Hello. I was working with a member in the HJT forum to get rid of several nasty vundo viruses and probably a ton more trojans. We were successful, but then about 3 days later my computer crashed. When I turn my computer on, it asks me if I want to start from last good known config., start windows normally, etc. Any option I choose I am led to the blue error screen about 5 seconds later. This is my error message on the blue screen:


Technical Information:

*** STOP: 0x00000024 (0x00190203, 0x865072B8, 0xc0000102, 0x00000000)

Any help would be greatly appreciated. I did install recovery console, I have 3 CD's that came with my computer...one of them is a microsoft office small business edition 2003, a business contact manager update for microsoft outlook 2003 and a mcafee security center reinstallation cd. Am I going to have to reformat?

Thank you in advance for your help.

The suggested solution for this error is to run Chkdsk /f /r from your repair console. There is a detailed tutorial for doing this that you can read here. The only thing that I didn't see there was the fact that you will have to going into the BIOS and make your CD-ROM the first item in the boot order so that the computer will boot from the disc.

The link in this post does not work, please use the one in my next post.

That hyperlink does not work and I cannot find the topic in tutorials. Also, what disk am I going to use?

You'll need your XP installation CD in order to install the Recovery Console
If you do not have an installation CD, but do have an i386 directory on your hard drive, you can install it by typing:
C:\i386\winnt32.exe /cmdcons (presuming that the i386 directory is located in the root of the C: drive).
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.
