Yes. Tried direct off the thumb drive, directly off the desktop, directly off the secondary drive...

I will format and reload XP, what files and folders need to be backed up?

Suggest you start fresh and just reinstall Mach3 and create a new xml file for the machine after installation of the operating system.

Fixed! I ran the XP repair procedure. Ran the driver test, rebooted, and fired up Mach3. The screen did not load... Was a white screen with just the main file menus. I replaced my .xml fie and custom screen files, reinstalled flash (I got an odd error while rebooting the first time after the XP repair) and rebooted. Restarted Mach and its running like a champ again. In fact it loads really fast now. No problem loading files now.

Thanks for the help and suggestions!

Are you using a custom Flash screen?

I have been running Machmotions Ultimate Screen 2.0 since I set it up over a couple years ago now. Never has been an issue since day one. AWESOME layout!

You need to mention that up front. This was most likely a Flash issue. There are very few Flash screen users here, and even fewer who understand them.

With all due respect, it has never missed a beat. I actually uninstalled the screen and went with the default screen at the time I started to post my issue. I stripped everything I could from Mach and XP to narrow down the issue.

It's easy to blame a problem on something that very little understand. That is why I removed it. It was a non issue during this diagnosis.

So it was crashing with both the regular screen and the Flash screen?

Yes sir. Screens made no difference. XML files made no difference.
