Hi! Recently, my husband was browsing and a window popped up saying he needed to download Active X to view the page properly. OK I have had the "discussion" about his compulsive clicking disorder and usually he x's out but he has a new computer with Windows Vista and things look a little diferent to him and he confused Active X with DivX I think and clicked OK. So the computer clicked and shut off. Now it starts up, shows the Gateway screen and starts to load and goes right to Startup Repair and then says Windows could not fix this problem click finish to shutdown. I have tried everything, system restore, start in safe mode and nothing will work, it just keeps shutting down. I have no clue what to do as I cannot even get it to load to get to my handy dandy virus scanner lol. Any ideas? Please and thank you.
