SOURCE: Compaq notebook won't boot up
When you boot the computer back up go into Safe Mode and check to see if you can roll the computer back to the point before you installed the software.
If so this should work. If it works then run a virus scan, a defrag of the hard drive and cleans the temp files.
You can do a diagnostic startup and uninstall Onecare. So once that it is uninstall ed it should be smooth sailing.
Here is a link for some startup / diagnostic software you could try after booting.
I hope this helps

SOURCE: windows will not start up
choose start windows in Safe mode, if it starts then everything will look big, don't worry about that for now. Then go to Start>accessories>system Tools>system restore and choose a date when you know that everything was working normally, when it has finished restoring the computer will restart. If asked choose start windows normally.
I hope this helps

to check, take out your hard disk and put it in other laptop. if the problem persist your OS is corrupted. In that case, you need to reformat your OS in a defaulty factory settings.
