Hoping that someone on Techwrl will be able to give me a few good pointers

My system runs XP [current update 3 I believe] and it has been running well
[for about 3 yrs] until just before Xmas.

AV is Avanquest System Suite 10. I have a 'Recovery Disc' that lets me
restore previous checkpoints. Have tried this for two of the listed
checkpoints but no joy. Have got about 10 on the list. I can indeed get
into the 'Recovery Commander' of this restore disc and view some or most

My brother tells me that my current situation [Windows hangs up when I try
to start; problem might have been caused by my accidentally
bumping/unplugging the unit] means that I have to re-install from my
Windows disc [which I do have] and that I will have to do a full install
and not a repair install [thereby losing everything that I have on the HD;
I do have a bunch of docs etc. on a separate drive so all is not completely
lost, but I'd prefer not to go this route].

Thanks. Also - final end-of-life for XP comes in just a few months and I'm
not sure how that has any bearing on my current state.
