Specs: Windows XP
My desktop started up okay, retrieved email, crashed while I wasn't looking, now it starts up automatically, checks Fat32 Files, sometimes does something to some files, sometimes doesn't, my desktop page starts up, then closes and the loop repeats. I don't know much so if anyone has help to give, please do it in simple language. Thanks in advance!

Try to start windows in safe mode, check autostart programs and scan for viruses.

Please send a reply, if you solved the problem !!!

Started in Safe mode, ran virus check, no viruses detected. Then I uninstalled IE 8 as I have had trouble with their downloads before. Started up this morning and doing the same thing.

I'm running xp and I did not schedule the check disk. It checks the FAT32 file (?) after it shuts down on it's own. I replaced the battery just to see. But so far it's still doing the same thing. I've tried to restore, same thing. When I cancel the disk check the desktop comes up without anything but the background picture and shuts down. Then the whole thing starts again. I'm not sure what you proposed applies to my computer. I couldn't find the right product to put in the product line, the one that's there was the only option even close. I have an old HP pavillion.

Since my last reply I've found a way to disable the driver you tried to get me to disable, but that didn't work either. I've found a bunch of stuff regarding AMD conflicts with Win service pack 3. But I'm not sure when I installed mine. I'm tempted to uninstall it just to see, I was also wondering if it was getting too hot, so I cleaned out the box and made sure the fans both run. I think it's been hot where the case lives. But I can start in safe mode just fine so far. And I found the log of all the events. I think it started with a MS update. But I've uninstalled the most recent ones, even restoring to a date before that. I don't know....
