while playing itunes, my pc upstairs has just suffered some kind of huge error.
The whole thing locked up and the sound jammed, wouldnt respond to anything and I had to turn it off.
Upon restarting, nothing works.
My computer does not open, it either hangs or opens showing the torch symbol searching for files, then hangs.
Help and support function (where System Resore is) does the same thing.
After I have tried either of the above, nothing works on desktop, can't click on any folders or anything
The little green linksys icon and other icons are missing from the task bar.
When windows loads, I also have an error box headed "Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Library", which reads:
Program: ...ch\Desktop Messenger\8876480\Program\BackWeb-8876480.exe
abnormal program termination
I am running XP Professional, all service packs and updates installed, 2 GB Ram (it might be worth noting at this point that I seem to be having some memory problems... different errors occuring with identical code in a couple of games) and a GeForce8600.
The Pc has locked up like this a few times but this is the first time where anything has been wrong on reboot.
