    Hopefully I can detail this out as much as possible.

    Recently, my virus scanner told me that win32k.sys had a virus, and it cleaned it out. Now, my computer shuts down randomly, and whenI boot up, I get the BSOD sayong there's an error with win32k.sys. This only happens when I boot up normally, but in safe mode I run fine. Is there a way to run a diagnostic on the file or such? I might be able to retreive the exact error codes if needed.

    It would help if you had the error number, probably 0x0000008E.

    Have you tried replacing the driver from the XP CD? Do you have an XP CD?
