Windows 7: BSOD during sfc /scannow

BSOD during sfc /scannow

I've been having a series of problems with my PC.

Firstly, my startup time would be outrageously long, occasionally with Windows running CHKDSK.
A few times I would get a BSOD while booting the computer and it will try and restart again, and do this until it managed to turn on.

I booted today and I received an error saying "C:\windows\system32\newdev.dll - not a valid win 32 app." and then everything crashed again.

I've done a bit of looking around forums and such, and saw that I should run sfc /scannow to replace any corrupted system files, but when I get to a certain point during the validation phase of the scan, I BSOD again.

I've attached my SF minidump.

Thanks!

It would probably help if you used genuine software - both Windows and your installed Adobe software are counterfeit.

I thought that it could be related, but do you reckon that is the reason behind the BSODs?

All I can say is that a large proportion of the BSOD threads here are closed because of being counterfeits - how large a proportion compared to the real-world incidence of counterfeits, I don't know.

So I won't get any answers from posting here?

Not until you have a demonstrably genuine install, no.

Can't you even look through it and see what is causing the crashes?

No point - it'd change when you reinstall anyhow
