This is my first thread on Seven Forums so bear with me here.
Earlier this morning i booted my PC and was presented with a BSOD when trying to run 3ds Max. Now i get the BSOD right after the "Starting Windows" splash appears. I've tried every solution i was able to find on the forums with no luck. So i've decided to reinstall Windows 7.
I'm getting close to a project deadline and i would lose significant progress if i did a clean install because i didn't manage to backup my last 5 days of work. So my question to you is this: Since it's possible that the BSOD was caused by a virus, can i do a normal install of windows, backup my files and then do a clean install? Is it safe?
I'm sorry if this is a stupid question and thanks for taking your time to read/reply.
