So Jackie has managed to break her laptop and get XP into a reboot loop, so I thought I would Google the problem quickly before I attempt to replace the majority of the system files to fix the problem.

After Googling it, I found a link to a site which suggested the fix for the problem. I can’t remember the link for the site, but the site was the site for an MVP (Microsoft Valuable Professional) who is basically someone who provides support for people on the Microsoft community forums.

The ironic part of this rather dull story is that on this guys web site, who is an MVP, there was a search box for Google and also Google AdSense adverts.

Now I would have thought Microsoft would have rules to stop people doing things like that with the Big G!
