Hello..Whenever I try to boot up my laptop I get a message on screen saying..

"LogonUIexe-Bad Image

C:\PROGRA -2\SearchProtect\Bin\SPVC4Loader.dll is either not designed to run on windows or it contains an error. "

Any ideas how to resolve this problem please?

"Can't access my laptop due to message"

What happens when you click the OK button in that message window?

What operating system windows 7?

You are going to have to do a Start Up repair - either by tapping F8 as it boots and get into the advance tools menu or by booting from a windows DVD.

To answer your questions...It is windows 7, when I click continuously on OK It gets me to the shortcuts on the desktop but none of them respond when clicked on. When I continually tap on f8 it takes me to 'Advanced Boot Option' with a list of options and then I don't know which option to take. any further advice please?
