Well for a few weeks now every once in awhile when I go to log on to my laptop, it wont accept my password until i press capslock on, then once I am logged on things seem ok except that with the caps lock ON it actually types as if it is off. I figured my laptop was just going south until this morning it did it and I tried to restart my computer( oh yeah the actual restart button wont do anything) so I tried shutting down. When I tried that it took forever to respond and then showed a ending program window that said...get this
"ending program "FONT CAPTURE"

Please help what do I do?
Im running windows XP home edition service pack 2
with... no... virus... protection... i know dumb right but help me fix it
PLEASE:thumbsup:

what'd I tell you about them goat porn sites?!


font capture is associated with Adobe Acrobat Reader...try uninstalling it and downloading and installing the latest version from adobe.com

after you do that let me know if you're still having issues and we'll go from there.

Lose windows.....install linux. Problem solved.
That's not really helping him now though, is it? Plus the learning curve would probably be so significant where it installing Linux will be more burdensome than putting up with whatever problem he has in the first place.

Good suggestion, wrong person in which to suggest it.

Install a free AV program like AVG and do as Wikid said. :)

As long as your system will start up and run, the antivirus program will work. You may have to reboot a few times.

There are times to be condescending and/or uppity and there are times to be helpful...rarely do they occur at the same time. I concur with OJ. Wholesalely (is that a word) blowing away your operating system (and everything in the file system) to deal with stability issues is stupid...even for the technically enlightened.

awesome thanks everybody, I went through and installed the Avast software and I havent had the problem reoccur yet, but it was just a once in a while thing, so we'll see.
Also I think when I get back from physical therapy today I will take your advice Wicked, and uninstall adobe, and get the latest version.

Thanks again everybody and I will let you know what happens. :thumbsup:

That would only result in more questions for the IT guys on this forum. :thumbsup:

Wasn't try to be condescending....sorry if I seemed so. I think Ubuntu linux is very user friendly...it's what I started on as a linux newb and the community support for this OS is huge. The distributions have gotten progressively easier to work with....more functionality included on the install without having to dick around with a bunch of command line prompts.

Bonus, you can install Ubuntu (or whatever distribution you prefer) on a separate partition so you can dual boot windows or linux. You still have your Windows OS but the chance to play around with open source software until your comfortable with how it works. I am now running all Linux and the only thing I use my windows partition for is gaming.....and that is on my desktop. My laptop is running Ubuntu with a virtual windows XP machine for when windows is the only thing that will work....which isn't very often.

You should check it....www.ubuntu.com

This is kind of what my desktop looks like...not exactly but it has the capability to do all of this:
