How to make windows installer work in safe mode


Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} Windows Installer will not work under Safe Mode, this means that programs cannot be installed or uninstalled in safe mode without giving a specific command using msiexec in command prompt.

To make Windows Installer work under safe mode, you need to create a registry entry for every type of safe mode you are logged in to.
  1. Safe Mode.
    Type this in a command prompt:
REG ADD "HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control
\SafeBoot\Minimal\MSIServer" /VE /T REG_SZ /F /D "Service"
and then net start msiserver This will start the Windows Installer Service.
  1. Safe Mode with Network
REG ADD "HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control
\SafeBoot\Network\MSIServer" /VE /T REG_SZ /F /D "Service"
and followed by net start msiserver This will start the Windows Installer Service.

How to open a forget password and username on password


Step 1: Enter Safe Mode


a) Start or re-start your computer.


b) Before the Windows 7 loading screen appears, Press 'F8? to enter Advanced Boot Options.


c) Use arrows to choose 'Safe Mode' when you can see the Advanced Boot Options screen.


d) Press 'Enter' and wait for Windows 7 files to load.


e) Log on with an administrator account when you can see the log on screen


Note: Well, when you are presented with the Advanced Boot Options screen, there are 3 types of Safe Mode. They are the Safe Mode, Safe Mode with Networking and Safe Mode with Command Prompt, and the 3 options are all available for you. Here above we take Safe Mode as an example, but if you choose Safe Mode with Command Prompt, you'll need to input related to command prompt to reset the password.


Step 2: Reset the forgotten Windows login password in Windows 7


Now you could diagnose and solve some serious computer problems in the safe mode and reset the forgotten Windows login password in Windows 7 as follows:


1. Click 'Start' button, input 'lusrmgr.msc' into the Search box and press 'Enter'.


2. In the 'Local Users and Groups screen', click 'Users'.


3. Right-click the account that you need to reset the password for, and then click 'Set Password'.


4. Type and confirm the new password, click 'OK'. (You can go to 'Local Users and Groups' screen by right-clicking 'Computer' to select 'Manage' on desktop.)


Step 3: Log on your password protected PC again with the new password since you have successfully performed Windows password reset for Windows 7.

Windows XP problem. How to remove a program that is in start up.


Log into Windows Safe Mode. To get to safe mode reboot your computer and start pressing the F8 key repeatedly until the Safe Mode options screen appears. You want Safe Mode which is the first option, not Safe Mode with Networking.
If any user id’s show up select the Administrator, if not don’t worry about it. Once safe mode is up Click on My Computer and open your C: drive. Click on Tools/Folder Options/View. Then click on Show Hidden Files and Folders.
Green AV is normally located by navigating to the following directories: C:\Program Files\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\GAV\gav.exe
Delete gav.exe which is the executable module for the virus
Delete mgrdll.exe this is the messenger for gav that keeps sending you the messges and popups
Delete the folder GAV (just hit your back arrow one time to get back to folder Application Data then you will be able to see and delete folder GAV
Right Click on your Recycle Bin and select Empty Recycle Bin or Double Click on your Recycle Bin and select Empty Recycle Bin
Now just reboot your machine!

Windows is activated but will not log me on


There seems to be nothing else we can do other than reformatting your hard drive and reinstalling your operating system since you cannot go to safe mode and do system restore. The problem is with the OS so it needs to be reinstalled. Hope this helps. Thank you.
