You have to determine what program causes the "Illegal Operation" and remove/uninstall that.

Since it is presumably among your start-up, it may be found in:
1. click on  Start, Programs, Startup;
2. click on  Start, "Run", type "msconfig", Startup tab;
3. click on Start,  Programs, Windows Explorer, right click on Autoexec.bat, edit;
4. click on Start,  Programs, Windows Explorer, right click on config.sys, open with Notepad;

Good luck and kind regards.

My Dell OptiPlex GX 520 has frozen. It runs Windows XP. Here in the UK, we have had a cold snap in what the papers are calling "The Coldest Day". Dunno if that's got anything to do with it. Anyway, I came...


The weather has nothing to do with the operation of your computer, as long as the computer is indoors and it is operating within a temperature of about 15 degrees and above.

The problem must be on your Operating System (OS), it must have been corrupted and is failing to load the operating system. This could be caused by a number of reasons, which may include, a recently installed program or hardware, viruses.

You need to repair the operating system to solve this problem.
Use your Windows XP OS installation CD to perform a system repair.

To perform a system repair, follow these steps:

Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} Procedure for performing a Windows XP Repair:
  • Insert the Windows XP CD.
  • Restart the computer, and then press any key to boot from CD.
  • Windows will ask you to press R to repair using recovery console, ignore this message and press Enter to continue with setup.
  • After the files have been loaded, Windows will start and a list of options will be displayed. These will include, “Press Esc for a new installation”, “Press R to repair Windows”.
  • At this point, press “R” to repair Windows XP.
  • Windows will restart and the repair process will continue automatically.
  • Windows will restart and ask you again to press any key to boot from CD, ignore this message and let the process continue automatically.
  • A blue screen will appear and the installation will continue.
  • You will also be asked to enter your product key, enter the product key that came with the CD, then continue with the setup process.
  • Windows will restart for the last time, ignore the “press any key” message again. Windows will welcome you in for the first time, the repair process will have been complete.

Performing a system repair will not delete your data or change your settings.

If this doesn't solve your problem, you will have to make a new installation of you Operating System, let me know and I will show you how to do this.
Thank you for using Fixya,

I own a PowerLook 2100XL-USB scanner . I was doing some scans and it was working fine . I got to the 3rd scan and it would not do the scan. It powered up fine and even did the preview image fine of the...

This is a general solution for all IT products. ( I dont have PowerLook2100XL). Uninstall the scanner and disconnect. Start the computer and run scandisk/chkdisk and eliminate any errors in the OS. Restart the computer and load the scanner driver and scanning software. Normally this hsould work. Good Luck

Operation could not be completed. The print spooler service is not running.

To fix the error message, in Windows XP, click on start, control panel, then administrative services. From here double click services and scroll down to print spooler and double click on the icon. Change startup type to automatic and click start below that and you are rolling. If the problem occurs repeatedly contact the manufacturer of your printer for best fixes.
