Well known problem .... if you have a multi boot system with Xp and Vista/Win7 everytime you boot into XP the Vista/Win7 restore points will be deleted.

This only happens if you use the Windows Boot Manager though. I would suggest using a third party Boot Manager to get over the problem.'

I recommend OSL2000 loader which can handle just about any OS on any partition on any disk

Missing bdfdll.sys


Hi! Welcome to FixYA!
File bdfdll.sys is located in a subfolder of "C:\Program Files". Known file sizes on Windows XP are 8,704 bytes (61% of all occurrence), 7,808 bytes. However, some malware camouflage themselves as bdfdll.sys, particularly if they are located in c:\windows or c:\windows\system32 folder.So I suggest you run a full scan.If that doesn't work , you may try doing a system retore to bring the computer back in time when the issue is not yet present. For Windows XP:
1. Click Start, point to All Programs, point to Accessories, point to System Tools, and then click System Restore.
2. On the Welcome to System Restore page, click to select the Restore my computer to an earlier time option, and then click Next.
3. On the Select a Restore Point page, click the most recent system restore point in the On this list, click a restore point list, and then click Next.
Note A System Restore message may appear that lists configuration changes that System Restore will make. Click OK.
4. On the Confirm Restore Point Selection page, click Next. System Restore restores the previous Windows XP configuration, and then restarts the computer.
5. Log on to the computer as an Administrator. Then click OK on the System Restore Restoration Complete page.

For Vista or 7:
1. From within Windows, you can just type restore into the Start menu search box, and you'll immediately see System Restore at the top of the start menu:
2. Then please follow the on-screen instructions.

Hope this helps.

Following a System Restore on my Dell Inspiron it has come up with windowsroot system 32 ntoskrnl. The computer was not supplied with the full Window's XP home edition CD, just a Dell reinstallation CD...


If you get that message every time you run system restore, that restore point is no longer any good. You need to try a different restore point on a different date. System restore is NOT meant to be a backup. You need to be running a backup of your computer if you don't want to lose your data. Hopefully you will have another restore point, possibly earlier than the one you used, which is good. If you need to reinstall windows, you will need to get a disk. You can send me a message if you need one.

Windows XP stops at "shutting down"....


It seems to me that You need to uncheck the "delete paging file at shutdown". Deleting the paging file slows the shutdown of Your system considerably.
