Local Disk C problem

February 21, 2009 at 12:26:00
Specs: Windows XP
When I try to open LDC, I get a message that says "S-4-4-52-100006109-100020984-100011420-4268.com has encountered a problem and needs to close." Before this problem occurred, I had opened a movie file I downloaded. I accepted the liscence agreement and got a blue screen that said something about a complete physical memory dump, and I had to restart my computer. (i will no longer be downloading ANYTHING anymore, lol)
I've thought about doing a System Restore, but as this is my in-law's computer, niether me nor them know when the last restore point was set to. Their anti-virus program has not detected any viruses (though it does need a new update...which for some reason will not work). Do I have a virus, or will a system restore fix my issue? The only important files we have are on the desktop. I can easily back those up on a disk.
So what's the diagnosis? By the way, I run XP Service Pack 2.

What is "LDC?"

Local Disk C...which is what the topic is about. Sorry about the confusion. I'm used to my computer savvy friends using abbreviations, lol.

Did you look to see when the last System Restore was? I'd start there.

Just out of curiosity, what license agreement were you required to agree to by downloading a move? Sounds like you installed some spyware or a virus.

Just a note: in my years of computer experience, I've never heard of the C:\ referred to as LDC. Landlocked Developed Country, or Less Developed Country, but not Local Disk C. :)
