Hi All

My housemate has a packard bell laptop running Windows Vista, updates were applied over the weekend and now we have two problems:

When you login past the username and password screen the screen goes into loop like it is appearing to be installing updates but it just goes to a loop for ages and doesnt so anything.

Also when you log into safe mode, a message comes up all the time saying Windows Exploerer has stopped working. I can get it to last for a few mins before it comes back.

I have tried restore point to a week ago, last known good config, in safe mood ran cc cleaner.

All I need to do before I format the laptop is to copy the pictures folder but when I do this through commaand prompt using Xcopy the pictures appear to copy but they arent on the externall hard disk drive!

Help!!!
