window 7 error

after windows start-up logo, i get a black screen with the mouse cursor only....
safe mode options- the same occurs
no last known config available
windows 7 rescue disk, no avail...

i don't think this is caused by a virus... we run eset and avast on this machine and both are constantly updated.

this occurred after some windows updates or what else could be the cause....

thanx

You should only run one anti-virus product, either Eset or Avast.

Running two simultaneously will cause a lot of issues, possibly even what you are experiencing now!

I agree with PaulNSW, pick one or make sure they not doing the same thing.
As in one handles webprotection and the other one real-time scanning , dont have both do the same...

If it's just one machine, boot up a Windows PE and make sure you backup important files if they are not already backed up. From here you could either try to troubleshoot by accessing your eventlog or just start a repair installation with a Windows 7 installation DVD/USB.

we've been running these two virus programs for almost a year now... didn't have any problem since.

it's not good to have more than  2 on but I'll rather go for the repair option for now...

created a repair disk from a different machine, no avail...
are there download links available because i don't have the system disk with me

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

What error do you get when creating a repair disk? Are you creating it from another Windows  7 with the same arch? (x86 / x86_64) ?

The only way that I know of to download the Windows 7 DVD is via Technet or MSDN and you would need an account with the proper access for that (check your MS licens papers).

Another option is system recovery CD if it's a OEM PC. If you lost the recovery partition you download tools from the manufacturer (Lenovo,HP,Dell etc) if not download them.. buy them and have them sent to you.

start-up repair... no avail, so i did a system restore as it was caused by some faulty hp printer updates.
