PC in question is a new machine - AMD Athlon AM 4200+/Gigabyte MB/2GB RAM. The error message I have supplied also has this "The Session Manager Initialization system process terminated unexpectedly with a status of 0xc0000034. The system has been shutdown".
I have performed CHKDSK with 'unrecoverable errors found' also and cannot boot in safe mode.
Will I get away with a system restore or will I have to do a clean installation. I have run a test on the Seagate HDD and it is physically OK although has a corrupted filing system as expected.
I am using latest version Spybot anti-spyware - could this be an issue
