Resolved Question:

I asked how do I stop American Megatrends from popping up at the startup of my computer? And I did what you told me to do and I cleared everthing but Norton 360. Shutdown for 1/2 hour or longer then restarted and it still pops up at the beginning of my startup.

Customer: replied 4 years ago.
When I first turn on the computer. Then when I shutdown the computer the second time my desktop appears. But MSN is my homepage.
Expert:  Ansh P. replied 4 years ago.

1. Have you installed any software related to that earlier?

2. Since when this occurring?

3. What are the messages/options in that AMI screen?

Customer: replied 4 years ago.
The only thing I've installed were games. The problem started last Friday June 18 after I did a virus scan Thursday Nite I went to bed and when I started my computer that was the first thing I saw. I can't remember all it says but it a black full wide screen with options F1-F12 and F12 I think is to reboot but none of these buttons seem to work so that when I Alt, Control, Delete and restart and then my desktop appears.

Sorry, but you have to restore it to much earlier date, say some date in may would be fine. This is because the problem started in June 18th. Do this and let me know, if that works. Thanks.
