First thing to do is try to install and scan your pc with an antivirus program...if you have one already...update your antivirus program. restart your laptop and press F8 to enter safe mode, in safemode, start a full scan.

when finished, reboot back to normal mode then download CCleaner. Scan you laptop using CCleaner to remove the temp files and fix registry issues, you can also disable the startup programs that you do not need to start automatically in CCleaner.

CCleaner

In Addition, you could also install a antispyware program like Ad-Aware just to make sure.

Hope this helps.

How can i turn on my laptop in normal mode


Normally your can just turn on or restart your computer and it will automatically start to normal mode, however if someone set your computer to start to safemode it will stay that way, to undo that setting follow this steps:
Windows XP: Click start, click run type msconfig and click ok. On the system configuration window click on Boot tab and on the middle part uncheck safeboot then click apply, close and restart.
Windows Vista and Windows 7 Click start, on the search bar type msconfig and press enter. On the system configuration window click on Boot tab and on the middle part uncheck safeboot then click apply, close and restart.
If this didn't work there's a problem with the system file of your computer I suggest you ran a scan using an antivirus software because this kind of problem is usually being cause by a virus infection.

16 bit MS-DOS Subsystem C:\ WINDOWS\system 32\wuauclt.exe The NTVDM CPU has encountered an illegal instruction. CS:Oe57 IP:fff8 OP:fe ff 57 Oe fe Choose 'close' to terminate the application repeated...


wuauclt.exe stays resident in the background and checks Microsoft website for the operating system updates.

Originally, wuauclt.exe is a legitimate system process that is located at C:\Windows\System32, but there are cases when wuauclt.exe is actually a disguised virus, Trojan or a worm.

If you find wuauclt.exe stored anywhere different from its original location, you should get really suspicious and scan your system for possible threats.

Search for the file and see if you have this in more than one location.
Your system might be infected.

My Vaio is very very slow in starting up after about 5 minutes a window comes up " the application (ISBMgr.exe) can not be initialized 0x0000022", click ok" - after a couple of minutes the same message...


Reinstall your operating system and you will get rid of all these unpleasant malware. Another short term sollution is to enter msconfig and uncheck the programs that are starting with your O.S. To do this press Win Key + R and then type msconfig. Go to the Startup tab and uncheck the programs that aren't necessary. Leave only the O.S. components. But for a safer solution, reinstall your operating system. From what you are saying you could have some viruses and malaware. If you need further assistance, just leave a comment. P.S. Here is a tips & trick that will help you after reinstalling your O.S.: http://www.fixya.com/support/r4213055-quickly_reinstall_operating_system Cheers

I have virus av.exe and cannot remove it


This trojan runs as a rootkit, so you won't see it when it's running. It is a single file in C:\Users\username\AppData\Local (Vista), or C:\Documents and Settings\username\Local Settings\AppData (XP), It is marked as a system file, so you'll need to use the Folder Options in the control panel, to unhide hidden and system files and folders. As I said, with the rootkit loaded, you still won't see it there until you unload it. It runs by changing the registry so that any .exe run, will instead load the trojan. Attempts to run Internet Explorer or Mozilla Firefox will also instead run it. If you delete the file, or your antivirus finds it and deletes it, the changes to the registry will mean that from then on, whenever you try to run a program, you'll get a windows message asking you to select the file you want to use to open the .exe. (if this is the case, you'll need to use regedit in safe mode with command prompt, or rename regedit.exe to regedit.com).

To defeat the trojan, you must undo the registry changes, then reboot to reveal the file, then delete it. Here's how.

Run regedit. The trojan will load and give you all the fake warnings hassle. Do Ctrl-Alt_Del, and find the process 'av.exe'. End the process. Now in the registry editor, search for 'av.exe'. You should find a section HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.exe, where the (Default) REG_SZ has been set to 'secfile'. Edit this back to 'exefile'. Keep searching and you'll find HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\secfile. Delete the whole secfile section. Keep searching - you'll find the odd line where it may be a recently 'searched for' item, where you can just delete the line, and you'll find it in a command line to run Internet Explorer. The full path to the trojan will be specified before the path to Internet Explorer. Edit this line to remove the path to the trojan, leaving just the path to Internet Explorer. A similar edit may be required for Mozilla Firefox. Find any other occurences of av.exe and deal with them in the same way.

Now, reboot the PC, and the trojan will not start up. Display system and hidden files, then go to the location of the trojan. Now you can see the little swine. Delete it, and empty the recycle bin.

Problem solved.

Enjoy!

MSCONFIG allows you to stop programs from starting up when you boot up your computer to windows. This is good cause it will allow your computer to run quicker and more efficient cause less memory will be used. Virus protection is important cause it protects your files and Operating System from corrupting on you due to infections from spyware, malware, trojans, viruses, etc. A good free one if you don't have Mcafee or Norton is AVG and its free on the internet from: free.avg.com

Everybody has different opinions on what anti-virus program is good so decide for yourself which way you want to go. Hope this helps.

My laptop (os windows xp) has been infected with iiiiii virus


iiiii is a virus program that transfers to the system through the USB devices. It keeps on hanging the OS at startup because it is pin at startup area of the OS.

Alternnatively, you can remove it by using a software that can bring out all the startup programs. The root of iiiiiiii.exe is in the C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\XP6880 9. You can simply locate the root and get it deleted completely. Hold shift before deleting. Then empty the recycle bin and restart.

Good Luck

Hello,
This seems to be a service on your computer failing to load during startup. You need to check your start-up programs for this file. To do this, click Start-->Run, type "msconfig". When the dialog windows opens, go to the "Startup" tab. Scroll through the list of applications started everytime you boot the computer. If you find "77301443.exe", disable it by unchecking the box next to its name, and click Ok.
You will be prompted to reboot your computer. 
However, before rebooting your computer. It would be a good idea to run any anti-virus or anti-spyware software, clean any viruses or spyware, and then reboot the computer.
When it reboots, check for the application error again. I hope this helps. Please let me know if you have any other questions.
Thank You, Raph30
