E-Machine Computer Virus????

I startup my pc. its running windows xp btw. it logs itself in. then a bubble pops up saying....."Runtime error '5': Invalid procedure call or argument." Nothing shows up no start menu none of my shortcuts. i cant use task manager. if i put a cd in drive it will continuously open when i attempt to close it. and if i do anything like try to bring up task manager it will restart on its own. if there is no solution but to erase entire hard drive and everything that would be no problem for me. if thats the only solution how do i go about doing so?

Nope..try starting into safe mode(F8) and then see what's up with virus check..you may need to do a system restore first..save the drive deal till the end.

and in the meantime, do you have a backup?

How can i log in my Delloptiplex 760 computer,when its auto logging off


If running XP

A log-on loop on your Windows XP computer is a difficult situation where the computer never completes its boot cycle, restarting intermittently ad nauseam.


This issue indicates a major problem with the boot functionality of your XP system.

Restore the computer to working order by utilizing the repair and restoration utility on your XP system disk.

Insert the XP disk into the computer.


Restart the computer.

Press any key when prompted to boot from the disk.

Press "Enter" at the first screen and "F8" at the license terms.


Highlight the drive containing XP and press "R," repairing the operating system boot files and removing the log-on loop.

or

Windows XP sometimes has a glitch when you are logging in to your user account in order to boot the operating system.

The glitch logs you in and then logs you off the account.


This problem is usually caused by one of the programs that load during the computer's start-up.

Fixing this issue is a matter of ensuring that whatever program is causing the problem doesn't start up as soon as you start your computer.

or


Power on the computer and allow it to get to the user logon page normally.

There is no need to start up the computer in "safe mode."


Click the user who is having the issue and type in the user's password if one is set up.

Press and hold the "shift" button on your computer keyboard as soon as you see the tool bar load up at the bottom of the screen but before any other program has a chance to do so.


This stops any "Startup" program from running and logging you off.


Right-click the "Start" button on the bottom left of your screen.


Select "Explore" from the menu that appears.


Double-click "Programs" from the list on the left side of the window that pops up.


Double-click "Startup."


Select all the files inside the "Startup" folder by dragging a box over them.


Right-click anywhere on the selected files.


Select "Delete" to delete those files.


Note that deleting the programs from the "Startup" folder does not delete them from your computer.


All this does is make it so that these programs no longer start as your computer is starting so that any error in the running of the programs doesn't interfere with logging in to your account.


Hope this helps

Method 1: Clean Boot with Only MoSearch loadTOCNode(2, 'resolution'); The Mosearch.exe (Microsoft Office Search Service) and Mosdmn.exe (Microsoft Office 10 Search Filter Daemon) Startup items may be conflicting with some other program (or programs) running in the background.

  3. On the General tab, click Selective startup.
  4. On the Startup tab, click to clear all check boxes except for MoSearch.

  6. If the error message can be reproduced, repeat the preceding steps. In step 3, also click to clear the Process System.ini file and Process Win.ini file check boxes.

  3. On the Startup tab, click to select one of the check boxes.

Runtime error 216


Hi there
your computer is infected with a SubSeven Trojan virus.
Don't bother using Norton as its ****!
I recommend you download "Spybot search and destroy" its a free program and is very good at locating these type of viruses, install the program and run it, also do a Microsoft update to get the patch for Internet explorer security issues

Good luck

Wallpaper but no desktop icons on a MS6188 system


Reloading windows
bronstab virus might have corrupted the file "eksplorasi" or maybe the file is itself the virus


now if that is the case the Virus might have made an entry in the startup and as the file has been deleted the windows startup could not find the file hence the error

what you must try
is
1)

when you press ctrl +alt + del
go to files ->run
i guess you know that much now try entering into
msconfig and goto the startup tab to determine any malware at start up

2)also go to services and then click "hide microsoft" after that in the remaining one again do a similar check

3)restart your computer after that if still your explorer is not opening
not that is where i can really not suggest much
but what you can do is go to windows task scheduler and then make schedule to open windows explorer at each "logon"
:)
at least then your explorer will open everytime you log on

pls do not forget to rate the solution

RUNTIME ERROR


you will need to repair windows as there is a system error. Change the first boot device in the bios F2 or Del on boot up to your cdrom save and exit and then insert the cd before you re boot. Allow the cd to install the installation files, but when prompted instead of pressing enter to install windows, press 'R' to repair instead, at which point your C: drive will be shown, press 'Y' to answer yes to the c drive that needs to be repaired and press enter and allow a system repair, no docs or files will be lost as you are only repairing not formatting and installing.
