E640 REBOOT


Hi John,

I see you mentioned you update IE9 then you now get a blank screen...

If I may ask the blank screen showed up after the update or did it show up after restarting the computer?

If your getting a Blank screen when you boot into windows after the IE9 update, try rebooting then boot into Safemode.

Restart you computer then as soon as you see the Boot screen of you computer keep on Tapping f8 to get a list select safemode, then once it boots into safemode windows will load up in safemode on the issue and you can navigate arround to fix things that went wrong.

click on the Start Button on the lower left of the task bar then, click on Programs, select accessories then select system tools, look for system restore then select the option select a different restore point, on the window you may see a list of restore points hoping your system restore was turned on in the very beginning, once you have selected a restore point keep on clicking next then a warning will show just click next again then it will restart your computer.

System restore allows you to restore to a date where you had windows working fine without any problems so if you can get a restore point before updating IE9 then it is possible that you may be able to fix you windows back the way it was.

I hope that this will help,

Thank you for using FixYa

The best way to remove virus from your computer is to restart and load windows in safe mode

Restart PC, press the F8 key and select safe mode

login to the computer and run an anti virus on the computer system

restart and check if it has been resolved


Another option could be a system restore

Start > pograms > accesories > system tools > system restore

restore to a date where the computer was working properly

Hope this information was helpful

Windows xp hangs at boot up.Shows background theme but takes forever just for icons to show up. Using ibm Thinkpad T42. Don't dare use any registry fix, last time it trashed my hard drive.


your symptoms sound as if you have a trojan or virus running in the background, i assume you have an upto date antivirus programme, if so start your pc in safe mode (press F8 key on startup) and then select start windows in safe mode, when you select your operating system, it will load the minimum of drivers and give an administrator account.

Click on this account and then run the antivirus and spyware programme, then restart your pc.

ø First of All Shut Down your Computer.
ø Restart Computer and Keep Tapping F8.
ø Choose Safe mode with Networking and Press Enter. (Win XP or 2000).
ø Run Windows in Safe Mode Click Yes.
ø Restoring Windows to a previous point
ø Click Start, Programs or All Programs, Accessories, System Tools, and then System Restore. The Welcome to System Restore window opens.
ø Select restore my computer to an earlier time, and click Next. The Select a Restore Point window opens.
ø Select a bolded date and a restore point, and then click next
ø (Note: - You need to choose a Date before the installation of Norton)
ø Click OK if a pop-up window about closing programs appears. The Confirm Restore Point Selection window opens.
ø Click Next. The computer should shut down and turn back on automatically after the restoration completes. The Restoration Complete window appears.
ø Click OK. The computer has now been restored to a previous time when it worked correctly.
ø (Note: - If an error message appears saying that the computer cannot be restored to the point you selected, try a different restore point)
After the System Restore is complete, and the computer starts successfully, update the computer software as follows: - 1). Update the system virus definitions. 2).Get the latest critical system updates using Microsoft's Windows update.
Once all this is Done you Need to Download and Install Norton Again.

The hard drive may be defective. It is very difficult to fix a computer problem over email unless it is a common type of fault. Get a computer tech to check this out for you.

I have just completed an update. If I choose to shut the computer down, the Turn Off has a security shield over it with the options "click Turn Off to install updates and turn off the computer" ...


The updates are downloaded to your computer, but have not been installed yet.

Pick the "install updates and turn off the computer" option.
