For a faster method without regard to whether it is 32bit or 64bit and no need to install you can download the VIPRE Rescue Program and watch as it sweeps the present copy of Windows for any bugs if any are to be found that is.

Once downloaded you simply doubleclick on the download itself(exe form) and watch as it creates a new temp folder to run out of which can be deleted later. That will find far more then Windows Defender in less time. It also gets Windows back running again if it gets trashed by a malware for the most part.

and not any where as thorough.
and also not an offline, consequently, capable of missing some very serious malware.

I've already seen what the VRP can do with a machine where the user was locked out of Windows totally by a bogus admin account not just a system file error created by the malware. A desktop shortcut was created to the download once copied over to the drive by live boot from a usb data recovery stick made up while booted in Safe Mode.

Once the normal restart was seen and the desktop arrived but no way to do anything but click on the shortcut the malware was promptly removed returing Windows to the user! That was seen on a system where you knew a malware was present.

For a general sweep a better option for free would be the updated MS Security Essentials which has been improved for the next version of Windows soon to arrive. The alternative as long you can boot into Windows and install programs there would be the trial download for the VIPRE Internet Security 2012 which will find bugs hidden in archives every other programs seems to miss.

Once you provide an email address the trial key sent out unlocks the full program for the trial period. Presently that's one of the best av/malware remover programs on the market.

The thing farhaj needs the most however is to replace the spsys.sys file itself if that has been lost or corrupted in some way. Since that is still a driver file of a sort despite the location one reference on how to go about is seen at How To: Replace/Delete Protected DLL Files In Windows 7 & Vista

You evidently have some misconceptions re WDO. Suggest you use WDO once to see that lock out is not relevant.

Of course not! It was a much more involved malware that was removed.

But so far no confirmation of any malware has been shown either. It may just what it is a corrupted or missing system file needing replacement.

The one question not asked so far is whether or not farhaj has installed something new lately that could also explain the error suddenly appearing.

Just a though on how the problem started. From the OP's #7 post.

I was doing Itunes and then uniNstalled it.. It ws not picking my iphone... and then in some thread it was written to change some registry settings which I did and after the restart the BLUE SCREEN WOULD APPEAR And restart again and then I made it run into best possible settings...which is right now..
------------------------
Installing a few Apple programs on Windows 7 and when they didn't work the OP changed Windows 7 registry.

farhaj so you don't get confused just use WDO as suggested by Karl.

I told earlier that i updated my itunes for the new version. After the new version was installed
It did not detect the iphone then; so i was constantly making changes to itunes and its related softwares so that it could detect the phone.. I did it as per according to the problems menioned in the help files and forum threads..

As i was doing this ; one place was written to make changes in the registry file which i did and after that when laptop was restarted the blue screen appeared and the computer constantly went into recovery mode wothout curing te problem and starting the windows.. After which i started the computer in the best known configuration settings
Which it started but the dialog boxes has remained since then...


And regarding the spys.sys file i think that is resolved because the latest sfcdetails.txt file i posted above does not show that as corrupited (please check the file in the above posts) the other problem r
