For some reason I can't get into windows normally and I always end up at the blue screen saying
Irql not less or equal.
The technical information is.
Stop: 0x0000000A (0X6E783FE1, 0X00000002, 0X00000000, 0X804DBE7B)
Before this started happening I'd left my account on switch users with several programmes running. I returned later to find the screen had frozen so I restarted manually. The computer then started in Check disk mode but when it got to scanning free space (I think it was called that) it wouldn't go past 24%. I tried this several times. Eventually I gave up and just bypassed check disk when it asked to be performed. The computer was working more or less okay but then after I restarted I started having having the problem I've described.
Now I can only get into windows (XP) in safe mode. I haven't installed any new hardware or software in the last week.
However I did a CHKDSK in safe mode and in a file called FOUND.000 there were lots of files linked to Norton anti-virus which I installed about 2 months ago.The rest were temporary internet files.
