  •   Please help. Yesterday it was absolutly fine, then i went to watch tv so i thought i should turn off my pc to give it a chance to cool down. Then when i come back about two hours later and i select my account is sais loading your personal settings and then it does nothing. I've tried it several times, waiting ten minutes for it to respond on each of them. I am currently in safe mode to do this but i'd like to be able to log in normally.
    Un-fortunatly when i bought this pc it was vista and i did'nt want vista so i told the man to change it over to xp so he did but because of that i don't have a back-up cd.

  • Have you tried performing a System Restore? I assume that you are able to login into SafeMode and not on Normal mode as you stated. You may perform a System Restore when in SafeMode and try to revert back to when everything was still working.
