Hi there
The operating system is damaged beyond repair, the virus2009 is a Win32 trojan virus which has ravaged the windows directory folder, whatever you try to do now nothing will work, the only option you have now is to recover the system with a recovery or windows installation CD/DVD this does mean you will loose all the data from c drive unless you plug it up to another computer as a slave and recover your data before reinstall.


Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!!!!

Why cant I log into home page?


Normally what I do is this:
Turn on the computer, press F8 a few times
Click safe mode with command prompt.
Type in this into the black box: net user administrator /active:yes
Restart your computer
You will now see an administrator account
Click on it, windows will start normally.
Move over your documents from your old account
Once you have everything, delete your old user account
Voila.

Non functioning password


Try booting into Safe Mode and logging onto the Administrator profile. Have the pc turned off, turn it on and keep tapping the F8 key until you get a black screen with different bootup options. Choose "Safe Mode" and now you will see the hidden Administrator account. Log into that, click "Yes" on the pop-up window and then click "Start" and then "Control Pannel". Go to the User accounts. Locate the profile with the bad password and then click to "Remove Password". After that is done reboot the pc again normaly and now you can log into that profile you want.

On booting up my Inspiron mini 1012 netbook it keeps displaying 'the user profile service failed the logon' and 'user profile cannot be loaded'


Try logging in on the admin acct then delete and recreate the profile. If it doesn't work you can try switching off the comp then continously press F8 while turning on the comp and choose safe mode, then do a system restore.

Desktop won't load. It goes to the login screen and I type in my password, and it'll say "Welcome" with the spinning circle for a long time, then it'll load me onto a temporary profile. How do I...


go into control panel and create a new user (dont make it the same name as your old profile) then restart the pc and log into that new profile. To retrieve all your settings favourites etc you will need to say what version of windows you are using

Desktop icons do not load when pc is restarted - something in the regestry was accidentially deleted. How can this be fixed? System restore didn't work. Thanks!


mate I had the exact same problem as you on one of my mates pc's but i managed to get it fixed.

It was due to a virus which was hidden really well away in the system folder. I suded AVG Anti Virusmag-glass_10x10.gif, Spybot Search and Destroy and also Ad Aware.. which found the file.. and quarantined it.. then I just deleted the file thru explorer.. and ran these three again .... then restarted and hey presto all was ok !

My mate already had AV Software on his machine - he just hadnt updated it hence why this one got in, which effects the log in process.

hope this helps

Error code 80070005


ngkimfatt:
It could be Permissions problem, try assigning full admin rights to the person logging in on the local computer and then try logging into hotmail if this does not help:
You have to delete the local profile of the person who is trying to logon to hotmail. To delete the profile:
log on to the local computer as an administrator, (you might have to restart the machine before doing this to release any profiles).
-go to c drive, documents and settings, simply delete the profile of the person who is trying to log onto hotmail.
-Make another user or the same username, assign appropriate rights and log on, you will be fine.
NOTE: I FULLY RECOMMEND TO PLEASE BACKUP ANY IMPORTANT DATA FROM C DRIVE OF THAT PERSON'S PROFILE TO ANOTHER PLACE LIKE D DRIVE OR SOMEWHERE ELSE.
