Windows 7: Help! nothing works

Help! nothing works

Hello
A while ago I downloaded an adobe program and restarted my computer. When it restarted, it went to the startup repair menu, only that the menu does'nt appear, only the background and mouse. I made a startup repair disc and made the disc drive load first and everything but it does'nt work, it goes to startup repair with no menu. I have no windows 7 install disc and would prefer not to wipe the computer, though I will if I have to. I don't want to pay to get it fixed and am desperate to get it working.
Thanks in advance.

Welcome to Sevenforums creator!
When you boot, right before the windows press F8 many times and a screen will come up with boot options...
Select 'use last known good config', now your windows will boot.

I tried that the next morning and it restarted after displaying the windows logo. Any other suggestions?

Welcome to the windows 7 forums.

What adobe program did you download, and can we assume that it was directly from adobe?

That could be your problem. I would never download adobe products from anyone but adobe.

What was the name of the site?

From my first cut at this, I would assume that the site gave you a bad guy and it totally messed up your PC. I would recommend a re-install of Windows.

This is the only installation method that you can use right now, a clean installation.
Custom Install Windows 7

Please don't start it yet. Do you have a second partition/second HDD/any 16gig pendrive?
