Not very experienced with computers here and I seem to have done something very wrong. I found a C++ beginner book and decided to give it a go. It came with Visual C++ 2005 express edition. I went online, found out there is a 2010 version and installed that instead. My computer started having problems a day or so later with blue screen crashes, forcing me to re-install windows vista through the disks that came with my laptop (Lenovo Thinkpad T500).
Anyways, after installing some of the games I play, I decided to download and install visual c++ 2010 express again. It asked me to restart my computer, I did, and when it booted up again I got a bunch of "x program failed to start properly" messages (or something along those lines). It then shut down on its own. I tried starting it up again and since then every time I do it just turns itself off before I can even do anything.
I booted in safe mode to see if I could uninstall visual c++ 2010 but I can't find it in the programs list. I am currently in safe mode with networking. I really don't want to install windows again, can anyone tell me something I can do? Also, anyone know why this program giving me troubles? Thanks in advance for any help.
