Windows 7: IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL BSOD

IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL BSOD

Yes, I realize there is a thread with the same topic a little ways down the page.
Yes, I have read the BSOD posting guide.
Yes, I have extensively searched on this forum as well as others.

Yesterday I started having the BSOD with the error stated above, this is the first time this has ever happened on this computer.
Computer specs:
Win7 Pro 64 bit
no hardware older than 6 mo. old

When I start the computer all is well until I type in my password to log in, and as windows is loading, it crashes. every. single. time. I get the same error every time, with no exceptions. The CPU is idling at 37-38*C consistently and I tested each ram stick one at a time, so unless both are bad (which I doubt), the ram is fine. I would upload the minidump files for you guys to read but, since I cant even load windows for a minute, that is relatively impossible. Thanks for any help.

Can you boot into Safe Mode with Networking (f8) and do the BSOD Posting Instructions?

No I can't it crashes every time I boot no matter what mode its in. A few days ago when it first started happening it did it 6 times in a row, then worked fine for the rest of the night. The next day it wouldn't boot without crashing at all, and thats how it is today.

The attachment below just popped up, would it have anything to do with this?

Thank you, I actually found this out last night as comcast emailed my dad stating a computer in the house was infected with this malware, the problem is, I am using a hard drive from an old computer right now (vista) and I actually already downloaded what you reccomended last night, but cant get it to scan the other hard drive with win7 on it, it only scans the one I currently use.

Extract the TDSSKiller.exe to a USB drive, right on the root directory (F:\, G:\, whatever the letter is).

Boot up the DVD or repair CD again, and open the command prompt as before. Enter the following:
Code:
f:\tdsskiller.exe
If you are getting about not finding that file, replace F with G, E or even H (if you have a lot of drives!)

The problem with that is, I downloaded Win7Pro with the student discount, and burned the ISO to a DVD so all I have is the installation DVD, nothing else.

Boot to the Win 7 DVD, click repair my computer, run Command Prompt and run that command I suggested above.

Hello! I've been here before with almost the same system as last time. This time I have a new GPU, and I swapped because I had a BSOD-free month or so and so I didn't think it would be a problem as I thought my "home cures" had worked. So I reinstalled windows to clean my computer from trash...
