Windows 7: BSOD after each start

BSOD after each start

Hello


I was playing a flash game which was beginning to lag heavily. Then the computer crashed. Since then, I get a BOSD every time i try to do something after startup (like for example starting the resource monitor. This gets me a crash everytime.). I can start firefox but after one minute or so, it will crash. I have had something like 12 BSODs now, after so many reboots.

I managed to create the dump files in safe mode, and now i can even post here, but safe mode is not 100% free of BSODs either

What I did:
- ran the memory diagnostic tool from booting the windows seven DVD. I didn't see the results though...
- tried to do a system restore in safe mode but I had a BSOD in the middle of it. The it said at the next reboot the system restore failed. Now at each reboot the computer says the system restore was effective. I seriously doubt it.
- ran the sf diag tool
- unable to get a perfmon report (is this because of safe mode?)


Specs:
Windows 7 pro 32 bit
Downloaded from MSDNAA (would thqt be OEM or retail?!)
This OS install is 6 months old. The computer I bought used from a friend, must be 5 years old, is in very good condition. Hard drive was changed with the new OS, it's 6 months old.



Any hints on what is causing this? I have not installed any new hardware or drivers recently. Memerror? Virus?

Thank you very much.

ps: ran for 25 minutes in safe mode now, that's a record tonight.

edit:
perfmon error message:
An error occured while attempting to generate the report. The system cannot find the path specified.

Edit▓: i also get a BSOD a shutdown, i now realize.

Thank you. I will probably have to wait until the weekend before I can do these.

One question: do you really advise trying to install SP1 before I do anything else? I'm worried I'll probably get a Blue Screen in the middle of the installation. What would be best: install sp1 in safe mode with networking enabled, or burning an iso of it from my laptop?

I wouldn't worry about it, personally. You should be able to install it normally, and if it fails, try again.

Good luck!

A friend looked at this thread and wondered if your problems may be caused by a rootkit. Try running Malwarebytes in Safe Mode. It most likely won't cure whatever problems you're having (though there's a chance), but if it shows infections, it may confirm our suspicions.

I can't install SP1. When the installation process needs to restart, a BSOD occurs when shutting down (as it always does). Then the system reverts the changes with the next start.

I use Malwarebytes regularly, I'll do a scan right away.

Run Malwarebytes again, this time having it clean everything it finds. Please post the resulting log here, and we'll go from there.

There seems to be no automatic cleaning in Malwarebytes. I quarantined and deleted the threats after the last scan.

New scan is clean: (I added my thumb drive in the mix)
