Windows XP continually rebooting

  1. Hi . . . Please help I am at my wits end.

    I have an Intel Celeron 2.6 processor
    Operating system: windows XP home with service packs 1 and 2
    384MB DDR (PC1200)

    I recently installed a DVD Drive and no problems existed other than I did not have any sound to hear DVD Movies.

    So this weekend, I upgraded the windows media player and installed a better sound card and have been having this problem ever since.

    I have removed the sound card, but the computer still reboots which is weird in that I have unchecked the automatic restart box under the System Failure Box.

    The stop message I originally received was:

    STOP: 0x0000008E (0XC0000005,0x0067006E,0xEDCFACF0,0X00000000)
    After restarting it rebooted again and I received:
    STOP: 0x0000008E (0XC0000005,0X006B0073,0XEE85CCF0,0X00000000)

    at this point I removed the sound card and replaced the dVD drive with the old CD Burner, but it didn't help and I received this message:

    STOP: 0x0000008E (0XC0000005,0x0067006E,0XEE81ECF0,0X00000000)

    I wish I could get you a copy of the dumpfile, but the computer does not stay running long enough for me to copy.

    Any help?

    Can you run it in safe mode with networking? if so you can upload the minidumps so we can see what's going on

    Uninstall the upgraded Media Player and go back to the original.

    I'll try to get the minidumps using safe mode. I was able to use restore and the system seemed to work for a couple of hours and thought it was fixed, but it started again. I should've copied the minidumps, but I thought I was safe. I'll send them as soon as I can.

    Okay I was able to restore and copy minidumps before it started again. Any assistance that can be provided would be greatly appreciated.

    Looks like you have a Trojan - spoolsvv.sys. File info.
