    when you say you got it from suprnova, do you know which one EXACTLY you d/l, because i had a look and didnt know which one will do a fresh install, even if its not xp, maybe another os, because i have xp pro upgrade.

    The above file is part of your registery, specifically the software info. It seems tp be corrupted though. Reinstall win xp or use the long way :
    Long way:
    go to your new comp.
    copy (export) all your registery.
    put it on cd and copy it to your HD.
    excute it.
    run a registery cleaner. The registery will have many invalide items and keys, so a good registery cleaner will be needed. your comp. will be slower if you do it this way.

    if your comp does not even start, then use MsDos to start it and use commands to do the above.
