How to repair Windows XP Pro
Posted on 2013-01-29
I have a computer that I'm pretty sure just needs a good Windows Repair ran. When it turns on I am able to login, but after a few minutes it just locks up. I can move the mouse, but applications stop loading. I can double click the desktop, but then that locks up too. If I CTRL ALT DEL then everything disappears and I just see the background. The options to open up Task Manager never appear.
Attempting to boot into the types of Safe Mode (regular, networking, command prompt) just force the PC to reboot - they don't even make it to the XP title screen. Last Known Good Configuration is equally useless.
I do not have the disc. I have access to a bunch of ISOs on Microsoft Licensing. Would I be able to download an ISO from there to run a repair? Help!
