    My hard drive died and I replaced it. I re-installed Windows XP from
    my emachine resotre disk and XP freezes about 5 minutes after loading.
    I also get an error message when I try to log in saying something to
    the effect of, could not load profile due to registry file not in
    registry format.

    The hard drive was auto set to slave.
    I thought it may be memory but put in an additional 512 stick which did
    not help.

    Please help!

    Sounds like it didn't get installed properly. Format and try it again.

    Is it possible you are reloading from 'read only' media, and the
    reloaded files have maintained that attribute?

    Just a thought...

    is the disc your trying to install for that machine or another machine?
    if it is for another machine then it will not work because is is looking
    for the specific componants for that machine and was made for that
    machine only you need a stand alone real windows disc.
