I have a Windows XP SP3 PC that has a problem with shuting down after I boot up normally.Works fine in safe boot, diagnotic boot. Now it works ok in Normal boot mode also. After some time (many hours of rebooting), I found the problem was with an errant Uninterrupted Power Supply Session (for some reason it will cosume up to 100% of CPU), so I disabled it using msconfig from Run. We had a power glitch several days ago durning a thunder storm and rain, and the system shut down. I use an APC UPS. Something happened to corrupt the file(s) associated with the UPS session. I have rescue CDs and Origianl bootable Windows XP CD, but I don't know which file to use to restore to Windows. I don't won't to do a full Windows system restore, as the last one I did was month's ago!Any suggestions would be most helpful.Thanks, XXXXX XXXXX

i am lordnomi and i would be glad to help you today
i am afraid that feature is not there in windows xp restore
the only thing you can do is to boot computer in safe mode and restore to a previous date
you can use Paragon Backup and Recovery FREE versionhttp://www.paragon-software.com/home/br-free/
to maintain backups externally
windows backup does not provide selective restore option
if you are referring to a manufacturer CD for windows xp restore then refer to the documentation of it
not all manufacturer backup programs provide selective restore also
All the best
I have an Acronis Backup Rescue CD that has selective restore capabilities and full disk restore from previous backup. I need to know which file(s) to restore to Harddrive from backup on D:\ drive to C:\drive to replace corrupted file(s).
without using ACRONIS run this command on run
is it showing any corrupted files
any error messages etc?
ok, I will try it on the PC. I am on my notebook PC now. I let you know the results. Thanks for now. Also, I have Malware byte and Avast A/V software scans and nothing was detected.
no they wont detect it
its not a virus or malware
the command i sent you will fix any corrupted files
if there are no specific software installed, got for a fresh format and install
you will get better speed and no viruses etc
Ok, let me try it on my other PC. I have to boot it up first and I'll get back to you.
If I disconnect from you for now, how do I get back to you?
message me here
i will reply as soon as i can :)

Hi, I ran system file checker on my PC and found no corrupted files. So, the only thing I can do for now is to disable Uniterrupted Power Supply Session by Microsoft in Session Manager and run without it. If don't know what will happen if it is permanently disabled. If you have any other ideas let me know. Thankyou for you help.
That UPS uses USB to connect to the UPS. There maybe an issue with drivers unloading. See if you have the HIVE unloader update for XP from Microsoft. Also go to http://www.slimwareutilities.com/ and download that free program called slimdrivers. Run it to see what driver updates are available.
