540 wont boot up


The hard drive could be corrupt, this will cause the operating system to run the error checking. If you had a virus, and it infected any windows files, windows will check the files, but if it can\'t fix them, then it won;t run. You can try to enter safe mode, tapping F8 at boot, you should see a option to repair or restore. If not see if you can enter Safe Mode.

In safe mode you can go to start button, all programs, accessories, system tools, system restore.

You can also get a windows install disk, same version as you have, and put in the disk and hit F11, and boot from the disk, and run a repair from it.


You really should go to the website Avira, and download the rescue disk, burn it to a CD. This will run a virus scan of the hard drive before windows in DOS.
If there is a virus, it will kill it. But there is a chance it can\'t clean the virus and windows won\'t start.

The other option is to just erase the hard drive, not format, erase it with a program like Active kill disk. Then reinstall windows, all the drivers.

Mouse and keyboard not responding upon opening


LOL, good ole Norton. I hope you give Norton the boot once you get this fixed. Try booting up in Safe Mode and see if they work.

Go to www.google.com and in the search box type:"Download cnet Malwarebytes" (without the quotes). Download andinstall malwarebytes from the sites download.cnet/malwarebytes. When thesite opens up click on the Green Download button on the left. Do notclick the Red Download button, that's junk. When it finishes installing the GuiInterface will open up with an offer to Accept a Trial Version orDecline. CLICK DECLINE you want the totally free version. Run aQUICK SCAN. As it scans, if it finds infections the number will be inred. When it finishes scanning, click SHOW RESULTS. A notepad textdocument will open up showing you the results. You can close the textdocument and go back to the Gui Interface where you will click REMOVE SELECTEDRESULTS. The objects will already be selected for you. When itfinishes removing the objects click ok and it will sometimes reboot yourmachine.

If after all the above they both still do not function, lets restore your system back to a day before Norton notified you to turn the computer off.

Click Start/Programs/Accessories/System Tools/SystemRestore. Select a Restore Point (date and time) that is before youstarted having problems. System Restore does not delete you data, documentsmusic, pictures, videos or programs (unless the program was installed after therestore point you selected).

System Recovery loses all your data, documents, music, pictures, videos andprograms. It sets your system back to the time you first purchased it.

The problem is when click on application program it displays fatal error message of error opening driver file how can i fix this?


Is this happening on any program you click on? If so it means a virus has changed your program file associations.

Click Start/Control Panel/Accessories/System Tools/System Restore
When system restore opens select a date and time that was before this problem started happening. Let the system restore run to completion.
Don't worry, System Restore does not destroy any of your data, documents, music, pictures or videos. System Recovery destroys everything and sets the computer back to when you first purchased it.

If the virus won't let you start system restore then turn off your computer and turn it back on, start hitting the F8 key repeatedly until you see SAFE MODE. Select the safe mode option and when it boots up click Start/Programs/Accessories/System Tools/System Restore and from there select a date and time that was before you started having the problem.

If you still have a problem after doing the restore, report back and there is about 30 different little programs you will have to run to get your program file associations set back to their default settings.

@i bought in 2007 the e macines windows vista home premium, and i get an error code that claims i have a registry error, how can i fix this


You didn't give us much information, but I would start the computer in safe mode, if possible (hit F8 when the computer is starting up--keep tapping on it until you get the screen that lets you choose safe mode.)
Once the computer is running, do a system restore back a few days or so to when it was running OK.
Other suggestion, rather than safe mode on startup--choose "repair my computer."

System restore isnt restoring and rebooting into safe mode after


viruses often plant themselves firmly in the system restore files. They could also be preventing you from executing it. If you have "rogue programs" a system restore almost never works. You need to either clean the rogue programs in safe mode or backup your files and reinstall from scratch.

Error 32 message on pc when starting up


Sounds like possibly a corrupt file system or possibly a bad program install.

Try to boot to SAFE MODE. Restart your computer and press F8, select safe mode from the boot choices. If Windows loads try to use system restore or remove any program you may have installed just before this happend.

If it still won't start restart, press F8 and select the repair option then follow the onscreen prompts

Hope this helps.

there's a good chance you have a trijan, assuming you have an antivirs programme, run it in safe mode (F8 on startup and enter using safe mode), use the administrator account to log into windows, and then go to my computer icon, right click>properties>system restore tab, then turn off system restore.(viruses and trojans have a back up in system restore)

Run anti virus programme, restart pc then turn system restore back on

If you don't have an anti virus/spyware you can get a free download with free updates here, (choose the avg free download)

Restting a desktop due to virus or worm


You will have to try to run a removal program on your system before trying to restore it since the bug is probably saved and will reinstall over and over again.
Worst case, you may have to buy an antivirus package or risk losing any or all of your own work.
You absolutely need to install the 'Restricted Sites' list (available at several sites on line) to avoid ending up at dangerous sites such as the one that installed your current problem.
Windows Defender is free (from MS website) and along with an antivirus program will afford you further protection.

Running 'naked' is not an option.
