Just wondering if anyone knows what to do when they expereince problems with
page.sys.

I accidentally filled my hard drive while downloading the other day and to
free up space i thought i would delete a large file i had (about 700 mb) my
computer told me it was being used and since i couldn't find what was using
it i restarted the computer.

After the login screen windows told me i had problems with page.sys (or i
didn't have a page.sys) and then did not log me in, it just stayed at that
'loading personal settings' screen.

I restarted in safe mode with command prompt and deleted that file to free
up some space (it is just a movie file, not used by the system) and that
didn't help. I can't even get into normal windows safe mode, jsut the command
prompt.

Any suggestions?

Go back to Safe Mode with Command Prompt and try a System Restore from
there.
