    Alright I just went to update my WinXp from Microsofts automatic updater. It downloaded and installed the updates and then asked me to restart. Now when ever I restart I get a
    Stop: 0x0000007E (0xC000005, 0xF961715B, 0xF9E79130, 0xF9E78E30) blue screen error. I've tried repairing with my WinXP disk...nothing. Tried starting up in Safe Mode and I get another error that says "Winlogon.exe - Entry Point Not Found AssocIsDangerous could not be located in Dynamic Link Library Shlwapi.dll"...I click okay and the I get a WinXP setup cannot be continued in SafeMode...restarting. I've got boot floppies, and a winxp cd full version. I'd rather not reformat my comp if at all possible. One minute the whole system was working like a breeze and now...nothing. Can't even get into windows. And the Last Known Working Recovery option doesn't seem to be working either. I'm truly at a loss.

    Reboot the computer. When it finishes, press Ctrl+ALT+DEL to bring up task manager. Click New Task.

    On the new page, click the Browse Button. Browse to

    C:\windows\windows update setup files

    Run ie6setup.exe

    That last Response is not going to work. Sorry. I overlooked the BSOD you are getting.

    I am not sure what you Downloaded and installed. Sounds like IE and possibly a driver too.

    Try this technique:

    See if it helps. I would turn off automatic updates. I did. Go to Windows Update yourself. Review carefully before you install anything.

    I hadn't updated IE...all I remember is downloading and installing the last 2 critical updates and 2 other recommended updates on the autoupdate page. I did go to the site myself to do this...windows didn't just do it automatically. But that still doesn't explain why I'd have a sudden inability to access windows.

    Anyone know how I might access a dos prompt through XP if I can't go into windows? I'd be willing to format and do a fresh install as long as I could back up my files through dos or something.

    Which file system are you using? Did you try the Registry and then restore in that link yet? It really looks worse than it is.


    What OS are you using at the moment? You can create a DOS bootdisk and use it to take you to a prompt. From there you can copy files. But I would wait and try to get into Windows first.

    If you have FAT32 you ,might actually have an easier time using those directions and a boot disk rather than Recovery Console. You can directly try copying the registry files from one of your Restore Points to see if you get into Windows. From there, use a restore point to go back to an earlier date.
