Hi all I am working on getting my OS up and running prior to doing a full reinstall.  I have got pretty far but now everytime I delete or try copying a file I get  this error The memory could not be written.  Then it goes to jit degugging.   I just ran a SFC / SCANNOW or something and it ran through my Windows 2K CD still no dice.  I also held me left shift key down on bootup thinking it might have to do with the admin login autologin then logged on fine but still nothing.  Any other ideas?  Thanks all.  I dont think its specifically memory related as this is all OS mostly going on but not sure.
