My computer has suddenly stopped booting up fully. I get to the logon screen ok and then to the desktop but then I get a messsage box saying "the application or DLL C:/WINDOWS/System32\UxThemedll is not a valid windows image" The bootup stops there and will go no further. Tried safe mode but again it goes no further. I am left with my desktop picture and no loaded programmes. Please can someone tell me what to do?
To get into Safe Mode properly.Reboot the computer and keep tapping F8 as the computer starts. There are other keys that you can use. Windows logo on the keyboard gets you into all programs.Maybe use your up down button to get you into system restore.Not sure what you type in run box to get you to System Restore.
Hi.If none of your keyboard icons work it looks as though you might have to do a system repair.But you would need to use the original windows disc for that.I have never tried it before but there will be others that can tell you what to do if it comes to that. If you get the Windows icon on the keyboard to work.using your up down right left keys go to help& support.And you can get to system restore that way.click on to undo changes to your computer using system restore.
