Boot to Safe Mode, by pressing F8 during boot. Then try disabling startup programs. Go to Start > Run (search in Win 7) and type MSConfig. In Startup tab, uncheck anything that you don't want Windows to load automatically. It will make Windows boot faster and use less resources while running. This just disables them in startup. Programs will still load, but when only you initiate.

Remove all USB attached devices like drives.
You may need to roll back system with System Restore. Under Safe Mode (press F8 during boot and choose Safe Mode).

Win 7 - Start > Search type System Restore.
XP - Is Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Restore. Now choose a date prior to problem. You may have to try a few dates.
Uninstall last program(s) that was installed, again in safe mode.

Start your PC and press F8 several times until the boot menu comes up. Then select "Safe Mode with Networking". Now get some or ALL of the FREE programs below.

Download, Install and Run Malwarebytes Anti-Malware:
When Installing choose the non-pro version.

Download, Unzip, Install and Run TDSSKiller:

Download, Install and Run Super Anti-Spyware:

If you have an outdated Anti-virus program then Download, Install and Run Avira Anti-Virus:
Make sure to select ALL of the "threat categories" when you install or configure Avira...

You should be in pretty good shape if you run and install all of these programs.

How do i get my computer to run in normal mode again? and how do I get rid of the google chrome because this problem didn't start until i downloaded it into my computer.

Once Safe Mode comes up, click Start/Programs/Accessories/System Tools/System Restore and select a Restore Point (date and time) that is before you downloaded and installed Google Chrome.

I seriously doubt that Google Chrome is your problem. Chrome is among the top tier as far as browsers go.

I think you've got a windows system file or boot file issue.

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.

Starting problem

Sounds like your boot files or operating system has a corrupt or missing file. You will need a system disc to fix it. Have you tried booting in SAFE Mode? Turn off the computer, then turn it back on and immediately hit the F8 key repeatedly. When you see the options screen take SAFE MODE. Once you get it to boot up click Start/Programs/Accessories/System Tools/System Restore.. Select a restore date that is before you started having problems and let it run. Sometimes the restore points get corrupt or missing. If unsuccessful, like I said before you'll need a system disc so that you can boot into the recovery console and type the command: chkdsk /r This will run for well over an hour so be patient. It does not destroy any data, documents, music, pictures, videos, programs, etc.

It freezes

I am assuming that you have current antivirus protection on your system and are reasonably sure that you don't have any virus infection on your computer. IF you are not sure of this, I would suggest a program called Malware bytes, which is free from If you can, start the computer in safe mode (tap the "F8" key when the computer first starts, select safe mode with networking from the list. Get the malwarebytes program, install it, update, and then run a full system scan. A good free antivirus program is call Microsoft Security Essentials, it's free, but I don't think you can install it in safe mode. You will need to restart the PC normally before you can install that one. A quick search should lead you to Microsoft's website for the installation file.

At this point if the scan didn't return anything interesting I would try to use system restore (All programs/accessories/system tools/system restore) and choose a restore date that is perhaps a week old.

If neither of these options helps, I would run some diagnostic tools on your hardware, such as the hard drive, memory, and CPU/mainboard. Since I am guessing this is a fairly new computer, and since this might be a bit daunting for the average user, post back if you want information on running hardware diagnostics.

Otherwise, I would suggest backing up your files, (pictures, music, etc.) and then do a system recovery back to factory specifications. In this situation it would erase the hard drive as part of the procedure, so make certain you save all personal stuff that you want to keep.

Most computers use a recovery partition instead of giving you a system disc, so you would need to watch for recovery options when you first start the computer. I think on HP/Compaq it uses F11 as the recovery key. Look for this message when the PC first starts up.

I have a virus and need to fix. 1. How do I

reboot the computer and tap the F8 every second or two to get to safe mode (click here for details).
Not sure what virus you have, but I just had to remove "Security Tools" from a pc. I booted into Safe mode and ran MalwareBytes.
If you don't have virus protection download and install Windows Defender and Avast - both are free.

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.
