I have a computer running Windows XP Pro. When the boot process gets to the Windows splash screen it can barely be seen and then the computer restarts. I have changed power supplies and RAM and no change. I put in the Windows XP Pro cd and did a repair install, as long as the cd is in the drive, Windows will boot fine. but when I take the cd out, it starts resetting itself during boot. It is also the same way if I run chkdsk /r. I have also ran fixmbr and bootfix with no changes. Then when it let me into Windows using the above method, I turned off the restart on error. I reset the computer and got the following BSOD

file xtmqseqs.sys


0x00000050 (0xf6fdcfff, 0x00000001, 0xff285775, 0x00000000)

xtmqseqs.sys - address f7285775 base at f7212000, Datestamp 00000000

Can someone please help me get the computer back up and going?

Not finding that strange file in a Google search is a good enough reason to suspect malware.

Please post a Posted Image in the Am I infected? What do I do? sub-forum with a description of your problem, the steps taken so far, and a link back to this topic (they will want to know why you suspect malware).

Please note: the Malware Response team are always overwhelmed, and it could take a few days to get your first reply. Just be patient and don't "bump" your topic by replying to it.

Good luck. :thumbsup:
