including IE 7. That might solve your problem.

What about creating a new XP Install CCD slipstreamed with SP2?

The simplest way to create a Bootable Windows XP Pro or Home Installation CD Slipstreamed with SP2 is to use Autostreamer. You point to your XP Pro/Home CD, the SP2 Service Pack .exe file, give it a path to write the .iso file to and off it goes. In 5 or 10 minutes you have a .iso file that you can burn to CD with almost any CD burner program you want to use. I used Roxio 7. There is a good freeware burner called DeepBurner which will do this also.

Here is the link to Autostreamer:

You can download the SP2 .exe here:
http://www.microsoft...;displaylang=en

An excellent alternative is nLite. It allows you to merge SP1/SP2/Windows Updates into a new XP CD image that you can install from. Takes a bit of fiddling with but worth the effort since it also allows you to pre-answer all the questions asked during install so all you have to do is boot the new CD, select where you want to install, format or not and go to lunch. When you come back the install is finished and your are at the latest Service Pack and Update level. See here:

Use this site to get the MS updates:

You can also get updates from an MS site but it takes more work:

You don't burn the iso file to CD, you use your burner software to process the iso file to create a bootable CD.

What burner software do you use. As I mentioned, DeepBurner does this very well.
