Not looking for help but thought I'd let you all know about this guide I found that just saved my @$$ !
http://www.digitalwebcast.com/2002/03_mar/tutorials/cw_boot_toot.htm . I was fooling with a XP system and tried removing Roxio completely with horrible results . Then I tried fixing it and just made it worse . Normally I would just reformat but of course I started messing with it without backup (Dumb@$$) I had stuff on it that I would of had a very hard time replacing. I used the above guide and it worked great. I had to enter alot of stuff into the recovery console. I'm a 4 finger typer so it took a while but it worked great.

Thankyou! That’s been added to my favorites list:D

A very comprehensive well rounded outline. Added to my favorite places as well.

If any one is running win2K this will work for them also since 2K = NT5.0 and XP = NT5.1

I didn’t know if it was worth while to post it but from the response, I guess so. I think most of us backup regularly and if the machine goes down for whatever reason its a good time to just go ahead and reformat. But it seems when I’m busiest is when I forget to backup.
