Using an old Inspiron 6000/Windows XP/ not ready to put it out of my misery just yet.
Tried to start up the other day and wound up at a dead end.
The machine will boot up, but seconds later - Blue Screen with error message (subject line above).
I can start only in Safe Mode but can't access any Security Essentials diagnostics. I can use Safe Mode with Networking, but IE shuts down before I can get anywhere.
Not yet sure if this is hardware or malware.
Thanks for any help.
