I have an Advent laptop with WinXP. When booting it goes into a program PC Angel asking If i want to restore. I have used both options , safe rstore and restore with quick format but after a succesful restore, it then reboots and goes thro the same process again. If i quit the process, windows does start and appears to be ok, but gain on restart the pc angel kicks in. Any ideas please

See if it is listed in msconfig and disable it click here

PC Angel normally runs before Windows loads. I had it on one of my PC's and it was disabled when I installed Acronis True Image so I'm guessing that ATI did something to the boot sector. The Fixboot command might work click here

I've just had a thought. Using Fixboot might disable PC Angel permanently so either use something like ATI to create a disk image or don't try it if you want the option to use it in the future.
