Hello maulingpastry....

Have you tried a System Restore from Safe Mode? Restoring to a date before you downloaded the codecs might get you running long enough to pay a visit to our Malware Forum where they can help you find all the nasties you've invited in.

While in Safe Mode, you might also disable the automatic restart so the BSOD will stay on the screen which will allow you to get any error codes or file names that are causing the fault. To do this, right click on My Computer and choose "Properties". In the Properties window, click on the "Advanced" tab, then in the "Startup and Recovery" section, click on the "Settings" button. In the window that opens, remove the tick from the box next to "Automatically Restart" and apply the change.

Let me know what you find in Device Manager.

You can remove Service Packs that were installed through Windows Update from "Add or Remove Programs". You' have to have the box next to "Show Updates" checked for the updates to show in the list.

Would that help you run the recovery?
