no choice now - it's running and it seems to be taking a VERY long time, as if it's stuck or something. CRAP!

Okay it's working, but VERY slowly

Is it slow for a mechanical Hard drive, probably 5400 RPM? The SSD is not being used now and it's too small to put Windows 7 on.

This is the external HDD that it is running the chkdsk on - only 570 files processed in 4 hours,....but, at least no BSOD yet!

Well, it will be a good test for it. It may not be the IRST making it crash, it could be the RST software.

Okay so it had been over 4 hours and only 648 files completed so I clicked the cancel button. I burned the rescue ISO and now I will reboot to make sure it boots the system to Macrium. Then I will reboot into the OS with the external HDD attached and see if it still wants to chkdsk...

Here is something strange. I booted to the Macrium Rescue CD - worked fine, then I booted back into the OS with the ExtHDD attached. It did not ask to chkdsk the extHDD. I looked in Explorer and I could see files in there - just not the files *I* had put in there. I opened a few and they opened fine. So, I ran a chkdsk on it - went really fast. I looked again, and noticed the Macrium image I had made was 0 bytes (I knew something was up, b/c when I booted into the Macrium recovery environment, there was no image found...). The backup I had made of her user files was nowhere to be found either - not even an empty folder. It appears that everything I had made while the system was not functioning properly is gone.

Does that make any sense? I am in process of making a new Macrium image now.

Well, it does in the sense that stopping Check Disk once it has started can corrupt data. If you make a Macrium image now, you could only restore it to the way it is now. If I understand you correctly, it isn't working quite right.

Just to be clear:

Before I started working on this thing, I connected the extHDD, copied the user folder onto it, and then made a macrium image of the entire disk.

Today, after we (aparently) fixed the BSOD problem, I plugged in the extHDD, and the computer wanted to chkdsk it. I let it, and in over 4 hours it had only got through 648 files, so I clicked the cancel button. In File Explorer(Computer) the extHDD showed as unreadable. I rebooted and looked at the extHDD, it was there, and readable. However, the user folder was not there, and the macrium folder was there, but the image was 0 bytes. I ran chkdsk again, it went through really fast this time, gave me a report, and everything seems fine. The only thing is, it seems that everything I put on the external disk before we fixed the IRST issue, is either not there, or empty file.

Why would it do that? Nothing was "Found" from the chkdsk operation. Could it be that anything saved while the computer was unstable just never took? Does that seem like a possible scenario?

My opinion is anything is possible with computers. But, I wouldn't think that. Usually if an error is detected in the hard drive, macrium will abort and tell you there was an error with the hard drive. I've had that happen a couple of times. More than likely is when you aborted the Check Disk, the data was lost. That will happen with check disk, if you abort it. You may check and see if you have a folder named 'Found" on the drive. Check disk will take anything it considers orphaned and put it in a folder named found. Try showing hidden folders. I will tell you how if you need to know, but I suspect you do.

Nope, there is no FOUND folder. And, it seems that all the data she had on there previously is intact - it's ONLY the stuff I added while it was acting up, that is the problem.

I will leave it on today, all day, and see if it blue screens any more, but as of yesterday, it seemed stable.

Will let you know. Again, thanks for your untiring assistance!
