    Default Computer help required

    Hi, I cannot start up computer properly. Gets as far as the log in screen without actually having the log in facility as an option, just a nice blue screen with a little windows xp motif. Have no copy of xp so I don't know admin code. Someone put it on for me a couple of years ago and now they've moved thanks in advance as usual.
    Don't want to clear everything as I have photos of kids on there. And yes I will back them up if I get through to it.

    Press F8 at startup to get to the windows advanced options menu.
    Choose "Last known good" and see if it helps ...

    If its just a blue windows backdrop thats coming up it could be that explorer isn't initialising properly. If so then try the following

    When the backdrop screen comes up
    Press CTRL - ALT - DELETE
    If the Task Manager Button is available click that
    Click on File
    Click on New Task (Run)
    Type explorer in the white box which appears
    Click OK
    That should launch windows explorer - at that point back up everything on the machine and get someone to rebuild it.

    Hope this helps.
