    While Vista is not my favorite operating system, if it is installed on a solid material that supports, set up correctly, and don't abuse not the end user, Vista behaves very well. So if you are having problems with Vista, I suspect that the problem is really caused by the last factor mentioned in my previous sentence. I choose the word "mcafee [sic]" in that mess above, and who speaks to me a lot of the end user in this case. MS - MVP - Elephant Boy computers - don't panic!

  • Updated my computer to Windows Vista Service pack 2 for x 64 function foires systems

    Okay, so I have recently updated this Windows Vista Service pack 2 for x 64-based systems.

    After the update and restarting, I connected only to find myself staring at a blank white screen. However, I managed to hit the keys ctrl + alt + delete and go to the Task Manager to launch explorer.exe through the "new task...". ' button.

    This brings me to my normal desktop, but none to start startup programs and CPU usage is 100% which makes the performance of my laptop more slow.

    Sometimes I try to restart the laptop and it starts normally after the connection, but that happens only about 15% or less of the time.

    Is there a way I could resolve this problem and I function normally again?


    I don't have the CD of Windows Vista or install, so I can't really replace him.

    Hi DaColossus,

    Method 1

    I suggest that you perform the system restore before installing Windows vista service Pack 2 on the computer.

    System Restore: frequently asked questions

    Method 2

    Once the service pack 2 for Windows vista is uninstalled from the computer, I would say that repair you system files on the computer by running SFC scan.

    The analysis may take some time, so be patient. Windows allows to fix corrupt or missing files it finds. If the information of the installation CD is required to fix the problem, you may be asked to insert your Windows Vista installation CD.
