Hello to all,
This is my first post, so be leniant with me if I am forgetting something. :)

I am having a few errors on start up with my machine. The first is the seemingly common "No Page File Found" error on start up. I have read some threads on this and tried to fix it through "System Properties" as well as manually with RegEdit. Unfortunately the advice other have been given has not worked for me. I tried renaming the pagefiles in regedit and setting them to clear on shut down. This also did not work. I have two hard drives and neither has a pagefile in the root directory, so nothing to delete there. Also, I should make it clear that for some reason windows was installed the D: drive. (this is my dad's computer so I am not sure exactly what he has done to it so there is no chain of events for me to follow..)

My second error is 16 Bit MS-DOS Subsystem error. It does not specify a file in which the illegal operation is occuring, just an address. It just says Rundll as the MS-DOS window is labeled Rundll. I have run SFC, although it was weird in that every few minutes it would ask me to insert my WindowsXP Home Edition disk into the drive (it already was), and I hit retry and it would continue on for a while and pop up again. The process did finish, however.

I am running Norton 360 as well as PConPoint and Pest Patrol. Anti virus has found nothing as of yet, although I am running Stinger as we speak and then will run CW shredder as well when that is complete. My HijackThis log follows:

Thank you for your time,
Randy

The above often indicates an infection.

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).

Thanks for your help. I went ahead and pulled one hard drive, installed fresh XP on a third, and transfered all my files and settings to the new installation drive. Everything is good now. (: The problems were slowing the machine so much I didn't even want to try and fix it any more. Thanks.
