This indicate a problem on the boot files...so ..if you can open it in safe mode..try to get to the system restore..in all programs accessories..system tools ..system restore...and restore it to an earlier date when you know it booted like it should..If this will not work you will have to insert a disk with the operation system and either make a repair of the system or reinstall it from scratch ...
If you have a recovery disk or partition ..just boot from it and make a recovery ..

My laptop window vista is having problem to open the window suddenly Iam unable open my computer or any window prog So pls suggest me the error


While the computer is powering press F8 in 1 seconds intervals until you get the Advanced boot menu.
Select Safe Mode with Networking and press enter
Once it is booted up try to navigate around. If it is running at normal speeds, I would say your computer is infested with viruses If it is still running really slow and won't open anything I would say you need to wipe out the computer and re-install windows. Most likely your operating system is corrupted You can try the following to fix operating system problems without a re-install
Open a command prompt (Windows Key, then type cmd ) Type chkdsk /f hit enter, it will tell you the drive is locked do you want to run on next boot. Press Y and enter.
Type sfc /SCANNOW then hit enter. Let it run though and then reboot your computer for the chkdsk to run.
If it is still really slow in safe mode then it's a re-install of windows

IF NOT SLOW IN SAFE MODE (Do this) You can try and clean up viruses in safe mode with the following free programs Run the Full Scan and remove any viruses/spyware you find MalwareBytes (http://www.malwarebytes.org/) SpyBot (http://www.safer-networking.org/en/home/index.html) Spyware Doctor (http://www.pctools.com/compare/protection/?ref=spyware_doctor_antivirus_compare_winningchallenger&gclid=CN2rsMjwlasCFQJOgwodCUtevw)
Are just a few.
I typically run through about 12 different programs on an infected computer. Then you would want to purchase some good antivirus These are the Top 3 http://www.webroot.com/En_US/index.html http://usa.kaspersky.com/ http://www.bitdefender.com/
