Question about Computers & Internet
Every time I start my computer I am shown a pop up window. This window I am very familiar with, it always pops up during downloads of any kind. This program must have came in with another becaue I never would install this. Its called start help.exe I cant figure out how to remove this request. I have to say no every time I start my PC. I searched windows 7 for solutions but none exist. Any suggestions if there is no charge.
Since there is a very annoying Trojan/malware of the same name, I suggest you follow the instructions at this link below. Basically, it involves running a free cleaner program which I have become increasingly fond of called Adwcleaner. The page at "bleeping computer dot com" goes on to detail other things that will help clean up this problem. starthelp exe Virus Trojan Spyware and Malware Removal Logs . Good luck!

sounds like you'll need to reinstall the operating system, from the recovery cd...or use F8 for safe mode, and see if it's a virus issue

Assuming that the external hdd is physically working fine, everything is pointing to a damaged boot sector.
You can get back most (if not all) your data stored in your external drive with the help of an application called: Pc Inspector File recovery.
Its a freeware.
Here is the link: http://pcinspector.de/Sites/file_recovery/download.htm?language=1#
Simply install it on your C:\ drive, and follow the prompts.
Please let us know the outcome.

either an issue with the hard disk, or with your system. Make sure the hard disk has power on it and if you can, it would help to test it on another computer to confirm if it works. If you have ruled out the possibility that it is the hard disk, next is review if the hard disk has system requirements you need to meet. If the requirements are met by your XP SP2 machine, you may try updating the computer's system software/chipset drivers and a BIOS update may also be necessary.
