Ok tried to run recoveory console for error on boot up (corrupted isapnp.sys file). Now I have on boot up Options Windows XP or Windows XP set up. Go to sett up and I get this and it says inspecting computer and F6 and all that then black screen that says(The file isapnp.sys is corrupted. Press any key to continue.) I do that and get (Set up failed. Press any key to restart your computer). Same thing happens when I go to boot from Windows cd same answer. When I go into Win XP on start up I log on and when I try and type or open something it loggs me off and I have to log back on and then I play that fun game over and over. I can boot into safe mode and it doesn't kick me out....Any suggestions or help. Ran Malwarebytes in safe mode and found 64 infections and got rid of them.

OK first lets get you back into windows by following the steps located HERE at Microsoft support.

If this works then immediately:

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 the reguested logs in THAT forum. If you are unable to run any of the tools then start a new topic in the malware forum and put this in the subject line...I am unable to run any malware tools

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).

If you mean tring to just boot to the cd so I get the screen telling me what do I want to do? I can't even get to the blue screen asking the questions...All I get is isapnp.sys corrupted. I can access the cd in the rom if that helps. As soon as I try to type anything it goes to log on again but I can use the mouse.

It looks like RAM problem.

If you have more than one RAM module installed, try starting computer with one RAM stick at a time.
NOTE Keep in mind, the manual check listed above is always superior to the software check, listed below.
If you have only one RAM stick installed...

Yes, but you have to make your computer bootable to something, first.

Do you mean, you switched slots, or you started computer with one stick at a time?

One at a time. Also is there a way to get the Option to boot to Win Xp or Win Xp start up off so it just boots to XP. Just s thought that might be an issue because when I say boot to cd it flashes that screen the says starting windows setup then error with sys. file.
