Please Help Me !!! operating system not found WINDOWS ME

PLEASE HELP- I have a HP pavilion XL848 with windows me- tried to run a few cleaning tools the other day, including defrag and scan disk...also ran a diagnostic on pcpitstop, removed some spy ware and quarantined some trojans.

The computer could not complete the scandisk function, saying the computer was restarted improperly. The computer has become progressively worse. cancelling scandisk would cause the computer to go to the dreaded blue screen.

At times when I rebooted the computer, windows would not load, and it would go black saying operating system not found- I was able to run scan disk through safemode but after a few hours it completed and went to bluescreen again- OE:0167:BFF82042 came up- which I can't find info on anywhere.

I have a feeling the hard drive is corrupt and I dont think I have a boot disk. Any Advice? I'm pulling my hair out.

The correlation between your trying to do some clean up and your machine failing does not make we want to think hardware first; it makes me want to think bad bug 1st.

I hope that you can do the following:

Download Spybot S&D, scan and have it fix everything in red.

Download Hijack This. On the site, there are instructions for copying and pasting a log.

Post the log here and we'll see if there is anything suspicious.
