Windows 7: BSOD on Boot ntoskrnl.exe+7f1c0 After Using Ubuntu Live USB

BSOD on Boot ntoskrnl.exe+7f1c0 After Using Ubuntu Live USB

I've been using ubuntu on a Live USB to compile some of my C homework. I disabled wireless within ubuntu. When I restarted into Windows I received an error about a hardware switch being turned off and was unable to use fn + f10 to turn it back on. I restarted my pc and went into the live usb again. When I went back into windows the wireless was available, but my computer BSOD's almost immediately after logging in.

I am able to boot into SafeMode with networking, so I'm not sure if the wireless if the actual issue or a related event at all.

I have run chkdsk /r, memcheck, and have rolled back and then reinstalled the new build of my graphics driver. In BlueScreenView I see ntoskrnl.exe and PSHED.dll listed as the top two events, and other threads said that PSHED.dll was graphics related, but that did not ultimately solve the issue.

I've attacked the MiniDump files. I have too much ram for a full dump. I've also attached the SF Results.

Thanks for any help that you may be able to offer!

Welcome aboard.

Here is your actual problem:
*                                                                             *
*                        Bugcheck Analysis                                    *
*                                                                             *

Something has gone badly wrong with the registry.  If a kernel debugger
is available, get a stack trace. It can also indicate that the registry got
an I/O error while trying to read one of its files, so it can be caused by
hardware problems or filesystem corruption.
It may occur due to a failure in a refresh operation, which is used only
in by the security system, and then only when resource limits are encountered.
Arg1: 0000000000000001, (reserved)
Arg2: fffff8a000024370, (reserved)
Arg3: 0000000001643000, depends on where Windows bugchecked, may be pointer to hive
Arg4: 0000000000000374, depends on where Windows bugchecked, may be return code of
    HvCheckHive if the hive is corrupt.
In such a situation, you first boot into Advanced Boot Options, choose "last known good configuration" and hit enter, see if it boots or not.

In a deeper analysis of your dump, it indicates Kaspersky :
fffff880`08f4e838  fffff880`0471a7bfUnable to load image \SystemRoot\system32\DRIVERS\klif.sys, Win32 error 0n2
*** WARNING: Unable to verify timestamp for klif.sys
*** ERROR: Module load completed but symbols could not be loaded for klif.sys
When we see an Antivirus is there behind the crashes, we suggest to uninstall it and use Microsoft Security Essentials - Free Antivirus for Windows.

But, as the Registry is already corrupted, uninstalling Kaspersky will not bring it back to normal, it just will protect the system from getting more corrupt.

If both of those options fail, do SFC /SCANNOW : Run in Command Prompt at Boot

If it also failed, do a Clean Install Windows 7

Let us know the results.

EDIT: Uninstall the following programs:
  • Catalyst Control Center
  • DAEMON Tools Lite
  • Defraggler
  • MSI Afterburner
Free up the startup. (you have 30 programs in startup)

  1. Click on the Start button
  2. Type “msconfig (without quotes), click the resulting link. It will open the System Configuration window.
  3. Select the “Startup” tab.
  4. Deselect all items other than the antivirus.
  5. Apply > OK
  6. Accept the restart.

I was unable to boot into "Advanced Boot Options," but in trying to do so, I found a startup repair utility. My computer seems to be working now. I've restarted a few times without error.
