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 been cleaned of all infections. :tazz:

i can only assume as you have not provided me with all the steps you took.

so what you are saying is that you have installed the os on another hard drive?

you should use this opertunity to back up all personal data, and delete/format the primary hd that will have the os and reinstall it

ok, now i understand why the problem,

you will need to format the HD so that you can do a clean reinstall of windows but make sure the personal files are backed up first
