not my computer but someone elses. as soon as windows loads, a message appears after only like 10 seconds. it counts down from about 1 minute until the computer shuts down by itself. the message says something about a DCOM server process launcher not working or something.

but the computer also had the message that says that things were changed in the system startup. i hear that if you delete certian important things in the startup, that it could really screw up the computer.

my guess is that these people were screwin around with that or something (either on purpose or on accident) and thats what may be screwing up the computer when it starts up bc it keeps shuting itself off.

oh. and i heard that typing startup -a or startup/a or something prevents the computer from shuting down. i did that but it still shut off.

i can always tell these people to use the restore cd, but that will lose anything and i would like to save that as a last resort.

i read everything at that site just now, but the problem is that there isnt even enough time to do any of that. as soon as windows loads, you got only a minute b4 it shutsdown.

what i need is to atleast keep it from shuting down while i fix the problem in the first place. typing startup - a isnt doing anything. :thumbsup:

Go to Start, Run, Type cmd, when you get the countdown type shutdown-a & hit enter. This should abort the restart or shutdown and give you time to fix the problem
