What's in the Event Viewer?
Since installing SP2, I have had problems starting Windows XP. About half the time, I get a message screen the tells me that windows did not shutdown correctly the last time because of a power failure or newly installed software/hardware (neither is true). It doesn't matter if I am rebooting or starting from a power up.
If I select the option "Start Windows Normally", the system just loops around and I end up with the same message screen. If I select "Start with last good known configuration", it will usually start. Sometimes this doesn't even work, but I have GoBack, so I can always revert to a previous disk configuration.
Generally, if I let the system idle for about 15 minutes before rebooting or powering down, then Windows will start correctly the next time.
I have run several Windows and disk utilities to find the problem, but they all have not found any trouble. I have run Norton Anti-Virus scan and SpySweeper, and found nothing.
Thanks for your help
