Question about Microsoft Windows XP Professional

Windows xp sp2 reboot

Hi,

to start off this is a problem with windows registry, i just need someone who can guide me to the right spot instead of me trying to search the entire windows registry.
I want windows to reboot when I ask it to do in the start/ shutdown menu.
I also had the problem with the power off, but someone already guided me to the registry key of that.
it shows windows is shutting down " (or something like that, my xp is dutch) and after a few seconds it should reboot, but it doesn't.

can someone tell me where to look.

You can start by downloading GUIDED HELP .

This application is provided for free in the Microsoft Knowledge Base.

The registry is a volatile environment to enter without prior experience

or the presence of a full backup.

Startup and shutdown issues are addressed by a variety of registry keys

and you can destroy your system with good intentions. This is an area

best addressed by Microsoft as I have seen mixed results with so-called

registry cleaners. Also get a full understanding of how to use ASR

in Windows XP.

Hope this gets you started.....................Nate P.

In my system i instaled winxp sp2; but one error is coming strtdb80.exe Application error please solve my problem


Looks like previously your system invoked strtdb80.exe automatically during startup. But now , since you have formated and installed new operating system, the file got deleted. May be that file was a virus component, dont worry for it. And If you want to get rid of the error message, you can go for a PC tuning tool like Tune up Utilities. This tool will defragment the registry and resolve all problem.

Windows xp boots but the desktop will not come up


Hi,
Log in using SAFE MODE. While laptop boots, press F8 and it will prompt for which mode to login. Select 'SAFE MODE'. Once logged in try to restore the OS to a previous good restore point.
If you've a backup of the registry key, it will help better. Just restore the registry from the backup instead of going for an old restore point.
Please come back and rate my solution if this turns to be helpful for you or also if you need more clarification. Thnx

Sounds like you are running out of ram for the program. Try upgrading to some more ram in your system. Windows xp recommends minimum 512k of memory to run.
