Sorry i can't remember the exact details but im goin to re-look at a computer tomorrow and need to start gettin some kind of info about this problem...

When xp Home loads, after you type in the user pass and hit Enter, you immediately get an error saying somethin like "windows cannot load or find paging file..." blah and you have to close all TSR's to even do anything or it will lock up.

I went to the system/advanced/virtual memory and it's set at (recommended) 512 - (max) 768mb but toward the bottom it says

Minimum allowed: 2mb
Recommended: 512
Currently Allocated: 0mb

I showed all hidden and system files and i cannot find the pagefile.sys anywhere... btw, the user is the comp admin...

Any ideas?

yea, those are the values i posted, the HD is an 80gb with 74gb free

the PC has 256mb ram so the VM values are 512-768 but it says it can't find the pagefile therefore it shows "Currently Allocated: 0mb"

I've tried creating a pagefile.sys and leaving it in the C: and restarting hoping it would find it and use it.... Also, safe mode wont load b/c it halts at MUP.sys
