I cannot get my Gateway zx6961 out of safe mode, I've tried pressing f12 like it says,and going to c drive and doing a system scan on reboot but nothing I've done has worked yet. Need help,


Boot with a Win 7 disc, and choose Repair Your Computer. Then use Startup Repair option.


If this does not work, use the Re-install Windows option. This should install on top and not wipe out.


A free legal Windows image can be downloaded. Check the MS Product Key sticker for what version your system came with. You may have to use your key. IT MUST BE THE SAME VERSION

boot into safe mode with networking ,run malwarebytes and get that to remove the virus. if your disc isn't compatible you can try using neo-smart's recovery discs (http://neosmart.net/blog/2008/windows-vista-recovery-disc-download/)and burn that to disc and recover your vista that way

Windows Vista hangs at 3 of 3


You should be able to go to Add Remove and remove the specific update from the date it was loaded. You can also try a System Restore if you have one available for that date. The update did not install itself properly and keeps trying to do so.

Computer keeps rebooting into safe mode after trying to Restore


Hold down the number "0"key and continue to hold it down as you turn on the laptop. Keep holding the key and then if the laptop makes a sound let go and hopefully it will go into the internal factory restore for your laptop.

If it doesn't then you'll need to restore your laptop with your recovery disks.

Either way the hard drive needs to be wiped out in order to get rid of the virus since it did irrepairable damage to the operating system.

If you need help with restoring your laptop back to factory defaults, let me know and I'll walk you thru it.

Click on icons of user accounts on startup and Nothing Happens!


There are Spyware/malware resulting to this kind of behavior. You can remove your System Disk to another system that have antispiware up-to-date database. Kaspersky or AVG Internet Security are very effective.
Or else Im afraid you will need to format you OS drive to eradicate virus and malwares and reinstall the OS
