Well that's no good, thanks for trying though.

I'm a grad student and the time is getting close to where I'll be needing to do lots of work on the computer, so I need to get it working soon. Most of anything that is important has been backed up previously, but what I worry most about with a System Restore is if that will truly get rid of whatever I've got.

Any advice?

If you have all your data backed up, I suggest you reinstall Windows: http://www.michaelst...nxpinstall.html

Okay, so I can't do that either. Since I attempted to use the XP Repair function and it was never able to finish the installation as part of the repair, it just takes me back to the installation screen and says it's working and just sits at "Setup will complete in approximately: 39 minutes" forever.

If I try to open up the recovery console, I get a blue death screen.

Okay, so I don't know how to use a command prompt at all and the internet is not helpful. I have no idea how to view a text file through a command prompt...

I tried "start .pnplog.txt" (and the same with all the other files) and it said it could not find the file every time. Am I not inputting the right command?

Press Enter.

When I tried that, I get this error for all four files:

16 bit MS-DOS Subsystem: C:\Windows\system32\cmd.exe – edit pnplog.txt
NTVDM has encountered a system error
NTVDM has encountered a system error c0h Choose ‘Close’ to terminate the application

Try "type", instead of "edit"

Heres what I found on the NTVDM error.

Author: Microsoft Corp.
Part Of: Windows

Description:
ntvdm.exe is process that belongs to the Windows 16-bit Virtual Machine. It
provides an environment for a 16-bit process to execute on a 32-bit
platform. This program is important for the stable and secure running of
your computer and should not be terminated

IT loads at boot whether you need it or not.

Event Viewer will likely have an errormessage somewhere in its list, telling
you in the error's properties what file it's looking for.


Other searches indicate the problem is do to virus/malware.

I would suggest Dban the drive and start fresh.
What do you think Broni?
