A few days ago, my father used this computer for reasons I see no exact reasoning to allow. Since then, this computer has been unable to run outside of Safe Mode. Upon reaching the Windows XP Logo, it would instantly restart. I have disabled Automatic Restarting and receive a blue screen mentioning this STOP error: Code: ***STOP: 0x0000007E (0xC0000005, 0xF782E9B9, 0xF8BF5538, 0xF8BF5234) I do not know what he did, nor would he know or remember anyway. It is my believe this is caused by a viral infection of the computer due to his arrogance of safe internet usage procedures, but individual scans of the HDDs prove nearly useless. I have found posts of similar errors requiring checks and such I am unacquainted with, but I am hoping help could be provided. This computer is an eMachines T2958, purchased around 5 years ago. I have lost track of what more information you'll need, besides exact specs (which I'll need to find, then). So inquire where needed. I am only hoping that restores or formats are not required. I had a minor bad experience a few years back where my sister did a system restore without my consent and I had lost a large majority of code I had written for a game. Edit: I've added the computer specs I obtained from PC Wizard 2008 in 2007 to my profile. The only change since then is finally moving to Windows XP Service Pack 3 after finding the erroneous registry by one of my programs preventing the upgrade. The hardware is the same. Not everything is there, but it's not exactly detectable... At least back then. I tried running PC Wizard 2010, and then 2008, but Safe Mode is preventing it anyway.
