    I got a blue screen when booting up and it listed spooldr.sys as the problem. I used several antivirus type programs to try to clean out the computer but none of them worked. I can get to safe mode, but without interent.

    I then copied the tcpip.sys file from i386 to windows/system32/drivers and I got the blue screen again but without the message about spooldr.sys.

    I then copied the tcpip file from my laptop, from the windows directory, and then computer boots up but at the desktop it is acting weird. The desktop icons dont show up and control-alt-delete is disabled by the administrator. Also everything takes a really long time, like loading menus, didnt try opening any programs though.

    Is there another tcpip file that I should use or does anyone have any info on this somewhat perplexing problem. Some of the AV programs removed certain things. Also I tried running sfc /scannow from safe mode and nothing happens.
