Try this if you can get into Windows at all.<br><br>
CONTINUOUS PERFORMANCE: : To ensure that Windows XP performs at its best all the time you can use the System file checker to locate any missing or damaged system files and replace them. Click on ''Start'' ''Run'' and type exactly WITHOUT quotation marks ''sfc /scannow'' and press ''Enter''.The windows file protection monitor will now scan your entire system for missing or damaged files.Keep your original Windows XP CD at hand as you may be asked for it to replace any missing or damaged files. Other commands that can be used for this step are:<br><br>
System File Checker Utility (Scan Immediately) sfc /scannow<br>
System File Checker Utility (Scan Once At Next Boot) sfc /scanonce<br>
System File Checker Utility (Scan On Every Boot) sfc /scanboot<br>
System File Checker Utility (Return to Default Setting) sfc /revert<br>
System File Checker Utility (Purge File Cache) sfc /purgecache<br>
System File Checker Utility (Set Cache Size to size x) sfc /cachesize=x<br><br><br>
Also i would try a Repair install of Windows.

have you tried doing a system restore to before you did the virus scan, certainly helped me out at times when i screwed up.<br>
Make sure you if you do another scan to heal rather than quarantine any files as this may well be the cause of your problems.

Infact you need to disable system restore before a scan as Virus's get into the system restore.

yes indeed they do, however restore will put back the corrupted file+virus, then it can be healed surely. anyway its only an idea.!!!!!!<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/rolleyes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Roll Eyes (Sarcastic)">

Yes its a good idea. It may revert the kist system file. However once it does that you will need to disable system restore and scan again.

i think that the whole issue occured when i changed the XP pagefile directory to the same of Vista beta and it asked if i wanted to overwrite the pagefile and i did.....maybe a stupid mistake

Overwriting a Temp file location will not have caused this error however this is an error i beleive for the Virtual side of Windows. However if you can get back into either OS put the Pagefiling system back to ''System managed size''
