Well, short version of what is wrong: Whenever I try to load safe made, it'll run down the .sys's and stop on mup.sys, then go no further. I'm using WinXP.

Long story: I been plagued by a few tough to kill trojans and the like when, all of a sudden, during the repairing instructions suggested by another board in this forum, the computer started to develope massive processing lag (ontop of the usual glitches that is probably hardware related). Eventually, about the third safe mode in the instructions, the mup.sys pause occured. I have the WinXP CD and would rather avoid a reformat, but will if it's possible to save personal files (by making backups).

Computer is a handful of years old and was windows 98 until upgraded to XP.

Any help appreciated,

I would suggest getting on a computer that has a printer and do a Google Search for MUP>SYS. There are a lot of finds take a look and see if you can find a solution you will be able to follow. From what I gather it is just copying a new uncorrupt file over the old one, but getting to do it is the task and I honestly do not know if I could explain it easily to you.

The reason for the printer is to print out the solutions that you think will help.

Have a good day.

Update InCD from the Nero website. It depends on which version of Nero you have. InCD is a packet-writing software that makes it possible to drag and drop files into a burnable folder. It's quite handy to have if you do such things, but one of their versions was particularly prone to making it impossible to enter Safe Mode. It usually stops at mup.sys.

Try update package 3 here.

Both are very good suggestions on what to do. In regards to the second option, does that problem with nero come up instantly or can it take time? I've had nero on the machine for quite a while before this problem came up. I'll update, like you suggested (tomorrow), just thought I would ask before hand.

I'm not sure. On my machine, it was soon after I built it that I couldn't get into Safe Mode. The fix was instantaneous, and updating can't hurt.
