Booting from F8 will bring me back to the last automatic update from Microsoft, yesterday,..... right like it's a good working day
My screen looks like: no wallpaper, no desktop icons (just a black screen with gadgets loaded: clock and weather etc)
My start menu is not working
I have the quick launch toolbar so I'm able to open IE and get online.
I read on some site that someone else had a similar problem and was advised by Microsoft to reinstall a parallel version of Vista, he didn't
he installed : RC for Windows 7 !!
will this help? would it be temporary?
if it will help how do I do this?
I really need help
press ctrl alt del to open task manager ,click file ,click new task type explorer.exe
that will get your desktop up and running then run a virus scan and malware scan..
if it comes back clean then goto run type cmd ,open cmd and type sfc /scannow
installing windows 7 wont help ,it would just be a new Os ,u could boot with your vista cd and repair the Os

Thanks for the suggestion
I can open task manager with Control-Alt-Delete
Once there I can close programs only
If I try as you suggested 'file' type in 'explorer.exe'
the screen clashes as is something opened, but I cannot see it. Nor does it show up at the bottom of my black screen.
I can see that this browser is open as well as the Windows TaskManager
This machine is one month out of warranty, the OS is stored on D: drive, I'm sure I made copies of it but I can't find where I put them "in case I need them".....
anything else I can try?
tried booting in safe mode? then running a scan ,press f8 before windows logo appears to get in safe mode
also run sfc /scannow in safe mode
what laptop is it ,on some thay have a recovery partition so by pressing a key like f11 will restore back to factory settings as new

Acer Aspire 16:9 16" screen Can't find the model number
it's 14 months old, just out of warranty, I have a 1 year extended but I cannot find any documents for this laptop or the disks I created just in case of this happening. uuuggg

I'll try re-booting into Safe Mode, even though it suggested I use advance mode, when I tried this last.
Only restores to the last point listed. Yesterday's restore point after it auto updated from Microsoft.
So f8 and save mode it will be (when I return from a Dr. Appt), I'll do a scan then and let you know.
FYI: I've been doing scans all along, but not in safe mode.
Thanks for the suggestion.
When I boot into 'safe mode' I have no function included .
If I allow the laptop to boot normally I at lease have use of the IE to check for solutions. And the right hand lower tray antivirus/spyware programs.
I believe it's a software conflict and the problem APP is: IAAnotif.exe
I do not know how to repair it.
Someone suggestion I use Glary Utilities, when I close and reboot the machine it's the same
I ordered the recovery/start up disks online from Acer, hopefully that will help.
I was thinking maybe I'd be better with with a clean install of Linux, this will no doubt be another clean install, what do you think?/?
Quoted from: http://www.processlibrary.com/directory/files/iaanotif/iaanotif.exe is a process belonging to the Application Accelerator from Intel. It changes the Windows ATA drivers for maximum performance.
Quoted from: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/startups/iaanotif.exe-2074.htmlThis is a valid program, but it is up to you whether or not you want it to run on startup.
Whether or not you need to run this program on startup must be decided by you. If you feel that you want this program starting automatically so that you have it available as needed, then do not disable it.
Quoted from: http://www.file.net/process/iaanotif.exe.htmlFile iaanotif.exe is located in a subfolder of "C:\Program Files" or sometimes in a subfolder of C:\ (mostly C:\Program Files\Intel\Intel Application Accelerator\)...
There is an icon for this program on the taskbar next to the clock. The program has a visible window. iaanotif.exe is not a Windows system file. iaanotif.exe is able to record inputs.
Based on all these, I suggest you check whether the IAAnotif.exe running and causing problems on your PC is legitimate or a malware in disguise. Try running scans with different antispyware programs.
If the IAAnotif.exe is not malware, you may want to try disabling it from start-up. You can use MSCONFIG to do that.
I am not really an expert. That's all I can do for now. If I find anything, I will update this post.

If you try something above that not work you can try this:
I think your shell entry is damaged or appended. Click start and type 'regedit', then
hit <enter>. Expand the branches to reach:
Locate the shell string in the right pane and double click it. Replace or just type again the
contents with just:
Click ok to set the value, then close the registry editor. Restart the
system to see if it holds. If it doesn't, then you likely have some malware
that is damaging the entry.Use rescue disk from Kaspersky to scan virus!
Hope that's work!
