Word of caution...make sure you get the correct one:

It's called Spybot Search & Destroy and it's found here:

 

http://www.safer-networking.org/index2.html

(it's free)

 

There are imitations with somewhat the same name on the Internet that either does the same job but requires you to pay, or worse, contains spyware themselves.

 

Happy computing :cool:

alternatively, u can try "Last known good configuration" upon bootup window. :)

guy i faced a similar situation as 299 on my client PC.. i tried all safe mode and last known good configuration after pressing F8 the computer still restart.. can i conclude that the HDD is crash ? cau i can;t use chkdsk to see if this hdd got any bad sector unless i install on another pc..

 

Or is there any chances that the OS causes safe mode and last known gd configuration not able to work?

When you pressed F8, were you presented with a menu that allows you to choose from many different options, such as to boot into Safe Mode?

 

Or are you saying you indeed chose "Safe Mode", and when you did that, it immediately rebooted the PC?

 

================

 

My guesses to your problem would be:

 

1) User has bought hardware from a store (and its driver) which

........ a) somehow made Windows misbehave

........ b) isn't made for that version of Windows but user has forcefully installed it into the computer anyways

 

2) Something's very wrong with your OS...a file(s) that maintain the proper working condition of Windows itself happened to be missing, or corrupt.

 

What a computer technician would usually do is to either:

 

1) Find the root cause of the problem and disable/remove it using various XP diagnostic tools -- if the cooperative user knows what he did before something went wrong with his PC

 

2) Head to last resort: repair the Operating System, or reinstall.

 

================

 

Granted that I -- and any computer experts here -- care about all of your PC's, we'd recommend you seek professional help if you are not comfortable toying around with the underlying workings of Windows, and the tools used to troubleshoot the problem (eg. Safe Mode, DOS, XP diagnostics, etc...)

 

Cheers :)

once in a while i've been getting this display 'no video input' on my screen even my pc is on. i have to do a force shut down resulting my HD to crash twice. once i sent it to a shop who can't seem to find the problem, it behaved well in the shop. right now, i got this problem haunting me again. i have the habit of leaving my pc on 24/7 even i'm not around. just now when i returned home going to the pc, it was in the usual stand by mode, all i have to do is to give the mouse a shake to wake the whole thing up but to no avail. the pc was still on. i off and on the monitor and it came back to life. about 5 minutes later, the screen went blank. did another off/on and the screen was on but only for about 10 secs. tried my best to do a proper shut down and restarted the com and up to now, my monitor just show me 'no video input'.

 

anyone knows what could be wrong? AGP card problem? i forgot what kind of Nvidia card i'm using but it's about 2 years old. or could it be my Philips 17" 170S LCD monitor problem?

help appreciated.

      Hi, good day to all. :> I've thought about this since a month or two ago. I also searched around sbf to see if anybody asked this before so that i don't have to ask, but either i didn't search thoroughly or there isn't any because i can't find anything like my question.
       
      i graduated from cdc. i was wondering if i can ride my own bike into cdc and start doing figure 8, crank course, plank, you know. i don't intend to stay long. just a short while to reminisce. i always did the circuit with the school bike so i'm curious to go in with my own. what do you think might happen to me? chased after? stopped and shoo-ed out? shot down? banned from returning? towed? fined? sued? jailed? suspend or revoke licenses? ???
       
      appreciate any bros or sis with experience to guide me. i'm still a noobie and learning. :>

      Hi guys, my laptop just went KAPUT...... i removed the harddisk and connected it to my desktop using a external enclosure. I can detect both my partition (C & D) but the files I want to access in my system partition is constantly giving me a security prompt that says i have no permission to view the folder. Can anyone tell me what to do? is there another way for me to get the files out of the partition?? Thanks alot
