Question about Microsoft Windows XP Professional
Am working on XP Pro and for some reason, the seacrh option is not working. When I click for the option, I get a blank screen first, followed by the screen (when tried twice or more) but with all fields blank and buttons missing in empty fields. I wish I could send you the screen shot. Else, the machine is working fine, except that it takes too long time to load programmes at first time. I tried to repair windows booting with my cd, but the repair is not working either. After I press 'R' following the earlier steps while trying to repir it from cd,, I get the black screen with C:\ WINDOWS and asking me which windows etc.... Any help?
Ok sounds like a hijack to me, do a malware and virus scan. Have you shared a doc. or submitted a word doc to any particular sight or taken a link from a site and out int o a word doc and saved it to your hard drive, if so delete it and then remove it from your recycle bin. My true guess is that it is a MS virus.
as you know some links try to hijack your browser to make yours use there site, happen a lot on game or betting sights, i.e. horse racing and fantasy football,baseball sights. and if you hear your cpu running in background when your doing absolutely nothing it is normall a dialler for a sight gathering info and racking up hits on there or affiliated sight. if any of this sound familiar to you run the scan and check your registry i will venture a guess you have them in your registry also .
Hope it helps

Create a Windows 7 System Repair Disc:
"This will show you how to create a Windows 7 system repair disc to use to boot to the system recovery options if you don't have a Windows installation disc, can't find your Windows installation disc, or can't access the recovery options provided by your computer manufacturer."
If you do not have access to either disc: Windows 7 - Repair Disc download
a) Insert the Windows 7 System Repair DVD or Installation DVD and reboot.
b) Select the correct keyboard input method and click 'Next'.
Note: If you are using the Windows7 Install DVD then at the 'Install Now' prompt (Do not pick the Install Now option) instead choose the 'Repair your computer' option located in the lower left of the dispay.
c) The System Repair tool will search for a valid operating system and will report that "Windows found problems with your computer's startup options.
Do you want to apply repairs and restart your computer?"
d) Click 'Repair and restart' and reboot again to the Windows 7 System Repair environment.
e) Click 'Next' at the keyboard selection prompt and when the 'System Recovery Options' screen appears verify that the "Use recovery tools that can help fix problems starting Windows" is selected.
Note that on your Dual Boot system there now should be only one operating system listed. Click the 'Next' button.
f) Now from the menu list select the 'Command Prompt' option.
g) At the DOS prompt type the following three commands:
bootrec.exe /fixboot (may return an 'Eliment not found' message)
h) Close the command prompt window and click the 'Startup Repair' option.
i) The repair process may take some time, so wait until the process completes at which point you will see two messages "Windows cannot repair this computer automatically" and "Startup Repair cannot repair this computer automatically".
These messages are the result of the radical changes made by removing the other drive. Ignore the Send/Don't send options.
J) Close this message window by clicking on the X in the upper right corner of the Send/Don't send window.
Next click on the 'View advanced options for system recovery and support' option and from the main menu once again click 'Startup Repair'.
