Windows 7: Booting hangs infinitely at "windows loading", caused by driver?

Booting hangs infinitely at "windows loading", caused by driver?

Hello,

To start, I've spent two days scouring the internet for help with this and none of the threads have produced any working results. Only once before has a software issue stumped me, so I'm at my wit's end here .

Computer Stats: 2009 Macbook Pro running Windows 7 Ultimate x32 via boot camp, all drivers up to date as of last night, no non-factory parts or tampering with any system files.

Issue: Around a month ago, I noticed my laptop freeze up whenever I left it unattended for more than half an hour. Sometimes it would lag for 30 seconds or so and then be fine, sometimes I would have to reboot entirely. This happened again two days ago and upon rebooting it became stuck during the animation at the "windows loading" screen. I restarted and used F8 to pull up the advanced boot menu, chose "system repair", and it went through two loading screens before presenting a black screen of death that never seems to change. Booting in safe mode works, which I've used to scour the internet for fixes and ways to get incredibly drunk.

Attempted Fixes: A full system virus scan (duration: 13 hours) with Kaspersky, Malware Bytes, and Panda. Nothing was returned save a few false-positives from torrents (only trusted trackers, nothing dodgy file-wise). Used the "repair my computer" option at F8'd start-up multiple times to no avail. Used "sfc/scannow" twice, which downloaded some windows updates but didn't fix anything. Yelled really loudly at computer and raised my hand as if to smack it, intimidating it into submission but not fixing core issue.

Here is the result of my bootlog, but before that I'll note that it hangs on "Loaded driver \SystemRoot\system32\DRIVERS\CLASSPNP.SYS" for about thirty seconds when loading in safe mode. I thought that might have been the root and downloaded another copy of classpnp.sys, but again it didn't change anything:

It loops this maybe 50 times, then goes through this:

I have installed the latest bootcamp updates and checking for new drivers using the device manager doesn't seem to return anything, so I can't figure out what's wrong. What is causing my laptop to rebel against its master and why do my threats have no effect on its morale?

Cheers,
Nico

edit: I made a system recovery disk and attempted to use both its automatic fix feature and its "detect memory problems" feature. Both came back completely fine. Nothing has changed.

edit: Startup Repair has verified that the root cause is a driver. However, I've no idea which one. Surely that's contained somewhere in the bootlog.
