I have downloaded a couple of programs, and for some reason I can't get rid of one of them. So I tried to do a restart. Then the welcome screen came on with a message "A problem is preventing windows from accurately checking the license for this computer. Error code 0x80090019."

I clicked ok, and it brought me to my desktop with only my wallpaper, no icons, no nothing. After a couple of seconds, it brought me back to the welcome screen with my name on it for logging in. I clicked to log in, it loaded my personal settings, then the same message came on. I clicked ok again, then it logged me off in the welcome screen. I tried to relogin, but same things happened again and again. I don't know what to do.

Somebody pleaseeeeeeeeeeeeeee help!!!

Thanks in advance!!

Oy.

Kass, I sure hope you have a windows xp cd....the only way you can fix that is to run a windows repair that I can think of.

Maybe I am missing something....what did you download and how were you trying to get rid of it?

I sure do have the xp cd. I know what you meant, and I have reinstalled Windows. I now got all my stuff backed up. And I have done a full format of my HDD. Everything is fine now. Phew! Thanks for your help anyway. ((Hugs))
