And thank you for taking the time to read this message. a couple days ago I was using my Windows XP laptop to watch entourage online at suddelny my AVG Tray closed by itself and i got unexcpected pop-ups as well as 3 new shortcuts on my desktop that where something like "yourporn.com". I immediatley thought that I have a virus so I googled the symptoms and came across a forum that said that what i had was spyware and to get rid of it i would need spyware removal software. Obeying the command i ran spyware software at full scan and it displayed a report of 100+ spywares I clicked to delete them but then I got a dialog that said that a few of them could'nt be deleted. Not thinking much about it I continued using my laptop the same until yesterday I came home from lunch and noticed that my laptop was shut down. When I tried opening it it gave me the "your computer was unexcpectedley shut down" so i chose to start it normally and thats when I got the "STOP: C0000221 Unknown Hard Error" and below it it also stated "Unknown Hard Error". Then I tried restarting it and it still came up with the same BSOD and when i tried starting it in safe mode it gave me the "A problem has been detected and windows has..." and below it it stated "*** STOP: 0x0000008E (0xC0000005,0x81A80286,0xFAF7E828,0X00000000)". I don't have the setup disks for Windows XP so I tried Avira Rescue CD first time a ran it at full scan it scanned the entire computer and came up with 950+ records but no warnings or infections. So I decided to try to update it. When I tried to update it within seconds it said update successful but there was nothing written in the dialog box. So i tried to scan and within seconds of starting it it said scan successful but next to the items scanned it remained at 0, so i did a hard reboot and next i started the rescue CD again. This time however when I started it, it showed me a dialog that said that the scanner was not found so that i couldn't scan my laptop. I tried making another Avira rescue cd but the same problem occurs. I now can't use windows or the recovery disk.
Please help me
