The Last Known Good Configuration feature is a recovery option that you
can use to start your computer by using the most recent settings that
worked. The Last Known Good Configuration feature restores registry
information and driver settings that were in effect the last time the
computer started successfully.
To start your computer by using the Last Known Good Configuration feature, follow these steps:
Start your computer.
When you see the "Please select the operating system to start" message, press the F8 key.
When the Windows Advanced Options menu appears,
use the ARROW keys to select Last Known Good Configuration (your most
recent settings that worked), and then press ENTER.
If you are running other operating systems on your computer, use the ARROW keys to select Microsoft Windows XP, and then press ENTER.

Is this happening on any program you click on? If so it means a virus has changed your program file associations.
Click Start/Control Panel/Accessories/System Tools/System Restore When system restore opens select a date and time that was before this problem started happening. Let the system restore run to completion. Don't worry, System Restore does not destroy any of your data, documents, music, pictures or videos. System Recovery destroys everything and sets the computer back to when you first purchased it.
If the virus won't let you start system restore then turn off your computer and turn it back on, start hitting the F8 key repeatedly until you see SAFE MODE. Select the safe mode option and when it boots up click Start/Programs/Accessories/System Tools/System Restore and from there select a date and time that was before you started having the problem.
If you still have a problem after doing the restore, report back and there is about 30 different little programs you will have to run to get your program file associations set back to their default settings.
Did you try uninstalling the AVG?Next you can also try a system restore but make sure you take a backup of all your important data.Bcuz once you do a system restore then you'll loose all your data as it will be restored to an earlier time.
Anti-virus remover!Scan All Drives on the system PC, if messages keeps, "Quarantine"(checkmate the Message) working when he detect, Turn off System Recovery (My Computer>View Information>System Restore) Unchecked "Turn off System Restore on all Drives" > Restart the PC, in Start Press the key "F8" > "Safe Mode" wait..."Administrator">Message Appears: Click "Yes" then wait start...go to the anti-virus program and remover all the malicious from the "Quarantine" , when is over go back the way to turn, inside PC to the system restore and turn in on.
Before adding any ethernet card, try to restore your system by using system restore option available with windows to a date on which your system was perfectly working. If the your system works fine after that, then it is quite likely to have your system infected by malicious software or anti virus. Scan your system for virus. If the ethernet is not working then add a new card after disabling the on-board network card in the CMOS setup.
A clicking sound from the hard drive is the one sound you never want to hear. It means the drive has failed. If you need the data, you have no choice but to send it out for data recovery. On the second one, I would suspect a hardware problem, but in this case I would try to run the program "spinrite." If the computer can't detect the disk, I would install this disk as a second disk in another system. See if the other system can read it. If it, too, cannot detect it, then you've got another bad disk.
I'm a certified computer tech and have been doing this for years. system restore often causes more problems than it fixes. I recently ran into this issue on a friends computer. upon investigating his computer was infected with a nasty virus that infected all of his restore points. go to housecall.antiviurs.com or another security website and run a free online virus scan. check that first, if that isn't the problem try manually going into system restore and running it (start > all programs> Accessories > System Tools > system restore). it may be able to be fixed with the system restore. if not you may want to consider either taking it to a technician or backing up your files and reloading the comptuer.
Can you start it in safe mode? If so, try to do a system restore. Next do a start>run>sfc/scannow to see if there are any system files messed up. Can't start in safe mode? Then try to boot from the system disk and at the first prompt to do a repair type "R". Then run chkdsk /r to see if this solves the problem. This will fix bad files.
Still out of luck? Then you are looking probably in the right direction when you suspect the video card.
The system restore is blocked by a virus which causes problems to computers and confuses the system restore utility... Even if you have a super anti-virus... sometimes a new virus is the culprit. Or sometimes when you mistakenly allowed or ignored the warning message of your anti-virus. Copy all your files to another harddrive or to another partition if you have. Or burn them to a CD/DVD Then reinstall your computer. Good luck.
