Vista Upgrade [problem - Windows Explorer loop

    I have a Motion 1400.

    I upgraded to Vista using the Microsoft DVD. I did not use the full install.

    Vista comes up but is hung up on searching and finding a solution to a
    problem with Windows Explorer. The computer is unable to do any more than
    stay with this. Let me explain.

    A box appears saying that there is a problem with Windows Explorer and that
    Windows is looking for a solution.

    A minute later, a box comes up saying that the Windows Explorer does not
    work correctly and that Windows was closing this program.

    If I do not click the cancel box, the computer seems to stop. By this, I
    mean that the clock stops.

    When I click the cancel box, the process starts over again and again, and on.

    At the beginning, while Windows looks to correct the problem with Explorer,
    a box appears and asks for the original disc for Office 2003. This was
    installed by the University administrator. I have an Office disc but cannot
    install it on Vista. When I cancel the task, the box does not reappear.

    Only the Windows Explorer box search-for-solution box appears.

    I read on one of your responses a way of getting into the BIOS as a way of
    accessing the Vista DVD for a system install. I have some concern doing this
    without guidance. At my level of expertise, this is not for the faint hearted.

    Is there a solution to this problem such that I can use Vista? Can I do a
    full install of Vista now? If not, how can I go back to XP? Will I have to
    reformat? I hope that I do not have to reformat the computer and reinstall XP.

    Look forward to your wisdom.

    Sorry for the large number of repeat messages. It was not clear that any of
    them went through.
