In safe mode, hit start button -run, and type "msconfig" in the box , hit enter.
the system configuration utility opens.
select startup tab at the top
when the startup screen opens, UNcheck all the boxes, press APPLY, then OK
the computer will prompt you to restart, when it restarts it will give you a message saying you have use the system configuration utility to change the way windows starts, this is normal. Check the box that say dont show this again and click OK.
doing this will keep the programs set to start when windows starts from starting untill you start them manually. If one of them is causing the freeze, this will make the system accessible.
Keep in mind, you may want to turn some of them back on after you get the computer going and when you do , turn them on one at a time and restart the computer after each change. this way you can identify which program is causing the problem.
Hope this helps. please repost if you have more questions

Another computer problem, my ******* downloaded a virus file called red cross, now i turn on my computer and all it says is red cross, how do i get rid of it? how to i get system restore when i cannot get...


You will have to login to the Safe mode option and run a spyware scan.

Kindly download and install Malware Bytes application which is a freeware and easily available in web. Once installed follow the steps below

Step 1: Shut down your PC completely.
Step 2: Turn on the Power button.
Step 3: As soon as you turn it on start hitting the F8 key on your keyboard until you get to a black screen called "Windows Advanced option". (If you don't get to that that screen but you end up reaching the blue screen than that means you have delayed in hitting the F8 key. start again from step 1.)
Step 4: As soon as you reach "Windows Advanced option" use your down arrow keys to choose an option called "Safe Mode".
Step 5: Select that and HIT ENTER.


One you are in the Safe Mode Run the Malware bytes scan (Quick Scan)

Unplug all additional devices, printers, external drives, network cards, etc. If it won't boot into safe mode, you will need a windows disk. Load the windows disk, and if it's Vista or 7, get the advanced repair options, and do a system restore. If it's XP, just do the computer repair. Windows vista also has a startup repair you can run from the Windows disk. We need to know the operating system to help you

Keeps turning off


Sounds like a hardware failure. Possilbly the motherboard, more than likely, the power supply.
But then - maybe neither.
Shut it off completely, once you restart, start hitting the F8 key ( once a second ) until you see the " Safe Mode" choices screen. Drop down and select the " Last known Good Configuration" option and hit enter.
If this doesnt work, try the same proceedures ( restart - F8 ) but this time select safe mode - at the top of the list.
If you sucessfully boot in safe mode, you have a system file problem that could be virus related, file table corruptions or registry problems or all combined.
