  1. Hi all, I have an Emachines PC running windows XP, and it quick working on me the other day. What happened was that when I turned it on, it just went black after loading the intel screen. So I booted it and pressed F8, attempted to get the machine to load in safe mode, and when it does, it begins loading system files and always gets stuck on the Ksecdd.sys file. Here is the complete line of coding it stops on:

    multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\windows\system32\drivers\ksecDD.sys

    If whoever happens to read this didn't need that, sorry, I'm not very tech savy and have no idea what to do here. If anyone could tell me how to remove this file or anything I can do to get my computer working again, I would be very appreciative. Thanks!
