Your screenshots do indeed show, as I suspected that you have two WIndows installations on that computer. Both are on the same drive and on the same partition.
One is the original Windows and that is the folder - the yellow coloured icon named Windows
The other is also the yellow coloured icon and is named 0 (That is the numeral 0)
That is on your second screenshot.
Also when that was installed the Recovery Console was installed as a boot option. That is the folder cmdcons
In an earlier post and mentioned by my colleague phillpower2
I think so. When I first started having problems someone suggested that I download a second OS. Now when I first power on it show 3 options: Windows XP is listed twice(the first one is the last one I downloaded which allows me to sign on)(the second one is the original XP which is stuck in setup
It is more or less certain that this is what has occurred.
Now to the crux of the matter.
There is no LEGAL and legimate download of Windows XP
available. There are downloads available, on the web, but they are not a legal licensed use of the Microsoft License conditions.
This site, GeekstoGo,
does NOT provide any assistance whatsoever with illegal software, or the improper use of licensed software.
The posting of links or references to warez or any other type of illegal software is strictly forbidden. By doing so you risk having your user account terminated without warning. We will NOT help anyone we suspect of having obtained their software or services illegally.
Please do not think that I am suggesting that you have known of the consequences, of downloading the XP, if indeed that is what you have done, or someone else has done for you, nor indeed at this time am I ABSOLOUTELY certain this is what has occurred.
It does seem to me however that despite the time lag involved in you orginally asking for help last December and now, you must know, how this second installation of XP appeared on your computer. By that I mean, you must know if you did it, someone did it for you, it was from a website download, or it was from a CD.
If you KNOW that, XP was downloaded from a website, please do say so now.,
as it appears to me and I would think to my colleague phillpower2,
as well, although he will I am sure post, that we must have your assurance on this point before we progress. Indeed we may well ask you to run a program that will verify the legitimacy of the Windows installation.
Finally I hope you are not annoyed and appreciate the situation.
