I have a big problem with my computer now... Let me start off by saying that I have windows xp home edition ..

Ok so.. I scanned my computer and found a virus but the scanner wouldn't heal it.. So I deleted it.. Then explorer.exe stuffed up.. Then I booted my comp with my windows xp cd and tried to repair the whole windows.. But then after repairing it every time I tried to go into windows a message came up saying:

"A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer.

If this is the first time you've seen this stop error screen, restart your computer. If this screen appears again, follow these steps:

Check for viruses on your computer. Remove any newly installed hard drives or hard drive controllers. Check your hard drive to make sure it is properly configured and terminated. Run CHKDSK /F to check for hard drive corruption, and then restart your computer.

Technical information:

***STOP: 0x0000007B (0xFA2C3640, 0xC0000034, 0x00000000, 0x00000000)"

... So I booted my computer again with the cd and installed another windows xp OS... "C:\WINDOWS2".. And that's how I am on now.. Oh and I can still access my original files on my drive but I can't open most of them.. like word documents and real one player movies.. But I know I have microsoft word and real one.. Also the sound doesn't work and the monitor is kinda weird..

I've been to the malware section and have deleted all viruses/spyware :tazz:

That doesn't help me much because I can't even log into my 1st windows xp.. Should I reformat my computer? Then re-install windows xp home edition?

I was speaking of installing the programs and drivers on the 2nd installation. But if you don't care about losing all your information, I would say go ahead, reformat, and re-install windows.

Sorry to say, but I am stumped right now, I am really tired.

No creative juices flowing atm. If no one has assisted you by when I come back tommorrow I will take another stab at it.

Although there is always the last resort of doing a total re-format and install.

But that is your choice.

Thanks for helping me, is it safe to do a reformat? Can I see a guide on how to format?
