    This morning while I was surfing my PC was attacked with multiple popups and a broswer jacking problem of some sort. It subsequently froze up so I tried to reboot.

    Well, now it freezes in the middle of rebooting...

    it gets to the point where my wall-paper is displayed and then shows a "msgsrv32 not responding" message and freezes up completely.

    I'm posting from an internet cafe because I have no idea how to proceed. I probably won't be able to check on this thread until tomorrow.

    Can anyone help?

    Is my PC a goner?

    :(

    Thanks for the advice, but my PC is really in trouble.

    I can't make it through start up in safe mode without a "fatal exception" screwing things up.

    I do have the rescue disk.

    Is there any hope?

    ps: since I'm still posting from internet cafes I can only check back sporadically.

    I would have loved to follow those instructions, however...I am not even getting to the point where I can get into control panel because my PC is not making it past the start up routine...ie I don't even get through a reboot before the msgsrv32 error kills my PC.

    This is true on a standard startup and when I try to start up in safemode.

    I'm starting to think that my PC is toast.
