    I have a Dell desk to here that I had on line for the Windows Live
    security scan. After it fished fixing the errors it said the computer
    had to reboot. I clicked ok and it hasn't worked since. I get a blue
    screen with:
    coooo21a {Fatal System Error}
    The Windows Logon Process system process terminated unexpectedly
    with a status of 0xc0000005 (0x00000000 0x00000000).

    Any help greatly appreciated...

    I'm not sure if the scan changes caused the crash but would sure
    hope Micro Soft wouldn't create a program that would cause their
    own system to crash....

    Dennis,

    See if the steps below will resolve the error message.

    1. Go to safe mode by pressing F8 when booting up
    2. In safe mode, click stark>run and type in msconfig and hit enter
    3. Under general tab select Diagnostic Startup and hit apply and restart your computer in normal mode
    4. After restarting your computer, if internet is working, do windows update and install SP3
    5. After restarting your computer, if internet doesn't work, go to msconfig and under services, enable only the obvious microsoft services and restart
    6. Once done with SP3 install, your computer should be good to go.

    Dennis,

    It looks like you will need to format and reinstall Windows to resolve this issue. I know its not what you want to hear.

    Can you get to the point where you can choose Safe Mode from a list? If
    so, try the "Restore the computer to the last known working
    configuration" or something to that effect. If not, bite the bullet and
    reinstall XP. I trust you have all your data backed up.

    Also tried "Last known good configuration". Still have the same
    Blue Screen... I'm going to try a Windows repair before a
    complete reinstall and see if that fixes things.

    I got this fixed doing a Windows repair. When install said there
    was already Windows installed, I hit R to repair it. All the
    programs still work. Except Windows task Manager. I posted a
    a separate question about that.

    I got it running but here is the answers as best I know since it is my
    nephew's pc.

    1. A pop up that wouldn't stop and generally slow, poor performance.
    I ran the protection scan then the full scan.

    2. I thought it was but not sure because after I repaired the
    installation and downloaded up dated, SP-3 was one that installed.

    3. McAfee, Superatispyware, and Malwarebytes were installed at the time.
    There were three "unwanteds" that is said could not be removed.
    I scanned the drive again as a slave and found several trojans and
    downloaders.

    4. McAfee is still installed.

    5. I don't know about preinstalled programs.

    Also, the pop up that kept asking for disk 1 to install Status was
    an HP printer program of some sort. I kept uninstalling HP programs
    till it stopped.

    I don't know for sure. When I got it to where I could get it
    to boot up in Windows XP Pro, I went on line right away to scan it.
    When I did the repair it downloaded IE 7 and wanted to install it
    while other files were still being downloaded. I click on "Remind
    me Later". But, IE didn't work till I installed IE 7 from a separate
    disc. Clicking IE just gave me an error message that it had to
    close and it made a desk top shortcut to IE that didn't work. That
    was new to me, click a desk top icon and it made a another desk top
    icon that didn't work either.

    Your comment that "IE didn't work till I installed IE7" suggests that one of
    them was prior to the Repair Install.

    Tip: If Favorites Center (CTRL+I) and its Gold Star on the left-hand side of
    the IE toolbar were present before you did the Repair Install, IE7 or IE8
    was installed.

    What "downloaded IE7 and wanted to install it" (e.g., Automatic Updates;
    Windows Update website)?

    Is the computer currently fully-patched at Windows Update?

    Dennis Flightless Bird

    It was Windows Update that was installing downloaded files when
    it wanted to set up IE 7, so I assumed it was Windows Update that
    downloaded IE7.
    All Windows Updates, except IE8, are now downloaded and installed
    and everything works fine. The only think I had to reinstall were
    the sound drivers. All other programs I tried, worked after the
    repair. The computer is back at my nephew's house. That will be
    a test because his kids are hard on computers... lol

    [To keep track of things, it helps immensely if you continue to quote all of
    the previous message(s) in your replies to the newsgroup. Thank you.]

    Well, that's highly unusual: If all was well with the computer (and again I
    suggest such is not the case), Windows Update should have offered IE8 to a
    WinXP computer running IE6, not IE7. The fact that IE7 was offered suggests
    that IE7 was installed when you did the Repair Install. I'll once again
    point you to...

    How to perform a repair installation of Windows XP if a later version of
    Internet Explorer is installed
    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/917964

    In short, you must uninstall IE7 and/or IE8 before doing a Repair Install.
    Neglecting to do so will leave Windows (and IE) in a "confused" state (hence
    Windows Update offering IE7) and the only resolution is a clean install.

    Note: The More Information (troubleshooting) section of KB917964 is
    unfortunately very misleading and only applies to computers where a Repair
    Install has *not* been performed yet.

    Uninstalling IE 7 or 8 might work in the Repair Console mode but I
    have never had anything else work when I tried using the Repair Console.
    When I type i what it says to do to fix something, it has never been
    fixed in any of the times I've tried Repair Consol. That is why I use
    the Windows Repair installation I use.

    I understand what you did and how you did it. The point is that if you
    failed to manually uninstall IE7 before you did the Repair Install, doing so
    has left Windows (and IE) in a "confused state" (as evidenced by IE7, not
    IE8, being offered by Windows Update).

    The only recourse now is a clean install.
