1.Have you made any software or hardware changes on the computer prior to this issue?
2.What is the exact error message you receive?
Let’s follow these methods & check if the issue persists:
a) You may boot the computer into ‘safe mode’ and check if the issue re-appears. It will start Windows XP with a limited set of files and drivers. Startup programs do not run in safe mode, and only the basic drivers needed to start Windows are installed,
follow the steps to boot the computer in safe mode:
i. Restart the computer.
ii. Start tapping F8 key.
iii. You will get Advanced Boot Menu Option window.
b) If the issue does not re-appear in safe mode, you may configure the computer in clean boot state and check if the issue persists. It will start Windows XP by using a minimal set of drivers and startup programs and helps to eliminate software conflicts.
DO NOT use Ccleaner's Registry cleaning function, registry cleaners are all next to utterly useless and for most part they cause more harm than good, they're a fix for non-existent problems, at best they do nothing to improve performance and at worse they cause
problems where none previously existed.
Programmers are either not taught about Occam's razor or they forgot about it the following day.
