Do a SAFE BOOT (search Google on how to do this for your model) to start the computer with minimal drivers and running software.
Then, go to Start>Control Panel>Programs and Uninstall this program that is causing issues. You can also go to Start>Run>type msconfig>Startup tab>uncheck the box next to the software name. Then go to the Boot tab to uncheck SAFE MODE.

Reboot into Normal mode, and run anti-virus and malware scans.

Blue screen with msdc, cant get it out or off the sceen whats wrong


This is normal. The camera is simply acknowledging the connection to the computer. You control the download from the computer.

You might want to consider NOT connecting your camera to your computer. The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.


Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program such as Picasa.

I have a s12/72 spanish version and my chid has put the child lock on and i cant take it off


I got the same problem with the s12 72 greek version.The machine locks with the menu button down pressed for 5 seconds. But it can lock with each program seperately. So if you locked the machine with rinse for example you must select rinse and press menu down for 5 secs.If you cant remember the last program you lock it with test everything and each time keep the menu down.

Child lock light stays on - & cant start mc programmes


HI I KNOW IT SOUNDS DAFT BUT HAVE YOU TRIED SWITCHING THE CHILD LOCK OFF? I CANT REMEMBER EXACTLY WHICH BUTTONS IT IS ON YOUR MODEL BUT YOU USUALLY HAVE TO PRESS 2 BUTTONS AT THE SAME TIME (& SOMETIMES HOLDING THEM FOR A COUPLE OF SECONDS) RATHER THAN JUST 1 TO SWITCH THE CHILD LOCK ON/OFF. IF YOU STILL HAVE THE INSTRUCTION MANUAL IT WILL TELL YOU WHICH BUTTONS YOU PRESS TO SWITCH CHILD LOCK ON/OFF HOPE THIS HELPS!
