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.

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.

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.
