After crashes started after electrical power outage, we got a XP blue screen of death with 0x0000008E error code. From that I sent error report and that directed me it was a display driver issue and I should turn off Hardware acceleration and uncheck Enable write combining. Now everytime I reboot, I get:

Windows – Registry Recovery
One of the files containing the system’s Registry data had to be recovered by use of a log or alternate copy. The recovery was successful.

How do I get rid of that recovery on boots now?

Im going to guess this one, disable system restore so that the PC does not know about any past states, now enable system restore again and restart.

I was sometimes having the same problem with my old system . The solution i found was to reinstall the Windows XP. Maybe you can try that and see if it works..

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

I am currently having this problem.  I have no idea what caused it, it just started one day.  Accompanying this, my device manager is now blank, my network is not recognized, my sound no longer works.  Please, help!

Windows – Registry Recovery

That is what I was talking about... it is with every startup.  I can still use the computer, but all those errors are happening, and that popup thingy is happening.

Alison, what I did was booted from the XP CD, chose to install XP, then chose to repair. It looks as though it's a complete reinstall (like you are writing over your programs and data), -- it repairs system file issues only and may reslove your problems. Also, see my section SPYWARE Related at my site wedoc.com down on the lower left of the page, and run the VIRUS Scanners you'll find links to as well. Good luck.
