Hey,

we have a few solutions

first lets check do you have the recover cd/dvd that came with the laptop? if not do you have a windows installation cd or dvd?

if you have one or the other you can use it to fix the computer by either restoring it to the originals or by installing windows again.

if you don't have either we can try fixing it. when you start up the computer before the windows loading screen come but after the initial text on black. keep tapping on f8 untill the advanced start up options come to your screen picture below:

Select safe mode or safe mode with networking and try staring up the computer.
try signing in, if it fails try again but instead of using your username use the Administrator username (may be diffrent on diffrent languages of windows versions) and try signing in.

if you still can't sign in to the computer. you have to get either a windows installation cd or a recovery cd that is ment for your laptop. Or you can take the laptop to a local professional who has the discs and can fix up your computer. you could fix it yourself if you just had the cd/dvd.

If you are able to sign in to the computer in safe mode, then press start- then run, then type in it msconfig
on msconfig see the start up page click on it

look for the button that says disable all. click on it. apply ok and close the window try to restart the computer normally and see if you can sign in. if you still can't sign in then theres still a problem and you need to get back into the safe mode double check that there is noting on the start up page of msconfig.

drop me a comment if after you have done all these steps the computer is still not working.

Thanks,
Ekse

Please run system restore to an early date and reinstall programme while other programmes are not running.

You might even need a lot of patience while rebooting the system and be sure you dont have another antivirus programme running wherein a clash in operation is possible.

Good luck dear.

I need to fully re-install Windows XP, no matter to lose any information on hard disk, I am using my Windows XP CD and the first device for boot is set to be the CD, but I get Boot Manager missing any way....


Step 1:
Open your anti-virus software program and run a full scan on your computer. Delete all quarantined and infected files when the scan is complete. Insert your Windows XP Install CD into your computer's CD/DVD-ROM drive. Restart your computer. Press the "R" button on your keyboard when the screen says "Welcome to Setup." Type in the admin password when prompted. Press "1" and then "Enter" to open the command prompt. Type "fixboot" into the command prompt. Press "Y" when a pop-up box appears, asking you for confirmation. Restart your computer and you should be taken to your desktop.

Your firewall or antivirus program is blocking the program from editing the registry if you want to use the program you need to disable your security program for the duration of the setup.

I have a virus and stmanteec antivirus notification keeps popping up on my screen: What can I do??? Help Scan type: Auto-Protect Scan Event: Threat Found! Threat: Trojan.Zlob File: ...


If you have a virus you can not delete or if your system will not boot up correctly and you suspect a virus is the problem, a recommended solution is to start your computer in safe mode and run a virus scan. By running your computer in safe mode, non-essential processes do not start and non-core components are disabled. In other words, only the minimum necessary programs will load. Tough to remove viruses, spyware and other malware usually have no chance to run and disrupt your system and can more easily be removed.
**To run a virus scan in safe mode, you must have active anti virus software installed on your computer.
To run a virus scan in safe mode, follow these steps:
  1. If your computer is on, shut it down
  2. Power on your computer
  3. Immediately after you power on your computer, repeatedly press the [F8] key (about once per second)
  4. In the Windows Advanced Options Menu screen, use the arrows to select Safe Mode and presss [Enter]
  5. Select your current operating system and press [Enter]
  6. Select the user you would like to login under (if applicable)
  7. When your system finishes booting, click the Start button on your task bar
  8. Move your cursor over All Programs and navigate to your anti virus program
  9. Click on your antiv virus program to run it and follow the anti virus program’s normal steps to run a virus scan
  10. After the virus scan is complete, Delete all detected viruses
  11. Close out of your anti virus software
  12. Restart your computer (it should start in normal mode)

Anti virus


Hi,

You of course can run multiple instances of anti-virus programs in your computer assuming that the anti-virus will allow competition in the resources. However. more often, this would only eat on your memory and processor so it is not advisable and there is no significant gain if using 2 or more anti virus bot several downside.

How to check what anti-virus is running, there are several ways:
1. Go Start, All Programs and check what anti virus has been installed;
2. Go to Control Panel, Add/Remove Program, the programs installed would be listed including your anti-virus;
3. Go to Start, Run, type "msconfig". next window go to Startup tab, it will show what programs are running upon Windows start up including your anti-virus.

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.
