Re: window xp

The problem may be due to curruption of the system file.
One of the solution is :- Go to Start > Run and type 'sfc /scannow' (without the quotes). This will run the System File Checker that will replace any damaged or corrupted system files.
If it is not solved yet, try with a updated antivirus for a trojan or spyware.

Laptop restarts over and over

Is it Win XP or Vista? hit F8 and see if you can get into Safe Mode, if you can goto start , run and type msconfig, disable all and reboot.

If you cant get into to safe mode, hit F8 when computer turns on and scroll to Last Known Good Configuration. see if lets you in.
If you are running Win XP and none of that works. You will have to run your XP CD and do an OS repair, just load the XP CD at boot when setup starts hit ( Enter F8 then R) let it do its thing. Hope this helps Good Luck.

2.>> Stop wscript.exe process if available by highlighting the process name and clicking End Process.
3.>> Then terminate explorer.exe process.
4. >>In Task Manager, click on File -> New Task (Run…).
5.>> Type “cmd” (without quotes) into the Open text box and click OK.
6>>. Type the following command one by one followed by hitting Enter key:

del c:\autorun.* /f /s /q /a
del d:\autorun.* /f /s /q /a
del e:\autorun.* /f /s /q /a

c, d, e each represents drive letters on Windows system. If there are more drives or partitions available, continue to command by altering to other drive letter. Note that you must also clean the autorun files from USB flash drive or portable hard disk as the external drive may also be infected.
7. In Task Manager, click on File -> New Task (Run…).
8. Type “regedit” (without quotes) into the Open text box and click OK.
9. Navigate to the following registry key:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon
10. Check if the value name and value data for the key is correct (the value data of userint.exe include the path which may be different than C drive, which is also valid, note also the comma which is also needed):

“Userinit”=”C:\WINDOWS\system32\userinit.exe,”(correct this)

If the value is incorrent, modify it to the valid value data.

Xp error message

Try the following:
  1. Click Start > Run.
  2. Type regedit
  3. Click OK.

    Note: If the registry editor fails to open the threat may have modified the registry to prevent access to the registry editor. Security Response has developed a tool to resolve this problem. Download and run this tool, and then continue with the removal.
  4. Navigate to and delete the following entries:

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run\"dc2k5" = "C:\WINDOWS\SVIQ.EXE"
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run\"Fun" = "C:\WINDOWS\system\Fun.exe"
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run\"dc" = "C:\WINDOWS\dc.exe"
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Windows\"run" = "C:\WINDOWS\system32\config\Win.exe"
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon\"Shell" = "Explorer.exe C:\WINDOWS\system32\WinSit.exe"
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Windows\"load" = "C:\WINDOWS\inf\Other.exe"
