The best thing to do is to completely wipe your computer clean and reinstall Windows. But back up all of your files first.

SOURCE: Dell Vostro will not boot up

During startup, just before the Windows splash screen appears, you should be able to hit the F8 key for a list of startup options. It looks from your post as if you know how to do this.

One of those choices should be to disable automatic restart on system failure. (or words very similar to that.) Use this choice to get into safe mode if you can, or into regualar windows.

Once there, go to the system restore feature and restore to a date when everything worked.

This error message is a message pointing to a piece of software (as opposed to hardware, as so many of these messages are).

The next best fix is to reinstall the OS from the ground up. this may be a major hassle, depending on the data you have on that hard drive.

Good luck

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..

Not sure the connection between changing broadband providers and passwords.....

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.

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.
