I have Vista Home edition on a computer with a dual boot system 2 80G hard drives 2 gig ram. When I try to load my vista it starts and comes to the screen that says press alt+ctrl+del to login comes up because I do have a password for the account but when I press alt+ctrl+del nothing happens it just sits there. I can click on the blue icon that lets me make text speech and such in lower left but alt+ctrl+del does nothing. Any thoughts?

Nope same issue....won't let me press alt+ctrl+del can click the ease of use button but that's it. I suspect my system has some major issues. I had Spyware Guard 2008 on my XP drive....I did get rid of that however the XP drive won't let me install my copy of Trend Micro Internet Security 2009 or Spysweeper. I definitely need some help here. Thanks

Do you have the media you used to install Vista? You should be able to boot off the disk and access Microsoft System Restore, allowing you to possibly restore back to a point when it worked properly.

As far as the viruses on your xp volume; it's pretty unlikely that they got ahold of your vista partition. Unless you managed to re infect that OS as well.

As a last resort, you might want to try a repair install of windows.

Won't let me boot from disk or run a windows repair install for it. It's pretty frustrating at this point I'm not sure what else to do.
