Hello, my Computer is a Toshiba, Windows Vista Home Premium, 32-bit OS. It started last night, April 11 2011, and since then it has been booting up on safe mode. I tried to doing a scan using Norton 360 but it wouldn't allow me, I used Malware Anti-Virus and found some viruses which were immediatly remove but that didn't solve the problem so I did a restore point to the last day it began working but that didn't solve anything either.

Can anyone help me with this problem?

Did you update any drivers for any devices recently?

I did go to device manager and did an update on all the drives to see if that would clear the problem, they are all up to date but it did not fix my problem.

I suspect that you have some malware on your computer causing issues that we are not able to solve through means we can use here in the Tech Forums. I suggest you read the 'Start Here' topic found here. With these self-help tools you have a high chance of fixing the problems on your own. If you are still having problems after following Step 3 of the guide, continue with Step 4 and 5 and post in the Malware Forum. If you are unable to run any programs, Please create a topic stating what you have tried so far and that you are unable to run any programs. Also, Please do NOT post the logs in this thread.

If you are still having issues after the malware expert gives you a clean bill of health, Please return to THIS thread and we will pursue other options to help you solve your current problem(s).
