BSOD on trying to add printer

Hi, guys. This evening I was trying to add my printer as a scanner as well, and when I attempted to do that, my computer when nuts on me, and now it will not start normally, and will only start in Safe Mode without networking. I have looked through the forum and found a similar incident to mine, but I can't apply the fix to my computer. I am going to supply the 'minidump' file like the case I looked at earlier. If you need more info, just ask.

Have you attempted to use System Restore to restore to before yesterday?

Start your computer and get into the Advanced Boot Options screen. Select Repair Your Computer. Use the System Recovery Options to follow System Restore OPTION TWO. Choose a restore point from before the problem began and post back whether this resolves the problem.
