If you have a recovery / restore CD you can do it from it. If not then you have to reinstall the windows as some system files have gone missing / infected with virus. While reinstalling the windows you may get an option to restore to a previous version. If so, then do it otherwise you have to reinstall the windows.

STOP: 0x0000000024 that is the error message I am receiving and can't seem to get past the screen that gives you the option to start in safe mode


if this happens when starting to boot to Windows, try last known-good config. When system is restarting, tap F8 a couple of times to get to the Advanced Options menu where Safe Mode is also listed. Select Last Known-Good Configuration if available and press Enter. If this does not work, try selecting Safe Mode. If you can get to Safe Mode, you can try System Restore to a previous restore point available when your system is working properly. If none of the things work, try Windows repair or reinstall. Make sure to try to backup data if you can before doing any reinstall or repair.

Keyboard wont work


Hi
You need not remove the batteries to turn off the system if its stuck. Just press and hold the power button for few min and the system will shut down.

It seems that its not a dreamweaver issue. The processor is heating because of some other reason.
check doing the same in the windows advance options i.e safe mode

When you start the computer start pressing the F8 key and select the windows advance option - Safe mode with networking

Check running the dreamweaver in the safe mode. If its running fine. There is a problem with the system.

If you still feel the problem is with the dreamweaver then you can also download the trial Ver for Dremweaver on line from - http://www.adobe.com/products/

hmmm its seems your first F8 takes you the boot menu option of BIOS not one of the windows.

So, after selecting first option again press F8 it will bring the windows boot menu options.

You can also do one thing but it might currept your operating system, even if you want to try just start booting and as well widows goin to load press and hold your power switch till you PC goes power off. So since windows did not load properly, when you will boot it automatically brigs the boot option screen to select Normal or Safe mode.


Thanks
