Do you use NOD32 Anti Virus?

Sorry, forgot the link click here

Also if you type amon.sys into Google there are many options.

i do use NOD32 avtivirus, and by googling "amon.sys" it has come up with NOD32 problems.

what do you suggest i do? start up in safe mode and uninstall NOD32?

i really appreciate your help mate :)

click here for info on this file from Eset.

If you continue to have problems I would contact Eset support.

Amon is a memory resident driver that loads on startup. It would seem that something has happend to it, preventing it from loading and causing your STOP error. The problem is, how do you get into your PC to sort it. Safe Mode may work. My suggestion would be to try this and unistall NOD32. You should then be able to restart normally and reinstall it. I would not ditch NOD32, it's probably the best AV there is.

If you can though I would get advice from Eset first.

You will probably need your codes etc.

i used safe mode and uninstalled NOD32, and its fine :D. i have to say you are a legend ventanas, its fantastic how people selflessly help other people on this forum (and others). thanks again, your help is very much appreciated :)

Glad you got it sorted. Did you reinstall afterwards, or are you now without AV. I don't think anyone would disagree that NOD32 is about the best there is. I've used it for a while. I would try it again and see what happens.

Thanks for your kind remarks.
