All three of those sites have removal tools to get rid of this virus, I caution you though as it may affect the performance of your machine.

Toshiba satellite is stuck safe mode it's running Windows XP.I tried restart f8 start normal a black screen with bunch stuf& starts in safe mode. What's wrong how can I get it out of safe mode?


First you should really consider upgrading from Windows XP because it is no longer supported and the chances of your computer becoming infected are extremely high.

Pressing the F8 command will only access Windows RE where you can access startup repair safe mode etc.

If the computer is only allowing you to go into safe mode that is a good sign that something is severely wrong with your OS.

While in safe mode you should try and access system restore, but this will only work if 1) you have turned on system restore and 2) your system has a restore point to access.

Have you added any new hardware or programs to the computer? If yes, then the new addition may be the cause of this issue. You can use device manager to rollback any changes or access programs and features to delete any program changes.

Other then that, if none of the above suggestions work I would strongly suggest booting from the disk media to access Windows RE too recovery the computer or just to re-image the computer.

Hope that helps.

Userinit.exe application error


Hi again:

I would suggest that you may have a virus / spyware infection that has infected this windows file.

If you can boot into SAFE Mode ( reboot the computer) and when the screen goes to the black background with white writing start pushing F8 - keep doing so until you get a screen that gives you a list of things you can do -
ie:
restart windows normally
safe mode
safe mode w/networking

use the arrow keys on the keyboard and choose to boot into safe mode.- may take a couple of minutes

once there i would suggest running virus / antispyware scans as well as running a BOOT SCAN (a type of virus scan that scans the hard drive before it gets into windows)

NOTE on running virus/spyware scans - ALWAYS QUARANTINE the file infected - DO NOT DELETE - if you delete a critical windows system file you will cause windows to completely crash and in that instance you would have to reformat the hard drive and reinstall everything.

My Lenovo laptop starts up and shows Microsoft Windows starting to load but a few seconds later the screen goes black. The computer is on but it shows a black screen.


Try running in Safe mode.
Start the computer and hit the F8 key many times till you get Windows Advanced Option menu - Choose safe mode with or with out networking.

Does your computer seem to be working now? (safe mode is a limited use mode)
Chances are that your computer is infected and preventing normal use..

Restoring the computer would be the easiest way to fully clean out all infections and needed software corruptions. A full restore DELETES all DATA from the hard drive - Make sure you have all your data backed up. You can back up your DATA in side safe mode.

The information given relates to CORRUPTIBLE software like a virus....
Other issues may factor in to this but, not believed to be so.

Thank you for contacting Fixya.com.

You fell for malware that is sent to 'infect' unsuspecting users. Since it will not boot up now, the best is to wipe the disk and install from scratch. A recovery disk from the same type should work, but no guarantees.

May have encountered spyware


Download a program called MalwareBytes from www.downloads.com . You will need to download to another computer and copy the file to a USB or CD to put on your infected computer. Boot the infected computer into safe mode (press F8 repeatedly during the initial boot sequence of the computer). Select Safe Mode with Networking. Once in safe mode, install the MalwareBytes program and run a full scan. Have it remove all infected files. Reboot the computer normally, run a full scan again and then run a full virus scan. Let me know your results.

My computer reboots without warning while playing online videos or browsing the net. First it happens after working fine for some time and then it starts happening frequently. I have Windows XP media...


as my knowledge if the computer restarting by themselves always there are some error occured in this one area possibility :

1. error in software
2. error in hardware
3. error by virus infected
4. operating system issue

BUT :).. if u get this trouble after take some advennture in networld/network.. i suggest u computer ar sugessted with "blaster virus" the virus are written to reboot your computer without warning. Usually these viruses will make the computer reboot ever 5, 10, 15 or 30 minutes after the computer has booted. so the best way is update your security first
that is the first step

the second :i suggest u to run your computer in safe mode wait for several minutes if not reboot while running safe mode follow this step :
  1. From the desktop right-click on My Computer.
  2. Click the Properties option.
  3. In the System Properties window click the Advanced tab.
  4. In Advanced click the Settings button under Startup and Recovery.
  5. In the Startup and Recovery window uncheck the Automatically restart check box.
  6. Click Ok.
if still rebooting in safe mode there the issue is likely not software related but something else

the third :hardware devices that are not installed properly in the computer can also cause random reboots. Make sure all the cables and expansion cards are connected properly to the computer. The best way to determine this is to disconnect and reconnect all cables and expansion cards.

If after following each of the above recommendations your computer still continues to reboot it is likely that you are experiencing a Microsoft Windows operating system related issue that cannot be explained. To help make sure this is the case please try the below steps.
  1. Reboot the computer and enter CMOS setup as the computer is booting. If you are not familiar with how to enter CMOS please read through document CH000192.
  2. After you have loaded the computer in CMOS setup let the com sit
hope u luck

Hi
It seems that your computer is infected with a spyware. I will give you some steps to try and resolve this.

Step - ( This will remove spy wares from the computer )
Open this link and download Free superantispyware
http://www.superantispyware.com/
Scan your computer with this and clean it.

If it does not let you download this, you need to try this in the "Safe mode with Networking"

Step to go to "Safe mode with Networking"
Turn off the computer. As soon as you turn it on start tapping the key "F8" untill you get a black screen with options of "Safe mode" and "Safe mode with Networking", select the second one and than log on to the computer.

Your display will be big and distorted in safe mode, dont worry as its a diagnostics mode.
Once downloaded the software you might need to rung the software in normal mode as sometimes this software does not work in the safe mode.
To get back to the normal mode. Simply restart your computer.

Hope this should take care of your issue.
