This is the reason all the big repair shops will not repair but only do a fresh install. That way you always eliminate a software, virus issues. Also Windows will usually not install or install very slowly on a HDD that has a large number of bad sectors.

Default XP PRO Reboots

Hi squirrelnmoose
Thanks for your tip I will keep that in mind.
In saying that I normal quote to a client that I will attempt to clean a system, then re-install if all else fails, but then you have to look at time management as well.
Maybe I could get some of your great advise and ask for a list of guidance in step by step order for slow computers and computers that keep rebooting at log on, before or after.
Thanks again for all your help Peoples.

P.S Here a quick Question for your all if any one might know, just before the new year I had three computers with vista come in for repair because they all cashed after SP1 was downloaded in the windows updates all had to be re-installed.
