I was playing WoW when I suddenly got bored. I decided to get Audiosurf, because I had played the demo earlier in the week. But the thing is that I didn't want to play the demo, I wanted the full version. I also didn't want to use a torrent because those usually take awhile.
I figured this would have been dangerous work so I decided to get an anti-virus program. I am usually safe and never had problems with viruses so I got Antivira, a program I used back along time ago on an older computer.
Well, I found a cracked version of Audiosurf and when I downloaded it, behold, 2 viruses were detected. I sent them to the quarantine and deleted them from there. I then decided to not risk it anymore and just download the demo and get the full version later. I decided to go the safest way to get it by using Stream's website. My brother had used stream for CS:S on his computer so I trusted it.
I had to install stream, and then start downloading Audiosurf. I still had WoW running the whole time, just minimized. After it started downloading I decided to get on WoW and just entertain myelf while the download was going.
After about 5 minutes I alt-tabbed to check the download. It was at 80% so I decided to go back to WoW. After another 2 minutes, I alt-tabbed. THe sound of WoW, instead of muting, froze and so had my screen for about 3 seconds before it went black, then blue, to the BSOD.
I figured nothing of it, thinking it must have just overloaded with Stream+download+WoW. Now, everytime I start my computer in normal or safe mode, about 6 seconds after I log in, the BSOD happens.
The only way I can get on my computer is Safe Mode with Command Prompt and I used ATF Cleaner and I still get a problem.
I am not sure what the first BSOD said but this is what the latter ones stated.
*** STOP: 0x0000008E (0xC0000005, 0x8E125B3A, 0x9CDFB764, 0x00000000)
I will also note that I restarted in Safe Mode 2 times and Normal Mode 5 times. The third time I ran it in Normal Mode Antivira popped up with a virus detection but I couldn't get a chance to see what it said before the BSOD appeared.
Is there anyway I can fix this in Safe Mode with Command Prompt? I am not very well versed with these things or cmd for that matter nor do I know if I can connect to the internet while in Safe Mode. If I can't fix it, can I give it to a repair/service store to fix it? If I have to give it to them, is there any info I can provide to them (besides what is in this post) that will speed up there process? Any and all help is appreciated.
