Firefox wont load unless I re-install or load from programs...

Question: Firefox wont load unless I re-install or load from programs...

This operation has been canceled due to restrictions in effect on this computer. Please contact your system administrator. Thats the message i get unless I load programs like jfk reloaded and hit check website or the check IP program i use loads it up but the firefox symbol gives me that message! I went into control panel and changed it to my default browser like I read on a read through on this problem but it changes it right back anyways and wont work so the read ups i read didn't work on a google search and I am scratching my head...Thanks!

Preferred Solution: Firefox wont load unless I re-install or load from programs...

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I click the icons in each case and the process starts in task manager but the memory used doesn't change im guessing this suggests this means its frozen. no window appears except for word where the microsoft word loading box appears. it seems weird how only these programs are affected and there wasn't a sudden occasion that all 3 stopped working over the last day they started to not load. however recently itunes has started to load but freezes imediatly. oh and btw my computer has had no problem running these programs in the past and has done problem free for a year without problems.

Answer:Many Key Programs (Firefox, Word and iTunes) wont load up. why?

I have a Dell Inspiron N5050 laptop with windows 7 home edition 64 bit.  Whenever I try to open or run AVG the application freezes.  I've tried installing skype and the installer usually won't even launch or it will freeze part way through.  I've ran online virus scans but nothing shows up.  Also internet explorer will not launch.  I get a system message saying internet explorer has stopped working.  It looks for solution but doesn't find anything.

Backstory (skip if you need)
I'm fixing someones laptop, It was slow and taking 30 minutes to startup, i did the usually virus scan and restarted, then it was stuck in an auto repair loop. I used a windows 8 Install CD from microscoft. None of the options in it would work, install (key doesnt match) reset (missing partition), image recovery (cant find an image), restore (no restore point), etc.
Used command prompt, did stuff like bootrec, bcdedit, diskpart, and chkdsk. After it ran chkdsk it finally loaded windows. I reset/reinstalled the OS completely. Fixed, restarted, running smooth. Owner said it was working great for a day, then after turning it back on it was in an auto repair loop.
It's stuck in a preair loop, I can't even boot from the 8 CD! Have it configured in the bios, it shows the the blue windows logo then the screen goes black for 3 minutes and a blue screen flashes for 1 second saying  "Your PC ran into a problem and need to restart. Collecting some info (0% complete) search online for error: 0x000021a"
The weird thing is, Windows 7 disks boot fine, but it's "not compatible". And if I physically remove the HDD, it will boot into the windows 8 CD. So I put the HDD back in (while still at the command prompt) and it wont take my commands in related to the C: . I get a "System cannot find the drive specified"
I also tried hooking upp the HDD to my PC SATA, it shows in explorer, but just right clicking it crashes explorer.exe. D... Read more

Answer:Windows wont load, Boot CD wont load, Automatic Repair Loop

I got a windows 8.1 disk made and it allowed me yo boot from the CD, but it's SLOOOOW, it takes minutes to load reset or w.e (none of them still work), or open the command prompt.
I ran chkdsk /f /r /x but it didnt help. chkdsk /r ends with:
"A disk read error occurredcc0000185
Insufficient disk space to fix the Usn Journal $J data stream."
Before when I ran it, I'm pretty sure it let me restart and booted into windows, not now.
Next I tried bootrec.
/fixmbr - succesful
/fixboot - succesfull
/rebuildBCD - Total identified Windows installations: 0
/scanOS - Total identified Windows installations: 0
Next bcdedit
Nothing worked "The boot configuration data store could not be opened. The requested system device cannot be found."
Next sfc /scannow
"There is a system repair pending which requires reboot to complete. Restart Windows and run sfc again."
"Windows resources protection didnt find integrity violations"
BCDBoot c:\WindowsFailure when attempting to copy boot files
Next diskpart - but I forgot what I did before that may have worked. All i can remember is I had to select a disk or volume, and do something with it.

Heres the problem im having. I just bought a new X-Fi sound card. just the music one for $130. I decided to just format when installing it. I used to have an Audigy 2. So i installed the new card. Formatted. I did all the things i normall do. install all the drivers i need. and do all of the windows updates. and install AVG. And i installed the drivers for the sound card straight from the disc. and i checked to updates on the sound card on creatives website. only one for the mini disc i think. I havnt even installed one game yet. Now the computer is being stupid. When i turn it on, it runs fine for a while. Then i try to turn on a program or something, like mozilla or windows media player. and it does nothing. and the hardrive light turns on, and just stays on. and the computer wont open anything after this happends. Then i go to task manager, and check the proccesses. the process will be there that i tried to open. i try to end task it, but nothing happends. only thing i can do to restart my computer. and it takes like 10 min to restart after this happends. it ask me to end task like 5 things for some reason. i dont want to format again and see if that helps. i dont know if thatll even fix the problem. I installed all the same drivers that i usually do. only thing that was different was i went from ati catalyst 4.5 to 4.10 and thats it. Any clues?

Answer:Programs wont load sometimes

I only installed the Basic Drivers with my X-Fi.. Fuck all that otheer creative bloatware garbage.

Question: Firefox wont load

I've somehow cocked up Firefox. I downloaded a file from the Tor site to try the proxy IP program and installed it. I couldn't get it to work so I unistalled it but Firefox refused to start. I clicked the shortcut but the hour glass appeared for about a second then nothing. I have since uninstalled Firefox 3.0.9 together with all folders etc. and reinstalled it but just the same. A message appeared on 1 unistall saying that I had to close Firefox to uninstall it so even though nothing appears on the desktop it must be running somewhere! I even tried going to a restore point before the download from the Tor site but no difference.

Any ideas please.

I tried straight away to sign into oovoo, but it wouldnt sign in.. so I tried skype.. and it loaded. Then I stopped the call after chatting for a while and I tried to switch over to my other skype account. It wouldnt sign in.. just like the oovoo problem.

Today, Google has been loading fine all day long under the address, but now when I try to load it, it comes up as if it cant load (like when you dont have a connection, but I can still load the google search engine by going through my gmail account and clicking on the search on the top toolbar.

Hi there,

I've been using firefox for the past 8 months or so and i've been really happy with it, and have experienced no problems whatsoever. I use it everyday and including last night when I went to check my gmail and I got the Alert error-" cannot be found. Please check the name and try again" So I thought it might have been my broadband connection-but I could access gmail via IE6. I've checked my firewall and anti-virus settings and all appears to be fine. Ive re booted the machine and uninstalled and reinstalled firefox but i cannot access any pages through it. It's sooooo frustrating!!! Any ideas on even why this is happening would be terrific!

It is a survey panel, all above board. Ive emailed them and they cannot figure out any problem at their end. Ive emailed another forum too and the replies said that they had no problem getting it to work. SO it must be my problem!

Ive tried it in Firefox and IE 7, all to no avail. Im using Vista; the laptop is pretty new. No problem with any other websites. But this just wont work.

I have broadband, and using a wireless router.

I did have a problem submitting a post longer than 8-10 lines to Wealthy Appiliate forum about 6 months ago. Again they checked it out and tried everything and to no avail. If the post was shorter there was no problem. Really weird.

My ISP webmaster cannot figure out why this should be. Im not sure if the 2 problems are connected. Someone suggested the router firewall....??? Do I have one, I dont know! Im using Vista firewall. Why would the firewall affect 1 site or 1 post?

I've also, just tonight, tried it on my sisters connection down the road, and still no joy. She's using the same service provider.

This probably messed up your firefox profile, which in turn could be why firefox will not load. Read through this link here to set up a new profile to see if that works.

EDIT : Just remembered, before you do that see if it firefox boots up with add-ons disabled, to do this start hold down the shift key while starting Firefox, and see if it runs if it does try disabling add-ons in safe mode then re-enable one at a time until you find the one that is causing the issue, then remove it.

Any info or help anyone could give me would be much appreciated

Answer:a Particular website wont load in either IE or Firefox query

Bleeping Computer DOES NOT recommend the use of registry cleaners/optimizers for several reasons:? Registry cleaners are extremely powerful applications that can damage the registry by using aggressive cleaning routines and cause your computer to become unbootable.The Windows registry is a central repository (database) for storing configuration data, user settings and machine-dependent settings, and options for the operating system. It contains information and settings for all hardware, software, users, and preferences. Whenever a user makes changes to settings, file associations, system policies, or installed software, the changes are reflected and stored in this repository. The registry is a crucial component because it is where Windows "remembers" all this information, how it works together, how Windows boots the system and what files it uses when it does. The registry is also a vulnerable subsystem, in that relatively small changes done incorrectly can render the system inoperable. For a more detailed explanation, read Demystifying the Windows Registry.? Not all registry cleaners are created equal. There are a number of them available but they do not all work entirely the same way. Each vendor uses different criteria as to what constitutes a "bad entry". One cleaner may find entries on your system that will not cause problems when removed, another may not find the same entries, and still another may want to remove entries required for a program to work...

My firefox won't load certain sites. Like i can get to the google home page, but it refuses to search for anything , just says waiting for google forever.
I also can't go to and some other forums too. But youtube works fine , tsf works fine and some others.

Internet explorer works fine with all the site but I hate internet explorer and I want my firefox to go back to the way it was. I reinstalled a bunch with no change, I tried firefox 3 beta 5 and that still was the same. I tried older versions and still nothing. It can't be my firewall because it set to allow firefox and it was working fine with the firewall on before.

I have a NB100 And when it trys to boot i get Windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt: System32\Drivers\Ntfs.sys

I have connected a DVD drive with the product recovery disc GMR400882EN0 inside it and powered on, on booting i keep F12 pressed and I get the options for setting it to boot from HD FDD CD/DVD USB Memory, I set it to boot from CD/DVD

When it loads it gets to loading RAM image I get Error 32768 File PEBASE ISO Could Not Load.

I am suspecting faulty recovery disc? and a new one is 29.99? But the laptop is under warranty but they told me to do this.

Answer:NB100 Recovery Disc wont load - Error 32768 File PEBASE could not load

>I am suspecting faulty recovery disc? and a new one is 29.99? But the laptop is under warranty but they told me to do this.

I doubt it?s a faulty recovery disk.
The error message: missing or corrupt: System32\Drivers\Ntfs.sys could be caused by faulty HDD or another hardware component.
In your case I recommend contacting the Toshiba ASP for hardware check and new OS installation. The notebook is under warranty (as you suggested in the posting above) and therefore everything should be done for free because it?s covered by warranty

I run both IE 8 and Firefox on my Dell Dimension system. I'm having problems now with both browsers taking forever to load. This may be a virus or network problem. IE 8 just loaded now after 15 minutes (exactly - I timed it).

- Once it's loaded once, both browsers load in normal amounts of time.
- I haven't downloaded any new add-ons lately unless one browser or the other installed one in the background.
- The problem just started today after a reboot.
- I've also noticed that my network icon in the taskbar doesn't show up anymore when I first boot but by the time IE opens, it has showed up.
- Using ipconfig, I did determine that I am on the network and connected immediately after boot up (router also shows me connected immediately).
- I've tried running IE from the command line with iexplore.exe -extoff. It didn't make any difference. I don't know if this works with IE 8 though.
- When I click to open either web browser, the process shows up right away in Task Manager and remains.
- I have all the latest updates to both browsers that I know of.
- I've run a complete system scan with McAfee (fully updated as of today.)

Now I've run out of ideas on what to try. I appreciate any help!

I dont know if this is posted in the right area but I'm so desperate to get my laptop working its unreal.
First it started off with my laptop crashing, I had totally forgot it needed to do a windows update and turned off my laptop in hopes that it would work properly.
After that my laptop has not been working. The machine turns on and gives me two options. Start windows normally or do a repair. Upon starting windows normally, it loads so far before sending me back to the two options of start windows normally or repair. On the second time I clicked repair. My laptop then goes so far before presenting me with a blue screen that is usually the screen where my accounts are. The cursor still moves but it loads no further even after leaving it an hour. I decided to make a repair disk, hoping that the problem was because of windows. the disk loads, gives me a choice on the keyboard language then does nothing. I honestly have no idea what to do, I want to keep all the files safe on my computer as I havent backed them up and I have worked so hard on the projects. someone please help

Answer:windows 7 refuses to load and system repair wont load

Do a hardware/software reset with your BIOS:Shut down and turn off the computer.
Unplug the computer from the wall or surge protector (then remove the battery if it is a laptop).
"Remove the computer from any port replicator or docking station, disconnect
cables to printers or devices such as external monitors, USB memory sticks or SD cards, headset or external speakers, mouse or auxiliary keyboard, turn off WIFI and Bluetooth wireless devices." (Use Hard Reset to Resolve Hardware and Software Issues HP Pavilion dv5000 Notebook PC series - HP Customer Care (United States - English))
Hold down the power button for 30 seconds. This closes the circuit and ensures all
power from components is drained to clear the software connections between the BIOS
and hardware and clear any corruption in the temporary memory.
(If it is a laptop, plug the battery back into the laptop and then) Plug the computer back into the wall. Do not reconnect any unnecessary peripherals; monitor, keyboard,
and mouse should suffice and be the only peripherals reconnected.
Turn it on to reinitialize the software connections between the BIOS and hardware

After doing those steps, clear your CMOS by entering the BIOS (see your system manual for steps to enter the BIOS), going to the EXIT screen, and loading setup/optimized defaults.

This is so weird. One,I have Windows Vista Home Premium. Two,in Problem Reports and Solutions it says "Windows Vista Problem found" and when I click on it it doesn't load.

At first I thought it was some problem with the computer connecting to a network,but I cant see for sure because that wont even load. And now I'm thinking it's an error related to the Operating System,driver or another component. But its something.

I've tried going to Windows Update in Control Panel,but that wont load either. I've tried Windows Help and Support,but when I click on a link to help it wont load anything.
I've tried this link: Um,not helping? I tried Task Manager,but I dont get what I can do with that to fix the issue.I've called HP & Microsoft,but no help seems to be given.

I think I have narrowed it down to the google toolbar causing the problem. I dont know if there is a fix for that or if I will have to dump the toolbar and replace it with another. I have been using the google toolbar for years in that site and never had this problem before. I dont see any settings in the toolbar that could cause this. Anyone have any ideas? It is not the google toolbar solely, sometimes it loads sometimes it doesnt when I disable the toolbar. I have done a total uninstall of firefox including personal settings and all but it still wont work properly. The site loads ok with IE8. I have been using the firefox browser for 3 or 4 years now and never had any problems till now

I have used TSG before and am asking for help again. I would post information regarding my computer but I have notbeen able to open any internet connections on my desktop in several days. For some reason there are several non responsive programs on the desktop that will not open. I am writing this from my Asus netbook, which is connected to the same network so I do not believe its the network itself, but who knows. I tried to run HiJackThis, but it would not load, IE and Mozilla Firefox will not open or load...I double click, you see the hour glass, and then, nothing happens. When I try to use contorl-alt-delete to see if the program is nonresponsive my task manager will not open and then my start menu will also not open. Interestingly, my Mozilla Thunderbird email opens with no problems and downloads messages from the server. There are two things that are different about my computer in the last several months. One is that I got rid of my printer and got a new one, and I do not think that would affect the connectivity? The other is that I tried installing google chrome and was super disappointed to find toolbars installed without my knowledge or permission.

I've been fighting with this problem for days now, I posted to's forum but no'one there could help me.

This all started when I tried to open BSplayer, all I got was the message "this program has encountered an error and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience." Naturally, I decided to run a spyware check and tried to open Ad-Aware - same result.
Tried to reinstall both programs, the error message started displaying during install.
I opened the computer in safe mode, and noticed that both programs work fine there. I ran Ad-Aware and cleaned the computer, after that I ran Avast and Ewido (both of them work in normal mode) I also tried several online scanners, and the computer should be completely clean. After that I tried to install other anti-spyware and antivirus softwares to see if they'd find something new, but all of the refused to install, I didn't even get an error message, just the error sound.
I tried to check the processes that aren't functioning during safe mode, but found nothing suspicious, yet the culprit has to be something that runs in normal mode, but not in safe mode.

Also, I don't know if it is of any importance, but at the same time I noticed that the programs don't work, a message started to display during log-in that said that "There is no disk in drive A. Please insert a disk". That is a minor annoyance, but I thought that if this is a virus the message could be relevant.

My PC has (well, had) a Pioneer DVD reader. After upgrade to Windows XP, if I put a DVD into the drive with data on it I can't see all the data files from Windows Explorer.

Autoplay appears to work and launches SETUP.EXE but then that fails with a message "Setup.exe failed. Send error report / Don't send".

This was trying to load SIMS 2, I took it back to the shop & it installed OK on their PC with a normal DVD reader. So we reckoned the problem was the Pioneer device - it's quite old.

So I bought a spanking new LITEON DVD/RW drive & installed it in the machine.

Now the Sims2 DVD shows up in Windows Explorer & the files/folders can be seen. I can even copy individual files onto the desktop, but when I start up SETUP.EXE it fails as before.

I've tried a magazine cover DVD. This one goes from Autoplay into start-to-load and then displays "ierunner.exe failed. Send error report / Don't send"

This feels as if it is something missing from the XP device driver setup. But the LiteOn shows up in device manager with its own name - presumably it's picked up drivers from the XP generic device drivers.

Because I get the same error message with both DVD drives, I don't think it's the fault of the drive any more. The Sims 2 DVD works at the shop but not on my PC. The Pioneer was able to load programs OK when the same PC was running Windows 98 (but I don't handle data DVDs very much so that was a long time ago). The Pioneer was able to ... Read more

Answer:Web pages wont load or load completely

Do you have more then 1 computer connected to your modem/router? If so, does this happen on them? If not, can you connect a separate one (ex: friend's laptop) to test?

Normally when you get errors like this it's best to rule out a problem at the modem/router and provider before going crazy over trying to fix a problem (that may not exist) on your PC(s).

Also just a couple of other questions:

Who is your internet provider (ISP)?
What connection type do they use (Cable/DSL/Fiber/Fixed Wireless/Mobile Wireless)?
What is the make and model of your router and modem?

MS Windows SP3

Intel Pentium 4 CPU 2.66GHz, 1.0GB Ram
I do maintenance on my PC often like defrag when needed , disk cleanup and virus scans and use CCleaner often

I recently did virus scan and found 4 or so viruses and got rid of them

Scanned for malware using Malwarebytes'Anti-Malware and found a few problems and took care of them

got rid of gamvance thing i had on there

I have minimal things load on startup of my pc

Any help with this problem would be great

Answer:Some Pages wont load at all and others load fine

Try running a ping to the sites that have trouble loading to see what kind of connection times you are looking at. I would also run a tracert to those sites to see if there are any places dropping the connection.

Update. AVG free is finding nothing. Ad-Aware SE would hang up on me but I think the panda scan took care of that because I ran ad-aware again and it ran through to completion... however it didn't fix any problems.
My Pole Display for our store is not working from the COM port.
My Graphics card isn't giving me the technicolor display anymore because I disabled it, but of course now I can't play games without the hardware acceleration. When I enable it and start the system over it does it all over again.
Generally comp runs slow... When I go to shut down I have to close lots of dll file programs. On start up I get pop ups.

Answer:icons image missing, random behavior/errors, programs load at times or wont

I don't know what I did wrong in my posting but I never got a reply

anyways.. I have an update just in case someone finds themselves in a similar situation with similar conditions.

I kept running malwarebytes (total full scans= 4) and also Spybot search and destroy until I have no other infections, the infection was first found within a folder inside documents and settings (I forgot the location) and later it appeared in a system volume folder (I believe it was one of the folders from system restore) eventually no other threats were found, then I was able again to load the system in normal mode (the malwarebytes scans were being done in safemode) and after several reboots for testing there were no more traces of the infection causing the random errors when opening applications, and no more missing icons and sections. I did a house call scan and a karspersky online scan with no threats found. system became properly responsive again.

the treat had a very special behaviour: in the middle of my attempts to get rid off it, there was a point in which the system responded so well that I thought that the threat was gone (after first malwarebyte run), when I rebooted though I was back to square one. the lesson learned is that malwarebytes or the tools being used may have to be run more than once until full cleaning is confirmed.

keeping fingers crossed customer may not call back in a while!

I recently installed kaspersky to help a friend scan his drive. nothing has happened since i did it a week ago, but recently i looked into the list of vulnerabilites. i tried to fix the msoffice vulnerability by installing SP2 for office, however it said Kaspersky was blocking it and to turn it off, so i did thinking it was temporary, then it said it had to restart, on restart, kaspersky didnt load, so i tried manually loading it, and nothing happened. when i tried to restart it again it said steam was not responding (which is normal for me during shutdown) but i never noticed steam loaded. so on restart, neither program loaded, except for magic jack which loads after startup. then i tried installing malwarebytes, and it downloads, but closes out during install. So i installed Superantispyware and malwarebytes on a flash drive through another computer, i ran SAS, with no results on quick or full scan, and malwarebytes wouldn't load.

Some websites, for example: and

do not load in my newly installed IE7.

The error message says:

This program cannot display the webpage

Most likely causes:
You are not connected to the Internet.
The website is encountering problems.
There might be a typing error in the address.

What you can try:
Check your Internet connection. Try visiting another website to make sure you are connected.
Retype the address.
Go back to the previous page.

But the same websites load OK in Firefox.

I have fiddled around with the security settings etc., but still no joy.

I did not have such a problem with IE6.

I also use Maxthon Browser from time to time. But since that is based on IE engine, even that will not show some websites.

Can somebody suggest a solution?

Hi. This problem has been plaguing me for a month or so, but as I have another computer, it has not been debilitating.

Basically, the main problem is that I can't load some programs or if loaded, the programs don't run properly.

1. Windows Live Messenger - At first, the problem was that although I could open the Messenger window and log in properly, after a few seconds of logging in, the program would just shut down completely. Now the problem is that when attempting to log in, a window pops up stating that my messenger program is out-of-date and that to continue, I would have to download an update (which it does for me). After the update has downloaded, the Windows Live "Welcome" window pops up, and the program shuts down. I've tried downloading the messenger from the official site, but once I open the installation file, the "Welcome" window pops up, and the program shuts down.

2. Kaspersky Anti-Virus - I installed this with few problems. However, when I started the program, the regular Kaspersky start screen showed, and then the program shut down. Now, the program doesn't even attempt to open (i.e., no start screen, just a shutdown of the program).

3. Web sites - Some websites don't work properly, like live streaming web sites (e.g., All sites load, but the footage often just doesn't show.

4. Other programs that don't work properly - TVAnts and a few other ones that I don't remember.

Hi guys, tryin to help my bro with a fubared system. He has xp home w/ sp 2. Here is what happened: He downloaded Panda AV, for some reason the install screwed up because now windows only partially loads. Not even a bottom task bar and start menu.

Panda says some part of the engine was unable to install. Going to add/remove does not help , when tryin to remove panda, it says cant remove because same thing, something to do w/ the panda engine. Same thing when trying to go to system just says you have to restart windows to use system restore, i guess because part of windows is not fully loading?

the user IF wasnt even loading at first, but i got it back.

Any programs he tries to open wont open (like burning software to back up some files) they say not enough system memory, ( again, maybe because its not fully loading?), when check asus probe he had over 500 MB of usuable memory.and ive made sure the sticks of ram are good.

I tried safe mode , then system restore from cmd prompt, still says same restart , which of course, i have done many times.

I then booted from his xp install disc , went to repair windows, it did the usual coping of files, then when it got to the actuall install of windows after 2 min of install w/ 39 min left, we got a fatal error (ugg),

My question is if I buy him a new hard drive, how do I get data on it, or can I just format it and install the new os? I cant see anything is the problem.

ok this is gonna be a bit long but i want the details there. the issue pc is my old pc. it has windows 7 its an asus msn-la motherboard i cloned this drive and used it in my new pc. after a few months my new pc's drive died and i took the old drive from the issue pc(witch was not giving issues at this time) and stuck it into my new pc until my replacement drive came. when i got the replacement drive i cloned the drive again onto the replacement drive and then put the new drive in the new pc had no issues there. put the old drive back into the issue pc (this is when issues started) the pc booted up to the windows desktop loading screen fast but once it got there it sat there for like 5 min before loading into windows. once it loaded into windows it was un usable for around 10 min while it loaded background stuff. once it finally loads into windows if i try to open anything its still responding extremely slow. is there anything i could do to fix this or is this going to me a re install only situation? i did try to use a windows 7 disk to do a startup repair but it claimed i couldn't do it because i dident install from that disk.

First off I suddenly got the Antivirus Pro. Went to your forums and tried the removal guide, went to taskbar and tried to end process on antiviruspro.exe and svchast.exe. Then I downloaded Malwarebytes and tried to scan, about 10 seconds into the scan the program shutdown. I also tried to run SDfix and as soon as it started scanning it shut down. I rebooted and started in safe mode with networking, when I did this Windows Antivirus 2010 also appeared on my desktop along with antivirus pro. Next I downloaded the trial of avast and did the scan on startup since I couldn't get any programs to run. During the scan it said it deleted Antispyware 2010 along with about 5 other trojans that I forget what they are and failed to write down. After the scan I rebooted in safemode with networking once again and now my desktop will not load. The only way I can try to open a program is through the taskbar using ctrl alt del. Tried running explorer.exe, tried Old Timer program, tried fix.reg w/notepad and still nothing happens. I don't know what else to try to get my desktop back. Im not even sure if I got rid of either of the viruses, they don't show up in processes in the taskbar but I cant get anything to work. Every program except internet explorer shuts down or wont open altogether. I hope I have explained all of this well enough. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Answer:system repair wont work windows wont load

Might be a failing Hard drive. Get to your bios and see if there is any diagnostics there to do a hard drive test. On some motherboards its delete on others its F2. If there is no diagnostics on the bios i would make a USB bootable diagnostics and do that.
I just had the same problems and found out the hard way that it was a hard drive.

Our family computer is randomly having trouble connecting to the internet when loading some web pages or web pages wont load. I occasionally have the same problem with my laptop but never at the same time. Which leads me to believe it is not likely my router. Would that be correct? My wife plays alot of games from Yahoo Games. Could that be a source of some of the problems?

I have some of the tools I believe will be needed to clean the system loaded to my desktop ready to go. I need some direction to be sure I don't go out of order and cause a bigger problem.

Thank you

When I start up my pc, I get a screen that says, "We apologize for the inconvenience, but Windows did not start successfully, a recent hardware or software change may have caused this, &#8230;.etc."
Then I am offered with a bunch of options to either:

1) Start in Safe Mode
2) Safe Mode with Networking
3) Safe Mode with Command Prompt
4) Start Windows Normally
5) Last Known Good Configuration

None of them work, the safe mode ones, show a bunch of lines of code as per normal when starting up safe mode, then it freezes and stops and eventually goes back to the screen mentioned above. Same for 4 and 5, windows blue loading bar screen comes up, then the screen turns black and nothing. After a few mins my computer restarts again and goes back to the screen mentioned above.

Prior to my computer not being able to restart/load windows. I had some pop up vundu trojans i was trying to remove. Did some research after about 5 hours finally removed it. A couple days after i started receiving "generic host process error" Something to do with explorer.exe program. So i ctrl + alt + del and explorer.exe was taking up 100 cpu usage. At this point i tried to minimize task manager and my computer froze up. I waited about an hour came back and still nothing so i manually turned off my computer and turned back on. And now it will not restart. I have no idea where my windows xp disks are or even if i have them. I found what appears to be the solution to my explorer.exe pr... Read more

Answer:Computer wont boot, wont boot in safe mode, wont load repair centre

Hello there,
It seems like you did not perform a clean installation of Windows and that's why your system is acting up. 
Follow the steps below to install a new copy of Windows:
1. To format your hard disk during Windows 7 installation you will need to start or boot your computer using the Windows 7 installation disc or USB flash drive. Insert your Windows 7 disc in your CD/DVD drive. Please note: will need to restart or turn on your system with the disc in the drive. 
2. After turning on your system with the CD in the drive go ahead and press any key when prompted during your computer post routine and then follow the instructions presented on screen. If you don’t see this go back to step 1 to setup your BIOS to boot from CD or USB flash drive depending on your installation media.
3. On the Install Windows page simply enter your preferences and click next.
4. Accept the Windows license agreement.
5. On the “Which type of installation do you want” page go ahead and choose the “Custom” option.
6. Select Drive options (advanced) on the “Where do you want to install Windows” page.
7.  Select the partition that you want to change, choose the formatting option you want to perform and then follow the instructions.
When allocating space choosing the default MB size for your drive is typically the best for most users since you want to take full advantage of all your disk... Read more

Does anyone have any advice for the following? I was running a scientific program (Matlab) that caused my computer to hang and required cutting the power. When I restarted I started getting all these problems.

Office 2007 no longer starts (Word was running when my computer hung). When I try to start Word, it starts the Microsoft Installer process. Then the Installer fails and says: "Error 1719: The Windows Installer Service could not be accessed. This can occur if the Windows Installer is not correctly installed. Contact your support personnel for assistance." I confirmed that the Windows Installer service is started under services.msc. Unregistering and reregistering the installer with msiexec.exe /unregister and msiexec.exe /register does not help.

Reinstalling Office 2007 from the original setup file gives the error: "This file does not have a program associated with it for performing the action. Create an association in the Set Associations control panel." This was for setup.exe, but other .exe files work fine.

Going to Control Panel -> Program and Features and clicking on "Change" for Word gives: "An error has occurred while trying to uninstall Microsoft Office. It may have already been uninstalled." However, this error does not apply just Office, it applies to EVERY program on the computer.

Nothing will load on my Compaq Presario 700 notebook. It wont even turn on in safe mode.
When I go to turn it on it sounds like the hard drive attempts to spin. I don't hear the fans, but all the lights come on. The battery is fairly new and everything is plugged in properly.
All this began when I was running Macromedia Dreamweaver MX and it locked up forcing me to shut down.
Any ideas?

here is the deal. installed a new harddrive on a friends computer. installed the OS onthe new HDD and it wouldnt boot. wellllll i went and put back in the old HDD and now it wont boot that one either but what is worse is that the bios wont load either. i reset the bios by taking out the CMOS battery. even switching the jumpers. it reset my bios but it just wont load my bios menu. when i turn the pc on it tells me i need to set time and date in the bios big deal since i just reset it. however, when i hit delete to load the claims its "loading setup" but it never does. i let it sit for hours and it never loads the bios. its like its frozen. anyone have any suggestions on what i can do? i would be happy if i can just get the old configuration working so he can have a computer

Answer:PC wont boot AND wont load any bios..

What jumpers did you mess with. Was it a bios reset jumper?What is the system specs? It sounds like the Bios is toast.Try to go to the web site of the motherboard manfg,and get a bios and make a BIOS image on floppy and reflash the BIOS. There should be instructions on how to do this.
