Last night while doing job search on well know job site, I get the window security pop up saying virus detected. As I try to run my software (sorry can't even remember which it is) I continually loop to an internet page saying your windows security is expired, buy this anti-virus immediately. It looked likely to be a legit page, but I was on edge.

Today, I use my other PC to investigate any similar issues on this site. Found one, but the poster never responded to their help. So I follow the suggestions today and run the OTS and Rogue Killer and have their reports all ready to start a post here and see if I can get some help. Not sure why, but I restarted the computer now and all I get is the BSOD. I will gladly post the txt files from what I ran if anyone thinks they can help. I have tried safemode on the reboot still nothing.

Could you post the logs please - When you say that safe mode does not work have you tried the Last Known Good entry ?
