Specs: Windows XP
I keep getting a "page fault in non paged error" everytime at start-up. I tried to start it in safe-mode but that doesnt go anywhere. Right before the system shut down I was attacked by an antiviral program virus asking me to buy it. I need help!!!

What exactly happens when you try to start in safemode?

"that doesnt go anywhere." is not an accurate description.

Do you get the same kind of error message? Logging into safemode requires use of the Admin account password. Do you know it? It may be blank.

There are millions of hits on google for this type error and it may be either hardware or software related. Since you know your system has been compromised by one of those antivirus nags there is a good chance yours is a software problem. If you can get into safemode I suggest you should turn off system restore. This will delete all previous restore points but they were likely to have been infected anyway.
Then see if you can run antivirus and other malware scans.

When I try to run in safemode, it starts to run all these command prompts for drivers and ends up with a blue screen with "_ ?" at the top. It wont let me type a password or anything.

I got it fixed! I ran the PC doctor before windows start up and it did a windows restore. Thanks for the help though.
