Hi,

I downloaded something which turned out to be a virus (scaned the file with Norton before unzipping and it quarantined it). Next Time I start the computer it goes almost to the desktop and then the blue screen with:

BAD_POOL_CALLER
STOP: 0X000000C2, 0XCB0CF0000, 0X00000000, 0X00000000

I tried rebooting in safe mode but no luck- I would still get the error message. I booted to PC Recovery (which is built into the computer (too bad) and it gets to the point in Setup where it says Finished - Then the windows screen comes up and then a DOS program runs and it goes right back to the blue screen

The program runs so quickly I cannot read what it says - I did get this much it looks like a program called decon.exe.....

Noe when i restart it says Setup was not completed please run setup again - which i did only yo get the same results

I tried to use another XP CD from my desktop and inmstall anoter windows OS (which I have done successfully on the desktop) but it says that windows cannot detect any Hardrives on the sysytem....??? (Something to do with the drivers not loaded??)

Is there anyway to boot the computer with access to the data and try and remove the problem?

Thanks for the help

Did you plug in any new hardware, be it some gadget you plugged in, or something internal perhaps?

I had an ipod plugged in (I was transferring music) and I had my external hard drive plugged in also.

Try starting without those perhaps. My mother's computer would get stuck in a reboot. The culprit was a memory card adapter in the card reader.
