One of my flock reports that when she boots up the XP window comes up then Dr Waytson comes up with an arcane message- and will not let the user enter password etc. I have agreed to 'Go See' on Monday I have downloaded and printed off some M/S support on how to disable Dr Watson. But that will be a fat lot of good if as she reports- cant get into to the 'Run' field. I have in mind that Safe mode may be a way in- from the scant info I have. Any other thoughts please?
The machine is an elderly E machine with Basie XP- not service packs Save mode did not get around Dr Watson either and Explorer kept closing - So big problems. Applied the E machine machine repair/rescue disk and all it would do was to run Symantec Ghost and then a total reinstall.
I asked the owner if all was safely backed up She gave me a stare - then went to a cupboard and brought forth a box of 10 CD-R- My son gave me these years ago and said something 'Like use these for back up -- but he didn't tell me what to do. Ho hum.
