I recently updated my Windows XP Professional Service Pack 2 to Service Pack 3. After successfully installing the updates, the computer prompts to reboot my system, after rebooting, Blue Screen Stop Error flashed to my screen with stop error code: STOP: 0x0000007E.
I cannot run my windows since this error keeps appearing every time I restarted my computer. But I can access my windows normally if I booted to safe mode. While on safe mode, my computer boots correctly and everything is fine. I searched on the net and found too many solutions. They say that it has something to do with REGEDIT. I am not an expert to this. And I don't know how to fix it and I don't even want to touch it or I will make my problem worst. My laptop model is HP Pavilion and I am running Windows XP Home Edition Service Pack 2 with AMD Athlon inside, 2Gb RAM, 250Gb Hard Disk.
All my software are updated. I am running Norton as my anti virus. I want to know if there's anyone here who knows how to fix registry and a step by step procedure on how to resolve the issue. But if you have better solution please let me know. Regards.
