    Hi, I am just wondering if anyone has ever had this problem and know how to fix it. Just recently bought a new computer with Vista on and it now fails to load up properly. It takes a long time to get to the screen with the user names on and then after clicking on an account says " windows must now restart because a plug and play service terminated unexpected"
    then says that something failed to initialise, 0X800106ba: a program stopped it. It then immediately shuts down, restarts and does it all again. It even does it in safe mode. I cant get it to stay on long enought to do any sort of scan or recover any log from anywhere. Before I beat it to death with a rolled up newspaper, is there any hope you can give? pleeeze? pretty pleeeze?

    Hi, No these are two separate machines. I fixed the trojan one (this one) by putting in a new hard drive. This other one was working well, But the one who must be obeyed (wife) has put on a game (MWO) which suggested turning off everything that protects it. She being not too bright cant tell me exactly what she has done exactly. So this is something that has happened since purchase and after a while of satisfactory use, if you can call windows satisfactory.

    Restart the computer and tap the F8 key to get the Advanced Boot Options
    menu. Select the option to not Automatically restart on failure. Now it
    might stop at the blue screen to show the error.

    Got up this morning and tried what u said. it failed to load up at all. I went back to safe mode menu and found another menu, "Repair", hit that and found the system restore button. I restored it to an earlier version and it seems to be working fine now. Windows defender had caught a Vundo trojan, so whether that had caused the problem I dont know. Thank you for your assistance
