Windows 7: FATAL: Unable to connect to the service (hr=8007043C)

Win 7 Ultimate
FATAL: Unable to connect to the service (hr=8007043C)

Hello Gurus,

I encountered an error while installing a software and Windows 7 prompted me to install a hotfix in order to resolve the issue.
I got a mail with the link to install the hotfix and I did so.
Post installing this, my windows just wont boot in the normal mode always throwing the physical memory dump.

I used the SF Diagnostic Tool to analyse the errors.
Please find attached the files for your reference.
Sadly I do not have a system restore as well.

Kindly help.


P.S : The hotfix link that I got on mail is given below.
