This sounds like a classic case of malware. When was the last time you scanned and what did you use? And why did you feel you had to use the recovery disk?
and life goes on...
Dell Inspiron B130
I just used the recovery disk.
Computer starts and I now get this message about something caused the computer to shut down, you can start the computer last known config, safe mode start normally. Message will not go away
I even put in the driver disk and there is the Dell OS tools, but it says Java version 4, not 6. so I did not install it.
If I try to use drop down menus, it locks up. When I shut down the computer, it hangs, then when I start it up the next time, it gives me the error message but it starts.
I went to get Windows updates, and it tells me I have to be logged in as administrator. I am logged in as administrator. Ran this
and it validates. I can't figure it out.
Seems when I use anthing that has a drop down menu, Windows Explorer or try to add a picture to an email or save a picture to a folder, if I use the drop down menu, that's it it freezes. Have to use task manager to get out of it.
