what the dickens is a linera agent?

  mothercranky 20:15 15 Apr 2007

my partner cannot do a thing with his lappy. it is not 12 months old yet, but it wont boot up at all and says "you have encountered a problem with linera agent and need to close"

also it takes forever for anything to appear on the screen at all.the wallpaper appears straight away and then nothing for ages,and then the warning. it then shuts down.

is this a virus or something than can be fixed?

Boot into safemode by tapping F8 on startup and use the system restore.Go back to a date all was ok.


If you have the windows disc,place this in the drive and reboot and try a repair click here

If the disc does not boot,you may need to change the bios booting order to CD rom first device HDD second device.

Linera seems to be an uninstall manager click here. Boot into safe mode and uninstall that program.

If this was a new PC and as you wrote, is under 12months old, your partner or someone must have downloaded "Linera" onto the PC. If it is creating a problem go into Start>Control Panel>Add and Remove, find Linera, then key "Remove" and uninstall the programme
