Throwing this out there, in the hopes that somebody has an easy step-by-step solution they can offer:
Dotta Numba 2 runs a PC with Windows XP. Apparently, somewhere along the line, she got something nasty onboard — but doesn’t know what or when.
Now, when she starts up, she gets the desktop wallpaper — no applications or icons, and the following error message:
“Data Execution Prevention-
To help protect your computer, Windows has closed this program.
Name: Userinit Logon Application
Publisher: Microsoft Corp
— Close message”
When you click “close message”, you get:
“Userinit Logon Application has encountered a problem and needs to close.”
Oh, and here’s the fun part: She doesn’t have the system restore discs.
As a Mac user, I’m pretty much useless here.
