A desktop PC running Windows XP (SP3) started having this issue after i cleaned it up
(basic stuff: Uninstalled toolbars, Installed MSE, ran MBAM, CCleaner - nothing heavy).

It started throwing these stop codes: 0x0000007e, 0xc0000005, 0xf8a49160 0xf8a87864 0xf8a87560
...during boot.
And during all the safe mode boots.
Last Known Good Configuration did not work.

I am stumped, do any of you have any advice?

My current plan is to get a USB - IDE adapter, back up the data.
Then run chkdsk and sfc, etc. Then see if i can boot a hardware diagnostic suite.

I've done some googling and cannot find another situation of this nature.

Thanks for your time and consideration

Well...that doesn't really point in any direction...other than that you did something that would have been better not done.

System manufacturer and model?

Do you have any MS Genuine Windows disks?

If so...I'd suggest trying a repair install of Windows.

You said you installed MSE. Did you have an anti virus app installed prior to that? If so, did you uninstall it? If not, how long were you running without an av?

Download BlueScreenView:
unzip downloaded file and double click on BlueScreenView.exe to run the program.
when scanning is done, go to EDIT - Select All
Go to FILE - SAVE Selected Items, and save the report as BSOD.txt
Open BSOD.txt in Notepad, copy all of the content, and paste it into your next reply

Im checking out his computer tomorrow.

He had AVG before i uninstalled it with the AVG removal tool.

If i can save his files i may just try a reinstall of windows, but i will try the BSOD Tool (Thanks for the link).

BLuescreen view will not let me scan anything other than the host drive.

I used the 'Enable Boot Logging' option in XP, it did not make a log.
