Q: I used Windows Defender Offline now Windows 7 Home Premuim won't load

I ran MSE on this computer and it picked up the Trojan Alureon. It said it couldn't completely unistall it and I had to use Windows Defender Offline. I installed WDO on my USB and ran it. Now I can't get windows to load and Startup Repair can't fix the problem. I've run it a few times and I've tried System Restore.

Preferred Solution: I used Windows Defender Offline now Windows 7 Home Premuim won't load

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

A: I used Windows Defender Offline now Windows 7 Home Premuim won't load

Welcome to the forum,

Sorry to hear about your troubles, unfortunately this is an all too common occurrence after using WDO.

I'm requesting this be moved to the security section where our experts will see it sooner.

After scanning with Microsoft Security Essentials, I was informed that an infection existed that required me to run Windows Defender Offline. 
The Windows Defender scan revealed a total of 30 items which needed to be cleaned.  The only name I recall was Alureon Trojan.  I ran Defender and recevied the message that the clean up was successful.
However, I am now unable to load windows.  It fails over and over.  I have tried to repair via start up repair and using the reformatting option via Dell Data Safe, and restoring to an earlier point.  None of these has been successful.  It will begin to load Windows then stop and tell me it can not load. 
 
I ran farbar/recover/scan tool and received the attached log:
 
I would appreciate any assistance.

well im kind of new to these fourms, and was wondering if I could find an anwser to this problem.
my laptop is a Dell inspiron 1545
model no:pp41l
with windows vista home premium pre installed
the computer is pretty new it was bought at the beginning of this year.
I recently installed Daemon tools v2.5 and Company of Heroes (however the problem started like a month afterwards)
It began when I ran mozilla firefox and it began to crash
Problem: my computer starts up but freezes right away whenever I click anything, it does not even allow me to turn it off or restart it.
It does not display any error messages it just stays stuck indefinitely.
sorry I could not provide more information but at the time I don't really know any more.
any help would be appreciated. thank you.

Daemon Tools is the cause of many problems in Vista/Windows 7, but there's no way of knowing for sure if that's the problem just yet. Please follow the instructions here: http://www.techsupportforum.com/f217...ns-452654.html

Basically Group Policy Editor is not for the Home Premium version of Windows.

Hi I hope someone can help.
A friend downloaded some video of me on a Toshiba MK8032gsx portable hard drive. We checked to make sure the video was there before he gave it to me.
My computer sees it as removable disk F, and says the device is working properly. However, I can't open anything on it. When I click on it in the Computer Window, it scans (the green line appears at the top, but doesn't complete).
I tried searching online for a driver update, but the computer said the driver was up to date.
Any ideas?

Check in Bitdefender settings and see if is stopping externals from being used on your system. I don't use Bitdefender so I can't help you with the settings.

Do other externals work on your system?

Welcome
Your BSODs are cause by this driver.
I normally tell members to update the driver by going to the manufacturers website. But I will not tell you that. Your computer is new, I would contact the company. If you start updating drivers etc you could void your warranty. I gave the facts, now the choice is yours.

I recently ran windows defender on my pc to remove the alureon trojan. After running it my pc will not boot up in normal mode only in safe mode. It reaches the user profile page and will even go to where I enter my password then seems to time out and shut down and restart going to the windows did not shutdown properly page. I have tried system restore with no luck. I read in another forum that the trojan puts in a partition so that boot has to go through it first and to use [email protected] or liveboot to set my original patition to active. I tried [email protected] and don't really know which partition is what so I changed which one was active, then got a message that bootmng wasn't present, so I set it back. Don't know where to go from here.

A:windows won't boot after running windows defender offline

Hi pakoeikan,

my name is easyrider2. I have found that Windows Defender does not remove the Alureon trojan (please see: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alureon)

I am not a security expert but I think it would be best to try to remove existing malware on your computer before running Windows Vista System Restore. If you have an access to another computer with CD/DVD recorder I would recommend downloading and burning the Kaspersky Rescue Disc (http://support.kaspersky.com/faq/?qid=208282173). Once downloaded and burned into the CD/DVD, you would need to enter BIOS on your non-running computer. To enter to the BIOS you need to press a specific key which is mentioned on the very first screen once you power the computer on). Usually it can be F2 or Del. Once in BIOS, you would need to change the booting sequence so the CD/DVD reader is before the hard drive. Save the settings and try to restart the computer. Once restarted, run the Kaspersky Rescue Disc and let us know if it detected/removed any malware.

Best of luck.

You have no Restore Points. Use System Protection to create restore point.
When I attempt to turn on System Protection, it doesn't show any drives available when it opens -- it just says that it's searching for available drives and it keeps searching and doesn't stop. Eventually, I'll receive the following Error Message:

"There was an unexpected error in the property page: System Restore encounter an error. Please try to run System Restore again (0x81000203)." also all button are greyed out. I wanted take an image to show you but that's not working either. Is there hope?

The computer is a Toshiba Satellite Laptop with XP. I download The Windows Defender Offline and created the boo-table CD with this computer. But when I boot with it, the only option the program gives me is to update it. Then when I click on the update button the bar fills to approx. 90% then says it encountered a problem with the connection.This can go on over and over.

Yet when I put in the very same CD into My Dell desktop it runs just fine. I'm not sure if this is the right place for this question. But I hope someone has some idea of what else I can try. I also put the program on a flash drive. but the Toshiba does not have an option to boot from the flash drive

A:Windows Defender Offline

Windows Defender is, in my opinion, a complete and utter waste of time and resources. I'm not sure what you're trying to fix or accomplish by running it, but I assure you there are significantly better alternatives.

I downloaded Windows Defender Offline to a USB memory stick, 16GB capacity. I have used it once successfully. Can I add other 'matters' to this memory stick, or should WDOffline be the only thing stored on the stick ?
If other files, etc are added to the same stick, when booting up the computer offline to use WDOffline, will the offline procedure still be able to be carried out, or will other files present prevent it ?

Hello Fred,

Yes, you could use the USB flash drive as usual as well without affecting Windows Defender Offline. Just don't delete any of the Windows Defender Offline files.

A:Cannot startup Windows 7 after using Windows Defender Offline

On my xp (hopefully your 7 is close enough) when the restart loop happened, it's because a setting in "startup & recovery" was set to "automatically restart" in the "system failure" section of the "startup & recovery" pane. How I get to it is: RIGHT click "my computer" → "properties" → in the "startup & recovery" section "settings" → UNCHECK "automatically restart" → "OK & APPLY" your way out. I hope this can help you at least get out of the restart loop even though it's xp stuff. good luck

hello, i read another similar but not sure what will apply in my case.... After being notified my computer was infected I followed the suggestion to use Windows Defender Offline to remove the trojan. Once completed, and having cleaned the trojan, the computer would not reboot. It has a black screen with a flashing curser in the top left. I cannot even get to a login screen or any other screen. I am typing this on a laptop as my desktop cannot even be used now. The infected computer is a Dell using Windows 7 professional (sadly, not sure if its 7 or 8)64bit. When I restart, I can do f2 or f12 (but not f8 nor f10). been trying to fix all day. please help if you can

Please plug in a USB pen drive into a clean working computer.

Go to the Farbar Recovery Scan Tool Download
Farbar Recovery Scan Tool Download
Select the download that applies to your system.

[Note: To find out if it is 64-bit or 32-bit, check the Model of your Dell, and its serial number.
Go to the Dell website, and see if you can find out. If this is not possible, then, try one version of the tool (64-bit), and if it does not work, then use the other (32-bit).]

Save the program to the >> USB pen drive.
Remove USB pen drive from the working computer when done.

Now, go to the problem computer.
Plug in the USB pen drive which has FRST.

Start the computer, and tap the F8 key until you get to the Advanced Boot Options menu
Use the arrow keys to select the Repair your computer menu item

From there...
Select your language settings, and click: Next
Select your User account and click: OK (If you did not set a password, leave blank.)

On the System Recovery Options you get the following options:
Startup Repair
System Restore
Windows Complete PC Restore

Select: Command Prompt

In the Command Prompt window, at the blinking cursor type notepad and press: Enter
In Notepad, under the File menu select: Open
Double-click the Computer icon on the left.
Find the pen drive letter, remember what letter it is, click on it, and press: Open
Close out of Notepad.

Click the Command Prompt window
Type x:\frst.exe, and press: Enter

[Note:
1. Replace the drive letter x with the drive letter of your pen drive!
2. If the system is 64-bit, use x:\frst64.exe]

FRST starts, and prepares to run. Follow the prompts.
Click Yes to the Disclaimer.

Press the Scan button.

The scan runs, and, the program saves a report, FRST.txt, on the pen drive.

I've been using both versions of this on a few machines in the shop the last couple weeks and it seems to be working well enough. I like the idea of a simple live-CD scanner. And bonus: it will even update itself before a scan. Documentation says to make a new one every couple weeks, seems like a good idea. However, it doesn't seem to catch a lot. For example, on Saturday I had a kid's Vista laptop that had been hammered. Win Defender Offline CD found about eight threats. Boot to safe mode, run rkill and MBAM finds....get this....920 threats. Reboot and SuperASW finds 200 more. CCleaner clears over 200 registry problems. Applied SP1 and SP2 and current browsers and it seems to run just fine. Amazing. I'll keep using the CDs and see what happens.

A:Windows Defender Offline Beta

No single product is 100% foolproof and can prevent, detect and remove all threats at any given time. Just because one anti-virus detected threats that another missed, does not mean its more effective. The security community is in a constant state of change as new infections appear and it takes time for them to be reported, samples collected, analyzed, and tested by anti-vendors. Security vendors use different scanning engines and different detection methods such as heuristic analysis or behavioral analysis which can account for discrepancies in scanning outcomes. Depending on how often the anti-virus database is updated can also account for differences in threat detections. Further, each vendor has its own definition of what constitutes malware and scanning your computer using different criteria will yield different results. The fact that each program has its own definition files means that some malware may be picked up by one that could be missed by another. Thus, a multi-layered defense using anti-spyware products (including an effective firewall) to supplement your anti-virus combined with common sense, safe computing and safe surfing habits provides the most complete protection.SuperASW finds 200 moreThe detections most likely included a lot of tracking cookies which are not a threat.CCleaner clears over 200 registry problemsWhile CCleaner is safe and useful for removing temporary and junk files, I do not recommend using the built-in registry cleaner unless you have a good understanding of the registry. In fact, I don't recommend using 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 Understanding The 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.? Not all registry cleaners create a backup of the registry before making changes. If the changes prevent the system from booting up, then there is no backup available to restore it in order to regain functionality. A backup of the registry is essential BEFORE making any changes to the registry.? Improperly removing registry entries can hamper malware disinfection and make the removal process more difficult if your computer becomes infected. For example, removing malware related registry entries before the infection is properly identified can contribute to system instability and even make the malware undetectable to removal tools.? The usefulness of cleaning the registry is highly overrated and can be dangerous. In most cases, using a cleaner to remove obsolete, invalid, and erroneous entries does not affect system performance but it can result in "unpredictable results".

Windows Defender 64-bit has been downloaded three separate times and burned to DVD boot disks. Each time I have booted from the different DVDs, but each time Defender starts to boot then hangs on the screen where the Windows 7 four colored balls swirl around and form the Windows logo. However, with each boot attempt I don't see the balls, only a big light colored blue square where the balls would have been. Then the boot seems to stall right there and not continue.

Again, I have downloaded the Windows Defender file 3 times and each one does the same thing. Any input on this issue as to if it is something I need to do to my PC to allow Defender to finish the boot?

Thanks.

Hi guys,

I downloaded the Windows defender offline tool for USB iso bootable file from Microsoft website and now I can use it from boot to scan the machine. When the machine (Windows 7 32-bit) boots by that tool, it wants me to update it before scanning the machine and that is the work I do. It becomes up-to-date and scans the system.
So far every thing is OK.

But after a few hours or a day if I want to scan another PC by that updated Windows defender offline tool, it again wants me to update it (!!) while a little time ago I have updated it!!
Apparently the updating files don't remain/store in that tool.

Is there a way to save the updating files into that tool for future uses?

A:How to have Windows defender offline tool always up-to-date?

There are always new definitions being added, that is why it keeps updating. You will just have to live with the updating or use out dated definitions.

Trying to rid a Dell Latitude D630 running Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit laptop of malware, trojans etc. I loaded Windows Defender Offline 64-bit on a USB stick, changed the boot order to boot from USB, but receive the error message "BOOTMGR MISSING Press Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart", making it unable to run the Windows Defender Offline. I do not get this error when I boot normally (from HDD), only when trying to run WDO from USB. Laptop is fully functional (albeit slow) when booting from HDD.

Got the Alureon.a trojan/rootkit. Downloaded the Windows Defender Offline and ran it successfully, but now I can not get past the "Verifying DMI pool data....".

I've read countless posts about doing F8 or F10 to go into Advanced Boot Options, but neither of those respond. So I can not change the /NOEXECUTE=OPTIN.

Only things I can go into are the Boot Menu (F12) and BIOS Setup (Del). I've tried every possible combo of Alt+F10, Ctrl+F8, etc. to no avail. Hitting (ESC) to go into Safe Mode option does not work either. Nor vigorously tapping of F8 or F10.

Any suggestions on how to get to the Advanced Boot Menu?

I realized I had an issue when Microsoft Security Essentials kept getting turned off. It suggested running Windows Defender Offline, after I ran a deep scan & cleaned them out, I couldn't start my machine. I went to F8 and hit "Last Known Good Configuration". My only option was "Windows XP Professional". I've never had XP on this machine. My question is...is my machine screwed and everything gone?...can anyone help me fix my machine?...And yes, I have a second hard drive as a back-up but it seemed to have messed that one up too....I would appreciate any help...

Microsoft Security Essentials said I needed to run Windows Defender Offline to remove a trojan. I made the disk and ran it and it said it removed the trojan and to restart the computer. Only problem is it only goes to the Windows Error Recovery Screen. It will not repair or start normally. I tried the advanced start options (safe mode, etc) and it will not work either. I have a Sony Vaio with Windows 7 Professional, 64 Bit. I was told by MS to download a windows disk from
http://msft.digitalrivercontent.net which I did and burned it to a DVD as requested. Put it in the laptop and still get same windows error recovery screen.
Someone please help. I have now been without the computer for 3 days and I am ready to trash it and get a Macbook Air.

A:Windows Defender Offline crashed computer

Edit ... You can make a system rescue disk http://www.sysresccd.org/SystemRescueCd_Homepage
Just be sure to burn the ISO at a slow speed so as not to corrupt the CD!

If you have MSE Microsoft Security Essentials, then disable Windows Defender in Services. Type services.msc in the start search box, click on the icon, scroll down to Windows Defender, right click > choose properties, then set it to disabled.

Make sure your not using 'proxy' settings:
1) Under “Tools” in the browser tool bar select “Internet Options”.
2) In the “Internet Options” window that pops up, click the “Connections” tab at the top.
3) Click “LAN Settings” near the bottom of the “Connections” section.
4) If the “Proxy server” checkbox is marked with a check, click it to deselect/uncheck it.
5) Click “Ok” to close the “Local Area Network (LAN) Settings” window.
6) Click “Ok” to close the “Internet Options” window.
Reboot
Make sure "Proxy server" is still disabled under your LAN Settings.
Test whether Internet connectivity is restored.

If no crashes occur connecting to the Internet ...
Download DDS from one of these links:

Mirror 1 Mirror 2 Mirror 3Disable any script blocking protection
Double click the dds icon to run the tool.
When done, DDS will open two (2) logs:DDS.txt
Attach.txt <--- will be minimized in the task tray

Save both reports to your desktop.
Include the contents of both logs in your next post.
The scan will instruct you to post Attach.txt as an attachment.
No need for that though ..... just post it's contents as you would any other log.

So a google search tells me that this seems to happen pretty often. Microsoft Malicious Software Removal Tool detected Alereon (sp?), directed me to use Windows Defender Offline. I did and now I can't boot up.

I have followed the directions given here to prior victims and have attached the FRST scan log. Thank you for any help you can give.

After being notified the Alureon Trojan was on my computer I followed the suggestion to use Windows Defender Ofline to remove the trojan. Once completed, and having cleaned the trojan, the computer would not reboot. It now says no BOOTMGR and just continues to reboot itself and goes back to NO BOOTMGR error. I cannot even get to a login screen or any other screen. I am typing this on a laptop as

I removed a Alureon virus using the Windows Defender Offline and everything was successful until I restarted the computer, I got the BSOD. Then unplugged all the various drives I had attached and used the Start Up Repair option and it said that it couldn't repair the computer. So I searched on a clean computer and got as far as downloading the FRST64.exe. I ran it and I will try and attach this file to the post. Any assistance would be most helpful.

Thanks!

Trying to clear my mom's computer of some viruses. She has Microsoft Security Essentials and it said I needed to download Windows Defender Offline.
 
I downloaded to my personal laptop and created the files on a brand new clean USB flash drive.
 
Went through the steps necessary through BIOS to move the USB drive to top of the Boot list.
When I put the USB in and restart the computer, it gives me a Disk Error message.
 
Any ideas what the issue could be?
Computer I'm trying to clean is a desktop Dell Dimension.

A:Disk error trying to boot with USB w/Windows Defender Offline

That means the usb disk was not properly made bootable or the computer is not able to boot from a usb disk.
Would you point me in the direction of the instructions you used so I have a better understanding of tools used?
I would point you toward the "Virus, Trojan, Spyware, and Malware Removal Logs" for better help at specific removal of viruses but I understand if you would like to proceed in your own direction.  If you do decide to go to that forum please use this post first.

So my sister's computer has a severe virus problem (aparrently). So when she comes down sunday I'm going to try to fix it.

I have downloaded Windows Defender Offline and burned to a disk (realized too late it was a DVD-r ), but I'm wondering if it will be good enough. I'm downloading Kapersky rescue disk right now, but it's taking a little while (slow internet here).

My question is: will this be good enough? I intend to run maybe both of these disks, then manually uninstall any crapware and toolbars.

I recently had some problems in my windows. Out of many problems in windows 2 were that windows update was not working and secondly dialogue boxes did not have texts on it.

Hello, 
 
This is my first post. I recently removed trojan alureon using Windows Defender Offline and ever since I can not boot. I have seen this problem solved on this forum before so I figured I'd give it a try. I already ran a farbar scan and have the output file. I'm not sure what to do from there. Can anyone help?

I ran a Windows Defender Offline and it removed a Trojan Aleuron and two java viruses.  When I restarted my PC it started up fine but only stayed on for about 30 seconds and then does a restart.  When it restarts it asks me if I want to start in one of the Safe Modes or a regular start.  If I start in a regular start it repeats the shutdown over and over again.  If I start it in Safe Mode it will stay on.  I had to start it in Safe Mode with Network to use my internet.  What do I do to get my PC back running properly.  Thanks for any help I can get

A:PC wont stay on after running Windows Defender Offline

Try to boot it into safe mode and open MSCONFIG go through the startup items and uncheck the unnessecary ones. then try to reboot the computer, and see if it will boot normally. If it boots to normal mode make sure you run a anti virus scan.

Hello sbuxman Mate have you actually removed these if not maybe try a scan with either Malwarebytes or SuperAntiSpyware? you may be able to clear those with those apps.

download the free versions and update scan and remove if they show up.

While using Windows Defender Offline (WDO) scans show that it detects some sort of virus. The problem is at the end of scan it doesn't allow me to review or remove the virus. I need Help.

A:Windows defender offline scan results problem

Couple of things that can adversely affect how Windows Defender Offline performs.
1. It's absolutely necessary that the bootable media is created on a malware-free computer. Otherwise, the malware could prevent your PC from downloading the program, burning it correctly to the bootable media, or prevent it from operating as intended.
2. Do not re-use a previously created a CD or DVD.

This tutorial gives some more info about creating and using the bootable WDO media.

Hi there, first time posting here.
 
I recently helped my father-in-law remove a trojan named alureon using Windows Defender Offline. Immediately after it was removed, Windows 7 would blue screen on the OS load screen and crash.
 
Two questions:
 
1) Is the trojan successfully removed from the PC? Using Microsoft Security Essentials scan in Windows Defender Offline indicated a clean computer, but now it won't boot so I'm not sure.
 
2) How can I fix this issue and get it to boot up?
 
Thanks.

Hi there,my name is Marius and I will assist you with your malware related problems.Before we move on, please read the following points carefully. First, read my instructions completely. If there is anything that you do not understand kindly ask before proceeding. Perform everything in the correct order. Sometimes one step requires the previous one. If you have any problems while following my instructions, Stop there and tell me the exact nature of your problem. Do not run any other scans without instruction or add/remove software unless I tell you to do so. This would change the output of our tools and could be confusing for me. Post all logfiles as a reply rather than as an attachment unless I specifically ask you. If you can not post all logfiles in one reply, feel free to use more posts. If I don't hear from you within 3 days from this initial or any subsequent post, then this thread will be closed. Stay with me. I will give you some advice about prevention after the cleanup process. Absence of symptoms does not always mean the computer is clean. My first language is not english. So please do not use slang or idioms. It could be hard for me to read. Thanks for your understanding.  Which windows version is running? Also tell us, if it is 32- or 64bit.

Hello!
 
I ran Windows Defender Offline on my firend's Windows XP machine and it removed a couple of viruses (including alureon.a) but when I tried to reboot all I get is a flashing cursor in the top left corner.
 
From what I have read it looks like it has created an issue in the MBR but I am not skilled, nor confident enough to fix it.
 
I have seen others with similar issues on here but I am afraid that their solutions were personalized enough that I was not able to duplicate the repairs suggested.

Two weeks ago I was at the remote site and made sure that the remote PC was configured to never sleep and that Windows updates were set to auto re-log in after updates. I get home and boom! yesterday the durn thing goes offline which means I have to travel 1200 miles to touch the mouse so that it will wake up. What am I doing wrong?

Hi
i have a sony FZ21S laptop, beautiful machine it is only broken down 6 times due to the graphics card.

Well in short, i havent got the disc for the OS *Vista home premuim*. I have looked in many shops here in Vietnam and cant seem to get a copy of the OS. I have all the keys as they are on the under side of the laptop. Can anyone assist?????

I would like to re-instate the original OS in a hope that i will have less problems, unless any of you people have a better solution.

Cheers

Andrew

Since Home doesn't have Group Policy (the standard way to turn on Windows Defender),
I tried the registry hack offered by Windows 10 Forums.

It didn't turn on Windows Defender either.

Can Windows Defender be turned on in Windows 10 Home?

A:Can Windows Defender be turned on in Windows 10 Home?

If you have one of the following AV programs installed, Windows defender will be turned off automatically. Can't turn it on if one of those is installed.
Avast
AVG
Norton
McAfee.

P.S. I am out of date on this subject. It is possible one of the above programs will co-exist with Windows Defender now.

I have recently installed vista home premium upgrade to my HP pavilion.I am impressed so far but I am not sure about Defender . Should I let it run with Norton antivirus 2008. This new upgrade has turned my PC into a brand new machine with a performance of 4.7 (memory, everything else got a 5.9).I am not sure what all this means and I am not tryin to go back to the poor performance I had before the clean install .... .So If anyone could give me there opinion on this defender software and any other microsoft aplications that I might want to give attention to I would greatly apreciate it Thank You

I can't seem to get Windows 7 SP1 to load a driver for an HP printer that is on my home network. My laptop sees it but won't let me make it the default printer or load a driver so that I can link to it wirelessly. I restored my laptop back to windows 7
because Windows 10 was moving too slow. I only have 4gigs of memory, and windows 10 probably runs better with 8gigs of memory.

A:Xp Home, Windows Won't Load

It sound like a memory issue to me. Try running one of the two following programs to testyour RAM..1) Memtest86 "A Stand-alone Memory Diagnostic"2) MicroSoft's Memory TestI prefer the first.

A:Windows XP Home will NOT load at all

Well first thing to determine is if the hard drive is good or not, and if so recover the data. There are lots of ways to do this, but the easiest is to pull the HD out of the bad machine, and install it as a secondary (or "slave") drive on another.

Do you think you could do this ?

Once the data is safely recovered, then we can try to figure out what's wrong. The reason for the data recovery first option is because it's possible the hard drive is in process of moving to permanent failure, if it is not already there. Sometimes HD's go bad "instantly", and sometimes it takes some time before they finally fail. If your situation is "B", you do not want to waste what little functionality the HD may have, messing around with trying to fix a HD that is doomed. So, get the data off first.


First question, is the hard drive a SATA or IDE ? Is the data cable (not power) running from it wide or skinny ?

A:Installed Windows Service Pack 3 Now Windows won't load past Windows Boot Load Screen

Hi sirdanceal0t,
I had a similar problem when Windows XP SP3 was released it was only designed for Intel processors, so if you have a AMD processor it will cause your system not to load, if you are running a AMD processor if i were you try and get back to the System Restore Point or if that fails reimage your pc and just before installing SP3 looks for the patch/fix for your processor model, then install SP3 and it should all be fine.

On the other hand if you have a Intel processor i woulldn't know what to advise.

I reinstalled Windows XP home SP2 and now I can't load any printer driver unless it came on a disk. I'm trying to install an HP Deskjet 812c through USB. Part way through driver installation I get the message "Printer driver was not installed. Operation could not be completed." I've tried various other print drivers and get the same message. My Canon i560 installed without issue from the disk.

Any suggestions? It's making me CRAZY!

I bought a used computer which was loaded with Windows 98. Because I have Windows XP on the computer (which I own) at my office, I wanted to load XP on the used computer for use at home. The new (used) computer has a Pentium III 450 processor, 128 mb ram. I began loading the program and left the computer alone for a half hour or so. When I returned, the screen read, in the upper right hand corner, in plain white print, "Welcome to Setup." The only response I can get is if I press Enter and the screen reads, this time in the center of the page and still in plain white letters, "Windows XP Home Edition CD-ROM." No matter what I do that won't change. If I turn the computer off and re-start it I get the same result. Help! Have I destroyed this computer? What do I do now?
