recently bleeping computer forum helped me succeed in battle with a virus. Has left me with a puzzling problem, XP runs OK until I try to enter any safe mode - it then crashes and gives the following stop code
0x00000007b (0xf7c72528, 0xc0000034, followed by oxc00000's)
I have checked other forum posts but these seem to relate to PC's crashing in all modes.
Have run chkdsk and fixmbr and fixboot from an XP installation disk - only slightly unusual thing to report is it found 2 windows installations including minint - no idea what that is but think its something to do with a recovery partition.
Any help greatly appreciated as safe mode is useful in debugging the occasional glitches.
