Alright. So Spybot found the virus and got rid of it in safe mode. I'm running fine on avast! now. It's perfectly fine now. Howerver I am having another problem now. Varries on timing but if I start up a game, about 10 maybe 15 minutes later I crash. no blue screen, I just crash with my image frozen on screen and I also get a sound loop.

No DMP file included in the upload, please try this method.

We do need the DMP file as it contains the only record of the sequence of events leading up to the crash, what drivers were loaded, and what was responsible.

If you are overclocking STOP

You may be able to get the DMP files without crashing by booting into safe mode (F8) with networking.

To enable us to assist you with your computer's BSOD symptoms, upload the contents of your "\Windows\Minidump" folder.

The procedure:
Quote:
* Copy the contents of \Windows\Minidump to another (temporary) location somewhere on your machine.
* Zip up the copy.
* Attach the ZIP archive to your post using the "paperclip" (file attachments) button.
*If the files are too large please upload them to a file sharing service like "Rapidshare" and put a link to them in your reply.

To ensure minidumps are enabled:
Quote:
* Go to Start, in the Search Box type: sysdm.cpl, press Enter.
* Under the Advanced tab, click on the Startup and Recovery Settings... button.
* Ensure that Automatically restart is unchecked.
* Under the Write Debugging Information header select Small memory dump (256 kB) in the dropdown box (the 256kb varies).
* Ensure that the Small Dump Directory is listed as %systemroot%\Minidump.
* OK your way out.
* Reboot if changes have been made.

You have some major system and registry errors. Recommend SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker. You may have to run this three times to fix any errors.

Due to the registry errors, I have a question: have you at any time run a registry cleaning tool? I ask because such tools are known to cause registry issues more often than they fix them on Windows 7.

Also, due to the registry errors, sfc may not be able to fix the problems. In that event, I recommend backing up your user files and either restoring from a backup image taken before your problems started or doing a clean install as zigzag3143 suggested due to the virus issues. The virus may also have been the culprit in corrupting your system and registry.

Edit: If you run backup and restore through Windows 7 and need help restoring from an image, let us know.

Ah. Yeah I have used tools for registry issues. Ill get right on running that scan. Thanks. Also I'll try to get that BSOD data correctly as well. Sorry about that. Last time I needed BSOD data it recorded fine, that's odd.

Well I just did 3 of those scans you said to do in safemode. Didn't find anything wrong. Im trying to run a scan in normal mode but I can't seem to manage to boot up normal mode today.

Follow the steps in Advanced Boot Options to get the advanced boot options. Then select Last Know Good Configuration (advanced). See if it will boot into Windows after making that selection.

In that case, get to the advanced boot options again, and select Repair Your Computer. Then run a Startup Repair using the steps outlined in OPTION ONE of System Recovery Options to get to the Startup Repair option.
