Preferred Solution: safe mode and startup error and error messages

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.)

A: safe mode and startup error and error messages

Have you tried going into set-up and resetting all controls to "default setting"?

You're computer is most likely going into default mode because there is something else wrong with it.

You most likely haven't ruined it........jus need to take this one step at a time

What were the first error messages you were getting?

What happened the first time your computer started in safe mode all by itself?

Because of this problem: http://www.techsupportforum.com/f10/...ml#post1587221

I love all of your guys work and your helpfulness.

Well the error message is as following

C:\Program files\Windows\system32\(INSERT ANY OF THE FILES BEOW) is not a valid Windows image. Please check this against your diskette

Where it says insert it shows these. But it will show all in multiple messages.


They will all pop up in different messages but the error message will stay the same but just use a different one of these.

My question is, Are these real windows files or do they need to be deleted?

-Thanks in advance. Again Thanks for your contribution to the community.

Windows Vista Home Premium 32bit

For the past week laptop has been displaying message that Windows 6002 build is not genuine. There were also error messages regarding memory and security. On Saturday a friend came over with an external flash drive and copied some Photoshop files. That was the last driver that was installed. The last Windows security update was for Microsoft Office 2007 compatibility which was installed on 11/10/10. Yesterday BSOD appeared:

A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer.

If this is the first time you've seen this stop error screen, restart your computer, If this screen appears again, follow these steps.

Check to be sure you have adequate disk space. If a driver is identified in the stop message, disable the driver or check with the manufacturer for driver updates. Try changing video adapters.

Check with your hardware vendor for any BIOS updates. Disable BIOS memory options such as caching or shadowing. If you need to use safe mode to remove or disable components, restart your computer, press F8 to select advanced startup options, and then select safe mode.

Hi, orry if this is what everyone asks in here but would someone be able to look through my minidumps for me? I've been trying to learn how to do it myself but my computer BSODs before I have a chance to get very far.

Starting with the latest (I think):


This has only started within the past few days and has seemed to get progressively worse. I tried running a memory test due to some RAM I installed a while ago and disabled my wireless card as I changed that about six weeks ago. Still crashing even in safe mode, though that just gives me something about how Windows has encountered a critical error and has to shut down in one minute. BSODs include PFN_LIST_CORRUPT, BAD_POOL_HEADER and something about Windows and a critical area (or something) amongst others.

Any clues from the minidumps would be a big help, cheers.

I can no longer get into safe mode.

I have tried to fix my computer with the recovery disks and it wont fix it. It just does the same thing. Im at total loss of what to do next. Also, I ran the windows diagnostic tool and it told me all was okay...

I tried to restart, and picked the option to start in safe mode without networking. It started processing but I get the same blue screen part way through.

I tried putting on of the CD's the came with my system in the drive (Drivers and Utilities CD) but nothing changed. I do have another CD (Operating System) but I didn't want to try it without checking first, as I don;t want to lose the data on my system. Any help appreciated!!!!

Hello everyone,
I could really use some assistance with a PC problem I'm having (Win 7, 64 bit pro if it matters). I think it is a malware issue after several hours of trying to diagnosis and solve the problem. Anyone's assistance would be GREATLY appreciated. Thank you in advance for your time and consideration. Now onto some specifics and then the problem, details and things I've tried to remedy the issue.
I can't get into windows at all, no safe mode (of any kind) only command prompts pretty much.
Have I backed up my data? not recently. I would lose quite a bit of information I would like to have.
I mentioned malware because after looking around online for hours, it seemed most people having the same issue was caused from malware. Details follow:
A few weeks ago on a Friday, I was using my computer as normal (basic web use, social media etc. nothing shady outside of a streaming website for game of thrones). On Saturday I attempted to turn on my pc and I got a black screen with a cursor, but never got the blue welcome screen and the pc restarted. I attempted startup repair several times and the error says startup repair offline. I can't get into safe mode, nothing. I keep getting the black screen with the cursor and then it auto restarts itself. I tried 2 use 2 restore points and then the rest of them got wiped out (not sure why, perhaps the malware).

Hello Dirkdangler and welcome to BleepingComputer!             
My name is Sirawit and I'm here to help you.
Please note that I'm currently in training and my fixes need to be approved first, that may delay our fix a bit, but I will normally reply back in 24 hours.
If I don't reply after 3 days, feel free to PM me.              
==========================================================================Some points for you to keep in mind:
Backup any files that cannot be replaced. Removing malware can be unpredictable and this step can save a lot of heartaches if things don't go as planned. You can put them on a CD/DVD, external drive or a pen drive, anywhere except on the computer.
We ask you to run different tools in a specific order to ensure the malware is completely removed from your machine, and running any additional tools may detect false positives, interfere with our tools, or cause unforeseen damage or system instability.
Please do not run any tools or take any steps other than those I will provide for you while we work on your computer together. I need to be certain about the state of your computer in order to provide appropriate and effective steps for you to take. Most often "well intentioned" (and usually panic driven!) independent efforts can make things much worse for both of us. If at a... Read more

All signs point to a pretty nasty infection that somehow edited my registry.

As stated, Trying to boot in safe mode gets me the BSOD. Trying to Repair results in a 'Cannot Repair' message. Trying to Restore from a Restore Point gives me a similar error.

When I try to start it normally, I get this error:

"The program can't start because COMCTL32.dll is missing from your computer. Try reinstalling the program to fix this problem."

I do, however, have a laptop and an internal hard drive dock. I've docked it, ran Avast and Malwarebytes and got a few hits, but nothing that helped with the startup problem (After 2 days Avast was STILL searching, as a hard drive connected via USB is pretty freakin' slow), so I ended up ending that one prematurely.

I also ran Windows "Official" Malicious Software Removal Tool, and strangely it automatically restarted my computer about 4 hours in both times I ran it.

Unfortunately, reformatting is strongly undesirable

I tried finding a tool that could rebuild/repair/clean the registry, but it seems most programs do the local registry, not a secondary registry on another drive.

Any help is GREATLY appreciated. Thanks for reading.

Previously, when getting this message, I have been able to boot into safe mode. Now, I can't even get through safe mode as it hangs when trying to load Agp440.sys.

So, I'm stuck with this problem unable to figure out how to fix it. Any suggestions would be great. thanks.

I've looked through the forums and didn't see anything about my specific issue(s). Apologies if I've overlooked a thread already posted.
My issue: My daughter has an emachine with Windows 7 OS. It's been closing webpages while she's on them, so I ran a virus scan. We had AVG and it didn't pick up anything.
Now it flashes a blue screen (too quickly for me to see what messages are displayed), then acts as if it's going to start up. However, it brings up an error message that there is a startup error.
I get an option to start in repair mode or normal mode. I've tried both - normal mode repeats this display. Repair mode runs for a minute, then states that it cannot repair the issue. It takes me to the tools screen and offers the options for Repair, System Restore, Memory Diagnostic, etc. I've run the diagnostics, I've run the chkdsk, all of that. I did several system restores but got a message that system restore didn't restore.
Sometimes it will let me into windows (after attempting to restore several times), but if I have to restart it, it starts all over again.
Yesterday I used this computer to burn a copy of Sophos Virus Tool Scanner. I popped the disk in and started it up, and it loaded Windows (followed by a message that system restore was complete. ?) I ran the scanner, found several Malwares and a Troj/Agent.ADIL virus. It removed the Malware but not the Trojan. I went to malwarebytes and downloaded it, and it removed a bunch of stuff. ...

I've been having this nasty problem since yesterday. I have no knowledge of viruses whatsoever so I am at a complete loss as to what to do.

I'm using a 7-year-old laptop and Windows XP. At a guess, the problem comes from my friend's USB. This is what happened: I inserted the USB and noticed a RECYCLER and some Shorcut to (1) etc. viruses. I thought this wasn't serious so I ignored it. An hour or two after that my Internet connection crashed (I don't know if it has anything to do with the virus). By checking randomly, I found out that gpedit.msc and my Antivir setup file also refused to run.

I then shut down my computer and have been unable to boot ever since. Every time I try to start up, I am faced with a dozen of "out of memory" pop-ups, all of them with "xxx" in their title bar. I tried closing them all, but new ones kept springing up. I opened Task Manager and found at least 20 processes named FONTS.EXE. I guess this was what caused the "out of memory" error, so I tried to end those processes, but they kept re-appearing over and over again.

The taskbar and the desktop icons won't show up. The screen is blank - there's just my wallpaper background, my cursor and the nasty error pop-ups. I can't run any virus check or do anything else.

I've also tried rebooting in Safe Mode, but it took me to the blue screen of death.

Another problem, my laptop's CD driver is out of order (as I said... Read more

You have several issues. It might be easier to simply clean install.

You choice, here are the most obvious problems





One or all of the above are causing an issue with tcpip.sys which need to be fixed.

Hi there,

Just went through a full system malware removal and security update via the Malware/HJT forum. Since then however, I have been receiving two error messages when Windows starts up (XP). I will try to paste the screenshots of the msgs below, but I dont think it will work, so I will also type the details of the errors.

Error #1

"AirGCFG.exe - Entry Point Not Found

The procedure entry point apsSearchInterface could not be located in the dynamic link library wlanapi.dll."

Error # 2

"WZCSLDR2.exe - Entry Point Not Found

The procedure entry point apsInitialize could not be located in the dynamic link library wlanapi.dll."

Both errors show up with a red circle and white 'X'. I suspect that this dll file is missing, but not sure how important it is. Any suggestions for correcting the problem?



A:Error messages upon startup

Better go back to Security Forum as this is most likely a Vundo infection. The second one is for sure and the first one is either a driver issue on a Dlink wireless card or another Vundo example.

Sounds like your floppy drive died. Try going into bios and where the floppy option is, change the a drive to "not installed" then save and reboot. That should prevent the message until you can replace the drive (usually $10).

There seems to be a fix posted at the Malwarebytes' forum here:
READ the whole thread, and then probably best to use the clean install method, or try the fix.


Not sure if that will take care of the other error or not but it may.

I recently installed a new CPU. Ever since then during startup I have gotten the below error messages. I also am having trouble with Media Player crashing during startup and/or playback.

I recently had a virus that masqueraded as a legitimate anti-virus program (I think it was System Security). After a long process of going into safe mode and uninstalling it, I ran Malwarebytes and cleaned up the rest of the infections on my computer. However, after the login screen comes up, an error saying this pops up:

Windows cannot copy file C:\Documents and Settings\patron.orig\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5\0EJGS7S6\.biz_M-cm.nfl_M-cm.EX_hisp-cm.music_M;;tile=1;ord1=4092;sz=728x90;contx=none;btg=cm.biz1;btg=cm.biz_M;btg=cm.nfl_M;btg=cm.EX_hisp;btg=cm[1].music_M;ord=[timestamp] to location C:\Documents and Settings\patron\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5\0EJGS7S6\.biz_M-cm.nfl_M-cm.EX_hisp-cm.music_M;;tile=1;ord1=4092;sz=728x90;contx=none;btg=cm.biz1;btg=cm.biz_M;btg=cm.nfl_M;btg=cm.EX_hisp;btg=cm[1].music_M;ord=[timestamp].

DETAIL - The filename or extension is too long.

Possible causes of this error include network problems or insufficient security rights. If this problem persists, contact your network administrator.

Then the next screen says something to the effect that the computer couldn't log on to the user that was specified but was able to log onto the default profile instead. This is a problem because the computer that is infected is at the library I work at and we don't want people to mess with settings that they can now access us... Read more

Recently my dad's computer had a corrupted hive and boot.ini. Via this website, I was instructed to run a chkdsk /r while in the recovery console. Everytime I used his OS disk to get into the recovery console, it prompted me for a password and I didn't know it (nor could I leave it blank). I decided to use my OS disk from my computer and I could fix the problem. Now, though, everytime I startup the computer, it prompts me to start windows normally, in safe mode, in safe mode with networking... To give further information...on that same screen there is an option for Windows XP and Windows XP Home Edition. Don't know if that has something to do with it. They both work though when I press enter on either one. Could anyone help me stop the computer from prompting me??? Thank you for any help.

I'm an admitted newbie and would really appreciate it if anyone could provide some insight on the following:

Running a fresh install of Win XP Home w/ SP1 on an Asus A8V. Sometimes when Win starts I get the following three error messages in the following order:
"The Service Data Base is Locked"
"Can't Start Kernel Mode Driver Service"
"Unrecognized video card"

I only receive these messages intermittently and there doesn't seem to be any rhyme or reason to what causes them (e.g. there's no correlation between getting the error messages and whether the machine has been sitting cold of running for hours and then restarted).

I haven't noticed any problems with the system as everything seems to be running just fine. No lockups, just these weird error messages when I boot.

I'm going to update the BIOS to the MOBO, but does anyone out there have any clues about what's causing these error messages? I'd be more than happy to provide more info if necessary. Thanks in advance!

A:Random Startup Error Messages


"The Service Data Base is Locked"


I'm not to sure about the other ones yet. How often do you get these? every time you reboot? every other reboot? every few hours? every day?

Can you think of anything else weird that happens?
When did this start?

I have a Dell Studio 1555 laptop running Vista Home Premium.

When I switch on the laptop, I get the Dell screen, followed by the Windows logo: so far so good. My laptop is password protected, so the next thing I get is a screen asking for my password. Again, so far so good. Now, when I key in my password and hit enter, I would usually get a screen saying 'Welcome' and then a little later my desktop.

What's been happening lately is that I only get the desktop background (although occasionally I see my desktop icons); I also see the taskbar (though it's completely unresponsive, including the Windows logo button). Then I get a series of error messages, as follows. The text before the colon is the text on the tab; the text after the colon, in inverted commas, is the error message itself.

(Apple system notification something something):

"the application failed to initialize properly (0xc0000006). Click OK to terminate the application."

When starting my computer I am getting 3 messages that state:
1) Error loading C:\windows\system32\figebasi.dll
2) Error loading C:\windows\system32\jugodika.dll
3) Error loading C:\windows\system32\nusuzefia.dll

When I click through the OK on the error message Windows goes ahead and loads and I don't really notice anything wrong but I would like to get these error messages repaired.

I have Norton antivirus, Ccleaner, AdAware and Malwarebytes that I update and run regularly.

Curious if anyone has any idea what may cause this. This is my first post and if this should go in a different location please let me know and I will move it. Thank you for any help and/or info with this problem.

A:Error loading dll messages at startup

anti-malware softwares sometime remove a nasty but leaving behind entries in registry that still try to load dll's linked to the removed nasty.

it could also be caused by (noob) users manually deleting a program without using the proper uninstall procedure.

try using registry repair tools, like glary registry repair, and see if it cleans those entries out.

Hi, forgive me if this is the wrong place to be posting this particular topic but I'm brand new here and I understand the need for searching prior to posting, which I did with zero results found. So...

I get the following four messages on start-up, after Windows (XP) has loaded:

"The system cannot find the file specified - Creatfile"
"The handle is invalid - IOCTL_SIS_LIB_WRITE_PORT_ULONG"
"The handle is invalid - IOCTL_SIS_LIB_READ_PORT_ULONG" and
"The requested control is not valid for this service - ControlService"

They've been there for many months now and don't appear to cause any issues - I just click the "OK" associated with each error message and everything carries on as normal. I just finally got around to wondering if/how I could get rid of them.

Many thanks,

My cousin's computer was infected with the "Security Defender" virus. I followed BleepingComputer's steps here http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/virus-removal/remove-security-defender to remove it. MalwareBytes' removed it just fine.After MalwareBytes removed the infected files, I allowed it to restart the computer to complete the removal process. After restarting the computer, I have now began receiving two RUNDLL error messages at startup. After Windows loads, I am presented with these two RUNDLL messages below:They are both the same RUNDLL messages, but the part I covered up is my cousin's name. One of the messages shows it's under the "All Users" account, and the other message (the one that is censored) is under a different account which she named after herself.These two messages occurred right after the "Security Defender" virus removal in which Malwarebytes successfully removed it. Now we're getting these RUNDLL error messages. How can I fix this? Obviously this isn't something good to be popping up after every bootup. What do I do? Please help me.

A few days ago when starting up my computer my computer prompted me to do a startup repair, which I did. When I restarted my computer I got some error messages once Windows started, such as:
"C:\Windows|Microsoft.Net\Framework\v4.0.30319\mscoreei.dll could not be loaded."
I got another error message when I opened Google Chrome, but was able to get it to work when I reloaded the page.

I tried a system restore to the last restore point (about 10 days ago).
Ever since then, when I start up Windows, I get a series of error messages for application errors and initialization errors for basically every program on my system, and I can't open most programs. Some of the errors:
"The application failed to initialize properly. (0x0000096). Click OK to terminate the application."
"iTunes Helper was not installed correctly. Please reinstall iTunes."

Any ideas what might have caused this problem, and how it can be fixed? Will I have to reinstall Windows Vista? I have tried to research this but haven't found any answers for this exact problem.
Thanks for any ideas you might have!

I'm really, really frustrated. Pull up a chair, and let me tell you my story.

For a while now, I've been getting registry error messages every time I boot up my computer and Windows starts up. As soon as my desktop has loaded, I have to close about six little boxes that tell me " **file cannot be found. Please type file name in correctly, or remove from registry." After I close these windows, everything is ok.

Long story short, I have downloaded a few games from a pay game site I belong to, and the computer seems to be a little sluggish. (but the startup error messages were present before the game downloads). Anyway, last night I hit Google to try and find a reg repair tool that was either freeware or shareware. On PCnet.com, I found a product called RegCure™, that appeared to be the answer to all my problems. I scanned my system, and was told there were 815 registry problems present. Needless to say, if you wanted all of them repaired, you needed to pay 30 bucks to register the program. I'm thinking well, this will be a useful little utility, and thirty bucks isn't that much to get rid of all these problems, so I bit the bullet and bought it. I went through paypal, and minutes laterI was all set to run the program and repair the registry, which I did.

This morning I booted up my system for the first time since the "cleansing." When Windows finished loading, lo and behold, guess who was still around? My little friends, the registry ... Read more

It looks like something is trying to be opened and it is asking you what program you want to use.

Personally, I would go into run>msconfig>services> tick hide all microsoft services, then check ONLY the programs you want to run at startup. Which should only be your anti-virus, Malwarebytes, gadgets if you use them and that`s it. Click apply, ok, then restart the pc. See if the problem persists. Let us know.

Couple of days ago, all of a sudden my XP Pro SP3 OS started booting in 640x480/16 colors mode, plus failing to start the regular startup services and programs, displaying error messages like "Bad Image - ...NvCpl.dll", "Bad Image - ...NvMcTray", "Rundll32.exe - ...this and that" (not always the same). After 5-6 of these messages, desktop loads - sometimes with missing icons - but when I try to execute a program, an error message pops up that necessary resources are missing. After a try or two, fonts are dissapearing from the pop up windows and after a little while the system hangs completely.

This happens every single time I boot in normal mode. The only variation is the number and order of the startup error messages, but most of the times it's the ones I mentioned above.

In safe mode it always boots fine, with network support as well.

I cannot run HiJackThis or any other program in normal mode, I can only access programs in safe mode.

Looking forward to getting your advice. Thanks in advance,
