HELP!!! I haven't been connected to the internet for three months and when i eventually did the other day, windows started to automatically install some updates. It then asked me to restart my computer, which i faithfully did. But to my shock and horror, my computer would not start and i was faced with the Blue screen STOP message. I have restarted my computer and tried to run it in safe mode in several different ways all to no avail, it just goes straight to blue screen. Is there anything that i can do or have i lost everything and need to fork out for a new computer???
I am running windows xp and its a dell about five years old. I haven't recently installed any new hardware except for a wireless dongle so i can pick up the internet signal, which was working fine for three days before this all happened. Any help would be GREATLY appreciated!!!
