I had a major computer breakdown about a month ago, starting with stupidly locking my computer and losing password. One thing led to another and now I can't get into anything but safe mode. I tried a Windows Repair disk that I ordered from e-Bay, but the seller gave me no instructions, just a lot of "read me's." I have little or no experience with unzipping and installing, extracting, to what directory, and all that stuff. At 56, I pretty much can get around the computer, even "fool" it once in a while. But nothing this complicated.
Getting back to the problem, the first error I get is in DOS with The Netware Server. That is on my computer. But I just don't know which files to open with it. Most of them work pretty well with it, but I can't open Frostwire. Yes, I do p2p. I can prove to the RIAA that I spent more money on their products than I have ever downloaded. I don't do extensive p2p, nor do I share and download thousands of songs - my HD won't permit it and I wouldn't do it anyway.
These are the errrors in config in order:
Then NORTON - which I removed from the system.
When I get into saft mode, I get the "can't find nwnr.32.dll" errror. If I don't press OK at once, it will eventually clear up, but not entirely, there's an error box with no "X" at the top. I press OK. After that I getinto safe mode and then the "restart vs. link error.
For a new member and a first post, I know that this is really wordy, but I had to explain it as fully as I could. Some programs will work, others won't, which leads me to believe it's a Java Runtime issue that I have to have to open Frostwire or Limewire.
I want to install PCLinuxOS onto my computer. I can't partition the HD. Is it possible to install Linux over this mess?
Any and all help will be most appreciated,
