Hi,
I have been struggling with an issue, click here for thread, for some time...and I can't seem to solve my problem. So now I am at the point where I want to compare two Windows XP Pro computers configurations...such as user privileges, domain/workgroup setup, etc. Is there any easy way of doing this..such as a tool that does this sort of thing? Or can you suggest what areas I could look at?

Essentially I am trying to run the command line tool, tasklist on computerA and get the processes running on computerB. This is not working for me, however, I can get the list of processes on a computerC (which is running win2k).

Thanks.

Not that I am unaware of...sorry, I had lost track of that thread....this must be low-level registry corruption, which I am sure you are trying to resolve.

At a certain point, you should just re-install Windows on a machine (ie, when the time you spend fixing the problem exceeds the time of a reinstall.)

I think you have reached that point.

Do a backup, first

I reloaded win xp pro on the other laptop and still no luck...i thought it was maybe a SP2 problem...but i guess that's not the case.
