I didn't realize registry programs were harmful, I will discontinue their use immediately!
I scanned with malwarebytes and it found 3 infections, which i removed.
Since I've begun scanning and cleaning up I've been able to install Windows Live Essentials and a new version of AntiVir, which i hope is a good sign.
When i try and run the command "sfc /scannow" in the Elevated Command Prompt as an Administrator, it now proceeds to try to run, only to display the message: "Windows Resource Protection could not perform the requested operation"
I accidentally closed the .txt file that came up after i did the BSoD scan, so i have to do another one
