Hi,

I recently was uninstalling some unused programs,and norton av 2009 and when I try restarted to refresh the system windows says "sorry for the inconvenience but windows did not start correctly" then I try to boot into Safe Mode and it doesn't work it does into that scary screen with the loading drivers and then goes back to the "sorry for the inconvenience but windows did not start correctly" then a blue screen comes up then it goes to a blank black screen.


I mainly really want to recover my documents, I do not mind reformatting but can I recover those docs and pictures? Or if you know of a simpler way to fix this please tell me.

All help is appreciated.

Hello DeadPC...

Try this REPAIR to your installation of XP. This procedure will not damage or change your current files or settings...it will just repair or replace damaged system files. You will be asked for your Installation CD and may be asked for your product key. Follow the instructions carefully...print them out if you can. Note: This option is not always available on OEM Recovery Cd's

Once this repair has completed, you will have to download all Windows Updates again.
