Hi guys,

I'm hoping you'd be able to help me or at least guide me as to what to do with some problem I'm having starting up the computer.

I've had it for about 3 years now and I never had a problem like this one till this morning, when I went to start it up everything seemed fine.. till it actually went to the welcoming screen and makes that lovely "windows welcoming tune" then it went off like a broken record for about 2 seconds, then to a blue screen where it starts to process some sort of security issue (this lasts for about 5 seconds tops) and then it restarts by itself.

I started it several times experiencing the same result. I can only start it on safe mode, which is what I'm doing now... It is running spybot and found about 10 errors which have been removed.

Can someone please help me? :)

Thanks

From safe mode, let's try this:

Download/install BlueScreenView, http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/blue_screen_view.html .

Double-click BlueScreenView.exe file.

When scanning is done, Edit/Select All...then File/Save Selected Items.

Save the report as BSOD.txt.

Open BSOD.txt in Notepad, copy all content and paste it into your next reply.

Louis

Louis,

The link doesn't work. I managed to get the computer running, I just started it in safe mode several times and then my wife ran some malwarebyte or something like that... It keep giving me the same problem.

Then after I just started the system as "last working configuration" or something like that, ever since that It's been working, I deleted some files that I had on my computer (too big, thought at one point that I would have too much going on my HD)

I wouldn't mind, however tinkering around to make sure this doesn't happen again, or what the cause of this was.

Thank you.

Glad you have it working :)...and thanks for the info re the link (I fixed).

Without an error message...IMO, it's almost impossible to determine why these glitches occur. The fact that there is an option for Last Known Good...says to me that it happens frequently and no one may know what causes it...but there is a workaround for it.

If it were me...I would do two things:

a. Run the chkdsk /r command on the system partition (Start/Run...type chkdsk /r and hit Enter...type Y in new screen and hit Enter...reboot. The command will run than boot into XP).

b. Run the sfc /scannow command to replace any missing/damaged system files.
