Hi Doug, Please try to boot your pc in safemode. To get in safe please press F8 and hode while booting your computer. If it will boot to your desktop. Its like your driver was corrupted. Try to uninstall your drivers and try to boot again. If your problem still persist its like your windows system files was corrupted. You can try to fix it by booting to your windows installation cd, you have options their to repair your windows. Let me know if its your problem still unsolved. Goodluck
Let it be a lesson how not to run computer without protection, your computer is infected with rahul malware/virus...
Please follow this advice:
1. switch computer off 2. boot computer in safe mode (tapping f8 during boot up will get you there) as an administrator with network connection 3. go to this site and run they free online scanner:
4. still in safe mode download and install ccleaner 5. run ccleaner, as last run registry ccleaner 6. reboot computer as "normal" 7. do yourself a favour and buy nod32 antivirus, install it and allow it to protect you... 8. download from Microsoft they free Malicious Software Removal Tool and run it as well
If above did not remove all traces of rahul, please follow that advice for manual removal:
1. click on any folder on the desktop 2. select any folder and click "tools" or "properties", you did not stated which windows you run, cannot provide exact instructions 3. select "folder options" 4 select "view" 5. select "hidden files and folders" 6. tick "show hidden files and folders" 7. remove tick from "hide extensions of known file types"
8. remove tick from "hide protected operating system files" 9. search for any file with "*rahul*.*" in title (that includes file mentioned by you in the problem question)
10. delete these files, if files "refuse" deletion, click on they properties, one by one, unselect tick from "read only", click "apply" and then delete 11. remove file "autorun.inf" 12. re-boot with full shut down in safe mode (step 1 and 2 of first part) and run ccleaner again including as last registry ccleaner
Hope this will solve your problem, and buy this antivirus... If problem still persist, do not hesitate to call me back on this thread, if succesfull please leave note.
That's because "not booting" only relates to the hard drive after you have eliminated the power cord, power supply, motherboard, memory and CPU of the computer. Eliminate those 5 things and in the process you will have found your answer.
First of all remove ant cd from drive when booting up uinless you are using a bootable windows disk. if the problem still persist when then computer starts booting up keep pressing f8 until you get the choice to go in to safe mode. Once in safe mode choose the option when prompted go to system restore points and restore the computer to a date availabe wich is before the date of the problems.
Could be a few different possibilities-
Power Supply failing
first thing i would do is to try booting the computer up into safe mode with networking. to do this:
Shut off your computer and turn it back on- immediately start pressing the F8 key repeatidly until you get an advance boot menu- then go to safe mode with networking and press enter on your keyboard- See if Windows operates normally while in safe mode- If so then issue is probably a Virus.
