with all due respect to you...you're asleep...and you're in a nightmare a don't know it.....i'm s h a k i n g YOU. one of the worst things you can do is to NOT have a antivirus program running at all times. it rates right up there with *no fire wall and a *care-free attitude about opening any attachment. the BSOD trouble just might be tied to a embedded virus or corrupt driver / file that are desperatly needed. there is a place you can go to, to check that error code 0x0008E etc.....i'm not sure and i'm sure someone out there can guide you to it. a prime suggestion to your no antivirus is AVG it is completely FREE. http://www.grisoft.com if i have it right, just be sure to look for the free version you'll have to give your email addy and once you have recieved the notice from them, just use the link THAT THEY SUPPLY in the email.a word of advice, before you install any other antivirus program ''be sure to use the previous antivirus program's uninstaller to remove the program, if by chance it does not have one, go into the control panel and use the add / remove programs approach. actually I WOULD DISCONNECT FROM THE INTERNET while some computer cleaning is done. if you have a registry cleaner use it after removing the old av prog. definately update and use your malware prog's. ie: spybot,shredder or adaware just to name a few.and DEFRAG. REBOOT and then go after a good av prog.,oh delete the browser cache and history
I am having problems with BSOD and antivirus software. Every time I run a virus scan on my system, I get various BSOD messages: 0x000A, 0x0008E, 0x00050 and on and on. I originally had Symantec's Antivirus 2005, then went to the free version of Avast and I have even tried Stinger. Nothing will run.
In addition, I added a cooling fan to the system and that seems to help, as I previously had these issues before, due to the system heating up. I current have no virus protection on my system, and its running fine. I know this will not last forever. Any suggestions?
