Windows 7: BSOD after win 7 updates

22 Oct 2018   #1

Windows 7 Professional 64 bit
BSOD after win 7 updates

Hi there,
I have been getting a Blue Screen for about 2 weeks when booting into Win 7 desktop screen.
It takes a long time showing "Starting Windows" about 5 min before showing the Blue Screen of Death.

I have been using the Advanced Boot Option by using the F8 key.
The only option that get me into Windows 7 is the
Disable Driver Signature Enforcement

Operating system Windows 7 Professional 64 bit
Is there anything you know of that I could try to fix the problem? Would really appreciate your advice.
Best Holli

Hi Hollikdh,

Welcome to SevenForums!

Run Startup Repair

Startup Repair will try to repair computers that are unbootable because of the following reasons:
  • Registry corruption
  • Missing or damaged system and driver files
  • Disk metadata corruption (MBR, partition table, and boot sector)
  • File system metadata corruption
  • Installation of problematic or incompatible drivers
  • Installation of incompatible Windows service packs and patches
  • Corrupt boot configuration data
  • Bad memory and hard disk hardware (detection only)

BSOD after win 7 updates

Thank you Snick for you tip.
I did Run Startup Repair 4 or 5 times without fixing the BSOD problem.
The only way to get into my Windows 7 is by using the "Disable Driver Signature Enforcement"
Is it possible to load new drivers?
Perhaps there are other options? I'd really appreciate any further advice you may have.
Many thanks

Hi Hollikdh,

While going over your logs, I noticed entries related to piracy.
I would like to ask you to get rid of everything piracy related on your system, I am not saying your operating system is pirated, only that you have software installed that is pirated.

Why is pirated software a problem?
  • Piracy is against the policy of this forum, and against my own policy
  • It is unknown what could've come with it, such programs often have a way of letting other software come into your system and who knows what they'll do.
  • Since it is unknown what could've come with such programs it is unknown what the behavior of your system will be and any potential solutions may, as a result, backfire and make your system's stability worse.

Please remove everything piracy related on your system so we can start troubleshooting your system.
Please consider this as a warning, I may refrain from providing support if I see piracy related entries in new logs.

@Snick, I did not get any notification.

MSE updates flagged in Win 7 updates but not XP Mode updates
I find it odd that when I do a Windows Update in Windows 7, the Microsoft Security Essentials (MSE) updates are also found. But if I do a Windows Update in XP Mode, the MSE updates are not found. I don't suppose this is controllable? I'd like the Windows Update to find MSE updates.
