Question about Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition

Windows does not start successfully

Lately, almost everytime I turn my computer on, it say:

Sorry for the inconvience but windows did not start successfully. This may be due to a hardware change

then it gives me four options to choose from including "Safe mode" and "start windows normally"

I do not know how to fix this problem.

Please help me!!!

Hello,
Boot to safe mode. Then log in as administrator. Open My Computer, rightclick on C drive. Click properties. Select Tools and then click Error Checking. Select (Automatically fix file system errors) and then click start.

It will ask that you restart the computer. Upon restart it will run a check disk and if there are any file system error that may be affecting your boot up problem, it will fix them. If that was the problem, it should start up after this process. If not then let me know so we can try something else.

Thanks,
Lolita

Windows cannot find regsvr.exe at start up


Probably the easiest way to resolve this issue is by following the steps outlined below.

1. Shut down the computer.
2. Turn the computer on and immediately press F8 repeatedly until you get the "Advanced Boot Options" menu.
3. use the down arrow to select "Safe Mode" and press enter.
4. Window is should start with a "Help" window.
5. In the help window there is an underlined "What is System Restore?"
Click on that and "Click to open System Restore"
6. click on that and a new window comes up recommending restoring to a previous state.
7. Click ok and the operating system should restore your computer successfully and reboot into normal mode.

Read the Thread here.

Note:-
Generic Host Process for Win32 Services or svchost.exe is a legal and essential component of Windows which is used to host services which run from dynamic-link libraries (DLLs).

Please note that legal svchost.exe should reside in Windows\System32 folder and should not appear in startup list.

If it does appear, do a Malware/spyware/virus scan on your PC.

Sounds like U got too much going on. Open the MSconfig - startup tab and uncheck everything, reboot. System will start what it needs to start. Do cleanup then defrag.
Do the above at least once a week.
