Question about PC Laptops

1 Answer

Can get a logo and "boot manager missing" Use CtrlAlt &del to start.It won't.

I uninstalled Norton trial and evrything went crashing . Finally decided to use restore disk. It said," disk one of 2 disks" but only one came with the purchase. I used the disk believing it would be ok. I am not computer smart and now I am using my old (windows 98) to find info. So it seems I have refomatted my disk and cannot get anything. I have Vista home premium which apparently was too advanced for me.

Norton sucks, use AVG Free 8.0.
other than that, see if another partition on the drive has the install info. You may need to go through your Bios to access that info.
WIN 98 on a newer machine is a mistake. Contact the manufacturer for an OEM install disk for your make/model laptop. (should be able to do that on the maker's website)

That means the Antivir corrupted system files that are responsible for the booting process. This is what you need to do...
Boot the computer until it comes to a point where you can only see the cursor. Then press CTRL + ALT + DEL. This will open the TASK MANAGER. In the Task manager, go to FILE and then click on NEW TASK and then type the following EXPLORER.EXE

This will make your desktop icons appear. Once they do appear, go to control panel and uninstall the antvir.Then restart and Install a different antivirus like Kaspersky

I have acer laptop, i tried to uninstall Norton 360 2010 last night, mu computer crashed and i can't get any further on than the password stage without my computer crashing.


You can boot into Safe Mode then restore from a save point prior to the Norton uninstall.
That's as far as I've got - even using the Norton Removal Tool gives me the same issue, so still haven't been able to get rid of Norton And have a stable laptop.

Try the "last good configuration option - that might work.
If it does not you can try running in safe mode, and from there try to uninstall any remaining norton files from the control panel's uninstall software icon/

Mistakenly downloaded Norton 360 and now I can't uninstall it. The face page is blank and it pops up on my main screen all of the time .


If you click Start then Control Panel then Programmes and Feature, look down the list until you see Symantec Norton 360. Select uninstall.
That will remove all of 360 but if it is not there, it has been deleted and not uninstalled. Re install the programme and uninstall it as per my instructions.

Boot mgr is missing


Boot Manager is missing If the boot partition no longer can be found, then Vista will display the following error: BOOTMGR is missing. Press Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart
The Windows Boot Configuration Data file is missing required information
More Info MS KB 919529 More Info MS KB 927391 Check points for fixing missing boot-manager: Check that your boot device is configured properly Boot into Windows Recovery Environment (WinRE) and perform a "Startup Repair". Boot Manager is compressed If by accident having compressed the entire boot partition, then Vista will display the following error: BOOTMGR is compressed. Press Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart OR maybe try this first. Check points for fixing compressed boot-manager: Boot into Windows Recovery Environment (WinRE) and perform a "Startup Repair". If the above doesn't solve the problem then boot into WinRE again, but when selecting the Vista-installation, then press "Load Drivers" (Instead of "Next") and use the mini Windows Explorer to right-click the boot-drive and deselect "Compress this Drive" and choose Apply to sub-folders and files. If that also fails then boot into WinRE again, and go to the "Command Prompt" and execute these commands: compact /U C:\bootmgr compact /U C:\ntldr If you for some strange reason have lost your Vista DVD, then you can also use a Windows 2000 / XP install CD and enter the recovery console instead and execute the following commands: attrib -c c:\bootmgr attrib -c c:\ntldr


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.

Norton trial version expired but not uninstalled


1. Yes, uninstall before installing any other antivirus program or security suite. Your computer (and you) will be happier.
2. Once you uninstall the trial version of Norton, go ahead and download One Care. I've heard some good things about it, but haven't used it personally or seen it installed on a client's computer.
3. Symantec/Norton has made improvements to their software uninstalls. If you have a newer version of Norton installed, it should cleanly uninstall from the Add/Remove programs area. If it's older, you may have issues getting it to uninstall - leaving remnants as you mentioned. Symantec has help removing their software completely on their support site if you need help.


Hope this helps! : )
