Bootmgr is compressed


The Windows operating system allows you to compress the files on your drive to conserve disk space. In some situations, this compression process will compress files required for the operating system to boot. Files that are compressed must be decompressed prior to execution. Since the operating system has not loaded, boot files cannot yet be decompressed. In this case, the operating system will fail to load and a "BootMgr is compressed" message will appear. An easy way around this problem is to boot from the Windows DVD, and use the provided interface to access your drive properties and decompress it.

Turn on the computer, and insert your Windows DVD. Press a random key on your keyboard once you see the "Press any key..." message. This interrupts booting from the hard drive and forces a boot from the Windows DVD. Click the "Next" button at the bottom of the Windows 7 dialog, and then click the "Repair your Computer" link Below. http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows7/What-are-the-system-recovery-options-in-Windows-7 http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa364219(v=vs.85).aspx File Compression and Decompression Select the "Load Drivers" button at the bottom of the "System Recovery Options" dialog, and click the "OK" button on the "Add Drivers" dialog. This opens a file browser on your screen. Click the "Computer" icon, which is located on the left hand side of the screen. This displays an icon for your disk drive. Right-click your hard drive, and click "Properties. " This opens a Local Disk Properties dialog. Click to deselect the "Compress this drive..." option at the bottom, and then click the "Apply" button. Select the "X" icon to close the file browser window. This takes you back to the Install Windows dialog. Press the "X" icon at the corner of the Install Windows dialog. This opens a cancellation dialog. Select the "Yes" button on this dialog to restart your computer. Hope this helps

Computer problem unable to open up on win xp my antifirus


LOL, if you are saying your antivirus Comodo will not open up when you press the icon then maybe you should remove Comodo. I used it once and it drove me crazy asking me for approval on just about everything I clicked on. Try a smooth, simple and free Antivirus such as AVG, AVAST or Microsoft Security Essentials.

So, what is happening when you click the Comodo Icon? Does it bring up a window asking you to select a program to open it with (means a virus has changed your program file associations)?

Have you tried booting in Safe Mode to open it. Turn off the computer, then turn it back on and immediately start hitting the F8 key repeatedly until you see Safe Mode. Select Safe Mode and let it boot up. Safe Mode will look different to you. The screen will be darker and the icons bigger, this is normal. See if you can open Comodo when the desktop appears.

    Open Control Panel, Printers and faxes. Check if there is icon for your printer. If not, you have to install the driver using CD that comes with the printer.
    Blue screen often means very badly broken windows installation and your vendor probably reinstalled it as new installation. Therefore your printer may not be installed.

    PC Display after booting


    Okay this is a flaw with XP. what you need to to is when that happens. Wait for the screen to load and press Ctrl+Alt+Delete and that will bring up task manager. Under the file button on the top right hand corner and select New Task (Run...). Then the run box opens up and type in the box EXPLORER.EXE that should show the task bar and shortcut icons. If you need any more help just ask me.
