what could be causing my system not to boot?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
i installed AVG antivirus.. Ran it and it deleted 3 files but i couldn't find out what exactly those files were. Stupid aVG also detected 6 files i know that are safe as trojans. POS software.

Now, after the Windows screen with that bar moving left to right, the screen just hangs there blank.... ***?

I am typing this in safe mode. I'd really hate to do a clean installation.

Actually, before you do that, you could probably go into AVG and see if it kept a log of what files it deleted, then restore those.

Also try a System Restore if you have one, from before the incident.

Barring all of that, you can perform a "repair installation" by throwing your windows disc in the drive, rebooting to it, and following the options to do so. (Don't use recovery console, that's not what you want. Usually to do a repair installation, you need to act like you want to install a new copy of windows. Right before you finish, there's an option to hit R instead, to do a repair on the partition instead of formatting it)

This will keep everything on your partition, including options/settings wherever possible. A few things might need to be played with (drivers and such) but it's pretty safe. It won't wipe your files in any case.
