Let the boot process continue for a while.. Maybe even an hour or so... Spybot will automatically start a new scan before boot, if it found items which it could not delete / remove in an active session . In some cases it is just a "wait" and give it time to complete it's process.

In many cases, if you see an occassional flash on the disk access, it is working.. Just be patient.

Hi ben1995reid,
Welcome to FixYa! How are you doing?
It is a software problem.
When did the problem start? Did it happen just recently?

Please try to do the following to resolve the problem:

1. Please try to boot your computer to safe mode. You can boot to safe mode by doing the following:

  • Turn off the computer. Turn on the computer then immediately start tapping the F8 key repeatedly.
Note:
You must press F8 before the Windows logo appears on the screen. If you press F8 after the Windows logo appears, the Advanced Boot Options menu does not appear on the screen. If you do not see the Advanced Boot Options menu, restart the computer, and then repeat this step until you see the menu on the screen.
  • Use the (Down Arrow) arrow key on the keyboard, scroll down to Safe Mode then pressEnter.
  • Login to your User Name.

2. Use System Restore to restore the computer's settings to an earlier date:
  • Navigate to the Start -> All Programs -> Accessories -> System Tools.
  • Click on the System Restore program icon.
  • Click Next > on the Restore system files and settings window.
  • Choose the restore point that you want to use.
Note: Check the Show more restore points checkbox to see more than the most recent restore points.
  • Click Next >.
  • Click Finish on the Confirm your restore point window to begin the System Restore.
Note: Windows will shut down to complete the System Restore.

My laptop won't start, stuck on black screen. i have been trying to start my gateway laptop andevery time the welcom finishs' running it defaults back to the black sreen. why is this?


This could mean that the copy of Windows installed in your computer is either corrupted or damage and reinstalling or repairing your Windows should fix the problem.
But try doing System Restore first on safe mode before doing a Windows reinstallation or repair to save you from loosing all you files in your computer.

To do system restore on safe mode:

1. Restart your computer and when the Dell Logo comes up and keep pressing F8 until an option shows
2. Use arrows to navigate then choose safe mode
3. Click start button then choose All programs or Program depending on the Windows installed in your computer
4. Click on System tools then choose System Restore
5. Follow the intructions on the System Restore windows on how to restore your machine back to a previous date before this issue happen.
6. Your computer will automatically restart after restore is done

If the safe mode doesnt work then your last option is to reinstall or repair your windows:

1. Press F1 to go to BIOS then change boot priority - make sure your DVD drive is the first boot
2. When your done changing boot sequence press F10 to save and exit
3. Insert you Windows CD and and a meesage will appear on a black scrren "Press and key to continue" press any key. Windows file will load and options for Repair or Installation will appear
4. Choose 1 of the option then follow the instruction (Installing a fresh copy of windows is recommended)

Hope this information will be helpful. Thank you for using FIXYA.

On My Aspire One when I turn it on it seems to want to turn on but then it takes me to the screen that sais "We apologize but Windows did not start successfully." and it gives me the option to...


It sounds like your install has become corrupted if safe mode and last known good do not work.

You may need to restore the netbook to factory settings, doing this will wipe off any data you have saved on the netbook.

Install the battery and connect the AC adapter to your Acer Aspire One.

Turn the system on by pressing the "Power" button.

Press and hold the "Alt" key immediately after pressing the "Power" button and tap the "F10" button.

Continue holding the "Alt" button and tapping the "F10" button until a screen saying "Acer eRecovery" appears.

You will see three options:
Restore system to factory default
Restore system from CD/DVD (grayed out if an optical drive is not connected
Exit

Click on "Restore system to factory default." A notice will appear informing you that all data on the "C:" drive will be overwritten and reminding you to plug in the AC cord.

Click "OK" to begin the recovery. A message will appear stating once again that all data on your hard drive will be overwritten.

Click "OK" to acknowledge the message. The screen will show you a progress bar as the recovery progresses. Wait until the recovery is complete. The time will vary depending upon the individual netbook. A message will appear when the recovery is finished

Click "OK" to restart the computer. The netbook will reboot. Windows will load, asking you to wait. A "Welcome to Microsoft Windows" screen will eventually appear with background music playing. It is time to help Windows set up your computer.

Click "Next" to continue. You will be asked to input your system settings. Enter your region, language, and keyboard type, then click "Next." The next window is for your time zone.

Select your time zone and, if desired, place a check in the box beside "Automatically adjust clock for daylight savings time," then click "Next." The EULA (End User License Agreement) will appear next.

Click "Yes, I accept" on both places to accept all points of the EULA, then click "Next."

Place a dot in the radio button beside "Help protect my PC by turning on Automatic Updates now" and click "Next."

Click "Skip" to avoid setting up network information at this time.

Click "Skip" to avoid setting up an Internet connection at this time.

Click "No, not at this time" to avoid registering with Microsoft at this point, then click "Next".

Click "Skip" to avoid inputting registration information now.

Put your name and the names of others who will use the computer here, one per line. Click "Next." Microsoft will thank you for setting up your computer. Click "Finish" to begin using your newly restored computer.

Windows XP won't load past the 'user account welcome screen'.


If you boot into safe mode* and have same problem, you might be missing a file called "userinit.exe."
It's located in the /WINDOWS/SYSTEM32 subdirectory. You can copy it from another xp computer
(suggest matching updated pro vs home files). Use your harddrive as a slave on another computer
if necessary.

*safe mode: Restart your computer and start pressing the F8 key on your keyboard during boot up.

Then you gotta ask: how did that file get deleted? It's a popular file to attack by malware authors and
some anti-virus software will delete it as part of an infection cleansing.
