Here's the problem:
I had been running a trial version of Norton SystemWorks 2008 (Including GoBack2008)
which had expired. I had already paid for an update to the Norton AV 2006 that was
running on another computer so I decided to remove the SW2008 and reinstall
the AV 2006 (3 machine license). When I did so it complained about there already being
Norton products on the machine and to download and run the Norton S/W removal tool.
I did that and upon rebooting after running the tool got a BSOD with stop code 8e,
no device driver listed. I went through the entire gamut of things to do when that
happens, including a repair-install and the Stop 8e would keep happening. Safe mode
works as well as safe mode does, you just can't do much. I've removed my video driver
and tools, ran MemTest86+ overnnight with no errors, reduced the overclock back to
the CPU factory specs, everything I could find. The location specified (parameter 2
in the BSOD display) is consistantly 0x80538F89, which should be an address in the culpret.
So herein attached are my minidumps in zipped format. Being stuck with only being able to
run in safe mode keeps me from being able to do the analysis myself, so I appreciate the
help I get here.
