Ok so I have done my research on this but just wanted to make sure that there isnt any other problems out there....

I have a win xp (32bit) machinewith AMD 64x2 3800+, Asus A8N-SLI PremiumMotherboard, Linksys Nic, XFX 7800 GT video and I installed Vmware 5.5 and the computer rebooted without the installation finishing.  Then it went into an infinite loop of restarting....

I turned off the automatic restart and it happened again with NO BLUE SCREEN...


some other software that I have installed is
AIM triton (which is wat to slow)
Daemon Tools 4.03 ( had 4.0 when the problem occurred, recently upgraded, havent tried installing since VMWare yet)  u'll see why in one of the threads..
Serv U FTP server


I found the following threads

I just want to make sure that before I attempt the installation again. That it was indeed daemon tools 4.00 that caused the problem.  I really dont feel like wiping out my system and reinstalling the OS.

Thank!
