If you forgot to backup your files, read and do this -> http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/windows-vista/use-ubuntu-live-cd-to-backup-files-from-your-dead-windows-computer/
Once your files are safe you can restore the machine with the restore DVDs you made when you got the machine.
So I was rebooting my comp after installing AVG, and then it simply doesn't start back up, and won't start back up. Instead a blue and white screen appears.:
"A problem has beren detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer. if this is the first time you've seen this stop error screen, restart your comp. if this screen appears again, follow these steps:
check to make sure any new hardware or software is properly installed. if this is a new installation, ask your hardware or software manufacturer for any windows updates you might need.
if problems continue, disable or remove any newly installed hardware or software... disable bios memory options such as caching or shadowing . if you need to use safe mode to remove or disable components, restart your comp press f8 to select advanced startup options and then select safe mode"
So I did this, went on safe mode and deleted AVG and it's still not working.... any thoughts?
