    Today my comp would not start windows. I got to the welcome screen and I got This message

    "A problem is preventing Windows from accurately checking the license for this computer"

    Tried again and got the same message PLUS this error code - "0x80070002"

    Tried a third time and got a different error code - " 0x80040057"

    Tried to log into safe mode and got this

    "Value creation failed " at line 442"

    I tried to repair windows with my disk and was able to get on for a few moments but my cpu was pegged at 100% it worked for a little and then I went to go into nortons and it told me that something happened and I needed to reinstall nortons. But I can not stay on long enough. to do anything. I always have nortons running so I hope it aint a virus cause I can not get into my comp to even try to remove it.

    I do not think it is a hardware issue but I will post it anyway, just in case
    Windows XP Pro
    AMD Athalon XP 3000+ (Barton)
    Gigabyte pro2 MB
    ATI Radeon 9200
    Crucial 512mb pc3200
    Optorite 8x DVDRW
    Lite-on CDRW
    Maxtor 7200 HD (40 and 80 GB)

    One thing that I did notice is that the room the comp was in was very hot today and I forgot to turn of the comp and left it on for an extended amount of time and when I went into the bios it said the CPU temp was about 68C which is a bit high. Could that have caused this?

    Thank you in advance
