Xp was starting to reboot and beaving oddly - hence my earlier thread. However now it won't even boot!

After the initial booting, and the black XP loading screen I get the BSOD:

PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA


Technical details:

*** STOP: 0x00000050 (0xCCBC0000, 0x00000000, 0x804D9DA8, 0x00000000)

you need to run chkdsk /r until it does not fix any errors...try rebooting in between runs...if it fails to boot normally try safe mode as soon as you power up.... As your computer restarts but before Windows launches, tap the F8 key about once per second
If you do not have a windows xp disk, download the following file: rc.iso....from here..then run chkdsk /r
from the rc.iso cd...be sure the bios is set to boot from the cd drive first...

go here and get burncdcc ..a small FAST no frills iso burning program...

NOTE...do not put a blank cd in until burncdcc opens the tray for you
1. Start BurnCDCC by clicking on BurnCDCC.exe
2. Browse to the ISO file you want to burn on cd/dvd ....in this case its rc.iso
3. Select the ISO file
4. click on Start

make sure in the bios the cd drive is the first boot device....put the cd in the cd drive..boot your computer....when you get to the screen that gives you the option to install or repair ...select r...then when you get to the prompt...type in chkdsk /r..press enter

NOTE THE SINGLE SPACE BEFORE THE /
While chkdsk is running you will see a light blue window with a dark blue band at the top and bottom. or a black dos box depending on on which cd you use... a Chkdsk will display the specific stage it is checking as well as the percentage of completion of the stage....
there are 5 stages...it may appear to hang at a certain % for a hour or more...it even will sometimes go back over a area...this is normal...
DO NOT SHUT DOWN THE COMPUTER OR YOU CAN HAVE SERIOUS PROBLEMS...it can take a long time depending on how large the drive is...
When chkdsk is finished, it will automatically reboot your computer....

I have run chkdsk 5 times now - It still won't start Windows.

First time it said: Chkdsk found and repaired one or more errors on the unit (translated). Tried to boot but it kept crashng. Then I ran chkdsk 3 times in a row - Now it didn't say anything about no errors, just saying it had finished controlling. Then a boot with the cd in again and the 5th and last try - still no errors. Still won't start!?

Running in safe mode doesn't work either - I don't get the BSOD however - when it's initializing ...system32\drivers\mup.sys it goes black, then reboots.

Okay - I'll look into the guide you're referring to.

I was beginning to think this was the only step now... Fortunately I was able to use Linux to extract the stuff I hadn't made backups of.

Any suggestions to what or who the culprit might be?

I think the malware or the removal of the malware hosed some system files...

Yeah it could very well be. Don't know if you've read my earlier post about my XP crashing and then acting odd? - http://www.geekstogo...or-t262465.html

At first I suspected an overheated processor because of the random rebooting - but after a couple of times I was missing icons, links and files in start menu, desktop etc. And coudn't run IE, Antivirus and so. That's when it seemed more and more like malware or so.

Shortly before this I added Malwarebytes and Spyhunter to my arsenal...

I went with a repair of Windows following every step as in the guide and the on-screen directions.

Since I had secured whatever files and docs it was okay to have a "new" Windows - One I could streamline and protect better than the former...

However all my programs have stayed on! - My Documents folder are sweeped, so is the Start Menu. On top of this my "Install or Remove Programs" thingy is completely empty.

Would a new repair really sweep it?

that is called a clean install...see the pdf attached for instructions on how to do it..

in the first paragraph of the repair guide it says your programs would still be there...
if by sweeped you mean gone...
no it doesn't do that... unless you had moved your data to another partition or drive or have saved it in some strange way or place

Sorry for my late reply - Holiday season meant I haven't been around working on the computer.

Oh... Yeah well I mixed up the Repair and Format, or clean install, thing. Anyways, after my repair - The programs was still on the C:drive, but my start menu and "add/remove programs" was both completely empty?

That wouldn't work, so I went with the Format. That caused some problems as well, a couple of crashes, one of them with a BSOD stating hardware trouble (I think), so I thought it was going down the drain, but I kept trying and finally it went all the way. It seems healthy now.

Anyway, Thank you for your help, I've certainly learned some about a couple of processes...
