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 http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer: Big Big Urgent Urgent Urgent Help Needed...plssssss

What broke? Can you provide pics? But really, the chance of data loss should be low if you just leave it alone and fix it when you are given instructions.

Hello I had viruses on my Acer Aspire 5024WLMI so I stopped them running on startup via MSCONFIG and also deleted the registrys that came up from the search I did. One of the registrys I most assume userinit.exe got deleted and now when i start my system it automatically logs me off when I log on. I have tryed everything I can think of, booting from CD windows xp installed, booting from USB a bootable registry editor so I can make userinit.exe run again. When I boot from either CD or USB I have no option to press any key to load the application. I have tryed reordering boot prioreties and using F12 for advanced boot and non of that works. Please someone help me I need this fixed urgently :(. Thanks in advance.

Hey Guys and Gurus, Can anybody tell 800 MHz DDR2 works on 3000 y410 or not? My config is below:Core2Duo 1.;86 GHz1GB DDR2 533/667 MHz (Which one I? not sure...!!) DRAM with Dual Channel160 GB SATA HDDIntel 965 Series M/B............................................................................................................ Recently I have tried with a 800 MHz 2GB DDR2 along with my existing 1GB, it:a. Shows well of 3 GB in the BIOSb. Couldn see the BUS Speed as there is no option for that in the Phoniex BIOSc. Problem arises with my existing Windows 7 that was running well before I installed the new 2GB but now it JUST stopped working....Simply it boots up but shows various error masseges which are related to memory locations. The reseaons I thought over is maybe......    1.  Windows 7, onced installed issues all instructions to the memory locations for what it boots up faster than Windows VIsta literally...    2. As my Windows 7 was installed with 1GB RAM installed in the system, thus new config or changes in the memory locations are creating problems to the OS In this condition I? totally helpless.... Seeking help and suggestions and technical informations regarding this RAM issue......It? really URGENT...........................................PLZ HELP ME OUT..................................................... NOTE : Advanced Thnx to the suggestions and comments.......

Answer:URGENT !!! 800 MHz DDR2 2GB Works on 3000 Y410???? URGENT !!! Please help......

You need to test your new memory setup.While the combo of 800 memory and slower memory ispossible, not all combinations work correctly. Search web for memtest86 or memtest86+ You will need to make a bootable cd, or usb stick and boot from that.Let memtest run for a couple of passes at least, unlesserrors show up. Then you know the chips will not work together.

Hey everyone, I'm new to the forum, but I have a very pressing issue with my windows 7 laptop. It is a HP DV7 Entertainment PC. It is a little more than three years old (i think).

Anyway. So here's the issue:

Recently, I was going through my Registry on my personal account. On my computer I have two different accounts. One for me, which has admin privileges, while the other is a standard account, that I let my family use.

When I was in my registry, I noticed that the username for my account under Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SAM\SAM\Domains\Account\Users\Names was different from the one on my directory. The name shown when I log into Windows is my first name, however the directory name (the same one for the registry) is a nickname of mine.

So what I wanted to do was to make name under the registry (and hopefully the one under the directory the same), so I renamed the Key Name to the name shown when I log on.

Afterwards, I logged off my computer, and when I got to the Logon Screen, my account, the one with admin privileges, was not there. Only the second account, the standard.

I have longed on to the standard account, and tried to rename the registry key back to the original name, however, I don't have admin privileges, and I am unable to do so.

Normally, I would have just restored my registry to an earlier time, using a registry backup from a couple days ago, however, those we all saved under the documents of my admin account, which I can not access thro... Read more

Its sort of a long post, so i'm going to just jump right in.

I recently upgraded my hard drive to a Western Digital Cavier SE 160 G. I had windows on another HD but thought it would go smoothly, so just disgarded it. The HD was a RMA so it didn't come with a boot disc like the previous one, but I lost the origanal. I went to western digitals site and downloaded the files that are apperently on the floppy and made a floppy. When I booted off the windows XP OEM disc everything went fine untill it ask if I had any raid drivers or anything to install, press 's', so I do. After I hit 's' is says that it cant find file txtsetup.oem. To make a long story short I went to MSI, motherboard, and downloaded some files that it apperently needed for drivers, but the problem is both manufactures files cant fit in the same floppy, problem. So I mix and match files on the floppy to satisfy setup so it can find all the files. So, when i'm at the same instal of man. drivers I press 's' and I choose the Windows XP controller and hit 'enter'. Then it goes back to the same 'to install drivers page' saying that windows will load the following ***, to continue hit enter, i do.

The problem occurred when I made a standard user account and through that i redirected to the admin profile under c:/Users/xxxx and i right clicked the profile>properties>security> and i removed the standard account access to that admin folder and got some "Access denied error". After i logged off and login into the admin account, i got the error "settings.ini is being used by another process" from windows sidebar and windows sidebar was not working. After realizing that, i login with the standard account and wasn't having that problem........then i went to system restore and noticed "all my system restore points are gone". I got pissed and boot into safe mode and still the same thing, there was no system restore. I was able to get rid of the settings.ini problem by disabling UAC.

Movie maker cannot save the movie to the specific location. Verify That the original source files used in your movie are still available, that the saving location is still available, and that there is enough free space available, and then try again.

I haven't moved the files that i imported into movie maker. I have enough space and the location is available. so the only thing left that could be wrong is the source files. how can i get the movie maker to recognized the files.

I did edit the beginning and ends of some files so they blend together in movie maker. the files in movie maker are around 1 second shorter then the files that it is associated with in the folder.

Hi Guys,

This is quite a long story, So let me get straight to the point.

On my Dell Optiplex 360 Computer (Windows 7-Ultimate) I partitioned the hard drive to make space for another windows installation. I then installed Windows Vista Ultimate on it.

All of that went successfully but after a while it became useless for me and my computer.
I then uninstalled Window Vista and deleted the partition so i would have one partition on my hard drive (Windows 7).

So then every time i started up the PC it would load boot manager and it would ask me if i would like to boot to Windows Vista or Windows 7. I had deleted Windows Vista from my computer so i thought it shouldn't be there.

Then, i found this program that deletes the boot option (As in it deletes Windows Vista off from the boot manager). So then i went ahead and deleted Windows Vista from the boot list. After, i just tested to see it would work, So i restarted my computer and it loaded the boot manager again.

And the problem is that i only have Windows Vista as an option instead of Windows 7 !
I tried to do everything to fix this but it never worked, and when i try to boot to Windows Vista it says that the boot file is missing (Thats because i deleted Windows Vista!!).

So then i put my Window 7 Install Disk in the CD drive and the CD Drive was making a loud buzzing noise. I opened the case and it was literally broken.

So all i need to know is how i can get my option to boot to Windows 7 on my Boot Manager !!?

I used an ethernet cable to connect to the router and turned wireless back on. I hadn't used the wireless since then as I went on holiday a couple of hours after. Low and behold I get back and wireless isn't working, I have tried restarting the router manually, restarting the router through the control console, reconfiguring the router from factory settings. Wireless just won't work. The router is a belkin G+ router

Dear Forum Members,
 
My computer seems to be heavily infested with something very unpleasant.  A lot (but not all) my of software is not working, or cannot be opened (e.g. Outlook) or comes up with the message "the item referred to by this shortcut cannot be accessed you may not have the appropriate permission"  I have looked at various on-line sites to find a solution, but haven't found much that addresses this problem specifically.  The things I have tried didn't deliver the desired help.  Any ideas, anyone ???  You'll have my eternal gratitude if this can be solved without major surgery (like re-installing my Windows 7).  Would it be helpful if I upgraded to Windows 10?  Or would Windows 10 become similarly infected with this bug?
 
By the way - this is a general question - if I were to upgrade, would I loose all my programs and documents currently on my laptop in the process?
 
Thank you for reading thus far.  I'm looking forward to hearing from you!  Kind regards - AndreasO
 

Answer:Urgent help needed

"...Would it be helpful if I upgraded to Windows 10?"  Upgrading to Windows 10 with your current OS having problems will probably not help solve those problems, such might simply "transfer" to your new OS.
"...if I were to upgrade, would I lose all my programs and documents currently on my laptop in the process..."
If the current OS is in good working order, then an upgrade normally does not do away with installed programs -- unless you make a few wrong choices during the upgrade/install process.  Documents - toss up, many have had no problems, some have had a few problems.
** After everything is fixed within your current OS -- before upgrading, make at least one if not two full images of your OS and data partitions onto at least one if not two external HDs **

Question: Urgent Help Needed

Hi Guys, I hope to God that you's can help.

Heres the story, my computer out of the blue has just stopped loading. I will describe what is happening:
I will turn on the computer and it will load normally past all the BIOS stuff - then it will begin a 'chkdsk c:' saying that it needs to check this 'NTFS' file for consistancy.
It is always succesful with this check and then moves onto the the classic windows xp loading screen. That works fine then, BANG, it stops loading.... I don't think it is freezing as I can still move the mouse.
If I leave it for long enough it will come up with a diologue box saying something along the lines of 'Windows needs to be activated'. And this does not allow me to get past this blue laoding screen.
I then restart the comp, and it just goes through the same process.
Other info:
I CANNOT access SAFE MODE! It takes me to a log in menu saying my name, Phil and Administrator and if I click any of them I encounter this message 'Windows needs to be activated'.
I checked my BIOS page and posted the info on another forum (which wasn't too helpful if I do say so myself) and they said nothing with out of the ordinary with temperature etc.
If this helps, I did the day before these problems started when I turned on my comp it said there was no keyboard plugged in, this was a USB keyboard so I just swapped it for a old keyboard which wored a treat.

Answer:urgent help needed plz

Your Operating System and Internet Explorer versions are WAY out of date and represent a major security risk. After we fix your current problems, you must get updated. You need to install Service Pack 2 for security purposes.

You have not completed the READ ME, please follow the steps below:

Run ALL the steps in this Sticky thread READ & RUN ME FIRST Before Asking for Support


Make sure you check version numbers and get all updates.
Very Important: Make sure you tell us the results from running the tutorial...was anything found? Were you unable to complete any of the scans?...Were you unable to download any of the tools?...Did you do the on-line scans as suggested? etc.

After doing ALL of the above and you still have a problem, make sure you have booted to normal mode and run the steps in the below thread to properly use HijackThis and attach the log:

Please run the following:

Please create a new system restore point before running Malwarebytes Anti-Rootkit if you can.

MBAR tutorial

Download Malwarebytes Anti-Rootkit from HERE
Unzip the contents to a folder in a convenient location.
Open the folder where the contents were unzipped and run mbar.exe
Follow the instructions in the wizard to update and allow the program to scan your computer for threats.
Click on the Cleanup button to remove any threats and reboot if prompted to do so.
Wait while the system shuts down and the cleanup process is performed.
Perform another scan with Malwarebytes Anti-Rootkit to verify that no threats remain. If they do, then click Cleanup once more and repeat the process.
When done, please post the two logs produced they will be in the MBAR folder..... mbar-log.txt and system-log.txt

Note:
If no additional threats were found, verify that your system is now running normally, making sure that the following items are functional:
Internet access
Windows Update
Windows Firewall
If there are additional problems with your system, such as any of those listed above or other system issues, then run the fixdamage tool included with Malwarebytes Anti-Rootkit and reboot.
Verify that your system is now functioning normally.

I found it in the programs and features list and it is called "favorit" I thought it would be as simple as uninstalling it but when I click it, CMD runs for 1 second then closes and the program doesn't install

Does anyone know how I would get rid of it???
I've tried:
-Norton Virus Scans
-Ad-aware scans

Question: URGENT HELP NEEDED

So I live at home with my parents and they've been getting weird emails lately from 'MAILER-DAEMON' and 'Mail delivery system' saying we've got undelivered mail. We've been getting hundreds of these over about the last two weeks.

Today we got an email supposedly from Westnet, our internet provider. It said our mail system was infected with a virus and we needed to call their number in the email.

That was about an hour ago. My mother (against everything I told her) has since called the number and gotten 'live support' via the phone. It involved basically the guy on the phone taking complete control over our computer: mouse, keyboard, everything; and showing my mother what needed to be done.

it involved completely reconfiguring our modem, giving them our address and installing 'malwarebytes' off a site called Ninite.

My mother is insisting he's just a friendly support person who's doing this all for free. Am I being paranoid? Because we have a decent amount of fairly sensitive information on that computer.

Answer:URGENT HELP NEEDED

Look up the ISP's actual phone number and call them up to ask if anything like that had actually been going on, and if that's their actual procedure or not.

I would be hesitant as well.

Question: Urgent fix needed

Im a landlord, i have years of Books on my CPU. never been online with it ever. Completely isolated. After I finished monthly books it suddenly went off. Shut down without shut down.... Repowered nothing, checked power strip, nothing...

Immediately grabbed it and took to repair shop. Its a very important item, has ALL data from years back... plus its October and thats 9 months of this year entered... Backed up YES.... ON the same drive... LOL Dont laugh or scold me yet....

Repair shop says the fan stopped, causing the overheating of the motherboard and the Drive will not SPIN..... He can not retrieve any data....

WHAT is your suggestion and best options for this scenario.... Im all ears.

Hundreds or thousands of hours of data at risk.... I asked about removing the platter and reinserting into another drive.. said cant b done..

Thanks

Steve
 

Answer:Urgent fix needed

My initial thought is that would have to be one heck of an overheating to kill the HD along with the more vulnerable motherboard components. Is the shop reliable?

Have you tried the HD to another computer? That would be the simplest thing to confirm that it doesn't actually spin up. It just seems like too much of a coincidence that the HD has failed along with the motherboard. If you can wait for mail order something like this will make the connection externally but internal is not difficult.

If the HD really doesn't spin up at all, I don't have any suggestions. Professional data retrieval is extremely expensive ~$1000.

I have a small LAN. 2 workstations got infected with 'mmsvc32.exe' file which is a virus according to various antivirus companies. I have upto date norton antivirus but it does not detect it as a virus. I did online scanning from trendmicro that also does not detects it. Then I used 'Hijackthis' and i cleaned it. But it came back again when the machine restarted. I deleted the file from current running process, searched the files on machine and deleted and cleaned the registry also, but no use. It comes back again.

Answer:urgent help needed

Try booting to "Enable VGA mode" from the Windows Advanced Options menu.  From there reset display properties to desired values and reboot to "Normal" mode.Use the <F8> function key during system startup to access the Windows Advanced Options Menu.  Tap the <F8> key once or twice per second as you startup the computer (or immediately after POST completes and screen flashes black prior to displaying Windows XP logo with its processing bar display).From the Windows Advanced Options menu, use the up/down arrow keys to select "Enable VGA mode" and press <Enter> key.

Yesterday I decided to install the latest Windows Updates. After doing so, I experienced some lag and some programs wasnt working, I left it. This morning I decided I wanted to uninstall the Updates, I started to do so, but they only removed 1 by 1 requiring a restart every time. Finally I got fed up and decided to do a System Restore to the previous Friday (16th). After that, when my computer restarts, I get just a black screen and my cursor, I can move my cursor, but cannot select anything. Ive tried repairing and reinstalling Windows XP by booting from the CD, but it hasnt worked. In the middle of my first attempt to reinstall Windows XP, System Restore appeared and said the restore was successful. I carried on with the installation and have tried repairing a fresh start of Windows Aswell. Again, the same blank screen with the cursor. Ive tried entering in safe mode and last good settings. Safe mode loads up but I cant select anything, there is no start menu. The same for safe mode with networking and safe mode with command prompt. I really dont want to have to format my drive again, I have thousands of files which I dont have backed up, tons of software and customisations. Please help me!

Question: Urgent Help Needed

Holy ****, hey folks. Got a real problem. Today i booted up my Computer only to notice that it said my CPU was running at 1.2ghz, this is NOT right as it normally runs at 2080ghz (being an AMD XP 2800+)

What the hell is going on? Both Everest and DXDIAG are showing this, please help me.

I recently updated my BIOS but there were no errrors. Also, you may know if you've been following my threads that my CPU was overheating not that long ago could my BIOS have dropped the speed to 1.2ghz to 'cool' the PC down? My PSU is also not supplying enough power and so ordered a new one, which should arrive tommorow.

Will adding my new PSU set the CPU clock back to 2080ghz, god i hope so.

C'mon, need your help desperately.

:O :O :O

Answer:Urgent Help Needed

Hello,

It seems that your FSB has been lowered.... It should be 12.5 x 166 for an AMD Athlon XP 2800+.

Post a screenshot or a report of the Motherboard page to show the Front Side Bus Properties and Memory Bus Properties.

Perhaps your BIOS hasn't detected your CPU correctly. Try resetting your BIOS, or see if you can correct the FSB in BIOS.

Oh and...how many watts is your current PSU? If it's 400W that is more, than enough...

hi guys, i really need help. I cant find the stereo mix in my pc

I previously used win xp (installed the drivers from the cd) and had the stereo mix.
now, I'm using windows 7 64 Bit and I didn't install anything from the CD because i thought it's already supported.

Now I can't find my stereo mix. I checked the disconnected and disabled devices, still can't find anything

I'm using ASUS PK5PL-AM motherboard.
Help please

I can listen to music and stuff, but I can't use my microphone

PS: i was trying to install the drivers in my win 7, unfortunately my cd doesn't support win 7 OS, and i can't find any update for the drivers..

Answer:Urgent help needed please! :(

The lack of the Stereo Mix is a major complaint of many. It's the driver that is usually the issue. Check with the sound chip vendor for a Win 7 driver. e.g. if it's RealTek then check with RealTek, if it's Sigmatel check with IDT (SigmaTel is now IDT). But, ultimately you may have to install a Win 7 sound card that does have the feature you want, several on the Dell forum that have upgraded old XP systems to Win 7, and there are no updated drivers, have had to do that.

Hello Buzz1443,

I do still see malware in the logs you posted. If you still require assistance, I'd like to see the current state of your system.

Download Deckard's System Scanner (DSS) to your Desktop.

What DSS will do:create a new System Restore point in Windows XP and Vista.
clean your Temporary Files, Downloaded Program Files, and Internet Cache Files, and also empty the Recycle Bin on all drives.
check some important areas of your system and produce a report for your analyst to review.
DSS automatically runs HijackThis for you, but it will also install and place a shortcut to HijackThis on your desktop if you do not already have HijackThis installed.

Note: You must be logged onto an account with administrator privileges.Close all applications and windows.
Double-click on dss.exe to run it, and follow the prompts.
When the scan is complete, two text files will open - main.txt <- this one will be maximized and extra.txt <-this one will be minimized
Copy (Ctrl+A then Ctrl+C) and paste (Ctrl+V) the contents of main.txt in your next reply.
Please attach extra.txt to your post.
To attach a file to a new post, simplyClick the[Manage Attachments] button under Additional Options > Attach Files on the post composition page, and
copy and paste the following into the "Upload File from your Computer" box:C:\Deckard\System Scanner\extra.txt

My friends computer is having major problems, when she clicks on any programs (Firefox, IE, AVG, ANYTHING!) they dont open, unless she clicks them loads of times! I have done a bit of research and it sounds like a virus, but i have no idea which or how to find/remove it. I have included a hijack this log, but i dont know how to read these things, any help would be great, she needs this computer for university studies! Thanks

Answer:Urgent help needed!!!

Hi, alnic123

Welcome.

Download SDFix and save it to your Desktop.

Double click SDFix.exe and it will extract the files to %systemdrive%
(Drive that contains the Windows Directory, typically C:\SDFix)

Please then reboot your computer in Safe Mode by doing the following :
Restart your computer
After hearing your computer beep once during startup, but before the Windows icon appears, tap the F8 key continually;
Instead of Windows loading as normal, the Advanced Options Menu should appear;
Select the first option, to run Windows in Safe Mode, then press Enter.
Choose your usual account.
Running SDFix in Safe Mode:

Open the extracted SDFix folder and double click RunThis.bat to start the script.
Type Y to begin the cleanup process.
It will remove any Trojan Services and Registry Entries that it finds then prompt you to press any key to Reboot.
Press any Key and it will restart the PC.
When the PC restarts the Fixtool will run again and complete the removal process then display Finished, press any key to end the script and load your desktop icons.
Once the desktop icons load the SDFix report will open on screen and also save into the SDFix folder as Report.txt
(Report.txt will also be copied to Clipboard ready for posting back on the forum).
Finally paste the contents of the Report.txt back on the forum with a new HijackThis log

Question: Urgent help needed

Hi friends, my computer is in serious trouble. It works OK when I start it but the moment I connect to the internet, it restarts immediately without any warning. It seems I have a serious virus problem.

I am unable to run the online scans but the other logs are attached. I have run C Cleaner, Counterspy and Spybot.

I have not attached the logs of Counterspy since it shows absolutely no malware on it's scans. Same for Spybot.

Chaslang,if you are seeing this, please help again. You helped to get one of my computers up and running, please help solve the issues of this computer too.


Edit by chaslang: Inline HJT log removed. READ & RUN ME sticky not followed.
 

Answer:Urgent help needed

Since you have already been here before, you should be aware of the rules and should be following them.

No inline logs
I see that MegauploadToolbar was install around Dec 30th. When did problems begin? Is this toolbar something that was knowingly installed.

Delete the below files in safe mode:
C:\WINDOWS\10523110096.exe
C:\WINDOWS\service32.exe
C:\WINDOWS\system32\97E4651266.sys

Everything else was clean. Problems may not be malware.

I have downloaded the W10 ISO file onto a USB stick, in preparation for carrying out a clean install. I have then rebooted my pc and pressed F12 and chose the USB stick as the boot up method.

However, when I have done this I am still getting a black screen with a blinking curser in the top left hand corner. It would seem that I am still doing something wrong, can someone point me in the right driection please.

Answer:More urgent help needed please

Just an ISO file on the USB is not going to let you boot from it. You have to make a bootable USB first. You have to use something like Rufus: Rufus - Create bootable USB drives the easy way to do that.
If your MB doesn't have UEFI bios this one: Windows USB/DVD Download Tool - Microsoft Store is easier to use.

Hi, i am a n00b at computers, and i delted something from my registy thinkin it was a .exe loader for a trojan or someting but now all my .exe's wont open! not even MsPaint or anything!! is thier anyway i could fix this without Reformatting my HD?? thnx.. btw im using Windows XP Home on a P4 2.8 1gb ram

EDIT: When i try open a .exe i get this error message

"c:\\WINDOWS\System32\****.exe" (*** being the program)

This file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action. Create an association in the folder options Control Panel.

Answer:Urgent Help Needed Please!

boot the PC and press F8 continually until the boot screen arrives, if you look at the list of choices choose the one that says 'last known configuration that worked', or probably a more certain option is go for the restore to earlier date, choose a date before you messed up the registry and that should get things running again.
As a noob there are a number of things you need to know and some you will learn, you have just demonstrated one of Windows strict unwritten laws, never change anything in the registry unless you are absolutely sure of what you are doing and then make a back up of the registry before you start so any problems can be rectified.(actually you can just back up the one key you are going to change\delete by selecting 'export' from the right click menu, save it somewhere obvious and if things dont go according to plan you have only to click the .reg file a couple of times to import the key and data back where it came from.
hope you get sorted.
(BTW being new is nothing very terrible, everyone was once and most peeps have made the same sort of mistake.)

Answer:Urgent help needed!!!

You have wiped your computer ? By this I mean restored it to its factory settings ?

If you have formatted the drive then this is no longer a malware problem. It sounds to me like an issue with the drivers. I suggest you head on over to the software or hardware forum and ask in there, there are more people there who can help you.

I have stored some really important work on a 128mb memory stick (/pen drive). It has been workin fine till today wen i pluggd it in and windows says"USB device not recognized - One Of the usb devices on this computer has malfunctioned and windows does not recognize it." Wot can i do. wihtout this work im really in a mess. I thort i ad backup copies as well but i didnt. wot can i do

Answer:Help Needed Urgent!!!

"wot can i do"1). Use a thread title that actually describes your problem, NOT "Help Needed Urgent!!!"2). Try the memory stick in another PC. If that doesn't recognise it, you have probably lost the files on the memory stick.3). Use English rather than text-speak; which not all of us understand.

I have been contacted from a client who stupidly opened an attachment that appeared to be sent from UPS parcel service. This has then installed a few different viruses on the system. Using AVG Free it detects the following

Braviax.exe and Ntos.exe which are files infected. It reports i have various trojan horses. I am accessing the machine remotely at the minute but i am visiting the site in the next hour or so.

I have run a hijackthis log which is below

Hello,
I own a emachines T3522
I have a very annoying problem that is really making me very upset i am getting a pop up as soon as i turn my system on stating "msmsgs.exe-unable to locate component and in the field it says this application has failed to start. There's a whole bunch of other errors. I press ok like 20 times and they seem to restart over and over again.
I also have the recovery disk but when It loading it gives me this blue screen with C0000135 ( unable to locate component)

Additional info from another thread
I own a emachines "T3522 Destop"
This 'Unable To locate Component' crap is driving me crazy. When I log onto my guest account it gives me this error.
Setup.50.exe cannot find comres.dll. That also happens on the new admin account I created. There's only one account that this doesn't happen to and it my orignal account but on my original account almost all the other programs gives me unable to locate component also such as MSN and others. I even tried to PC restore everything by inserting the emacines operating system disc. When I get to the loading part It gives me a blue screen with c0000135 unable to locate component In PC Restore???
I honestly need someone to help me on this asap.

Thank you
