I am running with Windows XP.
For the few weeks the computer has been crashing and going to the "blue screen of death". When it first happened I just carried on regardless for a week or so. Then for the last week I have been trying to fix the problem myself. Let me tell you what I have done so far.
I have BitDefender antivirus installed on the computer. It however does not function properly anymore. When i do a scan it does not complete and just says it has encountered a critical error. Today i then downloaded malwarebytes and did a scan with that which worked. It found a trojan virus linked to a oembis.exe file and removed it. I thought this would be the end of my problems, but it wasnt. So i then downloaded superantispyware to do a scan with that, but it, as with bitdefender, is not allowed to complete the scan.
At the BSOD there are many different error codes which come up each time. eg, STOP 0x0000000A or 0x00000002 or 0x8051192C and RQL NOT LESS OR EQUAL
I have tried a few other smaller things but nothing that is worth mentioning. I am still having this problem with the virus shutting down the system. It causes Firefox to crash regularly, when i am watching videos on VLC it crashes, bittorrent crashes, bitdefender antiuvrus does not work properly. Very annoying!
I hope somebody can offer me some good advice to save the computer!
I hope i have given enough info for now.
I look forward to hearing from someone soon.
