    I use Malwarebytes Anti-Malware (Free version from CNET), and AVG, (Free version) After the first time -> TURN SYSTEM RESTORE OFF. Run anti-malware program/s one more time. Then TURN SYSTEM RESTORE BACK ON, and create a Restore Point. System Restore also restores the bad stuff. (I then use the free CCleaner, a registry cleaner) Regards, joecoolvette

a few things..have you reinstalled any updates for Windows XP? any of them might fix the problem. also...try this...go to Control Panel, then Device Manager, and find your DVD drive in the list...you might have to click on the + sign to see your drive...right click on the name, and click disable...click ok through the prompts, and restart your PC. Now, go back to Device Manager, repeat this, but click Enable, and XP should reinstall drivers for your DVD burner. Hopefully, this helps things. Best of Luck!

Atapi.sys


Atapi.sys is also a popular infection target for many Trojans. You may get stop codes of 0x00000007A, 0x00000008 and especially:
0x0000000A (0x00000000,0x00000002,0x00000001,<anything>)
which requires a virus scan like AVG 8.5/9.0 to fix since the infected driver has already modified many other files in your system.. (Remove the drive and put it in another machine and then scan it.)

I am glad i am the first person to see this. Rootkits infect some vital processes. I had one once, but i got rid of it.

Try this. Its free, and it works.

Disk space problem in hp dv6000 series


Hi

Probably ur system is infected by a rootkit.Search on the net for antiviruses that find out rootkits in the system. Avg 8.0 or Panda 08 can detect rootkits also.
B4 that just deactivate system restore and see whether this solves ur problem.
I had this problem once and this was due to rootkits, but i hav seen sum systems where its due to system restore.
