You don't have your XP boot disc (which is used for installation... this is what we are trying to do right now).

OS Name- Microsoft Windows XP Professional (I've been trying to boot from a 3 dic set my mom gave me. its called Microsoft Office XP Wersion 2002. It has a Media Content Disc, The Upgrade disc and the Step by Step Interactive Training CD.

The OS Name is what OS you have installed on your computer already... of course if will be XP.
The disc set you are trying to boot from won't boot from CD since they are CDs to install Ms Office.

You need a XP installation CD, or a recovery or reinstallation CD.
Look for one to borrow from someone...
Or you could use the Gateway recovery partition...
Look here: http://docs.google.c...c...gl=us&pli=1
And use the recover from hard disk method.

You have to look for one to borrow...
Since this problem is caused by RegCure, restoring the registry files from the repair directory should fix the problem, but since you don't have any system restore dates to restore to, you will have a generic registry and many things won't work.

System restore doesn't work, right?

You can also call Gateway for some recovery discs... they shouldn't cost too much.

The method described in the Recover From HDD section of the PDF I linked you to requires a recovery CD too.

Just when I thought things couldn't get anyworse they do...
Before I could log on in safemode now when I press F8 to get to that point it will start the process but it gets to the point where it has
MULTI(0)DISK(0)PARTITION(1)\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\DRIVERS\QI12160.SYS
MULTI(0)DISK(0)PARTITION(1)\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\DRIVERS\PERC2.SYS
MULTI(0)DISK(0)PARTITION(1)\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\DRIVERS\HPN.SYS
MULTI(0)DISK(0)PARTITION(1)\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\DRIVERS\CBIDF2K.SYS
MULTI(0)DISK(0)PARTITION(1)\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\DRIVERS\DAC2W2K.SYS
and so on until it gets to the bottom of the page and it stops like its frozen but I can here the computer (pc) computing something. Do you know what this means?

What driver (.sys) does it stop at?
Try leaving the computer on for about a couple of hours and see if it will go through and boot into Safe Mode.
