Re: only runs in safe mode
Startup in Safe Mode (hehe sorry)
Goto START- RUN
Type msconfig press enter
Select the third tab at the top (Startup)
Click the word Manufacturer, it will sort out the list by who wrote the software.
Remove the ticks from all boxes that are NOT Microsoft as the manufacturer. This includes adobe, and unknown and anything else.
Click APPLY then OK
You will get a box asking you to restart, select yes.
This time try to boot normally.
If you get through, then the box will pop back up, repeat the procedure above, but now put the ticks back into boxes you believe you can trust such as Adobe. Do one or two at a time so you can narrow down what may have been causing the problem.

It seems that you have a virus and it is running at boot. first try to boot in safe mode and see if the computer stay up. "Restart... hold the f8 key down until you see the boot option menu and select: "Safe Mode with Networking"If your pc still shut off and freezes then is not a virus and it is a hardware issue, possibly power issue or heating issue with the CPU.If it is ok in safe mode, then you need to remove the virus in safe mode. Download antivirus program that support safe mode operation.after successful removal of the viruses, reboot in normal mode and edit your msconfig, to remove any running programs that might be viruses. If you continue to have a problem, I can log gin to your PC and fix it myself, just download teamviewer and contact meTony
Maybe a virus has hidden it. It seems like you are booting up ok and everything seems to be normal since you are able to run explorer. The drive is there otherwise you wouldn't be able to run explorer.
Try booting up in safe mode then checking explorer or click Start/My Computer to see if the drive is there.
Turn off your computer, then hit the power button to turn it on and immediately start hitting the F8 key repeatedly until you see Safe Mode. Select Safe Mode and let it boot up. Things will look different in safe mode. The desktop will be darker and the icons bigger, this is normal.
Sounds like your keyboard has been hijacked by a virus. Try booting into safe mode and see if the keyboard acts the same way. Turn off the computer, then hit the power button to turn itback on and immediately start hitting the F8 key repeatedly until you see SAFEMODE. Take the Safe Mode option and let it boot up. Safe Mode will lookdifferent to you, the screen will be darker and the icons bigger, this isnormal. If it is ok in safe mode then run your virus scan.
Will it start in SAFE mode? Reboot and press F8 before Windows loads. This will give a small menu about different SAFE modes and Normal mode. Select SAFE mode and allow system to start. If the system starts fine then you have corrupted drivers and/or a virus which is corrupting your drivers. Download AVGFREE.exe, MALWAREBYTES.exe and SUPERANTISPYWARE.exe and run these. Now goto START, Run and type SFC/scannow and have your original disks handy because any corrupted drivers will have to be replaced. Now try to reboot into NORMAL mode. If OK you're done. If not OK or even in SAFE mode all you see is the cursor then the laptop needs to go to a reputable repair person or check my website www.micromendllc.com
try to start it in safe mode, then you can run system restore back to see if this fixes it. when computer loads up and shows the first screen, then push f-8 before it fully loads, this will take you to the safe mode screen, choose safe mode, then when loaded run system restore back to where the problem was ok. if this does not work then I would restore windows from the backup cd. if using safe mode when rebooting, it will change back to normal.
hi, welcome to fixya,ok as u said that its been freezing up,and it is being freezing up all the time,what u have to have to do is that just run the scan of virus removal but u can log into the safe mode and then try and run virus scan and then try and turn on the computer and also try and do the msconfig and restart the computer from safe mode,it should work...goood luck...pls rate this solution....
Okay, easiest first. In Safe Mode, your sound won't work. Safe Mode means only enough drivers to make your PC more than a doorstop get loaded, so that's okay.
Second, if it boots to Safe Mode without difficulty, try running System Restore in System Tools. Go back to some date before when your issue started. That should get you going. Don't worry, your data files will not be affected in System Restore. I hope this helps.
