spywear terminator - unable to load configuration

  eysha 13:44 14 Apr 2008

I downloaded this programme after reading pc advisor's newsletter and it has caused a lot of problems. Each time i start up the computer i get this message - unable to load configuration -
How do i correct this problem as this programme must have deleted it and i don't want to wipe the harddrive

Can you start in Safe Mode? if so use System Restore

Or even Last known Good Configuration,

Thanks rawprawn but i have done all of that and nothing works. I don't want to wipe so i am looking for a solution before i have to do that as a last resort.

Don't wipe your drive, try Repair XP (I am assuming XP) that way you won't lose your data.

Are you saying you couldn't start in safe mode or that System Restore didn't work?

yes i was able to start in safe mode and i did try a system restore too but they didn't work. is Repair XP safe? thanks.

  rawprawn 16:16 14 Apr 2008

Yes follow the instructions carefully.

Okay, i will do it and thanks. if it works it will save me a load of time and frustration too.
