Well...we've got to start somewhere on this, so let's throw some things into the mix and see what happens.

Download the attached file and save it to your desktop. Right click on the downloaded file and choose "Extract All"...extract it to your desktop.

Right click on the extracted file and choose "Merge"...accept the change and reboot.

Try to open an application that had failed to open earlier.

Attached File  xp_exe_fix.zip   745bytes   43 downloads

im sorry but i do not have the ''merge' option on my winrar program, but i went into the commnd prompt and entered the xp_fix_reg into the registry edit and i am still unable to open some exe files. i think that maybe it could be hijacked. Should i send a hijack this log?

my computer crashed three times in a row today i took note of each seperate BSOD:

1. STOP:0X0000000A (0x80EEB258, 0x000000002, 0x00000000, 0x806EB2D6)

2. STOP:0x0000000A (0x760C7D3B, 0x00000002, 0x00000000, 0x807E7EDB)

3. STOP:0x000000D1 (0x02B0F264, 0x00000002, 0x00000001, 0xF844EE9D)
pxfsf.sys- Address F844EE9D base at F843A000, Datestamp 4607c931

I touched the hard drive after turning off the computer and it felt quite hot, do you think that the problem could be that the system shuts down once it overheats? could the hard drive be over heating?

Do you have Prevx Home v1.0 installed on the machine?

Certainly, a HDD that's overheating can cause issues such as this. Working constantly to accomplish tasks that are difficult or even impossible can cause a HDD to get quite hot and it could quite possibly generate the hardware/driver related errors (0x0000000A), but the last error was caused by s system file commonly used by Prevx.

latest error message-
STOP:0x000008E (0x0000005,0x0000000,0xEF25CE84,0x00000000)
ever since i tried installing the Windows Service Pack 3 today which was unable to install, the computer crashes like every five minutes.
I also used TuneUp Utillities today to try to optimise the memory and i freed up a memory amount of 345MB and since then the computer seems to be running slower- why could that be?

If you receive the Stop 0x0A error after Windows XP is already installed, use the following troubleshooting methods to verify other components.
Examine third-party software or drivers
If you have installed any third-party software or drivers, try removing them or disabling them so that they do not load, and then restart the computer to see whether that software or driver is causing the error. If that software or driver is causing the error...uninstall it...
you can do this by clicking on start...run...type in msconfig...click on the startup tab...uncheck everything but your anti virus...
reboot...
you will have a little window pop up telling you have changed the way windows start...DUH..
put a check in the little box ..lower left side to not show this again or you will see it every time you boot...
now try youtube and see how it goes...
