I have the same issue with Windows XP home. Sp3
I have check for updates but I select when and which to apply, however
having been in a major rush last friday I closed all openprograms and run all
updates. At the end I got a blue screen which would not let the system close
advising there was a Kernel_data_inpage_error in relation to *** STOP
0x0000007a (0xc07c4d60, xxxxxxxx, xxxxxxxx ) I had to resolve shutting off
After trying reboot it would not start just showed XP logo and kept the bar
reflecting trying to install but nothing happens. I shut down power again but
this time it gave me Windows failed to close and offered alloptions to
reboot. I after a few time eventually worked out to finally restore to
previous point which worked.
The Update logo still shows and unfortunately as I had not deleted the
attemped update files the system last night decided to re-install so I woke
to the system back in blue screen failing to close.
I started in safe mode and restored to previous point which works fine
The Updates trying to install-
KB890830 ( I note 5 of these are the same updates in the thread)
So whats the solution? I am about to delete the download installation files
I assume best thing is to install one at a time to see which of these are
the culprit for causing the box not to start.
