The blue screen noted the 1st reason for this error is not enough disc space (think I have 9GB of free space out of 19GB on my main drive) and I'm sure that was the reason I got the error and would have never tried this method had I know that the "repair" requires a lot of disc space. I'm now just hoping that I can get my desktop XP Prof. SP3 started again without losing all my data/programs.
Note: several years ago I had a major problem with this same desktop and the wonderful Geekstogo person spent many a day partitioning my desktop to get me up & running again. This is being entered using my wifes laptop so I can still get emails regarding possible fixes. Also I had just run Malwarebytes, SuperSpyware and Norton scans.
