when the system is up and running, right click MY COMPUTER, choose PROPERTIES< choose COMPUTER NAME tab, choose CHANGE button.

Change the computer from domain to workgroup, if it is a workgroup, give it a new workgroup name, click OK, reboot.

it will not hamper your internet, but it will hamper network use if you are in a workgroup

We will change it back, this is just a test.

The domain message "The system couldn't log on. Make sure username n domain name are correct". and after cliking ok button "

is curious

i think its the burden that system is not taken of ... look its only 300 ..

and xp and 2000 take too much resources as i know .. but .. may be some other reason ..

did you try 98 or me on it ?

that is a valid point....fitting xp onto that system is like putting on a pair of pants that is four sizes too small.

That said, the domain logon message does not fit with this scenario

the second sounds like a java error....and possible a trojan running in the background.

the first is still perplexing to me. Why did you "upgrade"

Did you know that you can install with the xp upgrade cd, and it will ask you to supply proof of previous OS (and you insert your windowsme or windows2000 cd and hit enter)

Upgrading from earlier OS's seem to cause peculiar problems from time to time, and if this has occured ever since the upgrade, I'm inclined to think that is your case.

as i stay online most of the time ........ i regularly run the adware, spyboot and registery optimizer.. and i have macAfee antivirus install in my machine but it shows this thing every day whenever i shut down my computer.

well i didn't know that .. i just had xp pro cd with me .. and i run it and choose the option upgrade while installing it. Yeh i also think like its becuase of the previous os.. the lay out of the username and password seems to be of 2000. So is there any possibility to mend this thing.

And one more trouble.. my system all sudden hangs and leaves patches behind if i drag the window. and some times when i clik clt+alt+del all the patches will be gone and system works fine for while but then it hangs again and it won't show that task manager at all.

Thanks very much for prompt reply

patches behind?

If you mean leaves video artifacts, I would say once again you are pushing this system beyond its ability with windows xp...minimum requirements are p2 300 with 128, but that is with all the eye candy turned off.

you could disable much of it and see if that improves performance by right cliking MY COMPUTER< choose PROPERTIES< choose ADVANCED, choose PERFORMANCE settings button, and choosing "BEST PERFORMANCE).

additionally, a hijackthis log might help us to see if something is running in the background that should not be
