Question about Toshiba Satellite P305D-S8828 Notebook PC
I didn't remember doing anything immoral or anything two weeks ago when my Toshiba laptop began startup in the Windows Boot Manager, black screen with three options: boot with "ramdisk" or "boot with an older verion of Windows" or (I think it was) "safe mode".
I had been having fits chasing what turned out to be a "redirecting" trojan that wouldn't allow me to do Windows updates or Avira antispyware updates. I couldn't even ask a question in the Windows support forum. I would get one of those IE "couldn't access this whatever" So when I found out the phone number for Windows I called to speak to a tech geek and was headed off at the pass by a recording that told me I had no chance of speaking to an earthling until I had given Windows Live OneCare a shot at fixing it.
I did the Onecare download and when I installed it the Onecare gestapo told me to uninstall any other security software I had installed. I didn't believe Bill Gates or his miinions were going to cost me the $30 I had just shelled out for the Avira Premium. Yep.... that's what I had to do.
I know, I'm taking too long... to make a long story less long, I eventually got fed up with all the problems Onecare caused and sneakily uninstalled it. I hadn't linked the black screen boot problem with OneCare but suddenly my laptop booted normally. Then I had other problems and had to do a system restore. The only choices I had were to select a time when I had Onecare installed. Guess what.... the boot problem was back, Onecare ruled me like a dictator and I'm afraid to try to uninstall it again. Onecare doesn't come with an uninstall exe so I had to have the staff sneak an uninstall to me on a special link.
Any ideas? Hello? You still awake? LOL.... sorry...
