help-beginning dump of physical memory

  atc 20:44 04 May 2006

over the last week this message comes up.
beginning dump of physical memory

and these numbers


what does this mean and how do you fix the problem

  remind 21:17 04 May 2006

you need to give more information

windows version, hardware, antivirus software, what you are/were doing when it happened

  atc 21:45 04 May 2006

xp home sp2 version 2002
hardware-pentium 4 2.8ghz 1gb of ram

antivirus-nortons+firewall-the one with btyahoo.

When this happens i was on the net click a page i thing it maybe my home page and it was taken ages then the blue screen came on with the above fault.

Hope this will help

The last thing to be done on the pc are
1) home network
2) norton antivirus from bt
3) limewire

  remind 21:51 04 May 2006

ditch limewire, or stop it running at startup (it will do so unless you go into options and uncheck the relevant box)
iefix click here

blue screens are often hardware problems in XP, so that may not fix anything - it's just a start

XP system file check
start menu/run, type `sfc /scannow` and have your XP CD handy

turned off limewire at startup

iefit-my browsers is btyahoo not IE. Ran it anyway my xp is loaded on drive "D" when i looked for the file after apply the program on the d drive could not find it. Then i canceled the program and completed came up

ran sfc/scannow - went through checking windows after it finished nothing came up

Dont know if you want to try something else or seewhat happens

  johnnyrocker 23:07 04 May 2006

is the lack of a gap between sfc and/ a typo or is that what you ran? and if it was it would be useless, must have the gap


  remind 23:27 04 May 2006

btyahoo browser is just a skin to Internet Explorer (plus tabbed browsing I was surprised to note when i discovered it recently) - you are still using IE as your basic browser.
johnnyrocker makes a valid point the command should be

sfc /scannow

The command is SFC, the parameter is /scannow, there must be a space between the two

  remind 23:32 04 May 2006

Re-reading your post, you have run SFC successfully.
Complete scan with your AV software as per Fruitbat's post , complete scan with some anti-spyware software (click here spywareblaster - install it regardless, spybot or ewido recommended additionally)

  skidzy 23:50 04 May 2006

Ewido link click here as Remind suggests its very good and safe.
Maybe trying MS Defender also click here
Spybot Search and Destroy click here
Adaware click here
Also running these will help tidy your system.

thanks for everyone who helped. I run always run spyware/AV software a lest once a week but i forget about malware. I got rid of 50+ malware items. The pc tidy up links also came in handy as i was looking for something to tidy up the pc. The pc now running faster and the blue screen has not came back up. If it does i'll open a new thred.

thanks again
