Hello all,

My sister's HP Notebook has a problem, and I haven't got a clue.

I ran the hardware test in BIOS and everything passed without problems.

As soon as the password is entered, the above happens.

Would really appreciate your help with this. Thank you!

✔ Best Answer
I had the same problem with a computer I was working on. It turned out to be a Norton shell extension that was crashing explorer.exe. So at the login screen, at the bottom right there is the power control icon, reboot the computer but hold the shift key, this will bring you to the recovery console, go to troubleshoot, then startup options. Start the computer in safe mode and remove Norton.

You Sir, are a legend. Thank you very much. You were absolutely right, it was bloody Norton. I followed your instructions and now it works. What's a good alternative to Norton?
