I have fixed virus issues before , but I have an issue that doesn't allow me to get at the things I need to fix them. I think it is some sort of spyware issue, but am not sure.
My computer locked up and when I went to reboot, it locked up soon after the reboot.
Since then, I have tried to loginw/safe mode in order to access my virus scan stuff, but I get the blue screen of death.
When I try to login normally, or by using the last known good configuration, it also locks up.
I don't know how to proceed since I can't access the normal means of resolving a virus. Any help as to where to go next would be helpful.
EDIT: Additional info
I am using XP. My computer was giving me a new hardware installed message when it locked up. My error message on the screen of death was the 050 message.
