I called around and it will cost me 250.00 to get the proper programs to boot my computer. And i paid 400.00 for the computer not even a year ago. I don't want to pay that much.

I HAVE PAID FOR RENEWAL OF qUICK HEAL ANTIVIRUS. hOW CAN i ACTIVATE MY pc ANTI VIRUS ?


You should have gotten a license key or something when you paid for the renewal. Your antivirus should have a place to type it in. If not, write or call the company. If they won't write back, chalk it up to tuition in the school of hard knocks. There are plenty of free antimalware programs around.

If you use Mac or Linux, you won't be needing it.

Both of those are scam programs. They do nothing for your computer whatsoever. I suggest you call your bank and try to get your money back.

I have an eee pc and it had me restart my computer to install updates and when it came back on I had a new program called Malware Protection on it. Now my computer won't open anything at all except...


To get into the Windows 2000 / XP, Vista or 7 safe mode, as the computer is booting press and hold your "F8 Key" which should bring up the "Windows Advanced Options Menu" as shown below. Use your arrow keys to move to "Safe Mode" and press your Enter key.

Note: With some computers, if you press and hold a key as the computer is booting you will get a stuck key message. If this occurs, instead of pressing and holding the "F8 key", tap the "F8 key" continuously until you get the startup menu.

Victim of software counterfeiting, what should i do to resolve this problem?


Contact Microsoft. They will often provide discounted licences to people that demonstrate that they have paid for counterfeit software. If you can show them a receipt indicating that you paid money in good faith, they will licence your illegal copy for their lowest current fee. I think it is around $90 now, for a programme that usually costs $240. Good deal to get all the benefits of a legal copy.

I cant boot my computer!!! HELP ME!!!! Boot0: error


you may have to format the hard drive and load Windows again to restore the computer to it's default state.
In the Windows environment you are to "uninstall" all programs not delete because the DLL ( dynamic link library) are attached to the program therefore when the program is deleted then the windows cabinet files are deleted with then and then the computer has no instruction to the next step in this case the boot sector was erased.
the program you installed I suppose was a Macintosh emulator was attached to the boot sector of the hard drive and then was deleted with the program.
