Two possible solutions, depending on how far you want to go and your level of expertise:
1. Format the entire hard drive and reinstall the OS. If you had backup of all your document, this will be painless. Otherwise, this solution is unacceptable for you.
2. If you still have access to the internet, do the following:

  • Download the latest version of ADWCLEANER.exe and run it. It will search your PC for any possible attackers. Then hit DELETE button and restart your PC.
  • Download, install and update a free Malwarebytes Anti-malware program. Perform quick, or full search (up to you) of your system. restart.

SOURCE: I have windows XP home edition. I then downloaded

If you have XP home running on your PC then you cannot be running XP Pro nor Windows NT. It is one or the other. XP home will update just as the others will as an operating system or are you trying to say that you downloaded software or drivers for connected hardware?.

If this is the case then you need not do anything, if it works don't try to fix it.

If this is not the case then please explain exactly what the problem is and we may then be able to help.

SOURCE: I am running Windows XP Sp3 and System Restore

If the safe mode doesn't work, try to restore your system using a third-party system restore software. I use it to remove virus, blue screen, and etc. It works good for me.

Depending on the desktop you could add a new hard drive and make it the OS/Boot drive with Win 7. Your old drive with the pictures on it will become a data drive. If you don't know how to make the new drive the boot drive or the desktop does not have room for a 2nd drive it might be a lot easier to take the old drive and put it in a USB external enclosure.

Malwarebytes is good cleanup utility.

Do not use IE, to many vulnerabilities, Chrome of Firefox is better..

My computer screen keeps going blue when i start it and saying a problem has been detected and widows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer please help


You may have a virus. You may have corrupted files? Start by trying a Boot in Safe Mode. If that works, while in Safe MOde, Go to Start - All Programs - Accessories - System Tools - System Restore.
Choose to restore to an earlier time. Pick a date a few days ago when you know it worked fine. Even a week or two ago is fine. Let it do its thing. When it restarts (automatic) hope fully it will be fine. Up date your anti virus and do a full system scan.

Good luck.

System restore won't work


Just a thought- go to My computer>click on view system information>system information box, click on system restore, and make sure box is unchecked.
If you have any anti-virus programs like Norton, Macafee or AVG, disable them if you can, as well as any non-Windows firewall programs.
If you can remember recently downloading any other program that might interfere with system restore- anti virus or otherwise- then delete or disable that too.
