Need some advice on how to fix BSOD after running malwarebytes. My kids somehow acquired a virus on my desktop pc. "privacy protection" was one, along with a browser hijacker of some sort. I started my pc up in safe mode downloaded the latest version of malwarebytes and ran the full scan, after running the full scan I selected to remove everything it found. Then rebooted my pc. After I rebooted my pc I found that the drivers for several my of programs, and for my cd/dvd burner had been deleted as well as system recovery. The computer runs in windows for about 5 minutes and then there pops up the BSOD that states windows has occurred an error. STOP: 0x0000008E. I tried rebooting to last known functioning start up with no luck. I purchased a program called System Boost Elite, which I ran and it really didn't seem to make any change.
OS: XP on Dell Desktop
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
