Boot error - blue screen


B

Barryco

My PC has become unstable and won't boot.

It gets to the point of displaying the windows xp welcome screen with the
small window with the blue bars scrolling across and just before it gets to
the login screen a blue screen flashes very quickly (too fast to read the
text but you can quickly glimpse that there is error information displayed)
and then it reboots again.

It will boot into safe mode with networking and works fine in that mode.

I tried going to an earlier restire point and each attempt fails...it tries
to reboot but system restore then says the restore failed. I tried a number
of different restore points and each failed with the same error.

After running in safe mode for a while the PC has on a couple of occasions
spontaneously shut down with a messge saying the shutdown was initiated by NT
Authority/System because the DCOM Server Process Launcher service terminated
unexpectedly.

The PC is currently infected with the XP Antispyare 2009 malware and I was
just going through the process to get rid of it when this instability first
apppeared. I was in the middle of installing Malwarebytes when the system
shut down.

With all of that....anu suggestiosn would be appreciated.

Is there a way to capture the blue screen info in some sort of log so I can
see what is failing during reboot?

regards
Barry

Disable automatic restart on system failure. This should help by
allowing time to write down the STOP code properly. Right click on
the My Computer icon on the Desktop and select Properties, Advanced,
Start-Up and Recovery, System Failure and uncheck box before
Automatically Restart.

Do not re-enable automatic restart on system failure until you have
resolved the problem. Check for variants of the Stop Error message.

An alternative is to keep pressing the F8 key during Start-Up and select
option - Disable automatic restart on system failure.
