Sorry, but I can't see the first part of your question. What do you mean "that" did not work? If you can provide specific information, I can give you specific advices.
In general, to terminate a "process" in XP, bring up the task manager by hitting control+shift+escape keys all at once. Once the task manager comes up, click on the process tab and look for the process in question. You can then choose to terminate the process. HOWEVER, this can make your system unstable depending on what process you're terminating.
By "disable the process", do you mean to prevent a service from running? That is a completely different process.
Hope this helps.

My hp f1703 monitor keeps scrolling all the time except when started in safe mode any suggestions would help.

bring up the system in safe mode means you are disabling all third-party and unwanted programs and services. This generally narrows down the issue you are facing might not be related to anything by default but third-party or other installed programs/services etc......below are the quick suggestions I would recommend.....

a) while in safe mode bring up the msconfig tool (just type msconfig in the search option on your windows screen and click on it)
b) Click services tab and choose hide all microsoft services, now you should be able to only see third party services. Click option disable all.
c) Now click the startup tab and disable all thirdparty programs first you feel you have not installed, then disable programs that you feel are not related to the working of the computer and windows. (please note if you are not a pro guidance/help on this from an expert will be recommended). click apply and now reboot your computer.

Most probably the issue should have been resolved. If it persists kindly reply so that I may be able to assist further. Regards from a Microsoft Troubleshooting Expert.

Pc running XP pro reinstalls the usb devices on every boot. I have run all updates and installed the latest chipset drivers from Acer's website. I have completely removed all usb entries from device...

There are several possibilities. If you have already uninstall and reinstalled the USB driver and also if you've updated the drivers, then it could be Bios issues. You'll need to update the BIOS of your motherboard, the bios files and instructions should be available at the Manufacturer's website. Since you didn't mention much about your computer configuration or model etc.. I am unable to give you the link.

What USB device exactly does your computer always install on every boot? Does this happen once the computer is booted or when usb device is connected?

I would recommend you to boot the system into Safe Mode and see whether the problem persists or not. If not, then run the "msconfig" command from the "Run" and disable all the startups services. To do this, click "Start" > "Run" > and type in "msconfig" [without quotes], press "Enter". Now on the new window click "Startup" tab and disable all the devices except your sound devices/driver [you'll be identify by name], igfxpers, hkcmd, and few more things you can recognize. Click "Apply" then "Ok" and restart your computer.

If this helps, enable few more startups from the msconfig and keep restarting your computer until you find out the culprit and leave it disabled. This is one of the most important and easiest method to deal with start up issues.

I would also recommend you to try this from microsoft (Click Here)

The best method to find out the culprit is, install a new window [in your case windows xp] on as additional O.S. or dual boot. You may install on the same partition i.e. C: or you may install on any partition, once everything is installed, boot up the system through the second windows xp and see if the same problem persists or not, if the problem persists, then it's confirmed that your bios is outdated or having problem, you need to update the bios.

If in case there is no problem when booting from the new windows, then there must be some conflict or incompatibility issues. You need to uninstall all the devices' drivers and softwares and reinstall them one by one until you find out the cause.
Awaiting the results. Good Luck.

How to either turn off or disable "safe mode" at windows xp

How do I disable Safe Mode? (NT, 2000, XP)
Windows NT, 2000 and XP do not have any easy way to disable Safe Mode. However, there is a way to 'break' safe mode temporarily.

Doing this is not recommended. Proceed at your own risk!

Click on the Start Button
Select Run
Type in "regedit" and hit OK
Expand the left hand side to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\SafeBoot
Under SafeBoot, you should now see Minimal and Network. Click on them and hit F2 to rename them to "Minimal-" and "Network-", respectively.
This should cause Windows to crash the next time it is booted into Safe Mode.

Hi p_nusbutter.

Based on the information you have provided, the issue might be due to the TCP/IP settings in the Computer.

Hence, it would be better to first disable the IPV6 settings and check if the issue is resolved.

I have also mentioned the link which has the information to disable the IPV6 settings.

Please follow the steps mentioned on the above link to disable the IPV6 settings.

Disabling the IPV6 settings should resolve the issue.

If the issue still persists, please perform the steps mentioned in the next link which I have provided.(below)

The above link has all the detailed troubleshooting steps.

Hence, please perform all the steps mentioned on the page.

This should resolve the issue.

Please do not mind, as I have provided the links instead of the direct information.

As there are a lot of troubleshooting steps, I have forwarded the links.

However, please perform the steps.

This should resolve the issue.

Hope this helps.

Please feel free to ask further questions.

Password restore for window home xp

You do need a little tool called NT Passwords which has to be burned to a CD after unzipping it. You can use tools like Nero Burning Rom to burn the ISO file. The tool works with Windows 2000 and XP only, no Vista support yet. Boot your system from CD and you should see a prompt that asks for user input. The first step would be to select the partition of your Windows installation. After that the program asks for the path to the Windows registry, this depends on your version. For xp it would be “windows/system32/config”, for Windows 2000 “winnt/system32/config”.
Just press enter in the next dialog which will lead to the password reset options. Press enter again because choice [1] “Edit User Data and Passwords” is what we want.
Enter the username that you want to change the password from, remember it is case sensitive. You will be prompted to enter a new password. If you want you can change the passwords for other accounts as well or leave the program by hitting “!”, then “q” to quit and Y to accept the changes.

Compaq presario v3000 laptop..doesnt recongize the hard drive

I beleive that you are trying to install retail versions of XP which will not be able to detect the Hard Drive in the Notebook as it is a SATA drive and Windows XP will not be having the drivers for SATA Hard Drives by default.
In this situation, I recommend you to check and disable the SATA Native support  option available in the BIOS.
Start the Notebook and start tapping the F10 key which will take you to to the BIOS Setup window.
In this, go to the System Configuration tab using the Arrow keys and select the option as Disabled next to SATA Native Support.
Press the F10 key again to save the settings done and exit BIOS.
Now, you should be able to use the Windows XP disk and install Windows XP Operating System in your Notebook without any issues.
By disabling the SATA Native Feature, the Hard Drive of the Notebook will be detected as a IDE Drive because of which we will be able to install XP without any issues.

Donot Re-Enable this feature in the BIOS again as the Operating System may not boot. Let the option next to SATA Native Support be Disabled.
Hope this helps...
