Hello everybody, I'd thought I'd introduce myself here. My name is Gordon, I have been a computer geek for a little while now. I use Windows XP & Windows 7 a lot, and just recently got a crucial error on my Windows XP computer. I saw the topic here (Links not allowed so I cant post the link, subject is Windows root system32 ntoskrnl.exe) and I am going to use the tips from there to try to get my Windows XP computer back up & running again. Unfortunatelty I have a few important files on there (I make alot of subway signs on that computer, which is why I used the username "MS Paint"). I can always remake them, but some other things (such as one of my train simulator routes) might be lost. So hopefully I can resolve my problem here. Here are a few details about my Windows XP computer... -32 GB Hard drive memory -Intel core proccessor -Insprion 600m -Made by Dell -Currently has Windows XP Service Pack 1 Home Edition The computer is pretty old (I say about 6-8 years), and recently (about 6 months ago) got its Hard Drive completly wiped out and refreshed.
