In checking into your problem I ran across references to Lavasoft Adaware, were you running this program before you downloaded SP3?

The solution that is posted on the web requires uninstallation of the offending program and some editing to your registry to fix which can be found here. You should be able to uninstall the program and edit the registry on your machine as described in the previous link but be VERY careful when editing your registry, especially edits that require deletion.

Post back with your results.

I have a laptop compaq armada e500,but i forgot my admin possward.how can i reset it to gain access to my laptop?


Hello.

You can create from another computer and run a Password Reset disk.

Download and burn to CD. Copy/paste this link:
http://pogostick.net/~pnh/ntpasswd/cd080802.zip

Download this file and burn it to a CD.

Put into drive and turn on PC. Boot from your CD.

Follow instructions, choose the correct USER and BLANK out the password.

Make sure you say OK to write the data, and reboot.

The Administrator logon password will now be blank.

Note: Substitute a flash drive for CD, if your system doesn't have a CD drive.

Hope this helps.

Hi,

Based on your description, it would seem that Windows is looking for a program that is no longer there and either halts/freezes or does some other thing out of the ordinary.

Initially, suggestion/procedures are:
1. Boot in "Safe Mode", that is press F8 before Windows start to boot and arrow up to select, hit enter;
2. It may take some time but soon as Windows has booted in Safe Mode, go to "Start", click on "Run", in the next small windows, type "msconfig" less the quotes, hit enter;
3. In the msconfig window, un-check everything you feel would not be needed. They maybe updates and autochecks. Normally, what is only important is your anti-virus. Or you can try unchecking everything, restart Windows and see what programs does not run or if any glitch(es). Thereafter, you can F8 again an check to restore the missing programs.

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.

Turn off and on the power button by hand and press keys:
Ctrl+Alt in two finger and repeatedly hit the G key (if it's
not working try again by press them three the same time
down).

You will see the screen goes through some texts and
codes. And look at the bottom it say to hold down the F
key to uninstall Goback.

I held the F key for a while and let it go.

Turn the power button off by hand and back on again.( try
this method a couple of times)

If that doesn't work then try this link

Compaq e500 boot up problem


If it were my laptop here is what I would do: 1. Install a new hard drive. 2. Install the operating system. 3. After an anti-virus program was installed and updated, I would connect the old hard drive to the laptop using one of those external USB hard drive adapter cables. 4. If the old drive proves to be readable, copy documents/photos/bookmarks to the new hard drive. Hope this helps.
