ntoskrnl.exe BSOD - on boot-up XP

  onthelimit1 02 Jan 13

Aging Mesh blue screens after a users password is entered. Perfectly OK in Safe Mode. Have tried changing Ram. Removed video card and tried using on-board. Used CCleaner to stop all progs on boot. Ran malwarebytes. Any other thought before I restore to factory settings?

Should have mentioned, no new hardware or deliberate driver updates. System Restore did not help.

Repair XP by replacing corrupt files Type

sfc /scannow

in the run box, press enter and let system file checker find and replace missing / corrupt file in windows and explorer.This will take awhile to complete and you may be asked for the CD to be in the drive if windows is not preinstalled on the hard drive.

ntoskrnl.exe BSOD. Is a pain as it can have many many causes so rather than me giving advice have a look here. Microsoft.

Did you look at my last link here?

Missing or corrupt files is most likely cause.
