Hi dalmacietis
Are you running OC? If so, recommend turning it off. Once we solve your problem, you can always turn it back on.

Yes, I backed up my files as soon as I got into Safe Mode the first time.
Will do chkdsk tonight again, thanks

EDIT: No, I'm not overclocking.

Start Menu\Programs\Free Registry Cleaner


PLEASE do yourself and your PC a big favour and UNDO whatever it may have done - and then uninstall it!

ALL registry cleaners are snake-oil products.

Hello dalmacietis and welcome to the SevenForums,

To add to the already great advice given here

----------

Please fill in your system specs by following this tutorial.

A 0x1E bug check, especially with a C0000005 parameter, is a memory related BSoD.
It can be caused by faulty RAM, incompatible drivers, wrongly installed hardware etc etc.
More info Bug Check 0x1E

----------

So, to shoot the obvious ones down first; did you recently install any new hardware?
And, have you updated any drivers recently?

----------

Now for the RAM, please run Memtest86+ to test your RAM for issues.

Tip   Tip
Let Memtest run for at least 10 passes and preferably overnight as it may take very long to complete.
Especially read part three of the tutorial, which explains you to test each RAM stick in all DIMM slots to filter out failing slots.

It is a RAM, a bad RAM.

But if you have got a result like that:
testSlot1Slot2
RAM1ErrorGood
RAM2ErrorGood
It is a motherboard issue. The particular slot is bad.

A 0xF7 bug check is a whole new story. This bug check is most commonly (but definitely not always) related to hacking attempts.

You said that MBAM, MSE, ESET and SUPERAnti Spyware have found threads, have you succesfully quarantined and deleted the threads?

This software (especially the registry cleaners!) is known to cause many a BSoD and it is highly recommended to remove it.
  • Download and install Revo Uninstaller.
  • Right click the program that needs to be removed, and click on Uninstall.
  • Select "Advanced" as uninstall mode.
  • Let Revo remove the program, and afterwards please follow the displayed steps to remove all entries of the program as well.
  • When all programs have been uninstalled, please restart your machine.


Good luck and keep us posted,

Oh..

Well, I have used both Eusing Free Registry Cleaner and CCleaner's registry cleaner many times, and I have registry back ups from several years ago. If I want to

No and no.
Although AFTER the BSOD I looked at the hidden drivers and there was one that couldn't be found so I deleted it.
I also recently changed (enlarged) the Pagefile size.

Got rid of the registry and driver cleaners, but not uTorrent and DAEMON Tools since I have a need for their respective features. Perhaps there is a more stable (with respect to BSODs) alternative?

You're welcome
Thanks for filling in your system specs, this makes the troubleshooting process a whole lot easier for us.
Don't forget to run Memtest though.

Enlarging the pagefile size shouldn't be a problem to my knowledge, but removing a hidden driver might be. Do you have any more info for us?

Hmm, then we should be good on that part. To be 100% sure you could always create a thread in our system security subforum, our resident Malware Exterminators know exactly how to keep unwanted people out of your machine

The main problem with Daemon Tools is that it uses SPTD.sys, which is the SCSI host. This is known to cause blue screens of death. I don't use any virtual drive software for myself, so I don't know of any SPTD-free alternative, but I am sure that someone else here will know

The problem with UTorrent, and really any torrent P2P file sharing client, is that you don't know who sends you the data. P2P file sharing is the number 3 cause of malware infestations. Here is the canned I use for this scenario, I suggest reading it carefully;

P2P Warning!

Important: I notice that there are one or more P2P (Person to person) file sharing programs on your computer;

1. UTorrent

Please note that using any form of peer to peer networking is highly dangerous, as there is no way to identify the source of the files you download, and you can expect an infestation of malware to occur.

Years ago P2P file sharing was safe and easy to do. And while the latter may still be so today, it is most certainly not safe anymore. A peer to peer program is a direct conduit into your computer. Most of these programs lack proper security measures and malware writers can easily breach them, and they continue to exploit the users of these programs to spread their malware.
As addition to that; while using a P2P program, your computer may be sharing way more than you want it to. There have been reports of people's passwords, personal, private and financial data being exposed via P2P networks, only because they had a peer to peer program installed, and lacked the skills to configure it properly.

Please read the following reports on the dangers of using peer to peer programs and file sharing.
Risks of P2P systems.
File sharing infects 500.000 computers.
File sharing dangers involve more than legal troubles.
Seattle man arrested for P2P identity theft.

I highly recommend that you uninstall the above mentioned P2P programs, as I can not guarantee your safety from malware if you leave them installed and the likelihood of reinfection is very high to certain.
You can uninstall them by doing the following steps;
  1. Click on the .
  2. Click on Control Panel and under Programs click on Uninstall a program.
  3. Wait for the list to update, and when done, please right-click on the icon of the program(s) mentioned above and select Uninstall.
  4. Follow the on screen instructions, and when prompted, please restart your computer.

    When you have multiple P2P programs installed Click No - I will manually restart later when prompted to restart, and repeat steps three and four until all programs are uninstalled, and click Yes - Restart now when you have finished uninstalling the last P2P program.
    If you choose not to uninstall them, please refrain from using any P2P program during this fix! Using them may interfere with any measures we may take.


Good luck and keep us posted,
Nommy

I would suggest taking care of the power supply problem first before anything else. When power supplied go bad they can damage the rest of the system.

I will check the PSU promptly. Are the negative temperatures in the same report OK?

IIRC, the driver was called AswRdr and it seems it was a part of avast! AV.
