I have run into a bit of a snag trying to revive my computer that keeps getting a BSOD ~20 seconds after windows startup. I am running XP SP3 "STOP: 0X0000008E 0Xc0000005 0xA12AFB75 0x9F0F47E8 0x00000000" Here is what happened: I was browsing the internet lastnight when my start bar and start menu changed from XP default to the 'classic windows' style. I restarted my computer and a few seconds after windows put me at my desktop I got the BSOD as described above. I booted up in Safemode then I attempted to open "Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware" however it would not open. I then opened 'SUPERAntiSpyware' using its alternate start (normal start would not open either) and scanned my computer. It came up with: Trojan.Dropper/SVCHost-Fake Rootkit.TDSServ (with 57 entrys for the rootkit) I removed them all (+ some tracking cookies) and then restarted. booting back into safemode and was then able to open Malwarebytes Anti-Malware which came up with the following: 1 infected registry key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\tdss (trojan.Agent) 2 infected registry data items: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\Currentversion\Winlogo\userinit (Trojan.Agent) Data: C:\windows\system32\ HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\Currentversion\Winlogo\userinit (Trojan.Agent) Data: system32\ 1 infected file: C:\windows\system32 (Trojan.Agent) all of which were 'Quarantined and deleted successfully' I then rebooted and ran windows and got the same BSOD. after some reading online I was told to use the minidump feature of XP to find what was left (I was told most likely a rootkit that I can't find). I was however unable to open the .dmp files. I searched and found I had to download a viewer (Horrible idea Microsoft) which I am unable to do due to the computer BSODing when im not in safe mode. I am not sure what to do from here, can anybody help?
