    thanks for the reply and please excuse me as i am getting old or lets just say i am old.

    it was softmode i wanted on the reboot. i have found with this new MB and 4 processor CPU you have got to be fast.
    anyway by waiting for screen to go black between log up and the xp start screen i got into safemode with network. i have my anti-virus running again and i am happy.
    again thanks for the reply and this issue can be closed
