You might want to print this out:

1) Turn off your laptop.

2) Press the "on" button on your laptop, and *immediately* start tapping on the F8 key on your keyboard. This should bring up a black screen with white text on it.

NOTE: You may get a message saying "keyboard error, press F1 to continue." If this happens, press F1 and then keep tapping on the F8 key.

NOTE: If the Windows screen comes up, turn off the computer and try again until you get to a black screen with different startup choices on it.

3) Once you have reached the startup choices screen, use the arrow keys on your keyboard to highlight "safe mode." Press the Enter key. If you are asked to choose your operating system, just press Enter again.

This will start a lot of text scrolling on your screen. Just be patient. When it stops, you will see a login screen. Log in under your name (sometimes this is "owner").

4) You will now be logged in to you computer in Safe Mode. A message will pop up asking if you want to use Safe Mode or System Restore. Click on System Restore.

5) You should now have the option to undo your last System Restore. Choose this option and follow the instructions on your screen to get back to where you were before you tried to restore your laptop.

If you need further help after that, please reply with the name and model number of your laptop. For example, "Dell Inspiron 530," or "Compaq Presario 3000." Also let me know what version of Windows you are using, for example "XP" or "Vista."

How to Restore Disabled Folder Pane in Windows Explorer


Problem:
When you open Windows Explorer, the left hand Folders pane is disabled or gray or blank and the folder tree on left is not available.

Cause:
There may be an error in the registry. A required system file is missing or an incorrect version.

Solutions:
Close Windows Explorer.
Start the Registry Editor (click Start, Run, type regedit and click OK).

Expand HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main.
In the right-hand pane, locate the value named ExplorerBar. If present, delete it.
Restart Windows Explorer. If this does not resolve the issue,
The correct solution depends on the version of Internet Explorer that is installed on the computer.Internet Explorer 5.5 or lower
The preferred solution for computers with Internet Explorer 5.5 or lower is to upgrade to the latest version of Internet Explorer.
If this is not possible:
Open the folder C:\Windows\System. Check that the file browseui.dll is present. If it is not present, restore this file.
Internet Explorer 6
Open the folder C:\Windows\System. Check that the file shdocvw.dll is present. If it is not present, restore this file.
Open a command prompt.
Enter the command cd \Windows\System
Verify that the command prompt shows C:\Windows\System.

Enter the command regsvr32 /i shdocvw.dll.
Enter the command regsvr32 /i browseui.dll.

A message will appear confirming the successful registration of the files.

Now restart the sytem and confirm the problem is solved.

Internet explorer will not open


try to do system restore 2 - 3 days from the time you first experience the problem.

to do system restore ( for windows xp) click start, click all programs, click accessories, click system tools and click system restore. click next and after that you will be able to see a calendar with dates that is bold form, it means that those bold dates are your usable restore points and choose the restore point 2 - 3days from the time you first experience the problem then click next or restore. after that the computer will process the system restore and will restart automatically, if the system restore is successful click the finish button if not just click ok and try another restore point.

---------------------------------

if that doesnt work try to go to safemode w/ networking, at that mode try to use your internet explorer.

to go to safemode w/ networking shutdown the computer completely. turn it on again after 10 - 20 secs, as soon as you see the dell screen immediately tap the " F8 " key continuously. if that is successful you be in the windows advance menu option screen. use your up and down arrow key in your keyboard to navigate, choose the safemode w/ networking and hit enter twice. log in to your account or name ( not the administrator ) just to check if you are in the safemode w/ networking, there will be safemode word in each corner of your screen and the desktop background is black.

if you are using windows xp and you are internet explorer 8, try to uninstall the internet explorer 8.

to uninstall the internet explorer 8, follow the instructions below
- click start
- click control panel
- click add/remove programs
- navigate and look for the internet explorer 8, click it then click remove and restart the computer after.

Windows xp dilemma?


Go to http://housecall.trendmicro.com/ and run a scan of your computer.

If after that you are still getting "weird" stuff, back up your important files and run your recovery program. (Not restore.) I have found that restore seldom works with a lot of malware.
