Hello ,
And :welcome: to the Bleeping Computer Malware Removal Forum
. My name is Elise and I'll be glad to help you with your computer problems.


I will be working on your malware issues, this may or may not solve other issues you may have with your machine.

Please note that whatever repairs we make, are for fixing your computer problems only and by no means should be used on another computer.
  • The cleaning process is not instant. Logs can take some time to research, so please be patient with me. I know that you need your computer working as quickly as possible, and I will work hard to help see that happen.
  • Please reply using the Add/Reply button in the lower right hand corner of your screen. Do not start a new topic.
  • The logs that you post should be pasted directly into the reply. Only attach them if requested or if they do not fit into the post.
  • Unfortunately, if I do not hear back from you within 5 days, I will be forced to close your topic. If you still need help after I have closed your topic, send me or a moderator a personal message with the address of the thread or feel free to create a new one.
You may want to keep the link to this topic in your favorites. Alternatively, you can click the button at the top bar of this topic and Track this Topic, where you can choose email notifications. The topics you are tracking are shown here.

Please click Start > Run, type chkdsk /r and press enter. Type Y and press enter to schedule a disk check for the next reboot.
Restart your computer and let the disk check run unhindered. Note - this may take some time.

When done, let me know if anything has changed/improved.

regards, Elise

Hi Elise,

When I bought this computer, it didn't come with a disk. Just the sticker. So, no, I do not have the XP Pro disc.

Please try to run the following tool. It might throw some errors; it is quite old, but should still do the job.

  • Please download Dial-A-Fix from one of the following mirrors:
  • Extract the zip file to your desktop.
  • Double click Dial-a-Fix.exe to start the program. Note - you might see an error message regarding Internet Explorer. Just ignore this and continue.
  • Press the green double checkmark box (Looks like this: Posted Image)
  • UNcheck Empty Temp Folders, as well as Adjust Time/Date in the prep section. The prep section should then look like this:

    Posted Image

    Posted Image
  • Click on go
  • Exit/Close Dial-A-Fix

regards, Elise

Hi Elise,

OK, have run that program and..... so far so good. Still have problems with a creative xmod speaker system plug
in but will take that up with 'Creative'; see what happens.

Thank you SO much for your time and trouble.

I truly appreciate all your help.

If this BSOD starts up again, I'll scream, cry, kick, and. and. and. sigh. LOL

Take Care
