Hello guys, recently i downloaded a patch for my PC to allow me to use custom Themes off the internet i followed the usual install procedure and then was asked to restart my computer. Once restarted my screen was totaly black with a Windows error message in the middle saying: LogonUI.exe- Bad Image, all of my screen is black apart from this message and i canot do anything but go into the Boot menu on start up of the PC. Really urgently need help i dont care if i have to put the PC back to defualt and wipe everything off but the OS please help me out guys things ive already tried include: Spamming F8 on start up and trying all of the options but sadly i do not have a saved point of recovery. By the way i canot find my Windows disc that came with the computer. Really regret downloading that stupid thing now and i know i was a fool for doing so but please Help me out.
Thanks in advance if i get any replies.

Hello Jdmxrider, thank you for contactinf the TechSupportForums!

Can you boot into safe mode?

If you can try to use a system restore while in safe mode.

To do this:

Restart your computer, and then press and hold F8 during the initial startup to start your computer in safe mode with a Command prompt.

Use the arrow keys to select the Safe mode with a Command prompt option.

If you are prompted to select an operating system, use the arrow keys to select the appropriate operating system for your computer, and then press ENTER.

Log on as an administrator or with an account that has administrator credentials.

At the command prompt, type %systemroot%\system32\restore\rstrui.exe, and then press ENTER.

Follow the instructions that appear on the screen to restore your computer to a functional state.

Hey Techtech200, I tried doing what you said when the command prompt opens it already has C:\windows\system32> i then type in %systemroot%\system32\restore\rstrui.exe but it says it is not recognised as an iternal or external command, operable program or batch file. Not sure what im doing wrong :S.

Open System Restore by clicking the Start button , clicking All Programs, clicking Accessories, clicking System Tools, and then clicking System Restore.* If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.

if you can't see anything then press Ctrl + Alt + Del and press "new task" and type "explorer.exe"
the start menu should now be there

Note: if Ctrl + Alt + Del doesn't do anything then press "WinKey + R" and type "explorer.exe" there
