Actually you'll have to look in the autoexec.bat or config.sys file to see what command is telling the anti--virus program to run. Remove that command and your computer will start in Windows, not DOS

Lenovo ThinkCentre M52 Displays limited tray icons on startup.


I was going to say get to a the task manager by CTRL+ALT+DEL and in the upper left hand corner of the window click File then new task (RUN). Type in explorer.exe and hit ok. This normally brings back your task bar, start menu and desktop icons.

If you can't run it, then you definitely have a virus blocking it. Run a virus scan.

I brought a used campaq IA-1 and cant delete old users and add me


there is only one way to restore this system, you will have to take the hard drive out and hook it up into another desktop and install windows 98/me or 2k to it and then put the drive back into the compaq more than likely you will have to download drivers for it as well

I have a virus and stmanteec antivirus notification keeps popping up on my screen: What can I do??? Help Scan type: Auto-Protect Scan Event: Threat Found! Threat: Trojan.Zlob File: ...


If you have a virus you can not delete or if your system will not boot up correctly and you suspect a virus is the problem, a recommended solution is to start your computer in safe mode and run a virus scan. By running your computer in safe mode, non-essential processes do not start and non-core components are disabled. In other words, only the minimum necessary programs will load. Tough to remove viruses, spyware and other malware usually have no chance to run and disrupt your system and can more easily be removed.
**To run a virus scan in safe mode, you must have active anti virus software installed on your computer.
To run a virus scan in safe mode, follow these steps:
  1. If your computer is on, shut it down
  2. Power on your computer
  3. Immediately after you power on your computer, repeatedly press the [F8] key (about once per second)
  4. In the Windows Advanced Options Menu screen, use the arrows to select Safe Mode and presss [Enter]
  5. Select your current operating system and press [Enter]
  6. Select the user you would like to login under (if applicable)
  7. When your system finishes booting, click the Start button on your task bar
  8. Move your cursor over All Programs and navigate to your anti virus program
  9. Click on your antiv virus program to run it and follow the anti virus program’s normal steps to run a virus scan
  10. After the virus scan is complete, Delete all detected viruses
  11. Close out of your anti virus software
  12. Restart your computer (it should start in normal mode)
