I made the fatal error of rebooting the system since a Windows update came through. Now I am getting the BSOD with stop error 0x0000C1f5. Is there anyway to fix this?

No it's my desktop, and had a virus, but now it's the BSOD and I really can't lose the info on it. I tried to reboot it after a windows update and it got stuck on a certain registry addition.

Is this the only thing I can do, because since I just bought this I do not have a disk. Thank you for you help anyway.

What is the make and model of the desktop?
It is possible there is a recovery partition hidden on the hd but each brand name has a different way to get to it.

Do you have a Vista installation disk?
Is there data you need to save?

Then you can do a full recovery with hopefully the recovery partition on the hd by doing the following.
Hard Disk Recovery
should be enabled by default. If it is not, you may need to go into your system’s BIOS by hitting F2 at boot and enable it under the Advanced tab.

Once Hard Disk Recovery is enabled, restart the system and hit ALT+F10. This will begin the system recovery process. You will be prompted to type six zeros as a security step. Type 000000 to proceed.

F2 is not working to enter BIOS. DEL enters setup and F12 as well. F8 enters list for safe mode.
