For safe mode press F8 on boot up, it will provide you with several options. Choose Safe Mode or Last Known Working Condition or something like that.

I think the boot.ini on your system is already corrupted you may need to do a reapair on your OS.

By the way what Windows version are you running XP or Vista?

Hi

Try this solution.

Restart your computer and press F8 to run on safe mode. After that restart again your computer. Running your computer on safe mode will fix and correct some errors because of faulty installed drivers, multiple drivers installed with same drivers or faulty software installed in your computer.

Also, run disk defragment on your computer by going to start menu, choose accessories, choose system tools, choose disk defragment and after this, restart again and it will run faster other than before.

If still slower, just run the system restore to restore the previous setting of your computer. Go to accessories, choose system tools, choose system restore and choose the date your want to restore.

I hope it helps you.

Hi my computer has a bad virus that i cant get rid of. ive tried a lot of programs but my computer is still the same.


ave you done a full virus scan with up-to-date anti-virus software?

If you don't have any anti-virus software and you use the Internet, you REALLY need to get some! My preferred anti-virus package is Norton Anti-Virus but, if you want a free copy in a hurry, download AVG Anti-Virus from www.grisoft.com - that's also excellent smile.gif

I AM HAVING A SLOW LOADING OF WINDOWS XP SP 1. I AM POSITIVE THAT MY LAPTOP IS HAVING A VIRUS. HOW CAN I FORMAT THE HARD DISK DRIVE?


Put in your recovery disk and restart the computer a clean install of windows will format the hard drive automatically! If you don''t have the recovery disk you'll need a windows disk to do the same.
Do you have it set to FAT32 or NTFS? If it's FAT32 you can pop in a windows 98 rescue disk and restart the computer with CD support type in A: and enter then you type in like this A:\ format C: /s
and it will prompt you to carry on by selecting Y for yes hit enter and start formatting.
You then have to remove the floppy put in your windows disk or rescue disk(which has windows XP on it) and restart and select install at the following prompts etc
You can reboot to Safe mode alternatively(restart and hit F8 when POST messages are displayed) and scroll up to safe mode and enter. If you have an anti virus software program installed you can run a scan and remove any possible viruses that way or if you know what the virus is use the search function and find and delete the infected files!

Download and run the free version of MalwareBytes' Anti-Malware. Let it do a complete scan, which may take a while, and correct any problems it finds. This is a very effective tool against many of the viruses.

If you can reboot to Safe Mode and select "Last Known Good Configuration" it will be best but if you can't then you have to completely shut- down and reboot with your Restore or Windows CD and select the options to do a "Repair"

Black screen with mouse only


there are several things which might resolve your problem.

attempt to get into safe mode (with f 8 at boot), and check device manager for problem devices.

insert the vista disk and boot, and attempt to "repair" windows, the boot sector particularly. there is usually a "repair" utility on windows disks which allows you to fix problems without completely reinstalling windows.

your computer may be infected by a virus. if you can get into safe mode, try a virus scanner called "avast" if that doesnt work, try "malwarebytes" or "combofix". these can be found by doing a quick google searc, just make sure you download them from reputable sites. you may have to use a seperate comoputer to download the programs.

if you cannot get into safemode, try the same anti-virus software suites, from a different computer, with your hard drive installed in that system as a "secondary" drive. if this is a laptop hard drive, laptop to desktop hard drive adapters can be purchased for around $20.
