i was posting my problems in the virus board, but since that's seemingly not the problem anymore, i thought i'd start one here and see if i can get more responses.
anyways, here's my problem. my computer will not reboot into normal mode or safe mode. all i get when i try is the BSOD (bloody bastard!) the error code is something like 0x000000000(there's alot of 0's)8E. i'm not quite sure if that is of much significance, or if it will help troubleshoot at all.
this happened apparently because when i ran an antivirus to get rid of a trojan it also got rid of something else vital to the functioning of my computer (that's what i've been told, i've got no clue personally)
i tried doing a repair install of windows a few days back when i was able to get on my computer in safe mode, but after i did that nothing happened with the exception of the BSOD appearing when rebooting into safe mode in consequence. i have no clue what the meaning of this is....
anybody have suggestions? it seems like i'm screwed, but it's worth a shot... also if i do have to wipe out my hard drive and reinstall everything, could somebody please give me some rough guidelines or a link as to how to do this?
