Question about Microsoft Windows XP Professional With Servise Pack 2 (e8503040) for PC
After downloading and installing (or at least attempting to) new anti-virus software (not-free ware but something I bought) and restarting - I am not able to get Windows to come up.
The windows splash screen comes up the background is displayed but the task bar and none of the icons are displayed. I am able to open task manager and I see that explorer.exe is not running. If I attempt to start it (start new task) - it states that no problem is associated with it.
If I reboot in safe mode with command prompt (because all other safe mode and last good configuration act just like booting normally) - nothing happens when I run explorer.exe If I try to run System Restore from there (c:/windows/System32/restore) - I get a blank dialog. If I attempt to run msconfig.exe - the dialog comes up but nothing happens with I select Launch System Restore.
I have tried to boot from CD - it ignore it and just launches window's normally. I have tried to boot from usb flash drive - get non boot partition and have to cycle the system to get out of it. I don't have a floppy drive.
I tried reinstalling the OS (I have the CD that came with it) I can get the menu to come up - but when I attempt the install nothing happens.
Reinstalling would be my last chance.
Is there anything you can suggest I do?
In my openion, Virus doesn't want to be killed by anti-virus :D You need to download DM2000 (disk manager 2000 of SeaGate) and run it in DOS mode to format Hard-Disk.
