Recently had this issue with an Advent laptop where by it would not boot into windows, the message “BOOTMGR is missing” – press Ctrl+Alt Delete to continue was displayed. This occured imediately after installing SP1 for Windows Vista Home Premium. After some serious head scratching and then finally checking the BIOS I find that the boot order has changed from IDE Hdd to USB CD Rom. On changing this back to IDE Hdd it managed to start properly. If you have this problem and need to get into the bios, you’ll usually see which key to press listed as soon as the power button is pressed. failing that try some of the default buttons – F1, F2, Del, Esc or F12. It will depend on which motherboard/manufacturer your pc or laptop is to which button you have to press. Once in the bios settings look for “Boot Order” and adjust accordingly. Be very careful not to change anything else in here as it can be very bad if the wrong setting gets changed. If you live in Milton Keynes or the surrounding area and have a problem similar to this I’m sure we’ll be able to help you – just goto our Computer Repairs page or Laptop Repairs and you’ll be able to arrange for an engineer to visit and repair.

Once again McAffee anti virus fails to protect one of our customers machines, we end up removing and installing a proper anti virus package – Eset Nod32.
This detected the virus (Fake Security Suite) and removed it within seconds.
We swear by this product and have used for some time now, not only does it allow us to quickly and efficiently remove viruses from customers machines, it also gives the customers machine a new lease of life as the memory it uses to run is less than half the amount than say Norton, McAffe, Kasperky etc. If you think you may have a virus and need expert help, don’t hesitate to contact us here
Ok – we’ve seen several machines lately with this virus and so thought we would try and help others remove it
First the Symptoms :-
- Very slow on startup and increasingly gets slower
- Constant pop-ups warning of virus infections
- Desktop is changed to display the image opposite
- Internet explorer will not open any web pages
Removing can be tricky and will take several scans using various tools / programs…
- Boot PC or laptop into “Safe Mode with networking” normally by pressing F8 key as soon as machine is powered on
- Download & Install latest version of Malware Bytes from here
- With network cable plugged ensure Malware Bytes is up to date with latest updates. (Choose “Updates” tab and click “Update”
- Run a full scan using Malwarebytes
- Once it is finished click “select all” to select all nasties that it has found and go ahead and remove them.
- Restart the machine normally
- Goto Internet explorer and then run the Eset Online scanner from here
- Suggest also downloading SuperAntiSpyware free version and get the update and then again run a full scan and remove anything it finds.
- Remove whatever Anti Virus package your using as it’s obviously not doing the job it is meant for and buy yourself a copy of Eset Smart Security from here
