Re: i have a blue screen saver cant get rid of it
Firstly download a good anti virus and spyware programme for example AVG 8 Free.
Antivirus 2008 needs to be removed in safe mode (press F8 on start up) and select start windows in safe mode, choose windows XP, then choose the administrator account and the run the anti virus then restart your pc

Hi, maybe you can take a try of this rescue program called PowerSuite Golden. I came across similar blue screen situaiton on my HP laptop (win 7) and it helped me get rid of it and rescued my data back. It is an awesome toolkit that includes a boot CD and several other data rescue tools that help get your PC going even if Windows won't start or computer won't boot up at all. Hope it helps in your situation too. Regards
Hi, yes. Download a program called ERD Commander 2008 or 2005 and make a bootable CD. I think you will download an ISO so you need Nero to burn it on a disk. Then boot from it (on the toshiba 4300) and once you are using the ERD commander, look for system restore, and it's the same as the Windows system restore. Choose a day before you downloaded the Internet Explorer and see if it works. I hope this helps. Don't forget to rate and provide positive feedback

Try start up in Safe Mode press F8. Choose Safe Mode, when at the choice window, to select either Safe Mode Desktop, OR System Restore, chooses system restore and choose a time before you had the "Problem" and follow instructions. This should get you back.
Try to enter the OS through safe mode F8 at startup go in their and search for system restore, try to pick a date before u got infected and it should get it back to normal. the other route is if you have your OS disc there is an option to repair your computer this will restore the default values in the registry and system files.
Hello my friend,
The blue screen is very popular and it's usually happen when there is a file system deleted or a virus on your computer.
You may try to boot up your system in safe mode and then uninstall any software that you installed recently and restore also your computer to a date when it was working fine.
If this doesn't fix the issue, you can try the recovery system if enabled when you installed your system for the first time.
If it's not the case, the only way to get this computer working again is by formating your computer and installing windows again.
What I would suggest is logging on in safe mode and trying to restore it to an earlier date using system restore. likely the profile is corrupted. By doing a restore back about 4 to 7 days , or before this started happening, will likely fix your issue. If not you will have to purchase the restore cd from toshiba or restoring it from a recovery partition if it has one.
That is called the "blue screen of death". Another words your system crashed. Did you download any software, music, drivers or screen savers? If anything, what exactly did you download. If you just opened a web site, sounds like your may have gotten a virus. Try restarting and try to boot into "safe mode". Run your anti-virus making sure you turn off system restore first and delete all internet temp. files/ cookies/ and history. Delete your recycle bin/ restart and see if that takes care of the problem.
If you still can't boot without the BOD, try doing a system restore to the point before this started. Make sure to turn sys. restore back on once you solve the problem. If the blue screen comes up again, as soon as you see it hit pause on your keyboard and write down what it says; especially the error code; 0x0000008 etc.
