    First thing's first, see if you can get an error code.  It will look something like 0x00000000, but the last 8 zeros can be alpha numeric characters.  These errors also tend to reference files (blah.sys), if you can find that information I can tell you exactly what's going on with your system.

    That being said, troubleshoot a little bit.  Try booting your system into Safe Mode (normally you can access this by typing the F8 key while your system is loading).  See if that works.  If it does, great!  Chances are you wont need to reinstall windows.  Try getting to event viewer (start > run > eventvwr, OK) and look for any system errors in there.  Post any that you aren't sure of or feel may be related to the issue.

    Another option is to do what's called a repair install of Windows.  This will just overwrite your Windows files and should keep your data safe.  It's a little more trickier than a normal install of Windows but is quite doable.  A great walkthrough is available at  note: you will need your XP CD for this.  Also, you probably want to figure out what caused the error before doing this as the issue could return depending on what's causing the error.

I cant erase or resolve the genuine software in my PC and i see more uninstall files in my local c window. are the genuine software is a virus? or can destroy files? how can i get some of that solution?

That message appears when the activation files have been corrupted. No it doesn't destroys files, it just doesn't allows you to use your pc - use it while you still can to recover your files. if that moment has passed then you will have to recover then using a Linux Live-cd . Then you MUST reinstall Windows, there is no other way of fixing it.

I have been getting a lot of error messages. My pc has been shutting down and when it starts back it says ''Windows has recovered from a serious error''


This is most probably a virus. Best help i can suggest is to get a antivirus and update it before scanning your computer.
If you are wondering which antivirus to use, i suggest bit defender.
Really hope this can help. Please rate this.

Best regards

Desktop doesnt boot.

If you have a windows XP recovery CD, try running that at boot.

also, try pressing the f8 key to boot windows in safe mode.

it sounds like a corrupted OS install: if you can't recover, you may have to reformat your hard drive and reinstall windows.
