Windows 7: Application Verifier Stops Windows From Loading???

Application Verifier Stops Windows From Loading???

I'm a developer, but it appears I've royally screwed my machine.

I was debugging my code with WinDbg (novice user) trying to figure out an issue and I ran gflags.exe and enabled the checkbox for Application Verifier. I restarted WinDbg and Windows complained it couldn't start the application. I thought it was some weirdness with WinDbg, but then I noticed I couldn't run my web browser with the same error message. My machine eventually locked up on me so I said screw it, and I rebooted my machine.

Now when I start the machine it says Windows can't start, if I don't run the repair program it just hangs with a blinking underscore. I ran the repair program which says it will try to restore it, but this was at the end of the day on my work machine so I had to head home.

I can understand how enabling Application Verifier could screw up an application, but how in the world did it bring my whole system down?

Just to clarify, the thread mentions 'Driver Verifier', is that part of 'Application Verifier'?
