Following a major crash, HDD wipe and XP re-install I now have a pop up window on start up telling me to insert the Blueyonder (ISP provider) installation disc. I don't need this but cannot permanantly get rid of the message. I can close it down but it reappears on start up every time. I've run the registry cleaner with my Bitdefender Security suite and been all through my start up menu's but nothing works. Any ideas?

When your OS is Windows 7 then the HDD should be in AHCI properties then if XP it should be ATA properties. Also try to replace you RAM.
It sounds like your Windows Installation is corrupt. If there isn't anything you need on the drive, I would get a Windows XP CD (Look on the side of your case for a Windows Key, Get that version of the CD) Then I'd use that windows XP CD to wipe the drive and Re-install windows. If there is Data on the drive you need, You will need to invest in either a second HD, or You need to Install Windows on a Second HD and boot from that if you already have a second HD.
Foreign disks, or drives that have pre-existing operating systems installed with prior configurations, are often prone to error unless transplanted into systems with a nearly identical configuration.
The only simply way to rectify this issue is to boot off of the Windows installation disk and perform an "In-place Upgrade" or a "Re-install" of Windows. This method will re-install just the main portions of Windows, and write the new configuration, while in theory not disturbing the rest of the drive's data.
While this is a documented and intended function of the Windows installer it does have its issues.
I can say with confidence that you can attempt this, but I would suggest confirming that you have all necessary data backed up before you do.
As far as the other alternative, you can always save your data, plugging the drive into a different machine, and then do a clean install which is a much better choice as far as performance and stability, but the choice is yours.
This link to Microsoft's site further explains the necessary steps for an "In-Place Upgrade" which really means a Re-installation of a Full Copy (Not an upgrade copy) of Windows, if you were concerned about the terminology.
Those are your options. Should you require any more information, please let us know. If this information was helpful, please take a moment to rate this solution, Thank you.

You may insert the Windows XP CD and reinstall Windows XP just to be sure. Follow the instructions on your screen and format the C Drive. Make sure you install all the required drivers to make everything work.
If you are optimistic follow the following instructions: This will help you attempt to repair your system (and not via the Recovery Console). Insert the Windows XP CD and follow the instructions on your screen. Then after a certain point, you will be asked for three options -- 1. Install Windows 2. Repair via Recovery Console 3. Some other option I don't recall.
Select the first option. Then again, follow the instructions on your screen and again the computer will ask you three options. This time select the second one -- Attempt to repair the computer (Press R).
This should start the automated repair process. This has been observed to work most of the time, but in a few rare cases it doesn't work. So I suggest you try it if you have the patience. ;-)
