After restarting the computer following a malwarebytes scan, I could not get into window, nor safe mode and system restore by pressing F8 at start up. What I only had after running a little while is BSOD. Btw, I ran diagnostic test a few times. All passed.
After this happened and I did some searching online, I decided to run a windows xp repair by using the original OEM window xp installation CD (sp2) when the system inside the computer is sp3 after I updated it long ago.
I followed the processes suggested by the following webpage.
It was all fine until Part 4 in that webpage. A BSOD popped out after the windows symbol in Part 3.
And I noticed some new sentences at the bottom of the BSOD which are like ‘physical memory dump’.
Hopefully, solutions for all of this would be recommended by someone. I don’t even really dare to switch the computer back on now!
Sorry if I have posted in the wrong section of the forum. If I have done it, please move this post to the right section. Thank you in advance.

Sorry about the BSOD -- sounds as if the infection probably damaged some OS files, as can happen with today's bad malware.
Since this is malware-related, you'll need to post in the malware removal section & get cleaned up first (if there are other issues remaining after that, they might refer you back here).
Here are some guidelines on how to start the process:
- Please print out, read and carefully follow the instructions in the "I'm Infected - What Do I Do Now?" article.
- -->If the infection has so crippled the computer that you cannot complete some or all of the steps, then just do the best you can and start a new topic as described below.
- Then please start a new post in the Malware Removal Forum.
- An authorized, trained malware expert will provide free, one-on-one assistance as soon as one becomes available.
- When starting your new post, please note the following:
- Please do NOT post in a topic started by someone else, even if their problem sounds similar.
- Please COPY/PASTE the requested logs directly into your post, rather than attaching them.
- Under options, please be sure to select "track this topic" and "immediate email notification", so you'll know when a helper responds.
- Please be patient - it may be 48 hours or more before a helper can assist you, especially when the forum is very busy.
- Please do NOT "bump" your topic or reply back to it for at least 48 hours.
- Doing so may cause your topic to be overlooked, as it will appear that you are already being helped.
Please be patient – someone will assist you as soon as possible.
Thank you very much,

You have also started a topic at the Bleeping Computer forum located => HERE.
I think it would be a good idea to either continue the help here or over at the Malwarebytes forum. Seeking help for the same issue in two different forums not only takes up resources from the helpers but it could make it harder for the helpers because the helpers have no way of know what you have tired or which instruction's you have followed.
I say pick a place and continue in only one of the two places.
