I installed Pinnacle CD/DVD 8.3 but it would nto complete and since then when I switch the PC off it does not switch off but hangs on a multi-coloured vertically striped screen. I deinstalled ran CrapCleaner and easycleaner but problem still remians. System restore does not work. How do I get my PC back into working order?

Try a system file scan Start/Run/type sfc /scannow

I am assuming XP (you will need the disc)

Try using the safe mode(press F8 during startup) and use the 'Last good known configuration'.
