Questions and Answers

I had been downloading two antivirus programs and Windows crashed. Windows opens but with a black screen. How to solve this problem?

Windows crashed; VBS plugin cannot be loaded; Windows cannot be opened.


When downloading two antivirus programs for your Windows 7, you might have had an episode where the system hard-disk drive ("C:", usually) got full.

You will need to enter your BIOS when restarting your computer (the key combination to enter the BIOS can be different from motherboard to motherboard, and the combination is usually displayed on the screen when booting up the PC) and configure it to run from an optical disc drive or USB.

From another computer, create Dr. Web LiveDisk on a blank CD, DVD, BD, or USB and boot up from the burnt medium.

When you load LiveDisk, launch the Dr. Web Scanner first. Then, you can run File Manager and open your \win\c:. Find any files that are possible to move (for example, the recently downloaded files) elsewhere to clean up some space for booting up. You can move files to another \win\ disk drive. Free up several gigabytes and reboot your computer. Do not boot from the LiveDisk and see if Windows 7 loads.
