Win xp on boot up goes to blue screen quickly then reboots


It sounds like a driver is causing the problem or a new software install, turn the PC on and when you hear the beep press the F8 key, you should get a start menu, select safe mode, if this gets you in use system restore to take it back to a date it worked.

Computer will not boot


Switch ON the PC, boot the PC in 'Safe Mode' by continuously tapping F8 button after you switch On until you get the Safe Mode Option.

Let windows boot in Safe Mode and log in to windows.

Go to 'Start'--->Programs--->Accessories--->System Tools--->Click 'System Restore'


A 'System Restore' window will appear.

Here you will have to check "Restore computer to an earlier time' and click Next


Now you will find one Month Calendar window with Dates below, go to the previous month by clicking the '<' sign in the upper left hand corner of the Month Calendar and select any date that you see in Bold.


Note: It is better if you could remember from which date you are facing the issue, try to select a date prior to that date.


The detail of that particular date should show "System Checkpoint" and time on the right hand side box. Select that date.


Now, Click on Next and System Restore will start and windows will take a reboot.

After reboot your problem should be resolved.

How to remove xp internet security 2012 malware disable access to internet and fake detected malware loads and runs a false scan.


Hi Welcome to Fixya!
Follow the steps below in manually removing XP Internet Security 2012. But before doing anything, I would advise you to backup your files first to avoid any data loss just incase you will accidentally delete some important system files on the computer especially on the registry.


1. You can try to change system date to 7 days in the future (doubleclick on the date in status bar). Reboot PC, then change date back.


2)Open Regedit by typing "regedit" on the Start>Run command.
3)Go to this key: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run.. Look for a 3-letter named item or anything that looks garbage and delete it
4)Type "msconfig" on the Start>Run command. It should open the System Configuration window. Do a clean boot by clicking on Startup, then click disable all, then click Apply.
4a)Click on Services tab, put a check on Hide all Microsoft services, click Disable All, then click OK. The computer will now prompt for a restart, so go ahead and restart the computer.
5)Once you are back into Windows, download Malwarebytes and install it. Do a full scan for it to cleanup all the remaining infection.
5a)If Malwarebytes cannot be installed in normal mode, reboot the computer to Safemode with Networking and try it there.

Hope this would be a big help!

I could not save the system time & date. The time & date remains till there system is not rebooted. After reboot it changes time again


The most possible cause for that is the cmos battery at the mainboard. Open the case and try to locate a round small battery like this
0a76ded.jpg
Remove it and using this as a sample buy a new one (it's about 2-5Euros cost). Repalce with the new one and you are ready. After changing the battery a good advice is to get into the bios settings and check them, because sometimes are resetting at default after changing the battery.

In case of a problem or clarification, don't hesitate to post me a reply.
If you are satisfied, rate my solution with the "flags".
