Hello and thanks in advance
I have a computer with XP Home SP3 installed on it. I got the computer with a HAL.DLL error (it was brought into the shop for viruses). I did a repair installation of the OS to correct the problem so I could continue with the virus removal.
Once the repair had finished running it booted into the login screen for windows. Once I try to log into one of these accounts it asks me to activate again, which is alright and I see it a bit. Except this time, the GUI with the all the information needed to activate does not pop up. It just hangs with the users background and nothing else. Mouse works, and num lock blinks when I command it too.
Thanks a bunch guys..
