I bought a new laptop and did a complete backup of the old dying one and restored that on top of my new laptop using the NTBackup program on the XP installation disk. All the things were working fine but the problem now is every restart I am getting the below error:
Faulting application svchost.exe, version 5.1.2600.2180, faulting module
ntdll.dll, version 5.1.2600.2180, fault address 0x00018fea.
After that the services fail to automatically start but do start manually, except the firewall service that tells of an accress denied error when it tries to start. Any ideas?
