Hi :tazz:

I think we are going to need to format, clean up has done something real serious.

Can you put the hard drive is another computer and get what you need out of it? Or can you still run programs form task manager, and burn it to CD or DVD. Or can you load what you what to keep to a USB. I would like to have you music backed up some where safe what ever we do.

There is also one other thing that could be causeing it, that is malware. But since this happened after running cleanup I don't think this is the cause. But just to be sure can you please post a HiJack This log in your next repy, I what see it and get some one to take a quick look at it to make sure it is clean. If you don't have it already can download it from Here I know this will not work unless you can start programs form task mamager.

I am sorry I can't do more.

The repair installation must not have completed successfully. Were you able to get your PC to boot from the CD? If not, we may need to edit the BIOS so that the CD-ROM is higher in the boot order.

Look like he has lots of attention, Here is a quote from a PM I just got

Maybe this?


Supposed to restore desktop and Tabs


Plese download that.
Then unzip it (might be imposible because you don't have a desktop)
Dobble click on both files from the zip file and agree to merge then into your registery.

Don't know it will work, worth a try.
