But the odd thing is, it was starting up fine, and then it started messing up without me having done anything to the computer in between the time of it working, and now that it's not.
I've described the problem more in depth on the other forum, which can be found here:
The person helping me with my malware problem suggested that I do an XP repair, but we do not have a boot disc.
I've searched for the 0x0000008E error code, and the Microsoft site says to download the Server Pack 2 to fix this error, but we can't get online to download that, obviously.
As I said in the other forum, the CWShredder keeps trying to remove an entry called "CWS.MSConfig" which will remove an entry from the System Configuration Utility Startup tab called:
dumprep 0-k %systemroot%\system32\dumprep 0-k
But everytime I restart, that entry reappears.
What are my options? Thank you in advance.
