    Can't access Windows XP

    When you switch your PC on (running WinXP) you get to the WinXP page where the blue squares in that rectangle keep scrolling & then it goes to the log on page

    Well my blue squares keep rolling.

    PC was working fine before. I then ran:

    Ccleaner
    Adaware
    SuperAntiSpyware

    As every now and then i run these programs.

    I now can't get into WinXP.

    I had this once before & asked on another forum (which is down at the mo) but can'#t remember what i did to solve it

    Anyone able to throw some light on the situation?

    Follow jam On Twitter
    Boot from your windows cd
    Select R for repair at the first screen
    Select windows installation 1 from the menu
    At the prompt type chkdsk /r and press enter. Let that run through. Then tell me what happens and we'll take it from there.
    Its a jam thing

    A page finally came up with the option of "start from last settings that worked". Selected that & here i am.

    No idea why it suddenly stopped working. Something important must've been removed when i did the adaware/spyware run

    I've chucked the envelope now, but i'm pretty sure it wasn't.

    It was typical of my place. The date on the top said 2007, the date of the warning gave the correct date, the person i'm to appeal to if i appeal is a totally different guy to normal. He's still a director, but he's nothing to do with this case at all. Hard to explain, but i'm sure it's a typing error.

    Very professional, as ever.


    I just hope i can get up and find something in the new year

    if you or some one at your address did not have to sign for it then it wasn't sent by recorded delivery.

    It was there waiting for me when i got home. I'm sure it just had a standard 1st class on it & nothing else.

    It doesn't matter. ATEOTD the place is a shithole. i'm on a warning. Going down the "it wasn't recorded" route is just clutching at straws really. I've got a year. Now, i've got to find a job in that year (but i've said that before). Either that or i need to be squeaky clean for 12 months now, which is going to be difficult working in a circus.

    i know it dont seem much but if push comes to shuv,keep every letter/document you are sent in the envelope it came in for you to refere to,i know it seems they have it in for you but even your firm has to operate in between the laws of the land and if you seek legai advice at any time in the future concerning them it all helps build up a picture of there ability to follow laid done guide lines which can only be good for you in the long term.
