SOURCE: Won't load Desktop

Is this running XP? Does the computer shut down or just go back to the welcome screen and ask for your password again?

If it returns to the welcome screen (and it is XP) get the following two files from another xp machine and copy them to the windows\system32 folder.

userinit.exe wsaupdater.exe

Restart the computer and log back in.

Hope this helps

What do I do?!

Try this:

Reboot your PC into Safe Mode With Networking:

Start your computer in safe mode

Safe mode starts Windows with a limited set of files and drivers. Startup programs don't run in safe mode, and only the basic drivers needed to start Windows are installed. For more information, see What is safe mode?

Safe mode is useful for troubleshooting problems with programs and drivers that might not start correctly or that might prevent Windows from starting correctly. If a problem doesn't reappear when you start in safe mode, you can eliminate the default settings and basic device drivers as possible causes. If a recently installed program, device, or driver prevents Windows from running correctly, you can start your computer in safe mode and then remove the program that's causing the problem. For more information about troubleshooting problems in safe mode, see Diagnostic tools to use in safe mode.

  1. Remove all floppy disks, CDs, and DVDs from your computer, and then restart your computer.
    Click the Start button 4f6cbd09-148c-4dd8-b1f2-48f232a2fd33_818.jpg, click the arrow next to the Shut Down button eb058ccf-b21e-4dfe-9bb7-1ad6c83b705c_47.jpg, and then click Restart.

  2. Do one of the following:

    • If your computer has a single operating system installed, press and hold the F8 key as your computer restarts. You need to press F8 before the Windows logo appears. If the Windows logo appears, you'll need to try again by waiting until the Windows logon prompt appears, and then shutting down and restarting your computer.

    • If your computer has more than one operating system, use the arrow keys to highlight the operating system you want to start in safe mode, and then press F8.

  3. On the Advanced Boot Options screen, use the arrow keys to highlight the safe mode option you want, and then press Enter. For more information about options, see Advanced startup options (including safe mode).

  4. Log on to your computer with a user account that has administrator rights.

When your computer is in safe mode, you'll see the words Safe Mode in the corners of your monitor. To exit safe mode, restart your computer and let Windows start normally.

Once in Safe Mode With Networking

Click on the two links below and go to the download now tab. Save Rkill and Malwarebytes to the desktop.

First run Rkill then Malwarebytes.

Getting the most from your netbook

Over the past few years netbooks have been growing in their popularity due to their smaller size which makes them more portable than your standard laptop. Additionally they are substantially cheaper than your standard full size laptop, but because of their size they can be difficult to get used to and will take some changes to your standard uses to get the most from your new, or old netbook.

The first thing you have to keep in mind when it comes to using a netbook is that they don\'t have the same memory and RAM capacities that you will find in their full size counterparts. For this you will want to try to keep your installed programs to a minimum to reduce the use of system resources. Most netbooks come with software that you either don\'t need or don\'t want, to free up that space you will want to use an anti bloatware program to clean up the space so that you can use it for things you really want or need.
Screen real estate is the next big issue with using a netbook. On my 16 inch laptop I don\'t mind that a few pixels are being lost here and there due to the windows start menu, or the top ribbon in Microsoft office. But when it comes to using a screen that is 10 inch which is a significant step down you will find that all these small things will reduce the usable screen space down considerably. I have found myself using full screen mode more and more in all my programs. This frees up all that wasted space and makes you feel less like you\'re using a tiny screen.
From inside full screen mode you are going to want to learn keyboard shortcuts to get around your computer so that you don’t have to constantly switch back and forth. Due to the small size of the trackpad on a netbook the keyboard shortcuts will also make you more efficient getting around. There are even programs that make launching a program using just your keyboard a breeze.
The last thing you might want to consider is using a cloud storage system like Google drive or dropbox if you have a desktop at home and a netbook for travel. This will help you to make sure that you have all your important files wherever you are and if something should happen to your trusty netbook all is not lost.

I changed my local disk c name and now it cant open unless i run safe mode how can i fix this?

C is the root drive for your operating system so it is not advisable to change the drive letter of C drive. If you are still able to open your computer in Safe mood then I'll suggest you to change the Drive letter of C back to C in safe mood.
I hope you know how to change it back to normal position. If not then here the steps.
Open in safe mood
Right Click My computer-------Manage-------Disk Management------Right hand side at Bottom you'll see the Bar showing Size of the Partition in blue color ------Right Click the Drive C(which was C earlier)-------Change Drive Letter--------Change ------Here select C as your drive( remeber if you have Given C as a name to other drive then remove it before doing the above steps).
Hope this will work for you. If still you are facing problem then here is noe more way to restore drive back to normal position.
Start-----All Program----- Accessories------System tools-----System Restore----NEXT-----Check Show more restore Point(In Win 7)---now select the earlier date when your computer was fine and click next.
it'll restart your computer after restore is done.
Hope this will work for you. Good Luck

Try booting into safe mode by hitting the F8 key repeatedly as soon as you start your computer until the boot menu comes up. Then select "safe mode with networking".

If you can get a "safe mode" windows screen to load up then you can try some anti-malware and anti-virus apps like these:

Try malwarebytes anti-malware it's FREE and it's here:
Make sure to select the non-pro version.

Install and use TDSSKiller also (Also FREE):

You can try Superantispyware as well (Also FREE):

If you don't have a good anti-virus program already (and it sounds like you don't) you can use Avira. It's FREE as well, just make sure to configure it to "Select All" Threat categories. Here it is:

On a desktop computer? Sounds like either a virus has hijacked the keyboard or you need a new keyboard.

Turn off the computer then turn it back on and immediately start hitting the F8 key repeatedly until you see the SAFE MODE option. Select Safe Mode and let it boot up. When you see the desktop things will look bigger and darker in safe mode, that's normal. Try typing in Safe Mode and see if you still have the same problem, if not, it's a virus that you need to get rid of. Viruses cannot operate in Safe Mode most times because they need the internet to function. Safe Mode does not start the internet.

If Safe Mode lets you type, turn it off again then turn it back on and immediately hit the F8 key until you see the SAFE MODE option. This time select SAFE MODE WITH NETWORKING and let it boot up. Safe Mode With Networking will start the internet, but again, since it's Safe Mode most viruses can't function.

Open your internet browser and go to google at and in the search box type: "download cnet malwareytes" (without the quotes).
Look for the site download.cnet/malwarebytes to download and install. When you get to their site, the Download button for MalwareBytes is GREEN. Don't press the RED DOWNLOAD button, that's a download for some piece of junk.

Once you install malwarebytes at the very end click DECLINE to some offer. Then click the option to run a QUICK SCAN. As it scans if it finds infections the counter will turn red. Once it finishes scanning select the option to SHOW RESULTS. It will open up a note pad text document showing the results, you can close it because you want to only work with the GUI Interface. Now on the Gui Interface you should see an option to REMOVE SELECTED RESULTS. Click Remove Selected Results (they will already be selected for you). It will remove the infections and tell you to reboot the machine.

If after all this your keyboard doesn't work, you need a new one. Or if you are using a wireless keyboard, you might need to change the battery.

The problem is when click on application program it displays fatal error message of error opening driver file how can i fix this?

Is this happening on any program you click on? If so it means a virus has changed your program file associations.

Click Start/Control Panel/Accessories/System Tools/System Restore
When system restore opens select a date and time that was before this problem started happening. Let the system restore run to completion.
Don't worry, System Restore does not destroy any of your data, documents, music, pictures or videos. System Recovery destroys everything and sets the computer back to when you first purchased it.

If the virus won't let you start system restore then turn off your computer and turn it back on, start hitting the F8 key repeatedly until you see SAFE MODE. Select the safe mode option and when it boots up click Start/Programs/Accessories/System Tools/System Restore and from there select a date and time that was before you started having the problem.

If you still have a problem after doing the restore, report back and there is about 30 different little programs you will have to run to get your program file associations set back to their default settings.

How do I E-Mail Photos from my Olympus fe-290 on a dell laptop with winows vista. I do have the USB cord, thanks you

method 1 without photo management software:

To e-mail pictures from your camera with your laptop just hook up the camera to your laptop
and widows should come up with a menu asking you what you want to do with this device.
choose open folder to view files this should make the cameras media show up on the desktop.
You should also be able to see the media on the camera under my computer removable storage.
Or if it shows up here as a camera just right click and choose explore device. With most cameras
thier should be a folder called DCIM your pictures should be in this directory. Some cameras may
have subdirectories like video and thumnails in this directory also.

Once you've found the pictures, open you e-mail client or web mail and create a new e-mail. Open the attachment button. this should bring up a file manager that will allow you to find your pictures and select the ones you want to send. Some e-mail programs will have a white clipboard area beside the attachment button. If the e-mail client your using does, then you can just drag and drop
the pictures here to attach them to your e-mail

If your sending large picture files say 6.0mp and up then don't send more than one to 3 per e-mail
otherwise it can chog up your e-mail client for several minutes to hours.

If you want to send many pictures or video files to friends and family members you might consider
Dropbox. This is an online backup and storage program that will allow to share files online.

Method 2 with photo management:

Photo management software can take alot of the manual process of getting photos from your camera and storing them on your hard drive, fixing lighting, fixing red eye, fixing orientation,
tagging, organizing and other things you may want to do with your photos and automating the
process. Some of these have either the ability to create web albums or email pictures directly
from the photo management software. I personally like Picasa from Google

Not a driver, you have a corrupted program on the boot list. The safest way to solve this is to recover your files from Safe Mode and reinstall. Then reinstall your programs one at a time with reboots in between. If you feel something has changed in between reboots then the last program installed is bad, get rid of it.
