  1. Hey,
    Well guys recently one of my pc got infected with some virus. And then it stopped booting at all. When ever I tried to start the windows it would take me to blue screen and windows will never load.
    I decided to boot it from my xp cd so I could format it but after loading setup files it gives me three options ( I rem this)
    1. To setup windows xp press enter
    2. To repair windows xp using cd press r
    3. To cancel press esc

    No matter what option I choose it takes me to the blue screen saying,
    Turn off anti virus or anything.
    STOP : 0x00000024

    Im just stuck.......... I need help badly.

    Here is a Google page full of this stop error. I narrowed it down by adding 'on boot' to the search. Since there is no system information to define anything except Windows XP, you're going to have to find the one that corresponds to your system:
