What's likely a problem is that you have no less than 4 posts about this issue.

Making new posts may not elicit an answer, but more information which you add
to the post you wish to expand on may help others see what the issue is.

On your part, gory details about the machine, what software you loaded and whether
it's clear of all pests noted by HouseCall, Spybot, Adaware and Cwshredder would help
in removing PARASITES as a cause.

Tell more,

Bob

Going from ME to XP, you would probably be better off and save time by reformatting and doing an XP full install rather than an upgrade. You can do that direct from the CD ROM on bootup.

Meet the drop-resistant Moto Z2 Force

The Moto Z2 Force is really thin, with a fast processor and great battery life. It can survive drops without shattering.
