Help im using vista on an acer5315
 
hi there hope u can help, im using vista on an acer5315 lappy and about a week ago it intermittently shut down every day or so
Just a quick flash of BSOD and straight to reboot until the other day it wouldnt boot in normal mode so I booted in safe mode
So i eventually got sick of this and investigated, deleted a few progs(more or less unused ones)and updated and ran my antivurus(avast home) and it got stuck-like just stalled-in sys32

I suspected either a virus or a corupted reg or something(im no expert)

i ran a couple of anti spywares and they seemed to get stuck in same spot

the particular file was the NTIO404.SYS one


heres alist of sys 32

Volume in drive C is ACER
Volume Serial Number is D84B-8B3B

Directory of C:\Windows\system32

There is a strong possibility that you have been infected by a root kit foob which attaches to this system and creates some new registry keys and then denies you permissions to change or delete them.

I would go ahead and reformat and reinstall after saving what data files you can .

1) to be honest I really don't know this answer. I would assume that no that it would not as all safe mode does is stops a lot of the eye candy (non essential components) and installed applications from loading at start up The core components run ok

I have been running windows 7 on a test machine for a few months and really like the system. There are still a couple of glitches that pop up from time to time. Overall it is fairly stable and fast.
