I need help, I installed Adaware a few days ago. Ran it and all seemed well. It told me to restart for changes to be complete as programs usually do. Now I can bring up my Log On screen, Sign In... Loading Personal Settings.... (music) ....LOGGING OFF. Now I am back at Sign In screen. So I go into safe mode, same story just worse graphics. Please somebody have a solution that doesn't involve the system disc, this was a hand me down from my wife. She doesn't believe you should spend the extra money on the disc.... of course she is a bit better at this computer thing than I.

If you don't have Vista DVD...

1. Create Vista Recovery Disc.

Option 1:

Option 2:
Download Vista Recovery Disc iso image: http://neosmart.net/...-disc-download/
Burn it to CD, or DVD: http://neosmart.net/... to a CD or DVD

2. Boot from created disk.
At first screen click on Repair your computer:

This will bring you to a new screen where the repair process will look for all Windows Vista installations on your computer. When done you will be presented with the System Recovery Options dialog box:

After this, it will present you with a list of options including startup repair, system restore and command prompt:

Try System Restore, first.
If that doesn't work, try Startup Repair.

Oh, sorry for that...

1. If you have Windows CD, follow the steps from here: http://icrontic.com/...pair_windows_xp

2. If you don't have Windows CD...
Download Windows Recovery Console: http://www.thecomput...om/files/rc.iso
Download, and install free Imgburn: http://www.imgburn.c...hp?act=download
Using Imgburn, burn rc.iso to a CD.
Boot to the CD...let it finish loading.
When the "Welcome to Setup" screen appears, press R to start the Recovery Console.
Then, follow the steps from here: http://icrontic.com/...pair_windows_xp, starting below this picture on page 1:
