You probably have a virus/trojan/malware infection. Get a good scanner from www.malwarebytes.org and www.superantispyware.com. Between those two malware scanners you will have a decent chance of getting control of your system back in your hands. Add a good FREE antivirus program like Avast Home Free at www.avast.com. Remember running two antivirus programs at the same time can cause slowdowns and conflicts on a system.

My computer says configure updates and then it automatically turns off


This will be a long process of troubleshooting and may end up of restoring your computer to a factory settings. You can try the steps below:
First is boot up to advance boot options, to do this follow the steps below: -Turn off your computer -After pressing the turn on button start tapping F8 key until you see the Advance Boot Option. -Try choosing Last Known Good Configuration if it fail try Safemode, Safemode with networking or safemode with command prompt, if one is successful use system restore to restore your computer to an earlier date but if it fails you'll need to use your Operating System Disc to use the repair option.
Here's how to access system restore incase you're able to access Last Known Good Configuration, Safemode, Safemode with networking or safemode with command prompt: Windows XP: Click Start, point to All Programs, point to Accessories, point to System Tools, and then click System Restore select Restore my computer to an earlier time then select a bold date on the calendar and click Next on the Confirm Restore Point Selection page, click Next. System Restore restores the previous Windows XP configuration, and then restarts the computer. Then click OK on the System Restore Restoration Complete page.
Windows 7 and Windows Vista: Click Start, point to Programs, point to Accessories, point to System Tools, and then click System Restore select Restore my computer to an earlier time then select a bold date on the calendar and click Next on the Confirm Restore Point Selection page, click Next. System Restore restores the previous Windows configuration, and then restarts the computer. Then click OK on the System Restore Restoration Complete page.
If you're on safemode with command prompt: At the command prompt, type %systemroot%\system32\restore\rstrui.exe, and then press ENTER, System Restore window will pop-up then select Restore my computer to an earlier time then select a bold date on the calendar and click Next on the Confirm Restore Point Selection page, click Next. System Restore restores the previous Windows configuration, and then restarts the computer. Then click OK on the System Restore Restoration Complete page.
If all the steps above fails you need to use the recover disc or the operating system disc to do a repair on your computer. Revert back in case you need steps for using start-up repair.
Note: If the steps above and start-up repair fail there's no other option but to restore your computer to factory settings.

What do I do if I forgot my login password?


try booting into safe mode by pressing F8 when you turn your computer on, before windows starts
try to login as administrator leave the password blank
if you successfully log in go to "control panel" then "user accounts"
select your account and change your password.

If you are unable to login as administrator in safe mode you can try a password recovery tool

    Try this Open IE. Then find and click Tools. Select Internet Options. Go to Advance tab and at the bottom look for the option to Reset Internet Explorer Settings. Then re-open another IE and try to play facebook games. If you were able to play before, try doing a restore. Follow these: Click Start menu. Select All programs. Go to Accessories, then System tools and click System Restore. A window will pop up asking you what date to select. Select the date when you were able to play facebook games. But DO NOT select a date that has a description of Critical update. If you do, system restore will fail. You won't lose any date on doing this.

    Tried to install nortan on sony vaio laptop next day i tried to start laptop it shows the system menu but then image error pops up with a black screen. cannot use laptop i think i may have lost data....


    There might be a problem during the installation of norton. What you can try to do is to perform a system restore and bring back the computer to an earlier date before you install norton or befor you get the problem. Here are the steps on how to do it:

    1. restart the computer
    2. press F8 key repeatedly when you see the VAIO logo until you get the screen that says Advanced boot option
    3. use the arrow keys on the keyboard to highlight safemode then press enter
    4. when it loads to safemode, go to start menu
    5. go to all programs
    6. click accessories
    7. click system tools the select system restore
    8. on the system restore window, click next
    9. in choose a different restore point, you will see list of dates or calendar where you can pick a date that you want to use in restoring back the computer settings.
    10. click on the next button again
    11. click finish
    the computer will start restoring the settings back to the selected date which may take for a few mins(2mins to 10mins usually). system restore does not delete any personal files/documents. It only undo software applications, updates and settings.

    Just bought an acer aspire ax1200-b1581a.it worked fine for a few days now it will pop up there was a problem with the internet and shut the itnernet down,it started out going blue screen and at the bottom...


    I think the problem is related to virus. Try restoring your PC to an earlier date 9 a date when it worked fine). You do this from Start-> Programs -> Accesories -> System Tools -> System Restore. Select
    Restore my computer to an earlier time and Click Next. A date calender will appear, select the preferred date and click Next twice. The system will automatically restart when restoration is done.

    If u are not abe to run System Restore then you need to enter safe mode by pressing F8 during booting and selecting Safe Mode from the menu that appears. In safe mode you will be asked a question, you have to select no, and system restore will start

    If restoring your pc does not solve the problem then you may need to reinstall your OS.
