Hi...

I wanted to ask something..

the case is like this:-

- My friend's computer being infected by viruses, which caused his I.E corrupted and also corrupted some windows file system, which caused the system becomes unstable, and always hang.

- So we decided to reinstall ther OS using the repair function, because he doesn't want to reformat his windows, and since he still got his data inside

- But after the repair procedure was completed, we're unable to login into the windows, the loading bar doesn't even showing up. But when pressing the F8 button, and using the "Disable restart upon error"[uh, something like that]..it will shows the BSOD with the error code:

STOP: 0x0000007B(0xFA330528, 0XC0000034, 0X00000000, 0X00000000)

Can any sifu help me? Thanks

*Please don't ask to reformat the computer since my friend still have his documents inside the computer, as well as some software settings..
*I can't even enter via SAFE MODE T_T

Thanks in advance.

Probably the hard-disk's boot sector has been infected by a virus. Only way to correct that is delete the partition, create new partition where the deleted one used to be, then install Windows on the new partition. You can do all those things by running setup again on the XP CD.

Sorry it will destroy your data but you should keep backups.

Or if the data is very important, buy a new hard disk. Install Windows on that. Fit old disk as a slave, scan it with up-to-data antivirus and delete any it finds before getting data off it.

Boot the computer using a boot CD and copy the important data off before re-formatting. Use one of the following:

Ultimate Boot CD
Emergency Boot CD
Puppy Linux

Well, you could try using fixboot.

Microsoft Windows XP - Fixboot

You could try a repair install.

Do you have access to a different disk? It may be that the one you used is corrupted, which caused the problem in the first place. Is it a slipstreamed disk?

Try a command line scanner from F-Prot, McAfee, or TrendMicro and boot from a BartPE disk to run them.

No problem - that's why we're here. I'm very determined when it comes to rooting out a problem and will dog it until I fix it - but I understand that others aren't this way, so it's their decision when to stop fussing, bite the bullet and do a format and reinstall.
