Computer boots to "Welcome" and sometimes will not continue.  I found the following comments
WINDEV 5461-1964 Service failed to start due to the following error.  The system cannot find the file specified.  Event Mgr had red X's at 7000 and 7024.   XP2

Keep it simple...........I'm not that savvy!

Thanks,
Carl

Did you perform a check of your HDD surface? It reminds me the problem with an old machine where HDD was about to die and Windows failed to boot from time to time.
First check the drive with HDD VENDOR made tools only. Then connect the drive to working machine and run Virus + spyware check.

Good suggestion.  The machine is 4-5 years old  It's an OEM.  I won't bother with checking the surface..

For a year I've had this strange problem that the machine shuts down after being on 11-12 hours.  Then there is a message "Recovered from a serious problem."

I'll assign the 500 points now.  If you have further commets I'd appreciate them!

thanks for your very prompt reply!

My understanding is that bad sector could happen on the position where necessary file is located on HDD and this could cause the problems for Windows boot. In Windows it marks the bad sector as bad but could not move the file to new position.
Take backup of this drive and reformat it or replace with new drive. Restore to new drive.
Automatic shut down sometimes caused by overheating the CPU or Video.
In case the warranty allows you to open the machine, open it and see the cooling systems condition (I guess it is full of dust). Good vacuum machine is your friend then =)
Thanks for points.

Heat:  Pretty clean.  I don't keep CPU on floor for that reason.
Emachines have history of weak power-supplies so I replace that some time ago.  iI suppose the shut-down problem is one of those quirks that bonds man & machine.  

My armpits are wet.  I've never transferred files from one drive to another.  I've had  a new machine with VISTA...which I hate for a year..  I suppose I should put it into service.  I have a program to transfer data from one machine to another...but have never done it.

AGAIN, THANKS FOR YOUR HELP!!!
