its never a good idea to disable system restore. i suggest enabling it asap.

it's useful undoing harmful changes, like your problem. i'm stumped.

i suggest you wait for a Staff Expert to come by and have a look. sorry i couldn't help.

YES. I have the XP disc

you see, I had to reinstall XP OS completely last to solve this issue. Now I had ended up with identical problem..... I was hoping to find some one who would be able to help me solve this the proper way.

looks to me that this is some sort of simple registry change that could have such outcome
