Error message STOP 0x000000F4

Hello, my pc's antivirus/antispyware system (panda) periodically asks me to get updates for windows and yesterday it asked me to do an update urgently. It took my system about 1/2 hour to update and when trying to access windows it came up with the same error message. The technical info is as follows: STOP: 0x000000F4 (0x00000003, 0x82A10020, 0x82A10194, 0x805FA7A8)... I have windows office professional xp installed and I believe the system was trying to install service pack 3 when this happened...
Would anybody know how to resolve this problem? Should I restore the harddisk? I haven't got a clue. Thanks so much!!! Julia

    Hello,ecmorgano, thank you, but the system doesn't allow me to restore it. When I hit Safe Mode I see another screen for a moment and then again the blue screen with the error message comes up... There are three different 'safe modes' though. Should I try the others? Anyway, thanks a lot for trying to help!! Julia

    Thank you, but I have had no luck with booting with the CD either. The pc makes a lot of noise, you can tell that it's trying to run the CD, but there's no message related to the Window's CD, the only message that keeps coming up is that on a blue screen, reporting the error (by the way, the numbers inside the brackets change each time). Thanks a lot for trying to help! One question: the access IBM facility offers the possiblility to restore the harddisk. Would that make any sense? Since I can't get into Windows, can't see the CD program, this would be my only possibility I suppose. Although I'd lose programs, might it not resolve the possible hardware issue that you mentioned? Cheers!! :-)

    Hi, when I hit F12 the Boot Menu comes up. It says:



    2: Legacy Floppy Drives

    3. IDE HDDO: IC25N040ATCS05-0-(PM)

    6: ATAPI CD0: UJDA765 DUD/CDRW- (SM)

    8: PCI LAN: IBA GE Slot 0208 v121







    The Window CD is inside the pc at all times. What should I do...?

    Cheers, Julia

I didn't see anyone mention it, so, reset the BIOS (check manufacturers' site for instructions), and see if that helps.

Okay, first, try to boot to Safe Mode (hit F8 while booting) and run System Restore. Go back to a day or two before your issue occurred.

Once restored, open up My Computer, right click on your C Drive, then click "Properties", then the "Tools" tab, then under "Error Checking" click "Check Now". Then, reboot so it can run the scan. You might have a hard drive issue that Chkdsk can resolve. Post back with how this goes.

    Eeek. Okay, try booting with your Windows CD, follow the prompts to Repair Windows, and when you get to the Recovery Console C:> prompt, type in "chkdsk c: /r" and let it run. Post back with how it goes.

    When you're booting the PC, look on the screen when it first is booting with the Lenovo logo. Look for a prompt for a Boot or Startup menu. It might be Del or F12 (for some reason, different computers use different keys.) Try hitting one of those keys when you see the Lenovo logo and while the Windows disc is in the CD drive. Then, follow the prompts to Windows Setup. Remember, the choice you want is the Repair the Windows installation ("R") which will then bring you to the Recovery Console. Once there, if it asks for an Administrator password and you didn't set one up originally, you can just press Enter. Then at the C:> prompt, run the Chkdsk tool as noted above. Post back how it goes.

    You want the ATAPI CD-ROM drive. Make sure the Windows disc is in it. Then follow the directions listed above. Post back with how the Chkdsk goes.

your operating system is running in 64bit platform... but the panda anti virus setup you are trying to install is supported only for 32bit operating systems only...

there is no problem with the setup or with your computer .. it is just that anti virus setup you have does not support 64bit operating system

Antivirus stopped working


Have you check your system to see if you have a firewall activated? If that is not the case you should reinstall your antivirus software.
