Exasperated by a problem i encountered after installing a KCorps wireless Router. I got the router set up and everything seemed fine until i rebooted. XP would not start and i received an error message stating that 'NTLDR was missing'. After searching around the internet i fixed this by copying the files from my XP disc. I then received a message on the next attempt to boot up that said 'windows could not start boot.ini file missing'. I took steps to copy the missing Boot.ini files from my xp disc, and lo and behold...xp started up. It didn't end there though. I noticed windows firewall had become disabled and no matter how many times i reenabled it, it switched of on restart. i solved this by resetting it. The major irritation i cannt resolve is with IE/Outlook and My computer. When i click on IE to connect it will not open for about 5 mins. Neither will MY Computer find any of my folders until IE connects. Outlook opens fine but freezes on 'send/receive'. After the initial delay of about 5 mins everything opens and works fine!Skype will open immediately and works fine from start up so i assume the connection is okay. Why is this? Are all these problems related? Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Ihave run Norton and detect no spyware and ADaware detected nothing either.
