I've been able to run Internet Explorer in Safe Mode, but it runs funny. Tried to download Windows Update in safe mode but then the computer just shuts down. Tried to download to a USB and then copy to computer and run update...but I get an error message addressing the following problems - Automatic Updates, BIT, and Event Log.
So now I'm guessing maybe a virus/spyware problem. Ran Registry Mechanic which detected tons of registry problems, I tried to fix, but nothing worked. Just followed all instructions to fix virus/spyware on your site, but still no luck.
Now when I launch Windows, I get an error message rundd32.exe bad image. I get more errors after that - rundll not vaild. And when I launch Internet Explorer, I still get the iexplore.exe error message.
Help - I'm really not sure what to do at this point...a lot of this is very greek to me, so maybe I'm making it worse? Appreciate any advise.
