Rant: So apparently it's now ok for housecleaners to bring 3 of their friends with them to help "clean," drink the homeowner's beer, and blare their music at full volume. Right then.

Abandoning IPB for phpBB3?!

Yes, yes I am. The one thing that I hate about pay-for software is that getting helpfor it is easy, but when you try to customize the software, good luck doing so without paying for the addons :roll:

Just one suggestion: consider SMF and MyBB first, you may prefer them.

As for WordPress, are you talking about a fully integrated system where each member can have their own blog, or a single/few blogs in which logged-in members' names would be automagically filled-in?

Single blog, unified user system.

Also, I have had experience with your mentioned forumware and much more such as Vanilla and NukeBB. The problem is the community support for phpBB3 as well as my experience with it extends beyond anything else. And for that, I chose phpBB3.

Yes. If I am logged into my WP account, I should be logged into my phpBB3 account as well. I should be able to comment on articles and reply to threads, I should be able to write articles and send PMs, all under one account.

I keep getting the dreaded BoSD (blue screen of death) every time i logon to windows normally. I keep getting the same error:

*** STOP: 0x0000008E (0xC0000005, 0x80563772, 0xF8996640, 0x00000000)

The problem is i can't find much about the error, from google searching, and whats even worse is that i cant view any microsoft support webpage to try and solve the error (even though it won't be much help).

From google searching, i think i have a rootkit problem, and thats bad. I think. I'll probably get a new PC though, this ones getting quite old. :P

:evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil:

At least my PC works in safe mode with networking, so i can at least search and post here. :)

Repairing windows, then running repair/security programs should help.

Interesting aside: My Vista repair disk that came with my laptop will install on any of my computers, though I don't think I have a multi computer license! Neat...

rootkit

I am laughing to myself at luck, or lack there of. Rootkits are the worse form of virus you could possibly imagine. A completely fresh install of Windows is going to be necessary, and that includes formatting your hard drive.

Sounds like a driver problem to me. Did you install any new devices lately?

It's possible that you have a bad stick of ram as well. If you have more than one, try removing one and running the computer. (i.e. If you have four, take out 3, then switch out after each try).

Alternatively, run Memtest on your computer, preferably overnight.

Also, you could have the HaxDoor virus, check here to see. I'm not entirely sure.

It's not hard to make your own Linux flash drive....

Annoyingly my PNY drive doesn't work for this purpose and I was hoping for an easy solution that I could guarantee would work before I tried another brand.

brand should have nothing to do with it, unless the drive is just bloody potato. it's more likely that your computer does not support booting from usb (a bios update can help) or some other issue.

I know little about this subject, but someone from another forum suggested that it would:

First, see if there are two entries for your USB key in the boot menu...sometimes PNY keys (and others, I suppose) have two partitions on them, and one shows up as USB CDROM and the other USD HDD (or FDD). ust try the one you haven't yet.

Only one showed-up, so I presumed one was hidden - although gparted only found one.

No, when i got it I remember it only having one partition. Then I reformatted it and installed [unsuccessfully] Knoppix on it. Then I tried again and it still did not work. I dont think I am going to try again.
