Yesterday my AVG antivirus free edition program told me it found a virus. At that moment I was viewing a website and hadn't downloaded anything. I run Spyware Terminator after AVG says it can't find anything in its full computer scan. Terminator comes up with a few issues, which I didn't think to write down, and it couldn't delete a couple of them. I rebooted, re-ran Terminator, and also found the viruses with AVG. Meanwhile, anytime I go to use FireFox or IE to look up the viruses a pcfix ad pops up or a pop up box telling me if my computer is infected there is an easy FREE fix. In the middle of my scan my computer freezes. I manual reboot and.... Blue Screen of Death.
"Problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer." It instructed me to reboot and then run CHKDSK is I got the error again, disable antivirus programs, and update drivers. Well, it gave me the error message again. So I reboot again, but try to go into safe mode. I use Windows XP Media Edition (I think SP2 or something of the like). It WILL NOT let me reboot in Safe Mode, Normal Mode, or Last Good Condition/Setting Mode. No matter how I reboot, it always goes back to the demonic Blue Screen. I looked up the problem and tried inserting my Windows XP installation disc to use recovery. I got to the blue screen, inserted it, the computer thought about it, did nothing. I rebooted with the disc in the drive and it went to the same bluescreen (even after selecting Safe Mode) and did nothing.
So... I get no beeps when I reboot, I use Windows XP, I'm haven't upgraded any video/sound/graphics cards, haven't put in a new hard drive. I got my computer in or around 2005. My STOP error is 0x00000024 (0x000190203, 0x841FBCA00x, 0x00000000) Could someone please help me solve this issue? (I'm using my dad's computer, and I cannot get mine past startup)
