How do you start IE6.0 REPAIR Function in Windows XP???

Q: How do you start IE6.0 REPAIR Function in Windows XP???

Hey guys... I have some problems with IE6.0... it won't let me log into my web-based email accounts...

I keep getting an "intrusion detected" notices (even if I ask to "expire page views" at login).

so I want to REPAIR IE6.0 using the ADD/REMOVE option in Control Panel, and then Click REPAIR.

I tried to re-install IE6.0 from the Add/Remove Programs dialogue.... BUT my computer came pre-installed with IE6.0 (I'm using windows XP), so the Add/Remove IE6.0 option is not there.

So how do I start the Repair IE6.0 option if the Uninstall/Add/Remove button is not there????

Please help.

Preferred Solution: How do you start IE6.0 REPAIR Function in Windows XP???

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: How do you start IE6.0 REPAIR Function in Windows XP???

There isn't a IE repair option with XP/6.0.

But what are these 'intrusion notices' you're receiving?
They probably don't point to anything being wrong with IE itself.

Grtz.

I have a version of windows XP Home where the boot up is corrupted or damaged. What happens is that the system trys to reboot when it gets to the screen that indicates that it has not been properly shut down.

As there are some personal files on the drive I want to keep I have been trying to use the Windows XP Home Edition Repair function.

I have been trying to use the command to restore the files that I found in Windows XP Professional Help

"msiexec /f[p][o][e][d][c][a][m][v]"

When I try this command the system doesn't recognize it.

The system has a NTFS File system so a boot disk to read my files hasn't helped me

Does Windows XP Home have a different command for this function?

Any help I can get to resolve this problem and recover my personal files would be much appreciated.

Windows failed to start, startup repair cannot repair this computer, safe mode cannot load, chkdsk freezes, sfc scan cannot perform the requested operation

Hi, I cannot start my Windows 7 at all. With power on, the system tries to load up but: ' windows failed to start.A recent hardware or software change might be the cause'. Trying to open safe mode or last good configuration doesn't work, it goes automatically to startup repair but after about an hour trying it says ' Windows 7 Startup Repair Cannot Repair This Computer ' (tried a few times). After another reboot with a windows 7 repair disk in the drive I managed to open the recovery manager from the DVD instead of the HDD and tried all the options - system recovery does not work, i have no previous images of the system, I ran a scan on the memory - it was all clear but still windows not starting. Then I did CHKDSK and it froze at 11% on stage 4 of 5, that happened a couple of times so I decided to run an sfc scannow but another error: 'Windows Resource Protection could not perform the requested operation'. So I'm totally stuck and don't know where to go next, I've got no windows installation disk, only repair disk. Any ideas would be much appreciated!

Cgadrim Hello;Allow me to welcome you to the HP forums! If the problem is only corrupted boot files, it might be repairable.You will need access to a working PC in order to create the media needed to repair your PC boot loader.You will need to create something known as a Win7 Repair CD.  This will repair the boot loader files, and if that is the problem, your PC will boot OK after that.This can be obtained (for a fee) from this link:  http://neosmart.net/blog/2009/windows-7-system-repair-discs/When you download this file, it will be an ISO file.To make a bootable CD from it, you will need to download and install ImgBurn: http://www.imgburn.com/Once you have that installed, run it, select the option "Write image file to disc" and select the ISO file you downloaded, and point it to a blank CD.Once you have that, run it, in the Device entry, use the pulldown to select the USB stick.  Down near the bottom right, where is says "Create a bootable disk using", select the ISO file you downloaded.-------------------------------------Boot from the media you created, and follow the directions in this link: http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/681-startup-repair.html Yeah, I know that says Win7 but that and Vista have the same boot loader files.You will probably have to run Startup Repair three times for it to fix all the boot loader problems.When done, your PC should boot OK.Good Luck

The desktop had changed to a default format and the bubble at the right hand corner stated that I was in a temporary login.I Googled how to return to my usual desktop and majority of the advice was to restart or log off (I only have one user)So after logging off/restarting the computer a few times my original desktop and files returned.

Hi,

I am hoping people on the forum can help me. Got a Dell XPS M1550 last year January. Everything was fine until today. It's a North American machine, but I was in England for an exchange and currently am, and I think Dell warranty on Hardware is 1 year anyway so really no point after 3 months into the second year. (The region just incase power has anything to do with but its been fine the past 6 months so I don't see how it might).

In any case, I was away last night, and when I came back, my computer was on because I left it to run a McAfee virus check. When I was leaving it had 34GB of free space on HDD, but when I checked it when I returned it was at 59.1GB.

After I turned of the computer later in the day and took it with me to a different city I connected it again and turned it on. From that point it went directly to the windows welcome screen with windows logo and Windows 7 text loading, but not going anywhere. Eventually it restarted giving me 2 options: Either go into start-up repair or start windows normally. When I start it normally, same thing happens, when I go into system repair, it is stuck at a black screen with a mouse cursor. It won't boot safe mode or any other mode, giving me error screens... (Either {Fatal ... Error} or STOP: 0x0000007B error.

I have been trying to pinpoint this problem for a little shy of a week now. I have a custom built desktop which was running windows 7 Ultimate when it started to have troubles shutting down and booting up. It would fail to shut down and the windows start up would either get stuck for awhile(on the screen that is showing the logo) or it would not start up at all. Hoping that it would solve the problem I reinstalled windows and am now running windows 7 Professional but the problem is still not fixed, It still gets stuck on the start up Just wondering if anyone could help me find the cause of this problem as it is very frustrating. My computer specs are: EVGA 123-YW-E175-A1 LGA 775 NVIDIA nForce 750i SLI FTW ATX Intel Motherboard, Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 Kentsfield 2.4GHz LGA 775 Quad-Core Processor, EVGA GeForce 9800 GTX+ Graphics card, Rosewill RX630-S-B 630W PFC.

Any help would be great. To add, it will also not start in safe mode and the cd/dvd drive does not always read discs, this leads me to believe it is a motherboard problem.

Hi, so my laptop is not booting up.
The problem is that my keyboard is damaged and I need to use a wired/wireless USB keyboard, however at initial login screen it gives me two options launch start up repair or run
PHP Code:



start windows normally 





, however my keyboard will not let me tab or use up/down, although my mouse works but that is useless on these screens.
So every time it launches start-up repair because I cannot change option.
Now, here is the kicker! It lets me use USB keyboard and mouse on System recovery options!

So, I am stuck in this system recovery screen and trying to run things in command prompt, but not found the solution yet.

If I can command CMD to run "start windows normally" then it should get me back on track!!!

Anybody know this command?
I searched online for a couple of hours and had no luck.

I also tried to force safe mode via cmd, but also stuck in a secondary loop of safe mode in system recovery also. Any tips on how to undo this would be great also.

My laptop is an asus g53jw with win7 build 7600.

Hi, thanks in advance for your assistance.

My college-aged daughter & I cannot seem to start her Windows 7 64-bit laptop. It boots to Startup Repair and says that the issue is with C:\ci.dll, and that it is not able to repair the problem. This is true whether I try regular boot up, or safe mode boot up. I cannot start windows normally. If I disable driver signing from the F8 menu options, then Windows 7 will start up and I can login. Once I realized that, I installed and ran MalwareBytes... it found and removed several trojans, but still no luck booting without disabling driver signing, and no safe mode. At least I have a mechanism to install and run something to get a log of issues, if something of that sort would help debug.

Please assist if you can! Thank you very much!

Recently I have been dealing with a trojan and I downloaded windows defender offline. I put everything into my USB and booted my system from there. It deletes the trojan and everything and I powerdown the the laptop by holding the power button and then I go to my boot options and put everything to defaults settings and leaves. When it boots up this time it goes to a black screen that asks me to use Startup repair or Run windows normally. I click run normally and it takes me to the starting windows page with the logo and everything and when that is done it sends me back to the black screen again. It cuts off from there. I tried pressing alt+f10 and shows '/NOEXECUTE=OPTIN /MININT'. I've been researching this for a while now and I deleted that text and continued and it worked normally, everything booted up fine and I logged into windows. I was happy until I restarted windows and then the same thing happens. This time when I press alt+f10 nothing shows up or happens. Actually I have the same problem as this thread right here.

The differences is that when I press f8 or alt+f10 it will not work.

If I choose startup repair it just keeps searching. I had tried to restore when in safe mode but the omputer old me it. Could not find restore point. I have been trying to backup files that I needed before doing a factory restore but now I am lost....Help!

A:Windows 7 will not start...startup repair does nothing

Hello Atripodi and welcome to Seven Forums.

From Safe Mode can you uninstall those Windows Updates? If yes, does computer resume normal operation (no freezes)? If computer still has problems after uninstalling Windows Updates you could try running a system file checker scan in Safe Mode. Use an elevated command prompt (option two.) If problems are found run the scan 3 times rebooting in between each scan.

Windows Update - Uninstall an Update

This is the log. It was only installed last week but it was working fine.

I just tried to boot into Windows and it just goes to diagnostic, but fails. I tried advanced options like 'refresh the computer' but that fails and no changes are made. I tried advanced option system restore point also, but on both of the two restore points I can not check the C drive.

I can access essential files from my Ubuntu boot if it help fixing the problem.

My PC wont start so I tried a Repair installation using the Windows XP Home Edition SP1 CD ROM. The error kept showing that "load needed DLLs for kernel".
The repair stopped unexpectedly and the dialog box asked for the asms file. It showed the path GLOBALROOT\DEVICE\CDROM0\IŁ. This entry could not be changed as the keyboard and mouse became frozen and were inoperable. I cannot get a a command session using Shift+F10. Kindly advise and help with this unexpected problem, please.Thanks very much for your time and kind consideration.

You may have to settle for a complete Windows re-install.
You are probably thinking "but then I'll lose all my files". Well, that's why backups are so important.

Hi
 
I am trying to fix a laptop for a friend and think there is some malware that is preventing it from starting and unable to repair by going to an earlier restore point. I have read similar topics on this forum on this and it looks like the first thing to do is run frst.exe to get some information on what is installed on the machine. I have ran this on the laptop with the issue and have attached the output. Any help with this issue would be greatly appreciatted.

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.

When booting this Win7 Home Prem system everything looks fine as it starts up with the twirly windows thing but then it ends on a black screen with just the cursor and nothing happens after that. This is exactly the same in normal mode, safe mode and even start with command prompt.

I'm sure a repair install would fix it but Microsnot have, in their wisdom, decided I can't do that because the only way that'll run is from within windows and, of course, I can't start windows!

I've been through the startup repair attempts but, as usual, it says it can't fix it. I've tried restoring the registry back to a time before this happened (using manual means) but that makes no difference.

I've chacked a few things in the registry (winlogon/shell, for example) but everything looks fine. I've run chkdsk and all says it is fine. I've run a disk checking utility and it says the drive is fine.

The primary drive is a SSD (120GB) and had a limited amount of free space (~2GB) but I've freed off another 2-3GB but it made no difference.

Is there anything I'm missing here? I REALLY don't want to have to install from scratch. Why on earth did M$ decide to stop repair install running from DVD? Is there any way round that?

Window 7 Home Premium 64-bit

Had a dual boot Win 7/Ubuntu 10.10. Got rid of Ubuntu by deleting the partition it was on and extended the Win 7 volume. All of this done in Disk Management. At the end Disk Management showed that space now part of C drive. I restarted to check that the grub bootloader was no longer running startups and I get the Windows 7 startup screen and then the message "Windows configuring... Do not shut down computer". After running approximately 3 minutes appears a black screen with the following: error: no such partition. grub rescue > blinking cursor. I restart and get the error message immediately.

With some very good help from sevenforums members I was able to create a bootable USB repair disk (no optical drive). In System Recovery Options I attempted "Startup repair" and "System Restore". SysRestore said there were no restore points (??) and Startup repair found absolutely no errors (Target OS test, Boot manager diagnosis, System boot log diagnosis, Event log diagnosis and Boot status test all reported no errors). The details state "Boot status indicates that the OS booted successfully". This is not the case.

Before I use the command prompt in an attempt to repair a boot problem that Windows Recovery says doesn't exist, I thought I would seek the advice of those more knowlegeable about startup problems that me.

Thank you in advance for any help.

I started up my laptop the other morning an just as windows is loading a BSOD flashes for a millisecond and then the computer restarts. It did this 5 times in a row before I finally gave up. I found the windows vista cd that came with the computer and booted from it. Once the DVD loaded I clicked accept and it took me straight to a new install with no repair function which should be included on the recovery disc. I rebooted multiple times, here is no repair option. To make matters worse, I only have 5.9 gigs free on my hd and vista requires 6.6 to install. The only option I have is to reformat the drive, which is out of the question as I have lots of documents saved that I cannot lose. So at the moment the recovery DVD is useless to me, and I cannot load windows to delete some files to make room for a new install.

I took a video of the loading screen and was able to pause it at the frame when the BSOD flashes, here is the stop message: STOP: 0xc0000005, 0x00000200, 0x83354964.

I tried removing one stick of ram at a time thinking maybe one had gone bad it didn't make a difference. I'm at a loss right now. No matter how I try to load windows, safe mode, etc, I get a BSOD and it restarts, and my windows recovery DVD is useless with my hd nearly full.
 

A:BSOD during startup, no repair function on recovery cd

Nobody? There's no way to delete files/folders without using the command prompt on the recovery disc?

This really makes no sense and I'm beyond frustrated. Why is there no repair selection when I boot from the vista DVD.
