Thanks for your feedback. I have tried to boot to Safe Mode, it just locks
up most times. A couple of times I have been able to boot in safe, but then
it shuts down when I try to open a program.

I have thought of using the restore system disk for XP that came with the
computer, just didn't want to risk losing some info that I don't have backed
up. I may just put in another hard drive, load XP and work from there. Any
thoughts?

Thanks again,

Shane
