Help - My Windows 7 PC Won't Boot
Posted on 2012-04-04
Last night my W7 PC froze twice - the mouse and keyboard did not respond. I needed to hold the power key down and do a hard reboot.
The PC will boot in Safe Mode. I check Event Viewer and there is a sea of red errors - I would say between 30 and 50 errors are related to Fprot AntiVirus. They say:
FPAVServer.exe, EventID 4 request start for driver failed.
There are also 15-20 errors related to the application search. They say:
EventID 7042, Application Search error, Gatherer, The content index catalog is corrupt, 0xc0041801 0xc0041801. I also see EventID 3028 and 3029 related to Application Search.
I tried system restore to a point a week ago. When I booted the computer it hung up on the "Welcome" screen. I then booted, pressed F8, went into Start-Up repair, it did not detect anything, Rebooted and same problem.
Not sure if this is relevant, but yesterday afternoon I received a wireless touchpad from Logitech. The unit was turned on near the PC. I did not plug in the dongle or configure it. This morning I thought maybe the Logitech touchpad was interfering with my Logitech wireless mouse. I took the touchpad out of the room, but the problem remained. I am really stumped here. Thanks for any suggestions!
