Was attempting to resolve another issue per another Geekstogo thread (http://www.geekstogo...air-windows-xp/) which gave instructions on how to do a repair using XP Prof. CD and got the Stop error 0x0000007e (0xC000005, 0x00000000, 0xF789E0058, 0xF789DD058)

The blue screen noted the 1st reason for this error is not enough disc space (think I have 9GB of free space out of 19GB on my main drive) and I'm sure that was the reason I got the error and would have never tried this method had I know that the "repair" requires a lot of disc space. I'm now just hoping that I can get my desktop XP Prof. SP3 started again without losing all my data/programs.

Note: several years ago I had a major problem with this same desktop and the wonderful Geekstogo person spent many a day partitioning my desktop to get me up & running again. This is being entered using my wifes laptop so I can still get emails regarding possible fixes. Also I had just run Malwarebytes, SuperSpyware and Norton scans.
