Default BSOD cannot boot in regular or safe mode

The BSOD states:
A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer.
Tech Info:
STOP: 0x0000007B (0xF789E524, 0xC0000034, 0x00000000, 0x00000000)

I had a number of infections that spybot and malwaybytes found and fixed, McAfee didn't find anything. I kept looking around for some of my same issues that still persisted, all files hidden, administrator tools empty, cannot run a system restore. I came across your forum that referenced one of my issues and I downloaded combofix, ran it and while it was running the BSOD came up. I tried to reboot in safe mode but still receive BSOD.

At this moment I am runnig ckdsk /r from the recovery console.

I orginally posted in malware forum but I think I need to resolve the boot issue before I can address any malware issues, is that correct?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

OS:XP

If the chkdsk doesn't help which it might.

7B is often associated with SATA drivers. If you can find your SATA configuration in BIOS, it might be worth a try to set it to ATA or IDE emulation.

If you give the model of computer or motherboard we might be able to figure out where the setting would be in BIOS. Usually it is under Drives or something like that.

I'm not sure that the setting switch on a running OS will help but it couldn't hurt to give it a quick try.

0x7B is a common post-partial malware cleanup problem, for instance: the entry point for the malware is still there, say shell='infected system file', that file has been deleted during a cleanup but it's called at boot = BSOD.

Some generic drivers that may be affected that are vital to Windows are disk, classpnp, ftdisk, partmgr, and FAT or NTFS; there will be others specific to your hardware, esp. SATA and newer tech. Running SFC or a Windows Repair might help, as might multiple uses of 'Last Known Good' to reload old Registry hives prior to infection.

If you can access the drive from anther computer or boot disk, you may be able to find the logs from the malware programs which are likely to point out the infected file(s) that need to be reinstated from backups.

Default Re: BSOD cannot boot in regular or safe mode

Would you recommend running ckddsk /f prior to changing BIOS? I was at a screen where I ran a diagnostic on the memory and there was an opiton for BSOD. In both instaces the test for SATA confidence test was skipped, however, at the conclusion of each test the report was no problems. I don't know if this is important.

I believe I know where to find the SATA settings, it was on the screen prior to getting to the above mentioned tests.

Default Re: BSOD cannot boot in regular or safe mode

satrow, I have attempted a couple of times "Last Known Good" and I kept receiving the BSOD. The only malware progrma logs that would have been generated priort to the BSOD would be malware bytes. I am working off of a laptop, my desk top is down, so I think I could access the but I don't know how to access the drive of the down computer.

Regarding running SFC or Windows repair, if those are programs, I don't know how to run them since I can't get the computer to boot up. The only thing I have access to is Windows Recovery Console

If you have done chkdsk /r then no need to do chkdsk /f. The /f is included in the more extensive /r scan.

Changing the SATA setting won't change anything on the XP drive so if it doesn't help just change it back.

Edit: See if Satrow can help you more thoroughly. The SATA change was my only suggestion to see if it can jump start you into Windows for further troubleshooting. If it doesn't work then satrow may have better options.

Default Re: BSOD cannot boot in regular or safe mode

vkquwexg shouldn't be there, however, it may be a temporary driver used by ComboFix. Volsnap and the rest you listed are legit.

Since you say the PC BSOD'd while it was running ComboFix, let's try to disable this driver to see if it helps at all.

Try this command while in the recovery console and press ENTER afterwards:
  • disable vkquwexg
Then type exit to attempt to reboot normally.

Response:
The resgistry entry for th vkquwexg service was found. The service currently has start_type SERVICE_BOOT_START.

The new start_type for the service has been set to SERVICE_DISABLED.

Attempted normal re-boot, result was BSOD. Attempted re-boot in safe mode, result was BSOD.

I would try these commands next:
  • fixmbr (warning appears, press Y for yes)
  • fixboot (are you sure? Y for yes)
  • exit

Same result, BSOD in normal and safe mode.
chasling over in malware forum, which is where I originally started, suggested:

I suggest that you try following the procedure in the below link to see if fixing your MBR helps:
