XP Pro - LSA Shell & mountmgr corrupt errors

I recently built a new PC based off an Intel 875PBZ board and a Pentium IV 3.2 Ghz processor.

I loaded Windows XP Pro and it all worked great.

The other night while playing CounterStrike on a game server, somebody started spamming text and my pc started acting funny right after.

It now pops up error messages everytime I run something and will sometimes shut down out of the blue.

The first error messages I got were showing LSA Shell error. Then I got some others I didn't capture (sorry).

After a day I got 'page_fault_in_nonpaged_area' error message.

This PC has two hard-drives, a 160 gb and an 80 from another system. When I reinstalled Windows, it partitioned both drives but assigned C & E & F partitions to the primary. It assigned D & G partitions to the 80 gb drive....

H & I are two DVD combo drives.

I went back into do a complete fresh install of Windows XP but got an error message stating that the 'file mountmgr is corrupt.'

PLEASE HELP.... What the heck should I do to start with a fresh install and kill any data on the two hard drives...?

The shell error is likely a result of a worm, the page fault in non pages error is probably also the work, improperly messing with your memory, and the third error is a corrupt registry, which probably resulted from the second issue.

I agree, this would be far easier to do a complete wipe.


Follow blackvipers windows install guide, which will walk you through wipping your drive and starting from scratch.

It won't allow a reinstall........1/2 thru the blue install screen the 'mountmgr' error pops up and it does a restart.

. . . back to square one...?
