Vanilla Forums has been nominated for a second time in the CMS Critic "Critic's Choice" awards, and we need your vote! Read more here, and then do the thing (please).
Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
Recently I got a message in Vista saying something like, "your machine is infected with a virus, your computer will reboot in 60 seconds", or something similar.
Now, the issue is that the computer "hangs" on the boot screen, the screen that says "Press DEL to enter setup, Press TAB to display BIOS POST message."
I cannot F8 into safe mode, and I tried the Vista recovery disk to no avail. Every time I boot, it hangs. The hard drive just isn't coming on.
I do not have my Vista disk on hand as I just moved and I have no idea what box it may be in. I'm looking, though. I also have access to a separate Vista machine that I suspect I can use to make a boot disk.
