Windows XP Professional :: What Happens after a Repair Install? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I just had a STOP: c000218 error crash and I have just pfrmd a repair install of my Windows XP Pro.

    Now, it is running ok wif minimal process load (view thru Task Manager), and truthfully I need to do new installations of other software.

    After the repair install, I found;

    1. First visible thing I can see my profile being created new from 'izzool' to 'izzool.SERIAL NUMBER', wic I dont like having it. Even my Administrator profile being created new (dunt like that either!).

    2. Next, whutever desktop setup that I have had created is set back to default. ie: shtcuts, wallpaper, scr saver.

    3. And to burden me further, many apps cant run as it not being reg into the new registry.

    My inquires now is, what eventually happens after the repair install?


    *Pls ignore my tyo since I need to make this note short. Tks
