I picked up another Google redirect virus, so I went into SafeMode to run some of the programs recommended in this forum. Now I cannot run Safe Mode or boot up at all.

Anytime I try to boot XP, I receive the Blue Screen of Death and a STOP: 0x0000007E message.

What I've done so far:

I've gone into BIOS setup and tried to disable caching or shadowing (as suggested in the error message), but there's no option to do so. I've also entered Recovery Console, did chkdsk /r. Problem persists after scan.

XP came preloaded and I do not have any disks! I do however have a USB drive and access to another PC, so fortunately I can download whatever I need. I also know how to boot from the USB. I am on a friend's mini that does not have a CD ROM, so burning any files to a CD is not an option!

Any assistance is greatly appreciated!

I'm unsure how to run HJT when my laptop will not run in Safe Mode and cannot boot into Windows properly. The only thing I can do is make changes to bios and run the Recovery Console. Please advise.

Post the brand and model of your pc please. Since it is a laptop you can often get recovery disks to rebuild it. You can usually remove and replace the laptop drive and put the old one in an external usb enclosure to repair and recover your data.

The owner of the netbook would also appreciate the ability to borrow an external cd/dvd burner if you acquired one. :thumbsup:
