Running Windows Vista on an HP Media Center PC.
I had previously posted here, since the computers in network were misbehaving. http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic459525.html
I tried to run DDS, and no log was generated. All it kept saying was "The system cannot find the file specified."
Then I downloaded gmer from this site. When i tried to extract files, This message was displayed: "Cannot complete the compressed folders extraction wizard. The compressed folder is empty."
i then downloaded gmer from the second download link. Entries started listing like crazy, beginning with "SSDT" then I got a blue screen before gmer finished.
Message on blue screen read: "Windows has been directed to shut down. Page fault in nonpaged area."
then i booted into safe mode with networking. Got a message saying Windows Security Center is turned off. when I tried to turn it on, message read "security center service can't be started."
Then a recovery screen popped up: Windows has recovered from an unexpcted shutdown.
Problem Event Name: Blue Screen
Os version: 6.0.6002.2.2.0.768.3
Locale id: 1033
When i typed on the keyboard, every keystroke appeared in double, e.g. Ggmmeerr, for gmer.
I tried running gmer again and got a blue screen again. This time, it read "PFN_LIST_CORRUPT"
