Hello everyone and thanks in advance to anyone that can help me out. I'd really appreciate it.

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)

When booting from the CD, you should get a message "Press any key to boot from CD". Was the message there?

this is the same topic i had googled . Looks like it didnt solve the problem. It seems like something wrong with the hardware. usually could be over-heating or actually damaged.
Safe way to me is fresh installation of windows if u have a copy of windows or recovery CD. If blue screen comes back , it is definitely hardware has problems. you have to carefully look for it.

Thanks for the replies.

I got to the boot from CD option but after reading the guide on this forum, I found I didn't have the same steps as the guide did. After my dad got home he showed me how to get to the Command Prompt, which worked, and he ran Chkdsk like the error recommended. Somehow that let my computer get past the bluescreen.

But a problem persists. Whatever is infecting my computer won't go away. I've ran both AVG and Spyware Terminator. AVG only came up with one issue, Adware Generic3.AGKU which isn't getting much in the way of Google results. It was located in an MJcore file in my Programs folder. I didn't download MJcore (not willingly). I've read MJcore.dll is a form of malware and it might relate to browser helper objects. After locking that thing away and rebooting I still get a "Webpage is unavailable while offline" I.E. popup box. It is sitting at the corner of my screen at the moment. I know if I click on "Connect" or "Stay Offline" it will open a mouse trap of tabs in IE. I use Firefox... My scans are coming up clean, but this pop up is telling me another story.

Is there a way I can get rid of this thing?

Thanks

I suggest you go to the Malware Forum and run all the steps located in the START HERE. These self-help tools will help you clean up 70% of problems on your own. If you are still having problems after doing the steps, then please post a HiJackThis Log in THAT forum. If you are unable to run and/or post a HJT log, then post that in your initial post in the topic you create in that forum.

If you are still having problems after being given a clean bill of health from the malware expert, then please return to THIS thread and we will pursue other options to help you solve your current problem(s).
