hey people, im new here and i have read the 'read before postin new thread'. a problem with that tho is that in order for me to run IE, i have to boot up in safe mode with networking and i can only do a limited number of things. here's whats going on.
a little while ago, i clicked on a link for a Fruity loops download and a little download box popped up. not thinking i clicked the download cause it looked legit, but i accidently hit run instead of download. as soon as it was done, my ie crashed and i got that blue screen that comes up saying windows has encountered an unexpected error and then it starts dumping memory. ok, so now everytime i start windows up, i get this blue screen and have to restart in safe mode. when i finally get it working, i cant open ie, whenever i try to do a system restore, it never completes and i always get an error that says it could not be restored, windows update says it cant update cuz of an error(same problem with windows defender), when i turn my wireless lan on, it automatically crashes back to that blue screen. other then that, everything else works normaly. i tried to go by that tutorial in the "read this before posting.." but i cant download some of the critical files needed to post a log or anything.
im running windows vista on an acer aspire 5515 laptop, 64 bit AMD athlon, 3gb ram, 160gb hdd(80x2).
im new to vista and laptops, but i had a dell desktop with XP a looooong time ago and i knew my way around with that somewhat. but has anybody else had this problem and if so, how did u fix without havin to take it to a repair shop? i have some hard work saved on here and a lot of music and i dont want to loose any of my files.
