Hello all. I'm constantly coming with google/yahoo/misc. redirects linking me to random websites and occasionally websites saying that my computer is infected. I'm running Windows XP Home Edition SP3. I was searching on the internet for a comic to download during the time and came upon a questionable website. The BSOD occured after I tried to exclude a number of start up services and services using msconfig.

All I've done is start up in Safe Mode with Networking and gone into msconfig and excluded all startup programs except for avgtray, atiptaxx, dumprep 0 -k, ctfmon. As for services, I've unchecked all that aren't Microsoft Services.

BSOD error is given as DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_oR_EQUAL
STOP: 0X000000D1 (0XE1DCA000, 0X00000002, 0X00000000, 0XEBD810AD5)

Thank you!

Undo everything you did in MSConfig and see if it will boot back into Windows.

Okay, I undid everything I did on msconfig and now the BSOD is a constant recurrence now. I'm currently in Safe Mode with Networking. I'm awaiting further instructions.

Before we start fixing anything you should print out these instructions or copy them to a NotePad file so they will be accessible. Some steps will require you to disconnect from the Internet or use Safe Mode and you will not have access to this page.

Please download Dr.Web CureIt and save it to your desktop. DO NOT perform a scan yet.
alternate download link
Note: The file will be randomly named (i.e. 5mkuvc4z.exe).

Reboot your computer in "Safe Mode" using the F8 method. To do this, restart your computer and after hearing your computer beep once during startup (but before the Windows icon appears) press the F8 key repeatedly. A menu will appear with several options. Use the arrow keys to navigate and select the option to run Windows in "Safe Mode".

Scan with Dr.Web CureIt as follows:
  • Double-click on the randomly named file to open the program and click Start. (There is no need to update if you just downloaded the most current version
  • Read the Virus check by DrWeb scanner prompt and click Ok where asked to Start scan now? Allow the setup.exe to load if asked by any of your security programs.
  • The Express scan will automatically begin.
    (This is a short scan of files currently running in memory, boot sectors, and targeted folders).
  • If prompted to dowload the Full version Free Trial, ignore and click the X to close the window.
  • If an infected object is found, you will be prompted to move anything that cannot be cured. Click Yes to All. (This will move any detected files to the C:\Documents and Settings\userprofile\DoctorWeb\Quarantine folder if they can't be cured)
  • After the Express Scan is finished, put a check next to Complete scan to scan all local disks and removable media.
  • In the top menu, click Settings > Change settings, and uncheck "Heuristic analysis" under the "Scanning" tab, then click Apply, Ok.
  • Back at the main window, click the green arrow "Start Scanning" button on the right under the Dr.Web logo.
  • Please be patient as this scan could take a long time to complete.
  • When the scan has finished, a message will be displayed at the bottom indicating if any viruses were found.
  • Click Select All, then choose Cure > Move incurable.
  • In the top menu, click file and choose save report list.
  • Save the DrWeb.csv report to your desktop.
  • Exit Dr.Web Cureit when done.
  • Important! Reboot your computer because it could be possible that files in use will be moved/deleted during reboot.
  • After reboot, post the contents of the log from Dr.Web in your next reply. (You can use Notepad to open the DrWeb.cvs report)

No, I still can't boot normally.

Should I post the dumps for the BSOD? If so, i can't seem to remember the directory for the dump files.

I found the minidumps and put them all into an archived file available on rapidshare (I couldn't find a way to upload files onto the forum).

Hope this helps and once again, thanks so much.

Right click on the C drive in Explorer and go Properties > Tools > Check Now (under Error Checking). Check both boxes then click "Start Now". A message will pop up saying that Error Checking will run after you restart the computer. Restart the computer and Error Checking will run automatically after the restart. After itís finished it will restart into Windows automatically.

I get an error saying that Windows was unable to complete the disk check. Is this the same as the "restart" pop up notification?

Go Start > Run and type "cmd".

Then type "chkdsk /p"

When it said that Windows was unable to complete the disk check did it ask if you want to schedule a check for the next reboot. If so check this option and then reboot.

No, no such option came up. Maybe this will help. I'm currently in Safe Mode with Networking again.
