Ok guys, im sure you've seen this message before.
Windows XP professional Sp2
Fx5200 video card
Norton Antivirus Corporate Edition. 8.0
Alright, So my computer has been randomly shutting itself down. I would check the event log after it booted back up, and it said that the system has just restarted after a bug check.
BUT, the majority of times that it shut down was when my AV was trying to scan the machine.
So I thought it could possibly be a virus.
But I also read somewhere that having "bad" memory might cause this, Does anyone know of a way to test the memory (ram) to see if its stable?
And i really cant try any options, cause the Comp is pretty much gone. Cant boot into safe mode, the last known good configuration. I cant even boot into the UBCD4Win Program.
The Blue Screen error that i get now is 0x00000024
Basically this post is to try and find out if theres any ways for me to test the memory to see if its stable, and that in fact it was a virus.
Well thanks for your help guys, I appreciate it.
