STOP 0x7e error after major spyware infestation
Posted on 2008-11-05
I have a computer that was constantly rebooting. I booted to UBCD4WIN and found a ton of malware on the system. I cleaned it using various tools on the CD and I'm certain it's now clear. It's still rebooting.
I did a repair install from the XP Home CD and it installs fine until it gets to the last reboot and it reboots again.
I told you all of that to tell you this.. :)
I disabled autoreboot and get the BSOD with this error:
STOP: 0x0000007E (0xC0000006, 0x806846EA, 0xF7A2B6E8, 0xF7A2B334)
I've searched all over for information about that error and all I can find are references to situations that are not relevant to my issue. Most of them have "0xC0000005" as the first parameter.
Can someone point me in the right direction to find out where to begin?
Oh.. one other thing.. memory tests ok with MemTest86.
