yesterday I tried to bootup (the machine btw is a Dell 3Gig HT, 1Meg DDR). On the welcome screen it seemed to hang for a long time, then the wallpaper appeared with no icons. As the pc seemed to very quite i panicked a bit and switched off. I booted into safe mode to look for anything I should be wary of. I reacon it is taking about 5-10 mins to boot up and as i type this on another pc it is still trying to connect to it. I have no internet access on it.
Any ideas?
Thanks
Dave

yes i was fool enough to install warez P2P on Friday, got rid of it now.

I don't understand this. In the first post you said no internet access. In your reply you said installed P2P.

Or do you mean you can no longer access the internet? If so System Restore and if that doesn't solve it click here

So you installed a p2p client on the pc and then the problems started I'd put my money on a virus infection of some sort.

Hi,
I have recently reformatted my hard drive and of course reinstalled all the necessary. When I go into User Accounts there is my own, guest an ASP.NET.Machine A…, 'Limited account Password Protected'.
I deleted it the last time I reinstalled XP Pro, any ideas?
Thank you in advance

PS to VOG if you are looking in, apologies for not thanking you for yours help with my last problem back in Sept. it's a long story.

click here will tell you all about the ASP.NET user account

It's not malicious,it is from Microsoft and installs with the .NET Windows updates and is part of the asp.net developer program.

If that means absolutelt nothing to you then you can safelt deleye the ASP.NET account (I have).

Last sentence should read

"If that means absolutely nothing to you then you can safely delete the ASP.NET account (I have)."

Oooops!
