Vista keeps recycling and ends with screen that gives start options:
Please insert (Vista program disk) (set language) (click repair option)
I cannot get to any of the above. Startup disk is running, but does nothing.
Safe mode with networking
Safe mode with command prompt
Last known good... (restore)
Start windows normally
I have tried each option twice to no avail.
I have tried F8 to no avail.
I have tried F10 to no avail.
I have a Dell laptop, E1705, Vista Home Premium, RAM upgraded to 2GB.
The problem, I'm certain is Shield Deluxe Firewall 2009. I wanted it to run because I haven't in a while. When I did it indicated that there were problems with it. It asked if I wanted to fix it, and said yes. It could not find the problem and asked me if I wanted to submit a (ticket). Then it said it needed to update something, and that it would restart the PC.
That's when it hit the fan. I have been recycling ever since.
Any help anyone can afford me will be greatly appreciated. Jim H.
PS: I have to go to therapy and the doctor. See you in a while.
