After battleing some spyware and malware, xp spyware 2009, and antimalware 2009, I cleaned up things with malwarebyte and spybot. I thought that things were going good, until the other morning I noticed that the computer was just rebooting itself over and over again. It will make it past the login screen and then display the background picture. then it would shutdown and reboot, and keep doing this. I can hit F8 to bring me to the (safe mode choices?) screen. I have tried several of the different choices, with no luck at all.
I did switch it to 'not shutdown upon error' then I got blue screen.


STOP: 0x0000000A (0x000000B0, 0x00000002, 0x00000000, 0x8052D4Da)

Beginning dump of physical memory
Physical memory dump complete.

I mainly just want to get my business folder and of course my music and photos off of the hard drive.
Any help would be great.

You could hook it up as a slve drive on another computer and get what you want from the drive
Or you could invest in a IDE/SATA USB CABLE 2.0 and connect drive to the molex and usb 2.0 ide/sata
that way youcan get the folder in question............
but the blue screen with the ERROR is to me unrepairable....i got a harddrive with the same error
i ran the repair from windows cd and it did nothing so i bought a ide/sata usb 2.0 cable
got my info that way ...hope it works for you if you choose to it that way




Those are a few links

Here's a link to a description of the error message: http://aumha.org/a/stop.php#0x0a
As this was an infected system, it's likely that it's inserted something into your startups that's preventing the system from starting.

Since you cannot boot into Safe Mode, your repair options are limited. I agree with mme that it'd be best to recovery your stuff before proceeding with any attempted repairs (then you won't have to worry about erasing your stuff).

I'd suggest trying a repair install of Windows first (this is supposed to leave your data and programs intact). If you have Internet Explorer 7 installed, read this link first: http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=917964 Then the instructions for the repair install are here: http://www.michaelstevenstech.com/XPrepairinstall.htm

If that doesn't fix it, then you'll have to format your hard drive and do a clean install of Windows ( http://www.michaelstevenstech.com/cleanxpinstall.html )
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.
