System fail to boot pass scroll bars

I am unable to boot pass windows scroll bars at boot up stage. Yet i boot up with no problem in safe mode. This all began after i ran "sfc /scannow". I ran this program because my system OF late takes forever to open a program on first attempt and Roxio begin to refuse/freeze to create DVD. system is virus free and malware free as AVG 8.0, A Square and Ad-aware keep me running real clean.I have research your archive on this issue but none quite help.
System info is: AMD Athlon, 800mhz, 1024mb, XP-PRO & 40ghd . HDDrive was defrag yesterday, and i also rolled back my NVIDIA driver but to no avail. Your expert help would help. I am reaching you via my sons computer.

If You Can Boot To Safe Mode....

In reply to: System fail to boot pass scroll bars

what happens if you chose boot to "Last known Good Configuration" instead ?
SFC should not have caused this as it simply repairs any corrupted system files by comparing them w/ a original copy created during original install of the OS. Where there's deviation, it replaces the current corrupted file with a clean, original copy.

If the original copy is corrupted, it would ask for your OS CD or SP CD or install file location & get from there.

There was a known conflict between AVG AV 7.5 & Roxio Drivers for versions 4.0 thru 7 CDRAL. There was a correction tool. I'm not sure IF such a conflict exists w/ AVG 8. Possible I suspect. Recall seeing a post saying AVG * wanted poster to update to a NEWER Roxio/Sonic version.
Good Luck! Happy

Roxio & AVG possible conflict

In reply to: If You Can Boot To Safe Mode....

I took your advice and did a restore. It work perfectly at least for now. Base on the info you gave i then remembered that i did upgrade Avg 7.5 to 8.0 but i could not remember using Roxio,but my scroll bar problems began shortly after. The only difference is it would freeze on the first attempt to start up, but not the second. I thought doing a unscheduled clean would help, it only got worse.
To avoid future problem with Possible Roxio and AVG 8.0, is there a fix.

Good Start!! Unfortunately, There Are Several.....

In reply to: Roxio & AVG possible conflict

cautions involved w/ new AVG 8 (it has a service pack 1 out now).
It has /had conflicts with both Spybot S&D & Javacool's Spyware Blaster.
If you want to keep AVG 8, suggest disabling or un-installing either or both OR you could use Avast! AV or Avira Av instead.
Have you any other active background protective guards installed??

You mention XP Pro but not SP level. AVG 8 REQUIRES minimum of XP SP2/3
or Vista. If before that, then you shouldn't use AVG 8.
Link to page listing AVG 8.0 Supported & NOT Supported OS:

NOT positive about conflict between AVG 8 & Roxio (couldn't find much via Google or at AVG site search)( I've always found AVG>search useless). Saw a suggestion to try un-installing Roxio, Do clean install of AVG 8 & then try & re-install Roxio. Perhaps 8 can accept Roxio as new incoming program but has conflict when Roxio drivers already there first?? Didn't see posters reply AFTER trying this IF he did. There was a similar problem between Roxio & Nero too way back then.
You might try posting at either Roxio's &/or AVG Free(?) Forums for most up to date info on possible conflict. Probably requires free registration (use web mail Hotmail, etc. address).

This used to be the link for the Roxio Patch but will lead 2 Forum?:

AVG Free Support Forum:

Please reply w/ info requested above (as much as seems reasonable particularly re: other protective programs)in case other conflicts may exist. I'll be back tomorrow. Thanks & Good Luck! Grin
