I'm new to the group and I'm rubbish when it comes to technical problems with computers. I'm quite good at installing and using software, but other than that... oh dear.
I've recently installed a wireless networking device (LINKSYS WIRELESS-G networking adaptor) onto my PC, which has/possibly now had Windows XP installed, Panda AntVirus and other programs. After installing the adaptor I had an error message appear saying application error (referring to LINKSYS SYSTEM MONITOR). This message kept appearing until there were 52 messages on the screen and I had to re-boot the computer.
Since then, my computer crashes on start-up. On start up a blue screen appears and after checking file system on C: that type of file FAT32. It then starts to check disk consistancy. It verifies 100% then it says:
the \pagefile.sys entry contain a non valid link.
the size of the \pagefile.sys entry is not valid.
\WINDOWS\DUMP8695.tmp is crossed-linked on allocation unit 1006408.
It then locks on this screen, trying to load but nothing happens.
What have I done???? Has someone hacked our computer???
