Hi, Thanks for any help in advance.

I have an ACER ASPIRE 5515 Laptop computer with Windows Vista Home Basic on it and earlier today, a virus, or something started preventing me from getting it to bootup properly.

When I turn on the computer the ACER name comes up and it loads the computer to the first page that reads someting like this,

Your windows program won't boot up correctly due to a damaged or changed file, then it gives me one of 2 options:

Start up windows manually...which results in a page with partial info blinks on screen real fast then it goes back to orig. message.
Windows Repair startup(Recommended), ...which when I select this, it goes to the initial windows bar near the bottom with the little 4 finger chip that just keeps moving from left to right as if it is in process of booting up, but it does this indefinitely and windows never comes up.

I thought about pushing a reset button on the laptop, but I don't have a problem with the computer turning on, I just can't get into Windows at all.


Thanks, Barry1034
