    RE: one of the files containing the system's registry data had to be
    recoverd by use of a log or alternate copy

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

  2. 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.
