Hi

Delete this new entry from within device manager and reboot the PC, you might as well uninstall the Zip 100 and reinstall it like coral47 has said.

Strange.  Did you try from Safe Mode also? Does the Repair Console have anything to say about this?

Configure your computer to start from the CD-ROM drive. For more information about how to do this, refer to your computer's documentation or contact your computer manufacturer. Then insert your Windows XP Setup CD, and restart your computer.

When the Press any key to boot from CD message is displayed on your screen, press a key to start your computer from the Windows XP CD.

Press ENTER when you see the message To setup Windows XP now, and then press ENTER displayed on the Welcome to Setup screen.

Do not choose the option to press R to use the Recovery Console.

In the Windows XP Licensing Agreement, press F8 to agree to the license agreement.

Make sure that your current installation of Windows XP is selected in the box, and then press R to repair Windows XP.

Follow the instructions on the screen to complete Setup.

Also try deleting and rebooting without the zip hooked up. Let it reboot a few times before trying the zip again.
