    so im at my friends house trying to find a file that is on this old computer,
    its windows xp, i know iknow, getting a mac will fix that problem

    but anyway
    it boots up
    normal screen comes up,
    then a pictures covers everything
    and it goes back and forth, then stays on the picture

    i can do the ctrl alt delete and that pops up, then i can try and run a file through file new task, but i forgot what to do,
    i haven't been on here in a while.

    i tried going in safe boot but when im there it just windows xp in the bottom two corners and is all black with some writing up top , there is now tool bar or anything i can open or do.


    any help would be much appriciated

    and i need some file off it
    after i get this im doing a fresh install


    there is some program called vrmonsvc.exe and its taking up all the cpu and making it run at 100%.
    i cant stop it, it wont allow me to.

    Get a Linux boot disk and copy the file off to a USB flash drive. Check to see what OEM sticker you have on the tower and then find a compatible Windows disc.
