Recently I began getting the infamous BSOD with the following error messages:
STOP 0x0000008E (0xC0000005, OxF7899082, OxB96F9B94, 0x00000000) followed by SDActMon2k.sys - Address F7899082 base at F7898000, datestamp 491800bb.
It also mentions checking Disk Space as well as BIOS Updates - Disable Bios Memory options - caching or shawdowing.
My computer has enough disk space and memory so that's not it. I haven't knowingly downloaded anything recently. I regularily clean out history, temp internet files, etc. I've gone into Safe Mode to try to run Reg Cure, Spyware Scanners, etc...but only some operate in Safe Mode, and anytime I try to do anything in regular mode it only allows me approx 15 seconds before it goes to the BSOD once I start up. I guess I'm not familiar with how to check the BIOS options.
Some additional info that may or may not be related - I am also getting an error message from my Kaspersky anti-virus stating File black.lst is missing or corrupted. Of course I haven't been able to try fixing that with the updater or uninstalling Kaspersky because I can only operate in Safe Mode right now. In addition, I read somewhere that the SDA message may be related to Spyware Detector...which I also have on my computer...could Spyware Detector be the problem ?
Obviously I'm trying at all costs to avoid having to wipe out my computer and set everything back up from scratch, so any suggestions are much appreciated.
