Hi all. I annoyingly got a virus a couple of days ago and immediately tried to go into safe mode to get rid of it but it only goes for a few seconds then goes to the BSOD with the message about 'your computer has been shut down to prevent further damage and to chkdsk/f to check for hard drive corruption then restart' with the error message:

0x0000007b (0xb84bf524,0xC0000034,0x00000000,0x00000000)

I can still run my computer in normal mode but I cant tell what sort of virus/spyware etc I have because Malwarebytes and Spybot donít find anything new now, but I know its still there because of a message flash up at the start sometimes telling me my firewall is off. Mostly the computer runs ok with the normal amount of processes and the CPU between 1-4%. This is all made a bit more difficult because my DVD drive doesnít read DVDs anymore and I canít find my original windows disc. I would really appreciate any help or advice.

Your stop error looks like it resulted from your infection.

I suggest taking a look at the Malware and Spyware Cleaning Guide. This will help you disinfect the majority of malicious software from your system. If that doesn't solve your problem, post a new thread in the Removal Help for Virus, Malware, Rootkit, Search Redirect Forum.

If you are still having problems after being given a clean bill of health from the malware expert, then please return to this thread and we will pursue other options to help you solve your current problem(s).
