  1. Hi everyone,

    I use windows xp home ed.

    I've been getting Bsod as soon as the windows wallpaper and applications load up, and I keep getting this message.

    Stop: 0x0000008E(0xC0000005,0xF9cc228B,0xF9EC1C28,0x00000000)

    vistaj.sys - Address F9cc228B base at F9cc2000,Datestamp 448959a3

    I have done some search on to what vistaj.sys is, and i think its part of some virus am'I right or wrong?

    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    The vistaj.sys file is a virus/rootkit infection. See HERE for more info.

    Go HERE and follow the instructions exactly.

    Post fresh HJT and Ewido logs as attachments into this thread, only after doing the above.

    I have to warn you, that getting rid of this might not be easy. You may end up having to reformat and reinstall from scratch.

    Regards Howard :wave: :wave:
