At startup, I can log in to my desktop fine. However, after a few seconds, I get "critical kernel error" and "virtual memory is damaged by Explorer.exe." My comupter then unexpectedly will shut down. The next time I turn it on, a blue screen flashes (which I don't have enough time to fully read) about windows unable to start properly. To my knowledge, I have not recently installed any new programs or downloaded anything that might have caused this.
I also have a lot of unwanted startup applications that I can't seem to disable with msconfig. I'm not sure if the two are related.
Any help would be greatly greatly appreciated!
