today, after an ad-aware scan. it detected cookies and neligible objects. i removed everything, both cookies and neligible objects (i normally do that).
however after the scan finished, items started to exit and i received an error. the error that appeared had something to do with win32k.sys and within minutes, i received a blue screen of death. i tried rebooting and i got to my desktop. but within a minute or two, i would receive the same blue screen.
the blue screen was the STOP 0x50/ PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA. i have googled around and i've seen many with my problem but they were all a little bit different. through the research, the problem has to do with hardware/driver malfunctions. but the last time i have inserted new hardware into my computer was ram and that was about three years ago.
the only thing i suspect that caused this problem is probably the adaware scan when i removed the neligible objects? but im still unsure. please help!
i run a Windows XP Home SP2
Dell Dimension 2400
kingston 1 gb ram
edit: i have tried the option of pressing f8 and enabled the Last Known Configuration option. i still recieved the bsod, but it was a different stop message. its
STOP: 0x0000008E (0xC0000005, 0x804D9DA8, 0xEEF673F8, 0x00000000)
