Are you able to start the computer in SAFE MODE? To do that, start tapping the F8 key as soon as you turn on the computer. A startup menu will be displayed. Highlight the top item, Safe Mode, and press <enter>. It will take a little while to load. You will eventually see a window indicating that you are in Safe Mode. Read the message. It should tell you that you can cancel and then run system restore. Do that and restore the computer to a date before the problem began.

Good luck, and please let me know how it works out for you.

Try booting into safemode, press F8 during bootup. Then you can try either using a System Restore from windows or you can try to finish uninstalling mcafee and / or Norton. You should definately give AVG Free edition a shot. It's awesome and better yet, FREE!!!!

My computer keeps randomly switching off (power) when I log back into windows 7 I am given a temporary login which does not allow me to access files?

Clarification Questions:
1. Does it switch off by itself?
2. Are you able to bypass the log on screen?
3. Did you happen to see the desktop screen where it has Start Button, your wallpaper and all?

My notebook has fixed wallpaper.when i want to change my wallpaper there is no change in wallpaper . i cant understand whats the problem of my notebook.when i click the mouse right key there is no option...

Switch On your PC/ Laptop and log in to windows.

Go to 'Start'--->Programs--->Accessories--->System Tools--->Click 'System Restore'

A 'System Restore' window will appear.

Here you will have to check "Restore computer to an earlier time' and click Next

Now you will find one Month Calendar window with Dates below, go to the previous month by clicking the '<' sign in the upper left hand corner of the Month Calendar and select any date that you see in Bold.

Note: It is better if you could remember from which date you are facing the issue, try to select a date prior to that date.

The detail of that particular date should show "System Checkpoint" and time on the right hand side box. Select that date.

Now, Click on Next and System Restore will start and windows will take a reboot.

After reboot your problem should be resolved.

I cant set a desktop backround for the hp mini laptop

You have windows 7 starter or vista starter i am guessing , which means there is no option for changing the background, it has been disabled.

It can be enabled though through various hacks
click on this
Stardock MyColors

download it and To use it, find a jpg wallpaper you like, then run Starter Wallpaper Changer as administrator (right click onb the file and click run as administrator). Select your jpg file, and change. Then log off, and log back in. Simple!

My Computer Keeps Loging Me Off,It Shows My Wallpaper For Maybe 5 secs,And Then The Next Thing You Know I'm Right Back At The Log on To Windows Page.I've Also Tried To Log on As A Administrator It's Not...

If you are using Windows XP, see if you can go to the system restore :

START --> Programs or All Programs --> Accessories --> System Tools --> and when ever you noticed this problem started... see if you can revert back to the date just before this problem started to occur.
do not worry - all your files should remain there even though you revert back to a time that is earlier. The only thing is that anything from that point till today's current date that you have installed would be lost.

Will not save

Are you logging in as a different user ? Goto START then CONTROL PANEL then USER ACCOUNTS. If you are the only user of the computer, then you can delete all users except administrator. You then can reboot and windows should log you in as admin only. Just make sure you have the proper password. Please note that you can only delete use accounts if you have that privilege. If you don't then you need to goto START, then LOG OFF. Then you can log in a admin but again, you need the admin password.

My samsung x05 wont open up windows when i put in my password

Can you log on in safe mode (hold F8 on bootup and select safe mode without networking)? Are you running Windows XP? You could try using system restore to go back to a time before the problem started. Is your hard drive volume name longer than 11 characters?
