internet browsers wont load, start menu wont open

Q: internet browsers wont load, start menu wont open

None of my internet browsers including Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, mozilla or the new one that comes with Windows 10 will open or load. Also when I click on my Windows start button it does nothing as well as the dialogue next to it that says I'm Cortana ask me anything. I have run Malwarebytes anti-malware and it has identified 0 threats. I have adware antivirus but it won't run. Any help would be appreciated thank you!

I have a friend's computer that is having problems loading any type of Web browser, along with most internet applications.

They are able to log onto msn messenger, yet games that require internet activity they cannot.

They are able to ping websites perfectly fine.

I did find this in the host file
which i erased and changed back to localhost

Any suggestions?

A:Internet Browsers, wont load...

Hi, the first thing i could think of is bad browser configuration or Malware.
Make sure that pc has antivirus and antispyware check if you can update and perform a full scan.

Then switch on pc, keep pressing f8, choose safe mode, log in as administrator
now Can you access the internet
Also in safe
click start then run type
inetcpl.cpl, click connection, then lan settings, make sure automatically detect settings i set, and make sure proxy server is not enabled.

Also find the firewall, in control panel, and temporary disable it.

Yesturday my vista was working great, and on the screen as i went to shut it down said "updating files do not shut down computer 3/3 100%" but it stayed like that for 4 hours, so i turn it off manualy once i turned it back on the next day it asked me for my password i put it in and as it was loading it was vey slow and would take 5-6 minutes for programs to load up.

Also when i go to click on like my internet it dont work, not even my games work, they try to load then freeze. So i did a scan on it and its still having this problem. After i got frustrated i went to shut it down again and it says "logging off" but stays like that for hours, so i have to manualy turn it off. Now with internet issue, it works in safe mode with connection, but not in my normal screen. WHY IS THIS DOING THIS?

I hope it's kosher to post a link to another post I made in the XP forum (I'm only doing this because someone suggested I do). I dont think I have a virus/malware problem, but maybe someone here will recognize it. I just finished running the a-squared command malware tool and all that it came up with was 19 cookies.

A:Failed To Load Dll, No Start Menu, Programs Wont Start, Etc

Please try using this to repair the broken registry entry that may be causing this.Download Autoruns, search for the related entry and then delete it.Create a new folder on your hard drive called AutoRuns (C:\AutoRuns) and extract (unzip) the file there. (click HERE if you're not sure how to do this.)Open the folder and double-click on autoruns.exe to launch it.Please be patient as it scans and populates the entries.When done scanning, it will say Ready at the bottom.Scroll through the list and look for a startup entry related to the file(s) in the error message.Right-click on the entry and choose delete.Reboot your computer and see if the startup error returns.

Hello everyone,
For the past three days, I have had a problem with my PC.
It will show I have internet connection, however, no matter what browser I use, whether Firefox, IE or AOL, they will say no internet connection. I decided to disable my Windows Firewall, and even tho it still does it, sometimes I'm able to get online. When I cant get online, I have to reboot my PC and then I'm able to access internet and all works out but then will just freak out and not work. Now, yesterday, I also had problems with my 1394 bus IEEE driver, but was able to fix that and I'm not even sure what happened to begin with it. Today, I decided to remove AOL, I cant stand it anymore anyways. I also downloaded "Advanced system care" and did a full system scan, and it said it fixed a TON of stuff. I also did a full virus scan and also a complete boot scan, where I saw that my Java had some corrupted files and also another program, and I did a malware/spyware scan and with everything, there were no virus' and no maleware/spyware at all. Thank God! However, I still haven't been able to pinpoint why its just losing connection and I just cant seem to find any help. My drivers for my modem are up to date as well. I usually just use my Firefox and what will happen is that I'm online, and when I click a tab to open up a new window, it will just say loading...continuously and then it will say theres no internet connection. Does anyone have any ideas as to ... Read more


Hi SuesAcct -I also downloaded "Advanced system care" and did a full system scan, and it said it fixed a TON of stuff.Downloading IoBit System Care will always find TONS of problems - The program is designed to "find problems" , (even if there are not many) -Did you have any Antivirus program installed previous to this ?? If so which program was it ??You are usually better with free Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and Free SUPERAntiSpyware programs for malware detection -Do you do regular maintaining like defrag , clearing temp files , etc. that will help your system -Have you got XP Service Pack 3 installed and all Microsoft updates also ??These things will help for a start - Next run Check disk program by opening Run Box and copy / paste this code in, close all programs and let it check your system -CMD /C ECHO Y|CHKDSK C: /R | SHUTDOWN /R /T 30The code will reboot your computer in 30 seconds after you click OK then run a full 5 stage check/repair on the disk -On average this takes 30 to 45 mins but can take longer if errors are found and fixed -Thank You -

Today I noticed that I could not open my start menu with neither the windows button, ctrl + esc, or a click of the mouse. I've also had a problem the last couple of days saving/opening files in one of the programs I used to make music. I tried to go into safe mode to do system restore, but the safe mode didn't boot. It scrolled all the system files on the screen but then just stopped and nothing happened.

So, I tried the other option (forget what it's called) that lets you perform various other system restoration tasks. I brought up the system restore screen from there, but got an error that said something about corrupt files so it could not perform the restore. I checked again, and all my restore points had been deleted.

Lastly, when I click computer, all the drives are blank with no names beside them, only the icons. I can still click them and they seem to be functioning normally, so I don't know if there is a relation to this. I don't know if some registry files were deleted or if there is some other problem. I didn't notice the start menu/safe mode/blank icon issues until I just recently installed the latest windows update.

Sorry if this seemed a little long winded, but I would appreciate help from anyone.

I've had SO much trouble with my Norton Internet Security of late. I've used the program for three years now with no dramas however, around a week ago it started only wanting to open when it felt like it! Then a few days later our computer received the virus backdoor.tidserv. I believe its been removed as I have used Malwarebytes and SDFix. Everything is now back on track EXCEPT Norton! When Norton started running its live update program it simply shutdown - never to start up again only stating - 'this norton product won't open' lol, thats it. It did have a download link to Symantec's website however, it has done nothing. Still not opening I wanted to uninstall HOWEVER, it freezes on the uninstall! I tried the Norton Removal Tool (lol FROM Symantec) however, this for some reason wont allow me to download stating something about Ports FTP.. I hae no idea about all that. So, I'm now here .. If somebody has an idea ANY WHICH WAY to tackle this be it a better program to get rid of Norton or.. how to fix the ports .. maybe I have a virus I dont know about??

HELP! please... Also, if I do go around getting rid of Norton would anyone know a free internet security system to tie me over til I get to the shops??

I am experiencing the following very strange intermittent problems and evil behavior in XP.

My Start Menu sometimes only appears for a split second when clicked and will not stay displayed. Also minimised apps. wont maximise and apps. and short cuts on the desktop wont launch when double left clicked and instead show properties as if they were right clicked!!

I have done the following to try and resolve these issues.

1. Updated from SP1 to SP 2 as well as all the security updates.

2. Ran Adaware and Spybot to find any unwelcome visitors. Adaware only found one minor issue.

3. Ran Symantec Antivirus which found and quarantined several viruses.

4. Ran WinDoctor which found and said it resolved quite a few issues.

This is really a pain as it makes the system virtually unusable except for when it is behaving which is rare.

Would be grateful for any suggestions, solutions, incantations or workarounds for this issue/s

Kind regards

Iv gotten a pesky worm or some spam program and than had it removed with another program that searched it and got rid of it nicely. After that I think there’s something wrong with browsers since they don't load any pages but only in safe mode they do. Everything else such as streaming P2P programs seem to work. I tried both Explorer and FireFox.

A:Browsers wont load page but everything else connects

No difference.
I did not have System Restore On during infection and removal. Plus during removal it was suggested to keep i toff, so System Restore wouldn't play much of a part here since I dought itl have a previous good time to restore to.

The removal program I used was Smitfraudfix.
The infection was "SpyGuard" that was installed through ActiveX maybe or Explorer at least from some website.
So Im not sure if its Port 80 or what thats blocked...
Just browsing wont load pages, cuz its waiting for a reply...
Other connections seem fine.

HOWEVER!  If I load this with torbrowser the initial website itself loads just fine. It of course wont load the game because of the security settings in torbrowser (which I could bypass if I chose but what would be the point from there?)

It started with a curious inabilityting in Firefox while open, not to be able to open any links on a web page - just stalled at "connectingfox was reopened it would give the error message " already open"

So then I would switch to IE which would refuse to open as well with no attending error message.
Not to be deterred, I downloaded
Chrome which worked briefly - then it too refused to open.

Now all 3 browsers are refusing to open.

Ok here it is.

I ve downloaded Avast A/V and said there is a conflict with my ZoneAlerm Firewall.

After that, a message in avast appeared that a .dll was trojan in my system.

I ran Spyware Doctor and removed it.

After that, nothing will make pages to appear and especially Yahoo. It won't open on I.E. (ver. 6), or Firefox (ver. 2)!!

Though my msn, p2p, torrents are working very smoothly; and other 2 pcs on WAN are opening everything fine.

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"

Before when I ran it, I'm pretty sure it let me restart and booted into windows, not now.
Next I tried bootrec.

Does the same thing more or less happen using Internet Explorer and/or Firefox?  After the fresh reinstall, what, if any, 3rd party monitoring and/or security programs were installed?  When the BC regulars [techs] appear in here, follow their advice, they won't steer you wrong

A: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

When i experienced the follow error.

I deleted the file named "Program" in the C: Drive to fix it. (This also fixed java not working or even launching with a web browser application)

A:Java Crashes browsers and its control panel wont open

See if deleting temp files in all browsers clears the Java cache ...

Download TFC by Old Timer TFC - Temp File Cleaner by OldTimer - Geeks to Go Forums and save it to your desktop.
Save any unsaved work. TFC will close ALL open programs including your browser!
Double-click on TFC.exe to run it. If you are using Vista/Windows 7 right-click on the file and choose Run As Administrator.
Click the Start button to begin the cleaning process and let it run uninterrupted to completion.
Important! If TFC prompts you to reboot, please do so immediately. If not prompted, manually reboot the machine anyway to ensure a complete clean.

TFC (Temp File Cleaner) will clear out all temp folders for all user accounts (temp, IE temp, java, FF, Opera, Chrome, Safari), including Administrator, All Users, LocalService, NetworkService, and any other accounts in the user folder. It also cleans out the %systemroot%\temp folder and checks for .tmp files in the %systemdrive% root folder, %systemroot%, and the system32 folder (both 32bit and 64bit on 64bit OSs). It shows the amount removed for each location found (in bytes) and the total removed (in MB). Before running, it will stop Explorer and all other running apps. When finished, if a reboot is required the user must reboot to finish clearing any in-use temp files.

Hiya all,
My problem is that I rebooted my computer and it now wont start up. I did not change anything and the reason I rebooted was because of a network issue unrelated to the computer.

So here is some details.
gigabyte mobo (dual bios) ga81pe775 pro
4 x 512mb ddr400 ram
sata and ata hdds (4 in total)
pentium 4 3ghz processor
I removed all of the ram and inserted one stick in slot one to make sure it was not the issue.Retry loading and it does the same thing.

It loads up and freezes when it gets to the memory test. I tried each of the sticks of ram individually but no problem.All display the bios menu and then it stops.
Does anyone have any suggestions or solutions or theories of what might be happening?
Thanks for your time.

Recently I am unable to open the Store app. After a small Windows 10 update, I have been unable to access the store. When I open the start menu and click the icon, it is unresponsive. Also when I go through my apps, it wont open when clicked there. I even had it pinned to my toolbar and the icon disappeared but left space and when I clicked there, I got an error message. Also, as I was typing this, my toolbar began being difficult. Certain things like the start icon, the calculator icon, or the internet explorer icon wont open when clicked. But the google chrome and the file explorer icons work well. I am not sure if there is a way for me to update the Store app or get it to launch through a browser or do I have to wait till another Windows 10 update to fix my problem.

Thank you for any advice or help in advance.

Hey all...
I got a similar thread in the web forum but thought it could fit in here also.

Hoping someone could steer me in the right direction. On my other computer neither firefox nor IE will access the internet. I have been having problems with Zonealarm earlier and shortly after, my browsers stopped responding to the web. I have uninstalled Zonealarm now and disabled all firewalls and AV programs that could be holding them back, but still a no go.

The thing that has me baffled is, I can ping websites and IP addresses successfully all day long in the terminal window. Even games that utilize the web work, but not my browsers. I have tried using the winsockxp fix. What do the browsers have in common that may prevent access to the web? Thanks anyone for the help.

Lots of memory .. Lots of free disk space.

No problem with my Internet Connection and I am almost sure that the problem is not virus or malware related.

(Can't be absolutely sure as you will understand after reading the rest of this post)

I am desperate!

I can't open any of my browsers.

Opening anything such as tools like malwarebytes, revo uninstaller, etc. etc. is iffy!?

There seems to be no logic in what and what will not open.

Some things will open like note pad and CCleaner (From the programs folder) but wont open from the desktop!?

Malwarebytes launches from the Programs folder but wont launch from the desktop!?

None of the browsers will open from the desktop, their respective folders or from the Programs folder!?

I am also getting access denied on a lot of system tools even though I am the Administrator!?

It is odd how I was finally able to get opera to launch.

I was able to get program accessories to open .. went into system tools and launched Windows Easy Transfer (don't ask).

When that window opened up .. I hit cancel and the message Are you Sure You Want To End The Transfer came up.

After clicking yes .. Opera opened!!??

In case anyone asks Hijack this or MiniToolBox wont open either!

Opera is my default browser so that is why upon canceling the Easy Transfer tool .. the page opens to opera!

Hello ElliottGenocide

Firstly do you have a system restore point available from before these problems occurred - System Restore
Can you remember what it was you changed in the registry.
Have a look through this,it has a copy of the default background and an application to change the logon background without having to touch the registry - Log On Screen - Change
I would also run this - SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker see if that helps.

Im at my wits end here. My friend brought her computer over so that I can work on it for her, but Ive hit a brick wall on this problem.

She cannot access the internet either through IE7 or Firefox, nor are any other programs able to connect. Shes running XP Pro, by the way. She could not at her house, nor can it here at my house. It detects the wifi just fine - thats not the issue.

I have rebooted and tested running her computer in safe mode w/network, and it connects via the browsers fine. That tells me theres a program loading on normal startup thats causing the interference, however I have gone through all of them and have yet to find the culprit.

The browsers connection settings are as they should be for a LAN, however either way its not just the browsers that cannot connect.

I have pinged... regular addresses.. like - I get responses quickly. I ping - full timeout. I ping google, I get a response. I ping

I have tried doing the ipconfig steps that include flush... registerdns... release... and renew... still nothing.

A:Disc Wont Load On Start Up

For booting the Windows CD, it may be that you need to change bios settings in order to get a boot. Shut your system down and power on, during POST (Power On Self Test - this is the bit before the Windows splash screen), press F2 lots, and the setup menu should load. If not, try the Delete key, then some other combination of mashing the function keys to get the right one.

How your Bios is laid out, depends on your motherboard, but the aim is to enable CD Boot, (usually simbolised with a tick against it), and prioritise it above Hard Drive. This will be on the main screen, or in a seperate boot menu, the commands for editing selections appear along the bottom.
I was looking around for something similar to your error and found;EN-US;328874

It seems whilst this is not exactly your situation it may be worth following
6. Click Start, and then click Run.
7. In the Open box, type the following command, and then click OK.

8. Click Yes, I want to telephone a customer service representative to activate Windows, and then click Next.
9. Click Change Product key.
10. Type the new product key in the New key boxes, and then click Update.

If you are returned to the previous window, click Remind me later, and then restart the computer.

We've now had three different Windows XP systems come in here for this problem so I wanted to see if anyone else was seeing this. It has happened with both Windows XP Home and Windows XP Media Center (based off Professional) systems. Two were Dells, one was a custom built one.

After installing a fresh copy of Windows and loading drivers, everything works fine. After doing the first batch of available Windows updates, the system reboots, but you cannot click anything on the Start menu, taskbar, etc. If you hit CTRL-ALT-DEL and open the task manager (either automatically as in XP Home, or by clicking Task Manager on the screen that comes up with MCE/Pro), you can then close the task manager, and everything runs appropriately. It doesn't matter how long the system sits there, this continues to happen until you go through that process.

I assumed we had a bad Windows image here at first, but after it started doing it with a whole different version, now I'm skeptical of one of the updates, and wanted to see if anyone was experiencing something similar.

A:Need to load Task Manager before Start menu will open


A few questions

Are they being brought to you with this problem or is it a problem that you are having with installs that you do?

Are you using the same mouse for all of these installs?
When I do installs for customers, I use an old mouse and keyboard on my bench (my KVM caused problems once so I stopped using it for this).

Where are you getting the copy of XP from and what updates are you referring to? Is it when you update to SP3 or something else?

I have a Win2Kpr0SP4 workstation that has a busted Start Menu. When a domain user logs on, she gets her normal roaming profile and desktop etc, but as soon as she clicks on the Start Menu, the actual button depresses but no menu pops up. Everything else works fine

Local and other domain users on this same PC have no problems.

Ive recreated her local and roaming profile.

Anywhere else i can check?...have searched MS KNowledgebase with not much success...

rather not rebuild it if i can help it.

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.

so basically, found a random desktop outside the dumpster i guess someone was getting rid of, and i was like, eh, looks pretty new, lemme take it in and check it out. only thing missing was the front piece and the hdd,everything else was in tact. so i figured lemme take the hdd out of my crappy computer i use and try to hook it up to the "new" one. well my old one has an ide setup, and this one is a sata hookup. i unplugged the ide cable and power from the cd/dvd drive in the new machine, set my ide hdd to master, and plugged it into the emachine. i booted everything up, and it came to the boot menu to choose, safe mode, safe mode with networking, normal, ect.. so i choose normal, emachine logo pops up, starts loading, i see hit f2 or f10 in the bottom right hand corner, the usual, but then it just goes back to the boot menu asking for safe mode, normal, ect... i went into the bios and i see it recognizes my hdd and everything else looks normal.

anyone have any idea why it wont boot up. im on my old pc now. i just popped the hdd back in and booted on up no problem. also, just to put it out there, i do have a few external hdd's i could possibly use as an internal hdd i think.

old pc is a dell with ide hdd
new pc is an emachine t3604 with sata hdd hookup
i already tried to boot into safe mode, safe mode with networking, and last working configuration, but it always takes me back to the boot menu. this is with the old hdd in the "new" emachine.

You cannot move a drive with XP to another machine without reinstalling ( or a repair install if you are lucky )

To test the machine ability to boot, try booting from a installation cd

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 didnt care much for the software and did some research, mostly onthis site and found many complaints about the toolbars being downloaded with instalation of chrome and lots of difficulty getting rid of the toolbars despite uninstalling chrome. I found a solution that called for uninstalling and reinstalling chrome and th... Read more

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.

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.

So I turn my computer off one day only to find it wont start the next day. I open the case up and see the led is on. I flip the switch on the power supply off then on and quickly press the power button. My computer starts but the following time I shut down the computer it again wont start and now the led is blinking. I've never had any issues like this before, any help would be appreciated.

I don't routinely use many usb devices, only my mouse and keyboard and every now and then my ipod. I figure the issue is likely either the power supply or the motherboard. The ps is almost two years old while the motherboard is only about three months old.

A:Computer wont start, power supply wont start, blinking led

It sounds to me like your PSU is the problem, get a hold of another and plug it to your computer and see if that will make it start, if it doesn't it might be BOTH your motherboard and PSU. A bad PSU will burn a motherboard.

Last week windows xp had a popup error stating that I had "worm.win32.netsky" and "trogan spm/lx". I used norton tools to remove the "worm.win32.netsky". After that, I used the norton emergency disk to boot in safemode to do a full system scan. The scan found nothing. Since then windows xp will not start up. I get the load screen to select the user. Once I select any user it says "loading user settings" and then right after "saving user settings" and stays at the user select screen. What should I do?

can start my pc up and it will get to the system start up blue screen, but it wont load that screen. i left it for like an hour and still nothing.
I tried going in in safe mode and this worked, but i need an internet connection
I thought maybe it has too much stuff on that account, ie hogging memory so i deleted a lot of stuff like 30 gigs of stuff but it still wont load
I need the internet connection at home so i tried going into safe mode with networking (i think that gives a net connection but maybe it emans something else)
i have ran spy bot s&d and deleted everything, also 2 other programmes + ms anti sypware new beta
thinking it was a virus but it cant be.

i tried a lot of the options you get in F8 but only the normal safe mode seems to work. i cant do a system restore as i deleted them yesterday as they were like a few gigs of stuff on it and i cant seem to find my xp cd so i cant reinstall windows, at least for 4 weeks as ican get a copy when i get home.

I have a windows 7 notebook that won't load into windows or load safe mode successfully its ends with a black screen and hangs forever. System restore wont even fix it. What command can I use to troubleshoot this other than reinstalling windows. Thanks

A:windows 7 wont start up or load safe mode successfully

If you have an install disk and can access Setup (possibly tapping F2 as you switch on) to change the Boot order to CD/DVD before the HDD, then insert the disk - Save and Exit, it will then reboot up with it and you will be prompted to press any key to boot from CD/DVD.

Select the Repair option and then Startup Repair in the Recovery Environment.

It will give you the option to select a restore point which you can opt for or pass on that and let it complete the Startup Repair.

If it reports that it was unable to repair, then you could give the restore point a try.

I had this problem just yesterday and found the solution (i dont know if its the same cause for the problem in all reports but its the same symptoms as mine for sure, i have XP tou)

here is a closed thread about it that didnt reach a solution, i hope mine works for most ppl that had this problem (i hated it lol)

Anyway the thing is i downloaded FileAssassin in someone else's laptop and tried to kill the only process in my task bar that I didnt recognize (after looking for it it, before erasing it, it was one of nod32's dll) earler in the week my nod32 installation froze mid way tru, I didnt mind it but when i noticed earlier today that i had ekrn in my taskbar i tried uninstalling it but i couldnt (before i thought it didnt install so i didnt bother again with nod because i was busy), thats when i downloaded FileAssassin.

FileAssassin couldnt kill it by normal means so instead i set it with FA to erase it upon reboot/reset, all the esset files that i couldnt delete normally, i think it amounted to 4dlls in my C Esset folder and my C Windows Prefetch folder

they all had EKRN in the file name so they were easy to spot using windows's search function.

After that all my browser functions were restored. ekrn is nod's firewall afaik, but it still surprises me that it started running even tou my install froze at midpoint.

Once I start up Windows it will go to the Desktop, only load up a few Icons for the programs. The rest will still show just stay white. And wont let me know anything after that. I can still use the mouse. But nothing will open or anything.

For some reason my internet wont load a few sites and its not my computer because i have two computers on the same network and they both wont load the same sites Im not sure what it is one computer is on a wired connection one is wireless if it matters. oh and when i turn my firewall off it helps with one or two sites but not all of them

A:Internet wont load certain websites

I experienced this frustrating problem. Thought it must be DNS problem. Tried all manner of solutions including flushing the DNS cache. Eventually checked the router&#8217;s settings and found that a built in parental control thingy which blocks sites based on key words was activated. It was causing the problem even though there were no key words entered! It is a Sky sagem router/modem by the way.
