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."

Tip

Add Remove Programs list is blank -- Windows 2000


Usually It happens due to some virus activity or any corruption in system files. So when you go to Add Remove Programmes, It shows nothing but a blank space.

· To resolve this issue with Internet Explorer 6.0 installed, repair Internet Explorer 6.0:
Click Start, and then click Run.
Paste the following command in the Open box, and then click OK:
rundll32 setupwbv.dll,IE6Maintenance "C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\Setup\SETUP.EXE" /g "C:\WINDOWS\IE Uninstall Log.Txt"
Because this command is case sensitive, you should copy the command, and then paste the command in the Open box.
· To resolve this issue with Internet Explorer 5.0 or 5.5 installed, repair Internet Explorer 5.0 or 5.5:
Click Start, and then click Run.
Paste the following command in the Open box, and then click OK:
rundll32 setupwbv.dll,IE5Maintenance "C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\Setup\SETUP.EXE" /g "C:\WINDOWS\IE Uninstall Log.Txt"
Because this command is case sensitive, you should copy the command, and then paste the command in the Open box.

If the Add/Remove Programs tool still does not function properly, shows no content, or if you want to try to fix this issue without upgrading to later versions of Internet Explorer, check the following registry keys to make sure that they contain entries:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\App Management\ARPCache
Note If the previous registry keys are blank, the Add/Remove Programs tool may also be blank.

Use the command line REGSVR32 [path\filename] to register each of the following files:

%systemroot%\System32\Appwiz.cpl
%systemroot%\System32\Mshtml.dll
%systemroot%\System32\Jscript.dll
%systemroot%\System32\Msi.dll
Program Files\Common Files\System\Ole DB\Oledb32.dll
Program Files\Common Files\System\Ado\Msado15.dll
%systemroot%\System32\Msdart32.dll [not registerable]
%systemroot%\System32\Mshtmled.dll
%systemroot%\System32\Mswstr10.dll [not registerable]


If the Add/Remove Programs tool displays incomplete information or is blank, verify the file dates. Where possible, register the following files:

%systemroot%\System32\Gdi32.dll [not registerable]
%systemroot%\System32\User32.dll [not registerable]
%systemroot%\System32\Msvcrt.dll [not registerable]

E640 REBOOT


Hi John,

I see you mentioned you update IE9 then you now get a blank screen...

If I may ask the blank screen showed up after the update or did it show up after restarting the computer?

If your getting a Blank screen when you boot into windows after the IE9 update, try rebooting then boot into Safemode.

Restart you computer then as soon as you see the Boot screen of you computer keep on Tapping f8 to get a list select safemode, then once it boots into safemode windows will load up in safemode on the issue and you can navigate arround to fix things that went wrong.

click on the Start Button on the lower left of the task bar then, click on Programs, select accessories then select system tools, look for system restore then select the option select a different restore point, on the window you may see a list of restore points hoping your system restore was turned on in the very beginning, once you have selected a restore point keep on clicking next then a warning will show just click next again then it will restart your computer.

System restore allows you to restore to a date where you had windows working fine without any problems so if you can get a restore point before updating IE9 then it is possible that you may be able to fix you windows back the way it was.

I hope that this will help,

Internet Explorer is not working. What I can do to get it back. I try different thing to get it back, but it was imposible. My son was plaing and delate internet explorer.


To reset Internet Explorer settings
  1. Close any Internet Explorer or Windows Explorer windows that are currently open.

  2. ?id=microsoft.windows.resources.shellexecutetopiciconClick to open Internet Explorer.

  3. Click the Tools button, and then click Internet Options.

  4. Click the Advanced tab, and then click Reset.

  5. Select the Delete personal settings check box if you would like to remove browsing history, search providers, Accelerators, home pages, and InPrivate Filtering data.

  6. In the Reset Internet Explorer Settings dialog box, click Reset.

  7. When Internet Explorer finishes restoring the settings, click Close, and then click OK.

  8. Close Internet Explorer.

    Your changes will take effect the next time you open Internet Explorer.

Notes
  • If you close all visible windows, but still get an error message when trying to reset, you might have programs running that are not visible. Restart Windows, open Internet Explorer, and try resetting again.

  • To back up your home page or home page set before resetting Internet Explorer defaults, see Back up your home page or home page tabs.

  • If any of the categories fail to reset, it is because Internet Explorer could not access a file or registry setting. This can be caused by insufficient security privileges, files or settings being used by another program, or low memory or high CPU usage. You can either continue to use Internet Explorer without restoring these settings, or restart your computer and try to reset again.

  • If you are using Internet Explorer on a server and have turned off Enhanced Security Configuration or hardening (stronger security settings for use on servers), reset will go to client-level security. You must reinstall hardening if you want the increased security level. For more information on Enhanced Security Configuration, see Enhanced Security Configuration for Internet Explorer online.

  • To re-enable add-ons, see Internet Explorer add-ons: frequently asked questions.

Blank screen, can only start programms by task manager


Try to boot Vista into Safe Mode. Tap the F8 Key right after you turn on the computer until you get the Advanced Boot Up Menu
and use the keyboard arrow keys to select Safe Mode. The next screen may ask you to select your operating systm. Select Vista, not the Recovery Console.

Does your task bar and icons appear in safe mode? If so, it might be one of your start up programs that is failing and causing explorer.exe to fail during normal boot-up into Windows and not allowing your taskbar and icons to appear. Click Start and type in msconfig and hit enter then click the Start Up tab and look at all the programs that start up when Vista is starting up. Do Not uncheck anything in the list that you do not recognize as you may uncheck drivers or Vista starting programs that you computer needs to start up Vista properly. Google anything you don't recognize and uncheck any Start Up programs you do not need to start when Vista boots up, like Quicktime player or Adobe Reader for example. (This would also help your boot up time into Vista)

Sounds like explorer.exe crashed. Try opening up the Task Manager again, and Click File > New Task and type in explorer.exe. See if the task bar and your desktop icons appear.

If they appear for a brief moment then disappear again, the Windows explorer.exe is corrupted. Explorer.exe will try to start and then fail again. You may need to use System Restore to bring your computer back to a date and time when the computer was working properly, before the Vista update.

When I am browsing, then close one window, the entire internet will shut down and a box opens that says Windows Internet Explorer has encountered a problem and needs to close.


I would do a System Restore from a restore point: (pick a date previous to you getting the IE error)

Through the All Programs menu:
1.
Click Start.
2.
Point to All Programs.
3.
Point to Accessories.
4.
Point to System Tools.
5.
Click System Restore.
6.
Follow the instructions on the wizard.
