XP Pro SP3 machine boots fine normally but can not get past the driver loads in safe mode. It just starts over. Seems to stop at the MUP.sys line. I've copied in a different MUP.sys file but it didn't help.

Original problem is something is starting up about 9 instances of Windows Explorer in full screen on multiple advertising sites and hanging the PC for a while. Also get memory location errors popping up at regular intervals. Memory test is good and the sticks are now 4 days new but still get the errors that don't hang anything but the messages just reoccur.  

Ran Malwarebites and deleted old user profiles, temp files and got Windows updates current. Didn't see any odd programs installed or notice any crazy processes but haven't sorted each little one out yet. Have antivirus on it but not detecting anything.
