i tried to close down the machine via the on screen start button and it wouldn't stop
i pressed the off button
next time i pressed the start button i got a black screen + message
"windows did not start successfully. if a previous start was interupted by power failure restart normaly"
i told it to start normaly and it went into a loop and won't start
after looking on the forum i tried ARCDC
copy userinit.exe c:\windows\system32
i got: can't locate the required file
when i changed the 3rd line to: copy c:\windows\system32 userinit.exe
i got: access denied
can you throw any light on this for me?
i don't know what the cause could have been
i don't go on suspect sites so i can't see it being a virus
