Safe Mode is only for trouble shooting. You have bigger problems if you can't run normally. You may try installing XP on top of it's self.

How to delete all the viruses from a dell laptop inspiron 15-3521


Start in SAFE MODE with NETWORKING (Click F8 when booting) and then go online to malwarebytes.org. Download their FREE application, update it and run a full scan. DO NOT enable the trial mode. Delete everything that Malwarebytes finds. Reboot into safe mode with networking again (F8) and go online to superantispyware.com and download their free program too - update and run a full scan in rescue mode. Delete everything it finds.

Reboot and run your virus scanner to see if anything is left on the hard drive. If you do not have a virus scanner, boot into safe mode with networking and download a free one - PANDA, AVG, COMODO, or whatever you prefer. Install it, update it and run a full scan.

Reboot.

Whenever I connect any removable drive automatically 4 shortcuts got created of control panel.


You have a virus on your PC. Unfortunately, once you have this virus, it usually does not help updating your anti virus and running a scan since the virus is running in the memory of the PC and every infected file the anti virus removes - the virus just puts back again. Try one of two things to remove the virus:

1] First update your anti virus (if you dont have an anti virus, download the free AVG Antivirus and install that and then update it. Click here to go to AVG's website. Once installed - Boot your pc into SAFE MODE. This is VERY important otherwise the virus will load into memory and it wont help running the anti virus to clean the system as the memory resident virus will just replace any infected file that is removed by the scan. To boot your PC into safe mode: Read this article: Click here.

Once you are in safe mode - Open the Anti-virus console and do a complete system scan.

2] Remove the infected hard drive from your PC and install it as a secondary drive in a clean, VIRUS PROTECTED PC!!! ... i.e .. any pc that has the latest anti-virus system installed and is up to date!. Once you have installed the infected drive in the protected PC as a secondary drive, run a scan on the infected drive and remove the virus.

Once you have removed the virus, also scan ANY USB devices on that PC, including any Cameras, cellphones, photo frames, etc that you might have plugged into the infected PC.

Good luck

Blue screen states updating windows on #9 out of 10 wont move just stuck there


You can try to force a shutdown, then reboot the machine and go into safe mode. If it boots in safe mode, let it stabilize for a few then reboot normally, If it acts up on you, try to run system restore and back the computer up a few days before the updates occured.

My son installed desktop maestro and his computer crashed


Try booting the PC, pressing th F8 key repeatedly as it trys to start.

You should see a page offering several modes of starting.

You can 1) Start in safe mode and assuming it work ok, use the control panel to uninstall the soft ware. Then reboot normally

or 2) Start in safe mode with networking, assuming this works, go to filehippo.com download and install a programme called Ccleaner. Using the "Startup" option, delete all programmes out of the start up menu execpt for antivirus and firewall programmes. Then reboot normally. If this doesn't work go to option 1.

Good Luck.
