How I determine why this is happening and how do I stop it.

Rightclick the system drive icon in Explorer, click Properties, Tools tab,
and run the Error Checking on the drive.

Thank you for your response.

I always run a disk scan before attempting any repairs. And before I as for
help.

This is a family member's computer.

Some forum messages indicate this could result from a hardware/memory
problem.

So, last month when it was doing this I ran memtest overnight. and spinrite
and,..... sandra and,....

(Just ordered some new ram, Just in case.)

=================
But, this time I am tired of this.

And could not get rid of iGoogle. And some other problems.

So, I formated the drive and installed XP anew.

After 3 boots the recovery error headed its ugly rear.

The event log entry, help and support, indicate a driver could not be
loaded. Very helpful indeed.


Where else can I look for clues.

Dell Dimension
XP home

I had SP3 installed, but yet this time.

I had this problem once. It got worse until eventually the computer
wouldn't boot. I then reloaded Windows and the problem started
anew. It ended up being caused by the hard drive not remembering
what was written to it. It was a strange symptom... the drive would
pass all tests and would work fine for several hours, but leave it
sit overnight and it would lose sectors. I replaced the hard drive
and never had this problem again.

If you only have this problem once, it's probably not a big deal.
If it happens every time you reboot, watch out.

In the mean time, keep your backups current.
