    Well I'm stumped. I like to think I'm pretty good at dealing with computer problems - but this one has me beat.

    I built my computer about a month ago now. Starting about 2 weeks ago, I started to have a problem. I leave my computer on 24/7 and when I woke up in the morning, I had an error message on my screen (not a BSOD). It looks like the computer is restarting (perhaps windows update?) but it won't boot into windows because "ndis.sys" is corrupt.

    Now I can start windows in safe mode. I've also been able to use my windows disk to repair and it works fine for some time. But it's happened two more times and each time the only way to fix it is using the windows disk to repair.

    At the time the problem began, the only thing I had recently installed was a Windows Update. I've ruled out virus or spyware. There were no hardware changes.

    At this point, I'm stumped. I'm tempted to think it's something with the mobo. My setup:
    Vista 64-Bit Home Premium Edition
    MSI K9A2 CF-F Motherboard

    Guess you have tried googling for this error?

    There are squillions of hits on this one so maybe you can trawl through them and see if any help?
