Windows wont boot


Hi Rajib Chakraborty,

When posting issues try to be a details as possible this help to solve the problem more quickly and you problem answered more quickly.

Below are some step you can take to try to boot into windows if this fail, please provide more details to problem you are having.

1. Boot from Last Known Good Configuration

If the PC is on first restart the computer by pressing[Ctrl][Alt][Delete].
When you see the message Please select the operating system to start or hear the single beep, press [F8] to display the Windows Advanced Options menu. Select the Last Known Good Configuration item from the menu and press [Enter].

2. Use System restore

To use System Restore, first restart the computer by pressing[Ctrl][Alt][Delete]. When you see the message Please select the operating system to start or hear the singlebeep, press [F8] to display the Windows Advanced Options menu. Now, select the Safe Mode item from the menu and press [Enter].
Once Windows XP boots into Safe mode, click the Start button, access the All Programs ' Accessories ' System Tools menu, and select System Restore. Because you're running in Safe mode, the only option on the opening screen of the System Restore wizard is Restore My Computer To An Earlier Time, and it's selected by default, so just click Next. Then, follow along with the wizard to select a restore point and begin the restoration procedure.

Windows security center can't be started and when i turn it on in the security center to automatic, it's solved but after a minute, it seems disabled agai. please help me! are this sort kind of viruses?


Windows security center monitors checks if you have a firewall and anti-virus solution and also checks if automatic updates are on. Below is a screen capture of what it should look like, if it is titled different or looks quite different except for options being off instead of on you have a bug.

I have removed plenty of bugs from computers with users who use lots of Facebook apps.

If your anti-virus software does not find anything try these steps.

Run system restore and pick a restore point before problem started.
If system not working (which is likely if you've got a bug) you will need to restart in "Safe mode" to do that keep hitting F8 when computer restarts

Once restored run windows update, update antivirus definitions (if you don't have one microsoft have a free one "microsoft security essentials") and then run the windows Malicious removal tool. To this go to start menu select run and enter "mrt" and hit enter do a full scan.

If security center still not working go to control panel - Administrative Tools > open services. Find the security center service double click to bring up properties check service status; If not "Started" then change startup type to manual then press start button and then exit out.

My windows display only wallpaper


What happens when you press the windows key at the bottom left of your keyboard?

What happens when you move your mouse to the bottom of the screeen?

If nothing, can you get to the task manager? Press Cttl-Alt-Delete and choose task manager

Under process close explorer.exe
Then under the Applications tab click new task
type in explorer.exe

When booting into Windows press the F8 key and select restore to last known good configuration.

If that does not fix it... then you need to renboot using your Windows XP Installation CD and select repair system

If this has been of help to you please remember to vote kindly.

How to fix windows xp look that shoud egzist in my sys. anymore,it only can wiew in classic windows mode


You want XP to look like when you first got it and not in classic mode, am I correct? If that is the case, do the following:

  • Right click on your desktop and select Properties
  • Go to Themes tab and select Windows XP and press Enter
That should bring you back your screen. If that did not help, then do the following:

  • Right click on my computer and select Properties
  • Click the Advanced tab
  • Select Visual Effects tab
  • Chose either Adjust for best appearance or you can let Windows decide what's best for your system.
Finally, if that does not work go into Control Panel --> select Administrative Tools --> Services. Look for Themes in Services to make sure that is is both set to Automatic and that the services is started.

Hi,
Try Scanning your Computer For Computer Viruses.
then re-install Windows XP.
Your files will remain intact, if you select to leave the hard-drive As it is ( rather Than Format it ) or setup on a different Partition.
Backup your Valuable Docs/Files First.
Windows re-installation will replace any Missing-deleted Corrupt Files.
hope This Helps you.

Windows XP - Where is


Hi Grumpa43,

None, on some install versions of XP, the Settings has been removed. If there is no Settings, just proceed to Control Panel.

Alternately, you can also go to the Display Properties by doing a right click on any clear area of your desktop and left click on the "Properties"

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Before booting shows 2 profile


You need to edit your boot.ini file Click on START, right click on MyComputer, click on properties. In the System Properties Window click on the Advanced tab at the top, then click on Settings under Startup and Recovery. Click on Edit to edit the startup options manually. it should open a notepad that looks similar to this: [boot loader] timeout=5 default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOW S [operating systems] multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Windo ws XP Media Center Edition" /fastdetect /NoExecute=OptOut Under the [Operating Systems] sections is where you will have multiple entries for profiles. Delete the entire entry for the profile you don't use. Save the file afterwards and that should do it. Good Computing!
