my computer recently became infected with god knows what
everytime i boot my computer it brings me to a blue screen saying:

A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage
to your computer.


If this is the first time you've seen this stop error screen.
restart your computer. If this screen appears again, follow
these steps:

Check to make sure any new hardware or software is properly installed.
If this is a new installation, ask your hardware or software manufacturer
for any windows updates you might need.

If the problem continue, disable or remove any newly installed hardware
or software. Disable BIOS memory options such as caching or shadowing.
If you need to use safe mode to remove or disable components, restart
your computer, press F8 to select Advanced Startup options, and then select Safe Mode.

Technical information:

*** STOP: 0x000000ED (0x8234DE30, 0xC0000032, 0x00000000, 0x000000000)

i also recently tried to download a recovery iso burning image program on a blank cd and tried to boot from it on my hp pavilion mx90 and was unsuccessful
my computer does not run on windows XP but instead still runs on Windows 98

i have no leads on what to do and im desperate to solve this problem
Please help!

first i would download the diagnostic software from the hard drive manufacturers web site and test the drive for problems. if it passes you could try to repair the master boot record with a 98 boot disk and run fdisk /mbr
