    Turn off "System Restore" by going to Control Panel, System, Advanced, System Protection and uncheck any checked boxes... Start the 8-Steps again. Run the scans again and take care of any detected malware and restart. When the 8-steps and scans are clean, reenable System Restore

    thank you for your replay, I wasn't able to Turn off "System Restore" because I can't log in, in addition the safe mode doesn't work, I got this message: windows activation.
    an unauthorized change was made to windows. windows has discovered a change that will result in limited windows functionality. use the link below to find out how to fix the windows. Here is the link:[/url]
    An off course I can't open the link, when I minimize the web page there is not desktop, no icons, no start, nothing only a black screen, then I got another message basically says my windows in not original ( probably that's why I couldn't updated windows in the last few weeks). My windows vista is original I got it when I bought the pc What a frustrating situation I don't want to loose all my family's pictures probably 2000 pics, I have some in my iphone but not all of them, well thank you for your time.

    You are probably going to have to have a fresh install of Vista done by someone
