Windows 7: mfehidk.sys BSOD

mfehidk.sys BSOD

Hello,
Earlier today I was playing Counter Strike:Source when suddenly all my programs crashed and my PC restarts. I then got a BSOD telling me that that .sys file was the cause. After some research I have discovers that that file has down with McAfee, I do have McAfee installed so that's not a problem. However a problem is that I try to restart and go in to safe mode (networking, command prompt etc) and the BIOS screen loads up then the BSOD shows up again so I'm unable to prevent it from running. Along with the mfehidk.sys I also have the parameters (i think they are called that) 0x0000007E (0xC0000005, 0x83C71400, 0x80399914, 0x80399610)
I'm running Windows Vista Home Premium x33. The last change I believe was an automatic update by Steam for Garry's Mod
Thank you for your time and I hope you can help me

McAfee is a frequent cause of BSOD's. I would remove and replace it (using the un-install tool) with Microsoft Security Essentials AT LEAST TO TEST!

Im sorry. You can or cant boot in safe mode with networking?

Can you boot normally?

Do you have the win 7 dvd from which to do a repair install?

OEM disc? If it is vista you cant use it to repair a win 7 OS.

If you cant boot in safe mode, and you cant boot normally you are going to need something to boot from so we can try to fix the issue.

How did you upgrade to win 7? with what serial number?

I'm not using Seven, using Vista. But the changes between the 2 OS' aren't major unlike XP to Vista. Can you still help me?

My mistake. Usually I look at the system specs but this time I didnt.

You might want to check in at our sister site (Vista Forums) where there are many who are more familiar with Vista.

Let us know if you dont get help there.
