Reatogo should see any files/folders that are there

The front desk machine has 1 last quirk on it. Chrome browser tabs close when i click them and i can't get into the settings (wrench). This seems a little buggy? I have run the eset scan several times and it is clean. Is there another scanner i should use? Or do i need to repair something?
I uninstalled chrome and re-installed it, but it did not solve the problem.

Windows does keep a backup of this
Using the XP recovery console disc that you have
Boot to the command prompt and type in the following
chkdsk drive /p /r (for drive enter the disc number - probably 0 )
With regards to Chrome I have never actually used it
However once it has been uninstalled via add/remove then from the run key type :
%USERPROFILE%\Local Settings\Application Data\Google
Once in that folder then delete it all

select the 32 or 64 bit version from here
To me this sounds like a programme/service hanging at start
Nothing I click on responds after it boots up. i can click on things, but only up to a certain point. It's like there is a process that starts up that prevents anything from responding. However, once i do ctrl alt del, i click task manager button, but i have to click it twice. then once task manager pops open everything works fine for the rest of my session
Going back to your OTL log I can see the following starting with the system
O4 - HKLM..\Run: [Acrobat Assistant 8.0] C:\Program Files\Adobe\Acrobat 9.0\Acrobat\Acrotray.exe (Adobe Systems Inc.)

What we can do is disable the non-essential ones from starting and see if that helps - would that work for you ?

My computer - when attaching an external drive, windows explorer freezes and won't let me navigate to the drive. This is any kind of external USB connected drive in any of the 3 usb ports. It is running xp pro. Even after disconnecting the drive the system is frozen until i do a hard reboot. I need to attach the external drive so i can back up the contents so i can fix the HP MediaSmart Server system drive!
So, my current issues include:
Front desk computer:
1. Start Up process hang
2. Google Chrome closing tabs when i click on them, not opening downloaded documents, when hitting back button it opens a new window.
1. Bad hard drive - i have tasks to do with the new recovery image
1. External Hard drive attachment freezes computer

However, I think it may not be working because i am trying to do it in my laptop hardware. My husband and I had identical hardware and both our drives died at the same time. his hardware seems completely gone, it does show a power light but it won't respond to the on button. So, to recover his data from his drive i was going to put his hard drive in my computer. However, when i rebuilt my computer i downgraded to xp (this is our fourth set of hard drives in 5 years with these machines. Maybe it's vista, lenovo, who knows). So, I'm guessing this is the conflict? This plan probably won't work???

Download the standalone .exe version of startup control from here this also has a small guide on the page
Run the programme
Go to control panel and you will find a startup element click that
Disable the following :
[Acrobat Assistant 8.0]
[Adobe Acrobat Speed Launcher]
[High Definition Audio Property Page Shortcut]
Reboot - does it load faster ?
When you plug in the external drive are you doing it prior to boot or after ?
Hubbies sounds like it is as dead as a Dodo

I am already booted when i plug in the external drive. I boot with out it plugged in. I plug in and then turn it on. Should i boot with it plugged in?
Is the recovery CD pulling data from the hard drive when starting up? Or reading anything from the hardware? I have another laptop that is very similar but not an exact copy of my husbands machine. I can try to pop the drive in that one and recover it that way, but i can't do that until i get front desk computer back in the store.
Thanks so much!

The recovery disc does read some hardware data
But all files necessary to run are on the CD
You could try to boot with the external plugged in - although it should read it quite happily if it is plugged in after boot
