    Hey all. So I was having a lot of problems with my Macbook Pro that ONLY RUNS Windows Professional XP....

    I took it in to a local PC/Mac repair shop and the guy said I had a lot of viruses and that one of the sectors of my hard drive was bad. So he fixed everything, and while it is running super fast, I have a huge error.

    Whenever I try to load up boot camp, so that I can do basic functions, like change the brightness/volume, AND RIGHT CLICK (which is vital for gaming in tight spaces like I so often enjoy doing), it immediately closes, with Windows giving me the error that is shown in the photograph that I have provided.

    Please help me, as I really would like to know if he did something that should not have been done. I've had issues before, and when I uninstalled Boot Camp and tried to re-install, it would not recognize my Nvidia Graphics Card, which led to MAJOR PROBLEMS when gaming....once I had to re-install my entire OS!!!

    Anyways, am hoping someone can help me out. Thanks!
