Greetings, recently i was infected by annoying forms of malware that masquerades as an anti-virus and holds your PC hostage,OpenCloud Security, which i removed by booting up in safe mode and running malwarebytes, no problem, BUT, now every time i try to boot my computer normally, i'm met with the dreaded BSOD and the above message mentioned in the title. i can't even make it won't even make it to the desktop, as soon as it's done loading, instant blue screen! Runs in safe mode just fine, but i'm clueless as to what even the cause is, and every time i go to check the minidump folder, it's empty. i've heard at least 100 different possible causes from rootkits to faulty RAM, but i'm not sure what is the primary cause. Any and all advice is welcome. If you would like any further details, i'll be more than happy to describe in detail. Thanks in advance!

Hi raptorjesus Posted Image

Since your computer had an infection the next logical step is to do a much more thorough check of the System by looking at additional logs. Running Malwarebytes in the Safemode is fine but best to run it in regular mode. Some of the malware files may not have been running in Safemode and Malwarebytes didn't see them. Additional Malware may have also been installed (Common with those types of infections you had) that Malwarebytes does not even see or detect. I know you can't run it in regular mode. I strongly suggest you follow the instructions in the link provided below.
