1) if you are using genuine version of windows,
Contact Microsoft helpdesk onlite. site www.microsoft.com
2) If you have pirated copy, login using SAFE-MODE.
copy your important documents to a new drive and reinstall Windows XP. There is no other option other that this if the copy is pirated one.

Restore point


Using System Restore to reverse system changes in Windows 7 usually takes several minutes Here's How:
  1. Navigate to the Start -> All Programs -> Accessories -> System Tools program group.
  2. Click on the System Restore program icon.
  3. Click Next > on the Restore system files and settings window.
  4. Choose the restore point that you want to use. Note: Check the Show more restore points checkbox to see more than the most recent restore points.
    Note: Any restore points that you created, scheduled restore points that Windows 7 created, and those created automatically during the installation of certain programs will be listed here. You can not use System Restore to undo Windows 7 changes to a date that a restore point does not exist.
  5. Click Next >.
  6. Click Finish on the Confirm your restore point window to begin the System Restore.
    Note: Windows 7 will shut down to complete the System Restore so be sure to save any work you might have open in other programs before continuing.
    Important: System Restore will not revert any of your non-system files like documents, email, music, etc. to a previous state. These types files are completely unaffected by System Restore. If your intention with this tool was to recover a deleted non-system file, try using a file recovery program instead of System Restore.
  7. Click Yes to the Once started, System Restore cannot be interrupted. Do you want to continue? dialog box.
  8. System Restore will now restore Windows 7 to the state that was recorded in the restore point you chose in Step 4.
    Note: The System Restore process could take several minutes as you see the "Please wait while your Windows files and settings are being restored" message. Your computer will then reboot as normal when complete.
  9. Immediately after logging in to Windows 7 after the reboot, you should see a message that System Restore completed successfully.
  10. Click Close.
  11. Check to see if whatever Windows 7 problem you were troubleshooting has been corrected by this System Restore.
    If the problem still persists, you can repeat the steps above and choose another restore point if one is available.
    If this restoration caused a problem, you can always undo this particular System Restore.

Uninstalling problem of antivirus software


First.. install a different antivirus program while you are fixing this installation. Try microsoft security essentials or AVG.
Then.
Check your program files folder for any mention of Avast, and delete it.
Run a search for avast and delete anything you find.
Download a registry cleaner, I use CC Cleaner.
Run the cleaner and remove all the files it finds, run the registry cleaner and let it delete all the problems it finds .
IF you want to try with avast again, uninstall the other antivirus program you may have installed. then try with the Avast again

I have 10 not 9 i i install the program and now my computer wont do anything the screen is black i tired the f8 but that didnt work either


As soon as your computer boots press and hold F8 Key to start it in Safe Mode or in Last Known Good Configuration.
I recommend you to start in a Safe Mode. Assuming you are running windows 7, click on "Start" Menu and type "System Restore".
Follow the screen and choose a date before you started installing your new software. After finishing wizard it will reboot and should work normally. However you need to reinstall the software because it might not be there after restore.

WARNING:- You might loose all the new data or files you created on or after that date, therefore before starting "System Restore" get the backup of all date you have created on and after the date.

Perform a System Restore to restore the Computer when it was working normally.

Check this link to perform the System Restore operation:

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/306084


Or

Click on Start -> All Programs -> Accessories -> System Tools -> System Restore -> Select the Restore date -> OK to perform the System Restore.

NOTE: The System Restore procedure will restore the Registry and other settings back to the date and time selected. No data will be lost. Saved documents and e-mail will not be affected by performing a System Restore. Any Hardware or Software that has been installed after the date of the restore point will need to be reinstalled.


Also scan your Computer for any virus infection.


Good Luck!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hi,

If you are running XP or Vista, I would run a system restore. Go into start all programs, accessories, system tools, system restore and choose a date prior to the day you installed nero.

Did you notice that the computer started freezing after you have installed any software or any type of hardware to the computer. If yes, then uinstall the software or remove the hardware and the drivers and check.

You may also try to do a system restore prior to the date you started having problems with the computer.

If not, then back up all you data and reinstall the OS.
