How important is the "Repair Your Computer" addition to the F8 menu. =>Not that important. But why isn't it in the menu?

What problems does a repair disk create?=>It doesn't create problems. It solves problems. System Repair Disc - Create . A system repair disc is almost the same as F8->repair your computer.

Not being a pro like you, I haven't got the slightest idea.

If you can fix it easily, without forcing me to reinstall my software, then we could try it.

The Bootable Repair Disk was created burned from a Microsoft site. Here's what's on it:

That's a win7 system repair disc. System Repair Disc - Create So no need to download.... you can create it yourself. But NOT you now .... you don't have the "recovery" option on your computer boot menu.... so cannot create a copy to dvd.

You can boot from the dvd and do Startup Repair especially this: Sometimes it may take running a startup repair (3) separate times with restarting the computer after each time before it fully fixes the startup issue. This will fix the missing boot entry

And what about my first two questions:
  1. Does using it force me to reinstall my software?
  2. Will you be able to instruct me to instruct the disk to only change selected windows processing?

You already have the system repair disc you told me. Do Startup Repair
maybe running a startup repair (3) separate times with restarting the computer after each time before it fully fixes the startup issue.
  1. Does using it force me to reinstall my software? =>No, not at all
  2. Will you be able to instruct me to instruct the disk to only change selected windows processing? =>no, but the tutorial does.

Have seen where some proprietary computers do not have the Repair your computer option. I have a laptop that does not. These systems are developed by a corporation that has its very own specifications, etc.


On ScorpionSaver...

Glad all is going well so far!!

Would like for you to use SystemLook once again, and use the info below. Trying to see if any files with an .msi extention show, that may lead to the reinstall of SS. The .msi file extension is an installer package file format.


Please double-click on SystemLook.exe to run the program.
At the SystemLook program console, copy the content inside the following quote box into the main text field (do not include the word Quote):

Quote:
:filefind
*adpeak*
Adpeak.*
*Scorpion*
Scorpion.*
Scorpion Saver
Installer\*.msi
ScorpionSaver.msi
Temp\*.msi
:folderfind
*Scorpion*
Scorpion Saver
*adpeak*
Adpeak.*
Installer\*.msi
ScorpionSaver.msi
Temp\*.msi
:regfind
*Scorpion*
Scorpion
Scorpion Saver
*adpeak*
adpeak
Installer\*.msi
ScorpionSaver.msi
Temp\*.msi
Click the Look button to start the scan.
When finished, a notepad window opens on the Desktop with the results.
Please post the new SystemLook.txt in your reply.


Please run ESET when you can. If nothing else, we will know if we really hammered the last nail on the coffin...

For alternate browsers: (not for Internet Explorer)
Download the ESET Smart Installer > http://download.eset.com/special/eos...taller_enu.exe
Save to your Desktop.
Double click on the esetsmartinstaller_enu.exe icon on your Desktop.
Accept the Terms of Use, etc.

Also, did you, at some point, create a Restore Point on the problem computer, and labelled it: ScorpionSaver?

Yes, HP has a batch of seldom-seen pre-loaded stuff, some of which I deleted like games. Other HP stuff apparently is in conflict with built-in MS routines. But it appears that with your help, and of course others on this Forum, we have been able to resolve most problems without the missing F8 function, so I'm not going to fret over it.

I think Kaktus and others are right about running a Repair from the cd, but I've not done that yet since I don't feel comfortable with my skills at it and don't want to risk creating any new problems. IOW, since we have work-arounds, I think I'll avoid messing with it for now, and perhaps try it after the holidays when all the grandchildren are gone.

This appears to be an important step. Attached is the new txt file and I think SystemLook has found some unwanted stuff. I'll look forward to your comments.

It's running now. I'll report on it later as it looks like a long haul.

Yes, 3 times, and again today!

Again, thanks a ton!
