Dear All,

last night i've downloaded this software click here

and then afterward my pc become blank.

the message i receive is this: whence i click on the first mesaage as an OK it appears like this: error loading explorere.exe you must reinstall windows.

and then after ok another message appears which is this: the msvcrt.dll file linked to missing export ntdll.rtlgenten version number.

i did the command promt only cd windows\options\cabs which is three times i've installed from hard drive but the message shown above is still there so none happen.

Thanks in advance

reboot into dos and run/type scanreg/ restore and you should have 5 previous occassions pc was ok, choose one of those and you should be ok, then go get a better rated anti spyware.

I will go with johnyrocker on this one. A two star rating.That would put most folk off from downloading it.

it might work but you should have a restart facility.

Hi guys,

the problem i have is that i can not access to my main screen which the one i used to access and i dont have any cd to use them.

The main screen its blue and blank which two message box which i've explaned in my 1st topic.

Did you try last good configuration when in safe mode.Or does the screen not work there either.

What appears to have happened is that the installation has overwritten a vital Windows file (msvcrt.dll) with another (its own) version, and that is what has killed your machine. This problem was a continual nuisance with earlier versions of Windows, but did not usually affect the operating system, only individual programs. If you cannot manage to roll back the system as suggested above, no version of Windows is going to start if it cannot run Explorer.exe. You have no other option but to reinstall Windows in this situation. You seem to have tried that already from your hard drive without success, but this time you may need to reformat, so the Windows setup files need to copied to CD.
