    Hi all
    i have a problem with my computer
    yesterday all worked fine
    and then today i wanted to start my computer and the windows loading screen is loading for ever ( i have win xp)
    I started my computer with the option without fail (or whatever it is i have Os in french)
    Since i know some on os i knew that some files are corrupted
    So i'm undecided about what os to choose
    do i choose windows xP again or do i buy windows 7 or even vista?

    Firstly, stay away from Vista. Don't even consider that as an option, consider that as a failure.

    Secondly, if you have Windows XP installation CD, just reinstall OS and you are good to go.

    Altough, before reinstalling OS, I would suggest trying to repair the OS installation. Here is a nice guide on how to do that, http://www.geekstogo.com/forum/topic/138-how-to-repair-windows-xp/

    Once you repair it - back up your data and do a fresh install.

    If you do want to buy other operating system, I definitely recommend Windows 7. You may want to write your computer specifications first, so we could be more specific about the version which would suit you best.

    firstly azo, deepest respect to you for you offering to help him out,
    but i have to disagree with you 200% about vista, sure it has its problems but i run vista, and dont have any major problems with it, unless its something stupid that i've done duh

    anoussa is a wr2 modder and winblows 7 is simply out of the question because our game uses starforce protection, and even with the patches from synetic it doesnt work in win7 hence the reason that i am not using it, so anoussa, dont use win7, either reinstall xp or get ahold of vista..as i said it's not the best, but it does the job mate...i've had vista for more than a year without too many probs

    vista isnt an OS, its a POS (piece of sh..)

    not knowing your pc specs, id have to say XP.

    I asked in another forum and everyone said 7
    i asked some experts they said 7
    so i bought 7 and installed it
    i'm proud of it
    everything work faster, smoother, better and even my battery get a lot more autonomy (up to 6 hours surfing on the net)

    @ anoussa, what about wr2, what about the starforce factor..or have you retired, shut up shop and gone bush?
