Having some trouble with Windows XP

By Davida ·
I used StyleXP to change my log on + bootscreen menu and now i can't get past the system recovery screen. When i try to enter safe mode or any of the other options it just sends me back to the SR Screen.

I have a gateway notebook and i also have my OSD, I just don't know how to use it. I'm completely clueless about most computer stuff and i don't know how to fix this. Any help is appreciated.

Where did you get this product called StyleXP?

If you do a search on StyleXP and use McAfee SiteAdvisor add-on in your browser, the top two hits are marked with a red cross, meaning that those sites have links to sites which distribute software, considered by most people to be "adware, spyware or other unwanted programs".

A spyware application rarely comes just on its own, it brings a number of unwanted applications which can harm your computer and often bring it to a grinding halt.

If this happens on a notebook computer, you may have to bite the bullet and use your recovery CDs from the manufacturer and start from scratch. Remember to install a reputable anti-spyware application, for example Microsoft Windows Defender, AVG Free Anti-Spyware or Spybot Search & Destroy. If in doubt, check the recommendations from McAfee's SiteAdvisor is also a free add-on to your browser which can keep you out of trouble.

By the way, what do you mean by SR Screen? And what is OSD? They are not one's everyday computer jargon.
