Last night when I was online, I was online and the site I was on was so slow that I couldn't even close out of it (nothing to do with viruses or malware - nothing popped up on my AV and the site is known for being slow), so I ended up having to do a "hard" shut down (turning the power off). So then when I go to start the computer up the next time, I am now getting the blue screen of death a few seconds after the Gateway logo shows up.
On the blue screen, it says:
A problem has been detected and Windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer. If this is he first time you've seen this Stop eror screeen, restart your computer. If this screen apears again, follow these steps.
Disable or uninstall any anti-virus, disk defragmenation, or back up utilities...(and so on).
Stop: 0x00000024 (0x00190203, 0x861B2008, 0xC0000102, 0x00000000)
Well, I've tried restarting my computer, but it keeps going back to that screen, so I can't follow their steps. I've tried starting in Safe Mode, but that takes me right back to the blue screen as well.
Does anyone know how I can get past this screen? Thanks for any help in advance!
