I am running XP Pro sp3 and am having an issue with it crashing with a blue screen error at approximately the same time every day, for about the last two months.
The event viewer records it every time as:
'source: save dump; category: none; event ID: 1001; description: the computer has rebooted from a bugcheck. The bugcheck was: 0x1000008e (0xc0000005, 0xb7dbbbf2, 0xab1398e8, 0x00000000). A dump was saved in: C:\WINDOWS\Minidump\Mini030310-01.dmp'
When the anti-virus scan (AVG9.0) I have scheduled for 8am every day scans there is no problem, but when the scan scheduled for 10pm runs, it crashes every time. When i disable the scan at 10pm, it doesn't crash. It will also crash when i attempt to run an anti rootkit scan with AVG.
I've scanned my entire PC with Spybot S&D, and it continually finds over 700 temp files that it cannot delete and that i cant find anywhere i check, and all it finds is browser cookies; I've scanned it with Malwarebytes and it finds nothing; every time i try running SDFix, it shuts down and instead creates a dummy file and runs that instead.
I've tried updating all my drivers and every program i have on my PC,but that hasn't fixed anything.
I haven't tried a fresh reinstall of windows yet, as i can't find my XP boot disk and don't know how to make another without already having one.
If anyone needs more information i will be more than happy to post it for them.
Thanks in advance
