Wow, where do I begin?\
Lenovo T61 Thinkpad,
Windows XP SP2 fully patched
Trend Micro AV, fully updated.

Yesterday I began having issues after I removed RVI 8.0 from my computer (for displaying images in our AS400 system).  After uninstallation I rebooted and the computer began hanging up at the "Running Startup Scripts" - then it would blue screen and reboot.  It would do that over and over unless I unplugged the ethernet cable before the "running startup scripts" displayed on the screen.

Also yesterday I installed Kyocera TWAIN driver on another T61 laptop here and rebooted, it did the same thing (hung up on the "scripts" part of the boot process).  I find it interesting because the TWAIN driver is used by RVI to "hook" into our scanner and pick up the scans to send to the AS400.

This morning I switched my laptop to compatability mode and did a full Windows repair (not reinstall) and then re-downloaded all the updates.  After switching back to the original SATA mode my computer blue screened almost immediately after the initial Windows XP splash screen came up.  I had to reboot about 10 times to read the following error codes:

0x0000007B (0xF793C526, 0xC0000034, 0x0000000, 0x00000000)

I do not want to rebuild this from scratch, is there any ideas what I can look for?

It works fine on compatability mode, but I'm not sure what I'm losing in performance by being in this mode.
