Ntio404.sys
 
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(just a black screen with cursor) so I booted in safe mode,and am in safe mode all the time now
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

That particular file appears to be harmless, it is a part of XP's SP2.
ntio404.sys - File Information

Could you run a scan with hijackthis (if you can)? and post the log file?
http://www.hijackthis.de/downloads/HJTInstall.exe

If it completes, the log file output should be able to give us all the necessary information to help you fix the problem.
