Installed v3 Now PC Will Not Start Up ??!!??


I was told abut v3 being released, to which all the guys behind it I applaud you (:CLP) been waiting for this for my Vista PC.

However… I downloaded it… I installed it… Followed the on screen instructions and restarted my PC as told to… … … .

Now my PC will not start unless I start up in Safe Mode. I get the Win Vista screen briefly flash, then nothing but a black screen and white mouse arrow.

Any Ideas or Help ??

what other software is set to run on start-up on that pc?

Hello –

Similar situation with me. Installed v3, first with D+ activated. First post-install boot ok, but as I start looking around, changing nothing, I get notice that an update is available. The update help page pops up, and KEEPS popping up no matter how many times I close it. After several minutes struggling with that, I finally get to download the update, it installs apparently ok, and asks for a reboot. However, the reboot can’t complete; the system freezes as it’s loading startup programs. Only a reset gets out of the freeze. I then boot into safe mode and uninstall CFP3. Reboot and reinstall, this time with D+ DE-activated. Same thing: Notice of update, an update help screen that won’t stop popping up, finally get to update screen in CFP; the update downloads and installs. Computer freezes on reboot. Uninstall from safe mode and do it all over again.

After 4 iterations of this foolishness, I decide to go back to CFP2.4, which works flawlessly, and wait for fixes.

Here’s the system summary:
Win XP Home SP2 with the following startup programs:
Comodo BOClean 4.25
Spyware Terminator
Avast AV (free edition)
Process Lasso (monitors processes and restrains cpu hogs [user defined])
Core Temp (cpu temperature monitoring utility).

Anyone got any insights??

Finger crossed I’ve attached image correctly of all startup programs.

Also here is my PC spec in case it helps:

  • Windows Vista Home Premium
  • Intel Core2 CPU 640 @ 2.13GHz
  • 2GB RAM
