W7 won't boot, missing aswRvrt.sys [Solved]

For the last few days I've been on a new PC build. I replaced my motherboard and PSU but otherwise everything else is the same as it's been for awhile. Recently the computer BSOD giving a 0x00000124 and then refused to boot, immediately crashing each time I got beyond the Windows safemode/regular selection. After running startup repair a few times I could start to boot but it always gets to aswRvrt.sys and immediately goes to a black screen with:

File: \Windows\System32\Drivers\aswRvrt.sys
Status: 0xc0000098
Info: Windows failed to load because a critical system driver is missing, or corrupt.

I've seen some people online suggest that similar problems were malware related so I figured I'd ask here. In the past I had a power failure on my old PSU that caused random corruption so there are probably a number of leftover corrupted files related to random programs installed. I was able to get Windows fully working afterwards though and was just left with a few files here and there screwed up. Not sure if it's relevant to this problem but I imagined it might give some context to the FRST log. That said, it almost seems like the log is a list of all the services and programs running at the time of the BSOD. There's that much overlap with what I -know- was running.

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

It worked, thanks! A ton of programs give errors on startup so there's been some corruption again but that's a hardware problem I suppose. Surprised it happened even after switching motherboards and PSUs.

I would suggest you run chkdsk /r next to clear any bad sectors and file corruptions on the disc.

Once you have done that let me know if there are any further problems
