If you mean everything as in my files, I don't have any. I reinstalled Windows just a few hours ago, but I shut down and now it won't start up.

WIN + Pause/Break key combo
WIN is the key with the wavy flag.

Now look down at the bottom of the display.

I had only gotten that message once when my computer messed up. Any other time it has activated normally and no message has come up.

Next time WIn7 won't start up after updates, boot the DVD Repair console and run Startup Repair repeatedly with reboots. System Restore (to before the Updates) is automated in Startup Repair but if it doesn't start, try it manually.

You probably triggered the non-geniune by running random boot repair commands which are all automated now in Startup Repair anyway.

Or MSE flagged a cracktivation on the install as it will. Where did you get Win7?
