I don't remember the name fo the free anti virus software.


I do have to warn you that there are a number of free anti-virus software are actually spyware/malware in disguise. I've seen that these things can cause blue screens but I'm not 100% sure if it's the main culprit.

Bluescreens can sometimes occour due to extensive porn surfing.

Then most of our computers would die in two days of purchase.

you could try to get access to your hard disk with a linux live CD like Knoppix or something like that, this should at least work if it is just a windows system error and not a hardware defect.

And after getting your data back, get rid of window$ for a good Linux system. Or at least buy a mac.

The only way to resolve this issue, at this point, is to re-install Windows. And what I meant is not re-format the hard drive and install Windows but install Windows XP over your old one. That way, all of your files, except for your Windows updates, etc, will still be intact.

Is is possible to stuck your harddisk into a different PC on an IDE-slave port ? Then that other PC would start up as usual with the IDE-master port booting his own harddisk and your dead one should be visible in the Windows Explorer as Drive D:\ like a normal directory. Then you can copy away all the data.
