This error is on a Lenovo laptop running Windows XP. Recntly upgraded to SP3 and AVG2012.
Had a problem with MS Exchange being slow and noticed the outbox had a days worth of mail. Send / Receive did not clear so I went to reboot. The system went into a blue screen with something like chkdsk running (1-3 updates) so I left the machine run unattended. It competed and now the machine is locked into a loop with the blue screen and the Windows Recovery console. I have tried every reboot method (safe...Last Known Good etc..) but it is still locked in the loop.
The message is ....a problem has been detected in windows to prevent damage it shutdown....if this is the first time try restart....or else follow these steps..."Disable or uninstall antivirus software, disk defragmentation or backup utilities. Check hard drive configuration and check for updated drivers. Run chkdsk / F to check for hard drive corruption"
The technical information on the "stop" is listed in the Topic Description above. I haven't been able to follow the instructions on the blue screen because I can't get out of the loop.
Lenovo has the ThinkVantage button that would allow a restore to factory settings but I want to leave this as a last resort.
I am getting the same message on my Dell Laptop. If any one can help it would be appericated
