Windows 7: BSOD happening after virus, having trouble booting into safe mode.

BSOD happening after virus, having trouble booting into safe mode.

Hello,

Recently, while I was browsing the web awhile ago, my computer had randomly begun to shutdown. I hadn't done anything to trigger this, so I simply rebooted my computer, and headed to Symantec to run a quick scan on my system. Without a doubt, multiple Trojans were detected. I removed them, and then went to access "Adobe Soundbooth CS4," and waited for it to load. After a short amount of time, it caused my computer to blue screen. I had a STOP code of 0x00000050 (and others that pointed to something similar,) so after doing some research, I came to a conclusion that there is most likely a faulty driver hidden somewhere within my computer. Unfortunately, I have not been able to detect a faulty driver. I've used device manager, and found no signals of anything unusual. I tried using verifier.exe and didn't find anything. I'm really at a loss here, and I just can't do this on my own.

My current computer issues since my virus go like this:
  • I Blue Screen when I try to use Adobe Soundbooth CS4 and Adobe Premier Pro.
  • I will Blue Screen randomly.
  • My computer has been slower than usual.
  • I have troubles booting up. (Startup repair doesn't really do much for me.)
  • I cannot enter into Safe Mode. This started today and my computer just restarts when I enter the login screen.
  • My Wifi adapter doesn't work 3/4ths of the time I boot up. (Currently plugged directly into my modem. This problem also started today)
  • System Restore didn't work when I had tried it, and I no longer have any restore points to use that extend past my current computer troubles.
I'm completely at a loss, and I thank you for both reading this and whatever you can do to help. I've attached the required system information below.

Each of your reports report different driver problems, sometimes cause by memory.

Run test for 8 passes, then take each stick and test in the same slot for 6 passes.

Would you mind listing the drivers that had failed? I'm using a laptop, so for me a RAM test would be a last resort.

hpdskflt.sys If you want to go by hunches, this is probably the culprit.
ntkrnlmp.exe It cant be this one.
iaStor.sys,
The last one said
Probably caused by : memory_corruption


The most likely driver hpdskflt.sys
Productname:Hewlett-Packard Corporation Mobile Data Protection System Description:HP Disk Filter Company:Hewlett-Packard Corporation

Your very welcome.
Although it could be the HP driver, usually when different drivers are named its a hardware issue. But lets see what happens.

Got another blue screen after using a driver reinstalled with my hp computer. This time around I got a new STOP code, but, for the first time, right under it the name of a file called "igdkmd64.sys" was revealed.

Any ideas?

My idea is that its a hardware issue, I start with memory. You can just try the first part of the memory test and see what happen.

Ok, I'll try it later.

Can I still do it without removing my ram?

What I am thinking is do the first part (which means dont remove ram), then if passes we can do the built in memory test that comes with Seven. Its not as accurate but better than nothing.
