A friend of my wife's dropped of a dell inspiron E1505 which has BSOD stop code Stop 0x0000000A, I followed the instructions listed on the microsoft web site (use f8, then last known config), the machine reboots and works fine for a while then crashes back to the bsod.

The machine has avast antivirus on it and I get notified of a Rootkit error, just before the machine crashes.

I've run malwarebytes to clean the machine as well as a full scan with avast, after cleaning the rootkit error comes back and the machine crashes againg

I suspect that you have some malware on your computer causing issues that we are not able to solve through means we can use here in the Tech Forums. I suggest you read the 'Start Here' topic found here. With these self-help tools you have a high chance of fixing the problems on your own. If you are still having problems after following Step 3 of the guide, continue with Step 4 and 5 and post in the Malware Forum. If you are unable to run any programs, Please create a topic stating what you have tried so far and that you are unable to run any programs. Also, Please do NOT post the logs in this thread.

If you are still having issues after the malware expert gives you a clean bill of health, Please return to THIS thread and we will pursue other options to help you solve your current problem(s).
