I’ve been getting BSOD messages for about a week, and when I reboot I have a list of problems come up I hit the reset button a few times and machine will boot to normal desktop. But the BSOD’s will start again or other errors. Safe mode does the same thing.

Some of the error messages are:
PFN_list_corrup
Driver_IRQL_Not_Less_or_equal
Error about Win32k.sys and lsass.exe
And this one: windows could not start because the following file was missing or corrupt
\windows\system32\config\system

All the errors happened at different times some during bootup, others while system was up running well. My browser and MS word closes by itself sometimes too.
This is how my problem started, I got a virus, I formatted harddrive try to reinstall windows but couldn’t kept getting error, so I installed linux then reinstalled windows and it worked. After a day or two errors started within windows. Just recently the errs have gotten worse. I don’t have antivirus software and no new devices. Switched settings to do a kernel dump but cant understand it when I opend file in WinDbg. I am very greatful for any help. Thank you for reading.

Hi, I just ran Windows Memory Diagnostic, and the physical memory failed several tests and passed a few. I have non ECC memory so I think the memory is corrupt, from some [bleep] virus. Is it possible for virus etc. to corrupt memory?
Thanks for you help.
