Please can you help.
When I start up ( windows XP ) I get a box which say " Registry data not found " and OK. It doesnt seem to make any difference but I dont know what it is.
I am a novice to this, so I need all the help I can get, in plain English please.

Thank you
Liz

Has it always done this? If not try running System Restore back to a time before the problem Started.

Start, All programs/Accessories/System tools/System Restore

How long may i ask have you had Xp?

I have had new pc for 3 months, but this problem started Saturday, I had problems with it crashing which has never happened before. I though I must have downloaded a bug or something, I cleared all the downloads I didn't want, these were ones from internet not preinstalled or anything I wonder now if something has messed up

Try a System Restore (as above) back to Friday.

Thanks, but just tried system restore and it has told me it" cant restore to this point", it went through all the process and then said it couldn't do it, do I keep trying different dates?

You could try another restore point.

If that doesnt' work then:

Reboot and then keep tapping the F8 key just before the Windows screen appears. A Windows Advanced Options menu should appear.

Use the Arrow keys to select Last Known Good Configuration, and then press ENTER.

This should reload your most recent settings that worked.

follow VoG's advice, and if that fails
Repair your XP installation..
1: Reboot with XP CD
2: Select Setup Windows XP(ignore "R" repair)
3: Press F8 accept EULA
4: Press R and select your damaged XP installation to repair.Your configuration should be intact.

GoodLuck
