Windows 7: BSOD right after boot, even in Safe Mode

Here's what it says when I run chkdsk:




I also downloaded and burned a Kaspersky Rescue Disk. I've been running it for 3.5hrs so far and it's only at 1% scanned....this is gonna take days. Is this normal?

Disk check looks clean.

The Kaspersky scan should not be that slow... Is it still progressing at a snail's pace? If so, try the Bitdefender rescue CD: Index of /rescue_cd

I scanned with BitDefender and got 1 threat in 2 items:

Exploit.CVE.2007-0071.Gen

I removed both.

Still getting BSOD right after it says Starting Windows...

Glad BitDefender cleaned up the system.

Check Windows for corrupted files by running SFC /SCANNOW : Run in Command Prompt at Boot. You should run it three times with a restart between each run.

I did the sfc scannow. It said:

'Beginning system scan. This process will take some time.

Windows Resource Protection could not perform the requested operation.'

Are you sure you used the correct drive letter? It may not be C: and could be D:, E:, F:, or even G: depending on your partition layout. To determine which drive it is, you want to find the drive containing the Windows folder. The following commands will help in this regard:
C:
dir
D:
dir
E:
dir
F:
dir
G:
dir

Yea I made that mistake the first time I ran chkdsk. But I figured out my drive letter is D. So I re-ran chkdsk and it took a few hours, everything was good.

I just ran sfc /scannow /offbootdir=d:\ /offwindir=d:\windows for the 2nd time and still get 'Windows Resource Protection could not perform the requested operation.'

Unfortunately, that may mean you have a corrupted Windows installation that even SFC repairs cannot fix. It may be time to backup your data and do a Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7. Some of the steps will not apply since you do not have a pre-manufactured system, but just disregard anything that applies to such systems. That tutorial is still the best method for a re-install.

For backing up your system: Copy & Paste - in Windows Recovery Console


Before attempting the re-install, you could try the steps for Troubleshooting Windows 7 Failure to Boot (some you have already done, so skip those steps that you already did).

Ok question for backing up my data. Since I only have 1 hard drive, would it be easier to buy another hard drive and do what it says in that back-up tutorial. Or buy a external HDD enclosure and put my current one into that, hook it up to a laptop, back up the data, then put it back in my computer, reformat and reinstall windows on it?

It would probably be easier to get an external. We actually recommend backing up data on a regular basis anyway, so if you get an external, you can have peace of mind in the future that you have your data backed up. You can even create system images so you can restore your system to a point in time prior to issues that arise (after backing up the current data since the system image will overwrite it). There is a forum in SevenForums to this end: Backup and Restore - Windows 7 Forums and you are welcome to start a thread there to find out more about backing up and restoring your system.
