When i restarted my computer lastnight it said the system not a running how do i trun that back on so i can be able to use it again

To resolve the problem, Start the Help and Support Center service and set it to Automatic. Follow these steps:
  • Click Start, Run and type Services.msc
  • Double-click Help and Support
  • Set the Startup type to Automatic
  • Start the Service
If the Help and Support service is missing in the Services.msc listing, this may be due to accidental deletion of a registry key. Download file and unzip the contents. Extract helpsvc.reg to the Desktop and double-click to merge the contents to the registry. This restores the Help and Support service entry.

How do i stop my windows intaller trying to install symantec antivirus msi file

Step 1:
Stop Windows Installer From Popping Up b> The older a computer gets, the more junk it accumulates. A great number of computers out there don't start up without a thousand things popping up demanding your attention. Windows Installer is one of the more notorious pop-up offenders for Microsoft users. Stopping these pop-ups can prove challenging, however, there is a way.

On your computer's desktop, click on the "Start" tab, typically located on the bottom left of the screen (in Vista it may be the Windows symbol rather than the word "Start"). Now locate and click the program titled "Run." Vista users can locate this program by typing "run" in the search box at the bottom of the "Start" menu. Once "Run" is open, type "MSCONFIG" into the empty box and click "OK." This will open the System Configuration Utility. With the System Configuration Utility open, select the tab labeled "Services." Scroll down the list of services (it may be beneficial to click the "service" column to sort the services alphabetically) until you find the "Windows Installer" program. Now click the check box beside the Windows Installer name and click the "Disable" button at the bottom of the System Configuration. Congratulations, you have stopped "Windows Installer" from popping up!

IT seems the starts.vbs file is located in your startup folder which forces it to run when windows is starting.
Kindly check the following folder:

If you are using Windows XP you need open "C:\Documents and Settings\%username%\Start Menu\Programs\Startup" and delete each and every file inside this folder.

If you are using you can find the startup folder here: C:\users\%username%\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup

You can type the above path in windows run box which you can access by pressing the Windows key + R (Windows key is located right at the bottom of your keyboard next to Alt.

Note: while typing the path replace "username" with your windows login name

Hope this will help you to resolve your issue.

Spooling subsystem error. I can print some things but some things get stuck and I cannot even delete them.

Click "start" and go to "Run"

Type "services.msc" at the prompt which will open the Services

Scroll down the alphabetical list in the right window pane until you come
to the entry with the name "Print Spooler"

Right-click this entry, then select "stop". This will stop the computer
running the process that holds your print queues.

Leaving that window open for now, click again on "Start", and then click
"My Computer" to open a Windows Explorer window.

We've stopped the queue service, now we just have to clear the jam that is already there. To do this we navigate to the print spool folder which is hiding within the Windows folders. Usually Windows is installed on C: drive, but you should be able to tell when the Explorer window opens which drive it is on.

The usual path to the spool folder is C:\WINDOWS\system32\spool\PRINTERS, but yours may be slightly different. Your windows drive may have another name for instance, but this would be uncommon. So click on your Windows drive (usually C), then double-click on the Windows folder, and then find the System32 folder and double-click on that. Windows may warn you that you are about to view system files, but click "View files anyway" message and search out the "spool folder". Within the Spool folder is your Printers folder, and you should open that.

Delete every file within this folder to empty the jammed print queue (pressing the "ctrl" and "a" keys will select all files and then you can just hit "delete").

Close the explorer window now that we have emptied the cleared spool files and return to your Services window. We must re-start the Printer spooler service, and do so by right-clicking the Print Spooler entry and selecting "Start" from the list. Close the services window and try printing again.

Freezes after few minutes

It is also important to remove the suspicious applications and programs in the computer to avoid Windows freezing. In this type of infection not only your Windows registry gets corrupted and needs massive repair but also there is virus based penetration in the Windows set up. In this situation it is recommended to conduct a virus scan as well.However, if your Windows freezes up, the best solution is to repair the computer registry.use registry cleaner reg in out

Help and support not opening

This will be a virus or hard drive problem. Run you anti virus to see if it finds anything that may be eating up your system. If doesn't find anything, then try a system repair with your recovery or operating system disc, this will fix the missing or corrupt files. If you have any issues during or after the repair then you can assume that the hard drive is going out. More that likely a sector is going bad.
