Following boot and login, the screen goes grey with nothing but a small box with "control c..." (control center) as the title and "ok" as the narrative with an "ok" button. There's no desktop or Windows Start button visible, just a grey screen. If I boot it in safe mode, it's the same except it says "safe mode" in all 4 corners.
I've tried going into Task Manager to do various things to get the box off the screen and attempt to get into system restore. There's a program running called "ccmain.exe" that will take the box off the screen but booting will not continue. I've tried to run msconfig and take that program off the boot list, but it still happens after reboot (although it is still unchecked in the boot tab). When I get into a place to do a restore point, it says it's already running and won't let me perform the action. I can't run any programs and I'm not familiar with his computer or Vista. System Repair does nothing because it finds no errors. Restoring to a previously known good boot config does nothing either.
He said he was sent a link to "Facebook" and the link didn't do anything......except this!
EDIT: The window is very small with no icons, just that little "OK" button. The button does nothing and the "Close" button does nothing.
Has anyone seen this?
