When you turn on the pc keep pressing F8 and it will boot into safe mode. When in safe mode highlight the option 'Last Known Good Configuration' and press enter. The pc should now reboot normally, if not you will need your installation cd to do a system repair.

    This will be refering to your anti virus programme, assuming you have one which you should have, it may need to be enabled within the programme.

    If it is not refering to your anti virus programme you have installed, then there will be a anti virus menu within the bios settings, which should be disabled.

    Do a spyware scan as you could well have spyware which is throwing this false message up.

Get safe mode off


Windows sometimes automatically runs on safe mode if the computer was not shut down properly the last time it was used. There is no turning safe mode off, you just need to restart your computer and everything will be back to normal.

Does "Delete restoration data and proceed to system boot menu. " erase my memory or files from computer?


No, delete restoration data just removes data that was saved just before your computer crashed or shut down without going through the normal shut down procedure. The operating system makes little temporary files while you are working on something so that it can restore them if the system goes down. Nothing happens to your real data files, documents, music, pictures, videos or memory.

When i start my gateway netbook lt20 a black screen pops up asking to start windows normally or 3 other options.. why?does this happen?


Usually because you didn't shut windows down properly before turning your computer off or completely draining your battery. If that is the case then simply select start windows normally and as long as you follow the correct shut down procedure it shouldn't happen again. If it does there may be a problem with your windows instalation.

Start with a boot disk. run a scandisk to find any errors, then try using fdisk to reconfigure your partitions, enabling you to format. this has worked for me in the past with desktop pcs.
