    Hi everyone, just today I found out (through popups and processes running etc) that my PC had been infected with malware. I ran Ad-Aware, but first I ran hijackthis and tried to fix the problem in that way. Hijackthis wasn't able to remove everything clearly as i recall.. so I ran Ad-aware. It removed about 10 different malware programs but one did not remove completely.. it stated "Could not remove (malware), will attempt to remove at next startup." so, I figured it would.. the Malware started with an "M" name but i don't remember which..

    Anyways, i restarted and now I'm getting a BSOD right after the Windows Xp splash screen. BSOD code c000021a.

    I really need help with this, every time it does the same thing and just keeps on restarting. I have tried running in safe mode, repairing with XP disk, all the likes. I can use my mouse and keyboard just fine and I could really, really use any help with this. The recovery console I think may help fix it.. it's one of the only things I can possibly access windows with. Please respond if you can.

    Thanks very, very much.
