Windows 7 issue -- Blue screened then odd things happened

Q: Windows 7 issue -- Blue screened then odd things happened

I have Windows 7 Ultimate installed on my computer and had it up to date on all of the Windows updates. I also have Windows Vista installed on another drive on the computer.
I was using it earlier and it suddenly blue screened at random. I was just browsing Reddit or something when it happened.
Once it blue screened I couldn't get it to work again. The error code it gave me was 0x000000e for both my Windows 7 install and Vista install (both were working fine before this blue screen).
I got on my laptop and downloaded the system repair and put it on a disc. I ran it on my desktop (the computer having issues) and it repaired the boot issues. However, on the Windows 7 install I can get to the login screen and log in now, but it will spend about a minute or two sitting at the 'Preparing your desktop' message before coming up with a screen with nothing but a teal background and in the bottom right it says this:

Windows 7
Build 7600
This copy of Windows is not genuine

It is a legitimate copy and has worked fine for a year before this happened. The background looks like this minus the taskbar and icons: http://www.guidebookgallery.org/pics...win2000pro.png

The Vista install seems to work fine now though. However, I cannot access the drive that has Windows 7 installed on it from Vista anymore. If I try opening it, it will say 'Access Denied'.
Also, the drive letter for Windows 7 changed after running the repair. It was originally drive letter G but it has been changed to F.

Can anyone help me solve this issue?
I'm thinking what the system repair tool did was replace the winload.exe file.
I can't do anything on the Windows 7 install right now because all it gives me is the teal background with no taskbar and no icons. After looking at task manager it appear it doesn't run any of the startup stuff I had; just the normal things you'd see on a brand new install or maybe in safe mode.

Preferred Solution: Windows 7 issue -- Blue screened then odd things happened

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Windows 7 issue -- Blue screened then odd things happened

interesting... ok lets think now... ok i'm assuming you have some knowleage about deul booting.

few questions, can you log in to windows 7 via safe mode? also was this repair disc for windows 7 or vista? and do you have the windows 7 installation DVD?

I was just using my PC when it disconnected from the internet. Other devices were still connected so I figured the issue must be with my PC, closed my programs and then tried to restart my PC.

This is when it blue screened with a DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE error. Once the blue screen reached 100% it hung for a good five minutes before I decided to try a hard reset and now it's stuck on the loading wheel and won't boot up. I'm scared to try another restart but I'm not sure where to go from here.

Any help is much appreciated

I am trying to sell my Dell XPS L401X (XPS 14) that I bought in December of 2010 but I have encountered a serious problem with it. I loaded the computer from factory settings as it had blue screen and refused to start up without startup repair and dell datasafe backup or w/e that program is called. I loaded it up, installed Google Chrome, cleared my history on IE, downloaded MSE, the latest nvidia drivers and java 7 64 and deleted all those and emptied the recycle bin once done installing those. I shut down the computer to install updates and get a blue screen as soon as it passes the startup screen. Every time I attempt to launch using startup repair it just opens up another window with a black screen and the option of startup repair and normal repair, never actually going to startup repair, just continually refreshing every time I select startup repair. Please help I need a permanent fix ASAP as I don't want my buyer to experience these issues and send it back.

A:Windows 7 on Dell XPS L401X Blue Screened, Startup Repair not loading

Proceed through the steps in Troubleshooting Windows 7 Failure to Boot and see if that resolves the problem.

You may also consider Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 since the system is no longer under warranty anyway. Just make sure you can read the key on the sticker prior to doing those steps.

I have a Dell Inspiron with a Core i5 CPU.

I am running Windows 7 Home - 64 bit.

I have McAfee Anti-Virus Software.

My computer has 2 issues that appeared after a Windows update.

My IE 10 will not start. It flashes a Screen momentarily and shuts down.

Second issue - can not shutdown computer. Restarts when I try to shutdown.

Don't know if issue is Windows update or something else.

Device drivers appear to be OK.

Any suggestions?


A:2 things happened after Windows update 2 on June 10th, 2013

Welcome to Sevenforums,

Maybe first, see to uninstall the IE10 updates kb2838727 & kb2859903 from the Programs & Features => show installed updates.

Try uninstall the flash player (see if it works after), then updating flash player to v 11.7.700.224 to the latest.

You could also run the System Update Readiness Tool

A:Blue Screened

Hi, some reasons for Blue Screens
New hardware - software installed.
Device driver - Video driver - corrupted - faulty.
Faulty Ram - Overheating - Dying hard drive etc.
Let us have some Pc specifications.
Check and post
TSG System Information Utility - found here.
Post the Minidump files
Create a new folder on the desktop and call it dumpfiles [or something similar]

Look in c:\windows\minidump
Copy the last 4 minidump files to that folder.
Close the folder and right click on it and select Send To Compressed [zipped] Folder.
Windows will compress the file and then save the new zipped file in the same location.

Use the 'Manage attachments' in the 'Go Advanced' reply window below to upload that zip file here as an attachment.

I'm new to this but I figured I'd give this a try. This is a repost of my earlier post I did last week. no replies .

I have an Acer Aspire 5110 laptop and recently I've been getting the bluescreen when starting the laptop. Sometimes it pops up after I login, sometimes on the password screen. The bluescreen usually has HSFHWAZL.SYS (i think). After this, windows usually does a disk check. Sometimes it finds nothing, other times it truncates like 15-20 files.

Currently I'm running WindowsXP Media Center Edition.

I downloaded HijackThis and here's the log file.

If I'm missing anything, please let me know. Thanks!

I've been getting the blue screen of death several times a week, if not several times a day, for several months now. It almost always comes when I am surfing the internet, especially--but not particularly--when I'm accessing video sites such as Hulu or MSN Video, although I don't even need to be playing something in such sites--if the window's even up, it will likely give a blue screen somewhere in the next hour. Lately, though, just running a browser can cause it to blues creen.

My blue screen says at the top something to the effect of: driver-not-less-or-equal; I've never been fast enough to catch the specific numbers, but I can try if they're needed.

I've tested this in the latest versions of: IE, FF, Opera, Flock, and Safari and all equally cause a blue screen crash.

I have an Acer E380 8 month old system with:
Vista SP1
AM2 Socket MB (I believe, and don't know the exact model)
Athlon 64 X2 4400+ @ 2.31 GHz
NVIDIA GeForce 6150SE nForce 430 (I now just installed a NVIDIA GeForce 8600 GT and it did not remedy anything)
Realtek High Definition audio
320 GB Western Digital HD
Came with 250W PSU (I put in a 750W PSU to try some upgrades with the new graphics card, but somehow that combination gave more blue screens so I took both of them out)
I have about 6 USBs hooked up drawing various amounts of power and I use a Wacom tablet as my main mouse/input, but the problem started way before that...so don't know if that means anything.

A:I'm getting blue-screened to death

Hi dgal. . .

Welcome... to your first thread in the TSF Vista Support Forum.

I see that you have been a member since last November, but this is your first thread and post. Sorry it had to be under a BSOD watch. Let's see if we can locate the cause.

I need some items and I have a few things for you as well. There is a zip file attached to this post containing a batch file named minidump-msinfo32.bat. Please download it and extract it to your desktop. Right-click on the desktop batch file icon and select Run as Administrator. The black "DOS" command screen will appear and scroll followed by the smaller Vista screen while msinfo32 runs. Give it a few minutes, then go to your documents folder where there should be a new folder named TSF_08-21-08 containing the dump files (with names similar to Mini082008-01.dmp), a text file and the msinfo32 NFO file. Zip the entire folder up and attach to your next post.

In the interim, please check WERCON - Windows Problem Reports and Solutions as it usually does contain information on the system crashes that may prove to be helpful.
START | type wercon.exe into the start search box | right-click on wercon.exe under programs above | run as admin | view Problems to Check & Problem History.

Also check the Device Manager for any red/yellow flags.
START | type dev man into the start search box | right-click on Device Manager up top under programs | run as admin

Please help! I am new to this forum. I tried to follow a tread on this but it got so confussing. Does someone have a step by step reply? Issue is Blue screen "A driver has overrun a stack-based buffer". Its on my teen son's PC (need I say more). System has been down for months got tierd of working on it till now. The begining:
1) System starts and said it had two spywares running at same time. After 4 mins the system would freeze, not giveing much time to do anything
2) I started in safe mode and removed my Nortons since I could not this "other" spyware. After a reboot windows said it removed a few malice files. Forgot the the files for this "other" spyware" but it had a tool bar on IE and ended with (4.1?)
3) System worked fine. However as I tried to install a new antivirus I found that neither of my CD/ DVD drives would work (device manger, would not let me update driver). I even moved the drives to the other IDE controller but got the same thing. After two days I found someone who gave me step by step insrtuctions to remove two reg files. Got the drives to work.
4) Now I have this blue screen message. I have removed one by one each hardware item and I still get the problem.

Please help me! John

About 2 months ago I bought a Hp G70-460US Laptop that I've been running Vista Home Premium on and it was working perfectly until earlier today when I started to get random blue screens of death. At first I thought it was just a random crash from running too many programs, but it started to blue screen ever more frequently. Earlier I restored it back to 2 weeks prior but I was unable to run programs efficiently and it still blue screened, so I backed-up all that was important onto an Ipod and did a complete system restore to the factory settings, which took about an hour, and at which point it blue screened at startup before even getting to the administrator log-in screen. I've now attempted to boot it into safe mode, however it no longer even recognized that windows is even installed and asks for it to be, and when booted regularly, it just shows a black screen. I'm fairly certain it may be a driver issue, however seeing as I can no longer boot the computer to get the blue screen, it's difficult to check what the problem actually is now. I've never had this problem before and I'm not much of a computer wiz, so I'm not sure what I should be doing to fix it. Does anyone have prior knowledge or possibly some insight on how to fix this problem? It would be greatly appreciated. I haven't given much information other than the problem itself, so if some is needed, just let me know. Also I'm new to this forum, so if this thread is in the wrong place, I apologize.

A:Vista Blue Screened

Hello Werty789,
Welcome to Vista Forums!

I think that there was a little glitch that turned big (sounds weird i know).
But since you backed up all of your files thats super. I would suggest you do a clean installation of your version of vista. This way, you can have a fresh start and hopefully your BSOD will be gone. Also, make sure you allow windows to update itself after installation so it downloads and installs all the proper updates.

Let us know how it goes,

The cause of the crash is Norton/Symantec, although this crash looks to be a single one which is handled by Windows.
This means that you have nothing to worry and do not need to do anything

Two nights ago I was playing an online game when all of the sudden for the first time I lost connection. I figured it was an internet issue only to log out of the game and to see my internet was still up and running. I then try to go back into the game ( everquest ) but it would not connect to a server for some reason. Again I thought it was my internet... So i rebooted the computer.
While I was rebooting I noticed that it was taking an awefully long time to reboot....pausing almost a minute or two on each load screen. It normally takes my computer less then 30 seconds to reboot.

Hi, I am running a laptop with nvidia optimus, using an intergrated card and a 310m geforce. I was using my computer as usual, when it blue screened on me, then rebooted. Afterwards, my resolution was messed up, and the computer no longer dectected the 310m! I have tried reinstalling some drivers, but they do not detect the card. I know the card is there, as I have used it previously.

A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer.
The problem seems to be caused by the following file: partmgr.sys


If this is the first time you've seen this stop error screen, restart your computer. If this screen appears again, follow these steps:
Check to make sure any new hardware or software is properly installed. If this is a new installtion, ask your hardware or software manufacturer for any other windows updates you might need.
If this problem continue, disable or remove any newly installed hardware or software. Disable BIOS memory options such as caching or shadowing. If you need to use safe mode to remove or disable components, restart your computer, press F8 to select Advance Startup Options, and then select Safe Mode.

Hi, recently installed a new cpu motherboard and graphics card. Reinstalled windows, and now the machine is crashing occasionally. It crashes anywhere between instant on start up or 40 minutes into browsing. I uploaded the zip file per your BSOD posting instructions.

I've done a little researching on my own and I think it may have to do with the Realtek audio controller conflicting with my nvidia graphics card in some way. Although since the computer is blue screening I'm hoping your diagnoses might help me figure out if that is actually the problem.

For the second time in the last few months We've had a partial network outage that was traced to a blue screened machine. This time, the BSOD referenced storport.sys.  The issue being caused is that the switch gets flooded with unknown traffic and that
goes as far as the uplinked switch that gets taken down.
I can't find anything that stands out in a wireshark trace, but as soon as that machine is unplugged, everything is fixed.  What could possibly be causing this and how can it be prevented?

Hello everyone I'm new to the board and I apologize for not having the time to read through all of the beginning tutorials and scanning to see if this has already been addressed on the site. I've learned more about computers in the last eight hours then I could ever imagine. I have a Lenovo T420 running Windows 7 enterprise service pack two. My computer won't boot up in windows regular mode or safemode. I believe I deleted a registry file and that blue screened my computer. My computer has windows bit locker Drive encryption in which I am an administrator and have the key. I have until tomorrow to get my expense reports submitted for the last three weeks so that I can get reimbursed and my computer picked a doozy of a time to get a virus. Specifically the Mal/Iframe-AH that I thought was quarantined. I believe it is this virus that has: Redirected Google, mirrored other websites, taken over all Internet downloads from Firefox and Internet Explorer, told me Skitch needed an update, and I downloaded a SCARY version of Skitch, and fakes the virus protection scan when I ran it. I went into the registry and deleted a file that basically blue screened my computer. I'm at a point now where I can get to the command prompt however I believe the startup repair from bitlocker is overriding my boot up disk. I did change the boot order from advice from a Lenovo rep over the phone but I still haven't seen the start up menu for the Microsoft, I believe, system s... Read more

Window XP Professional: when starting, interupted by blue screen with error message Fat 32 D:volume (something) 1DOB-3241 verifying files and service and then system checks out OK and starts. Since loading Windows Live and Live security have had very slow response until all of it is loaded (sometimes up to 45 minutes before I can get on Internet Explorer).
I think my D drive is too full--cannot complete defrag since there is only 9% free space on disk. C drive is nearly empty. I think I have to move some of these files to C but I don't know how. Does anyone know if these problems are connected to error message at start-up or are they separate issues? Had broadband service check over weekend and they said its not their problem. I'm not too techy but fast learner if someone has patience to help....Thanks.

A:Blue-screened error @ startup: D: volume service Fat32

To move the files right click on them and select "copy", then make a folder on your C drive and in that folder right click "paste"

Once the files have been moved, you can go back to the D drive and delete them. Don't delete all of the files on D, just the ones you put there.

You should not store any of your files on the D drive, this is most likely a restore partition and should not be used by you.

I was using my computer as usual and after I came back after eating, I saw a completely black screen. I turned my computer off and as it booted back up it blue screened, telling me there was a problem with memory management.
I turned it back off and fully depowered my motherboard, popped my ram in and out, just in case.
I turned it back on and nothing showed up on my monitor. My mouse and keyboard lit up and I got the regular system beeps. I plugged my HDMI cable into my motherboard with the same results. The cable works and the port on my monitor works as well.

Dell Inspiron 1420 - Windows Vista Home Premium - Intel Core 2 Duo CPU [email protected] 1.66GHz - 2.00 GB Ram

Seems like every day since I bought this pc in Feb something has gone wrong. For the first four months I received every blue screen error that is possible. Sometimes two or three times a day. I had been trying to download all of the Windows updates but they kept failing. I then started trying them one at a time and I managed to get them all done. After that it seemed like the blue screens were gone. I was thrilled.

Then I became aware of the SP1 for Vista and it hadn't been applied to my pc when I bought it so I stupidly decided to download it. I did a system restore point before downloading. I started the download and went to bed, when I got up there had been an error with the process. I tried to do the system restore and there was an error with that and I couldn't go to any point beyond the current day.

Now all kinds of things started happening. I couldn’t access my security program – CA Internet Security Suite, it would just freeze and I would have to do a cntrl-alt-del to end it. I couldn't open hyperlinks on web pages, I couldn't open any thing that needed an active X, then I started getting "The pipe state is invalid" errors and couldn't open some programs. The next day that error changed to "The service cannot accept control messages at this time." I have tried using "Run as Administrator" and that doesn’t wo... Read more

Today I got a virus. It crashed my browser, firefox, and it deleted all of my shortcuts, then I got a notification saying Norton blocked the attempt to compromise my computer or something. I tried opening up Norton, but the shortcut stopped working. I tried making a new shortcut, but that wouldn't work either. I tried opening a Norton uninstaller program from their site, but that wouldn't open either, because it said I needed to do something with a set associations panel for the file type. The file type is .exe. I don't really know what I should do right now but I hope that you can help

Also, system restore doesn't work. I set it to a month before, but I still can't open my shortcuts and apparently Microsoft Office doesn't exist anymore and I'm concerned for my computer and if I need to take it to some repair center in best buy cause I don't have the CDs for reinstalling Vista

A:Solved: I got a Virus but only a few things happened

Try this fix: EXEFIX​
Unzip the fix and extract the .REG file to the Desktop. Right-click the .REG file and choose Merge. Note that you need to be an Administrator to apply this fix.

Reboot the computer.

If the fix only opens as a text file, right-click it and select Open With > Choose Program... Then, select the Registry Editor.

If the Registry Editor is not in the list, browse to C:\WINDOWS and select regedit.

(I've attached this pic to help explain what I mean.)

I also can't open a bookmark in a new window

Yesterday I've been informed by ma bank that unauthorized transaction was probably held on my account via credit card. Logged onto my account and found 200 EUR missing. After being into computers world for like 10 years it's not something you'd like to happen. You hear and read about it but don't expect it to happen to yourself... Anyway it did and now I want at least know how could it happen.
I was using avira for a long time but to be honest I didn't fully scan my laptop for a period of time. Yesterday I downloaded Kaspersky Internet Security 2014 (trial) which is "advised" by my bank's support. So, it found stuff like that:
Trojan.Win32.StartPage.cdus (I guess related to web browsers content changing)
Trojan.Win32.Staser.fv (that's the one i am a bit scared of as for now...)
also some little guy named AdWare.Win32.D365.a
And here's my question. Is any of these 3 above able to send my credit cards or bank account details to "third party" people? As far as I'm concerned Staser can.
If not - I guess the main reason of my money lost is that I entered credit card details on some unauthorized website (what to be honest i can't remember eh).
Well, it's too late to "heal" my laptop, I am surely going for total formatting of all HDD and re-installing OS. But if you can give me more details about what I found on it and if it could be the reason - thank you.
with regards!

A:So it happened... Money is gone, found some nasty things on my laptop

Yes, Staser could be the culprit that robbed you.
If you had info for your bank and credit card such a link to the sites and passwords to those sites saved on your comp then
that could be how they got your info to rob you.
Any and all passwords and accounts including such as email have likely been compromised/ stolen and you should change all
using a different computer.
Many take the extra step of using a Linux Live CD or Flash Drive to do financial transactions on. The safest way known today. 
A bit inconvenient but as you found out, obviously worth it.
Keep in mind that Kaspersky may not of found all the malware on your computer. Seldom does one security program do that and
often they all miss....especially if it was recently released into the wild.
Doing a clean install, as you intend, is the best way to be sure you removed all of the malware.

Here's a problem that just started when my battery goes completely dead. Before, when I would plug it back in, I would hit the power button and all would be restored to where it was before.
Now it doesn't - instead, it boots up to Windows but nothing I had before is saved, where before it was.
Can one point out to me what I must to do have the computer do what it did before should the battery go dead. I'm using a Toshiba laptop P200 with Windows Vista Home Premium.

Did you change your power plan? Try resetting to default

Hi all, my son's Dell Optiplex all-in-one blue screened once. It then gave options and my son selected reboot. It would then not boot up at all (power is present as screen will come on in HDMI mode) . Bizarrely, by experimenting we realised that it will boot up ONLY if you go through this process every time:
 - remove both RAM
 - power up (it gives the beep to say memory not found)
 - power off and return one of the memory and power on
 - it briefly powers on and then powers off (we worked out that it does this as recognises it has a change in memory)
 - power off and add the other memory
 - again, briefly powers on but turns off. Power on again and voila all OK and boots Windows
However, if you then power down, it will not power back up unless you go through the above again.
Does anyone have any ideas as I am stumped with this and I need to get it working again for my son's school work. Thank you in advance.

Had an odd thing happen a few days ago and thought I would run it by everyone here to see what you think. I have a windows 7 computer that I do most of my work on or do gaming on.I have windows auto-updates turned off. I was working on something and and I noticed the system was getting very sluggish and then finally unresponsive. So I decided to close everything and restart the system. When it started to shut down, the windows update screen popped up and said it was installing an update. I immediately unplugged the internet and sat and watched it. It shut down and restarted without issue. It then completed the update. I then decided to make sure everything was backed up onto an external HD before I got back online, in case I had been a victim of the win 10 forced update issue. Got everything backed up and then got back online and everything was fine. I ran Malwarebytes to see if maybe it was some kind of infection, but nothing turned up. I checked the windows update option and it had been changed somehow, so I turned it off. I also checked the installed updates and nothing is showing up for that date - 3/28/16.
Question 1
Has anyone experienced something like this?
Question 2
What would explain the auto-update feature being turned on when I had not turned it on?
Question 3
Any idea what happened in this case?
Best Wishes,

Now, for some reason, I cannot get facebook or youtube pages to load properly. Other webpages such at Yahoo and this site work fine, but those 2 do not... and I have no idea why all of a sudden. Things were working fine this afternoon and then all of a sudden they didn't. No graphics or pics will load, and if I click on a bookmarked link to a youtube video, I get the message that the video is unavailable. Any ideas?

I've been playing some games lately and have been noticing my gfx card (GTX 770) getting very hot, 90-95C at times. It's an older card so I figured I would pop it out and change the thermal paste and give it a good cleaning. I've done this more than a dozen times with as many GPUs. Got it all cleaned up and put it back in and no boot. Nothing. VGA LED on. Expletives running through my head as I figured this card was now toast.

Pop it out, throw it in another computer I have, boots and works just fine. So ????. Took the GPU from the second computer and put it in the first one, it boots and works fine. So it's not the ports. Take the 770 back out of the 2nd computer, put it back in the first one, and boom it boots and works fine, temps look good. So ????.

So in the end, I don't really have a problem to solve, I'm just very confused. Why did this happen? Did something reset when I put it in the other computer? lol pretty stressful morning. Sorry for the convoluted story.

Dear GPU owners/buyers,

I was trying to get my GPU RMAd but lost the invoice and got this answer from TGT overclocking support:

"Dear Mr. xxxxx

I am sorry, but without a copy of the original invoice, the warranty is void. I know the experience of losing documents during a move, but the warranty claim requires a proof of purchase.

Another issue about the warranty claim is that TGT ceased operation. The closing is quite recent, I don't know yet what will happen regarding warranty requests."
Please be informed of the situation if you have a TGT GPU or planned to buy one.

not sure if this is the right forum or not.. as i'm a newbie to the forums...

but here's my troubles.

one morning turning on the PC, and Blue Screen ...

A problem has been detected and window has been shut down.....

no changes had been made to the PC - no added hardware or software.

Tried to use SAFE MODE. nothing. it 'hung' on the last driver mup.sys

so i fully researched that ... a few places said it sounds like the power supply.... replaced that.

still nothing.

Found the emergency reinstall disk from Dell. popped that in, tried to use the "repair" function. Once i was able to get to the c:\windows prompt and ran chkdsk

the first time [and i forgot to write down what it told me... but it was something about corrupted or 'unfixable' files. The next time i tried to run chkdsk \f [because one of the 'blue screens' told me to] it said "There is no disk in drive or the file system is not supported."

I am at a loss... i always figured i could fix the problem if i could get to my C drive... but no luck as of yet. I spent 5 hrs today [including two runs to Best Buy for the power supply] and i'm pretty much at my wits end.

Were you running antivirus, and was it uptodate? If so the first thing
I would do is find out the manufacturer of your hdd. Go to there
website and download there diagnostic utility, run it to see if the
harddrive is ok. This is normally on a floppy, and you will have to
create it. Then you will have to enter bios and set your boot order
to floppy first.,then cd, hdd, etc. You can change the order back
once the test is done. If the hdd checks out you can go from there.
I thought dell had proprietary power supplys, did the power supply
you purchased hook up ok, nothing kinda wierd like it didnt want to
fit? If not that is a good thing, and I hope you bought a good power
supply, not a $25.00 piece of junk...The problem you describe can
be alot of different things, say lets take it one step at a time.

Hello, your computer's restrictions to change options on your desktop ect...is some sort of spyware.

First off, download SuperAntiSpyware from link below. I highly recommended this program for removing spyware. Choose the free edition.

Run a full system scan. This may take awhile depending upon the size of your hard drive ect...but let it finish. Remove all threats it finds and then restart your computer. If problem persists, let me know.

Things started to get more strangely from now on. Windows is taking up 2x more time to start up now, my computer has lag, files are taking longer to load and I received 3 blue screens with the same error: KMODE_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED.

Upon searching further I found out this could be because of a virus: Error message: "Stop error code 0x0000001E (KMODE_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED)" in Win32k.sys or a "Stop error code 0xC000021A" (Quote: This behavior can occur if you downloaded the Backdoor.NTHack virus from a remote host into your computer. This virus is initiated by the Dl.bat file in the InetPub\Scripts folder.)

I fully scanned my PC with BitDefender Total Security 2013 and Malwarebytes, deleted registry issues with CCleaner, but no such virus was found.

Ok, so I've been getting the blue screen of death recently. It is the kind that says I need to disable BIOS memory like caching or shadowing. Well I don't know how to do that, so I was trying to look for other options. And I was thinking about just reinstalling Windows altogether. So I had put in the XP boot CD and I booted my computer from the CD and it failed. I'm thinking these two problems are related.

I have a dual boot to Ubuntu and Windows XP. If anyone can help it would be much appreciated.

Yesterday my computer crashed, and flashed a blue screen, i tried entering in safe mode, last good known config, etc, and was unable to get back in with anything, so restarted and used F8 for more options, was finally able to get into the computer using the "debugging mode"
I noticed that i did not have the Windows XP SP 3 installed so tried downloading it, however all i get when trying is that the ATAPI.SYS is in use, i have turned off every application possible, and still receive the same error, I do have Daemon Tools, however it will not allow me to unistall it, when i use unistall, it will go about half way and then stop. I tried updating Daemon thinking that would help, but am unable to do that also because it needs to reboot to finish the install.
I used SuperAntiSpyware blaster, and it found nothing except some mywebsearch issues, i used the Windows malware detector, and it found nothing, i used the malwarebytes tool and it did find some things and removed or quaranteed (will paste the log) I tried using "unlocker" and went to the drivers to try to change the name of the ATAPI driver, but it states it can not because it is in use, i opened the task manager and shut down all applications that i could find that was not system.
