I have noticed some web pages that re-direct me do not load......Like the Edit button here, I have no option for quick or full........if you click edit....it loads full edit. Also when I tried to add the URL to the link above, by clicking Insert Image, nothing happened........so I had to paste it directly into the text box.

Hello nogard.

Before we make any changes, please create a system restore point by going to Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Tools > System Restore. Create a restore point for today. Call it "dial-a-fix"

Next, download Dial-a-fix from http://fileforum.bet...ll/1131569373/2

When you download it, double-click on it to extract all of its files. Then open the folder it creates. Double-click on the file called Dial-a-fix.

At the top-left corner, check the boxes next to Install Windows Script Host and Install VB6 Runtime. At the bottom, click on GO.

When it is finished fixing/installing, reboot your computer. Now go to the Java Download Center. Choose the Online Installation. This will install the latest Java onto your computer.


Let me know how it goes.

Get dial-a-fix anyway, extract it, and run it. But before you do my Java Script fix, do this:

At the bottom, click on Tools. Select Reinstall System Restore. Then click on GO. You may need an XP CD for this.

Restart the computer after fixing.


If you do not have an XP CD, and it needs one, skip this and proceed with the Java Fix. The system restore is just as a precaution, but I doubt any problems will arise from using dial-a-fix.

Installing Java cannot hurt your system, so I'm not worried about the system restore right now.

If it doesn't work, I must solve your system restore problem, since we will have to dig a bit deeper. Even if the Java download works, we still need to get your system restore fixed, since this is an important part of windows.

Another thing that may fix the system restore is turning it off and then back on. Right-click on My Computer and select Properties. Click on the tab that says System Restore. Click on the box next to Turn off System Restore and then click on Apply. After it is done deleting all system restore points and turning it off, UNcheck that box and then click on Apply again. It will turn it back on and create a restore point. Make sure it has at least 6% of the hard drive allocated to it. This can be changed by sliding the bar under Disk space to use.

After doing that, try system restore again.

ok I tried the turn off.turn on funtion of system restore, and that worked.........and I created a new restore point. Then I checked the Panda online scan........and it launched.......I was also able to log into my internet banking......thats great,

I still have no clue what was done to fix the problem,............I tried to turn off then the system restore back on this morning, and it did not work.........I guess second try.was the charm........I will watch the system and make sure it stays stable.....

One good thing about it is........I have a new backup of all my data...LOL.......which I needed to do anyhow. I did that just incase something real bad went wrong.

Anyhow its working right now.........cross your fingers......

Hmm...I guess you just needed to clean out your old system restores. Either there was a leftover infection in there, or they became corrupted somehow.

Very interesting solution. Glad you're problem is resolved. :tazz:

If it starts up again, let me know
