  1. Hi,

    Recently my computer has started to behave weirdly the first thing that happened was that the computer started to hang permanently and i had to switch it off using the reset button. then it started to give me blue screens with the following messages Stop:0x0000008E, C0x0000005, 0x8307B6F1, 0xAF40bb28, 0x00000000
    along with this what has happened is that my computer doesnt shutdown it hangs on logging off. after all this i ran a spyware scan and then checked for registry errors cleaned everything but no luck :(
    so i decided to reinstall windows as i entered the setup it gave me a message windows could not retrieve information about the disks on this computer i restarted virtual disk and nothing happened its the same also sometimes it gives me an error winsetup.dll is either corrupted or missing when im installing windows again.

    P.s: my computer is not installing any softwares also the installer hangs and doesnt progress.

    thank you...
