Blue Screen Of Death STOP Error: 0xc0000007B
This occured right after I ran a Kaspersky bootable Rescue Disc to kill the virus that disguises itself as "Antivirus Plus." It could either be a boot sector virus that curropted my boot or a hardware malfunction as I had my synthesizer (which is routed to my soundcard) on at the time. Yes, my synth has caused me headaches in the past.
Things I Already Tried:
1. CHKDSK /r -- Took too long, eventually just froze.
2. BOOTCFG /rebuild -- Scanned for other boot files and eventually read "out of system memory."
3. Replaced NTDLR and NTDETECT just to be safe.
4. Loaded up UBCD4Win and cleaned Registry of junk files.
5. Through UBCD4Win I also ran the latest update of McCaffee's Stinger anti-virus application and terminated whatever virus it found.
6. Tried to restore the system by using back-ups of System, Software, Sam, Security and Default files.
7. FIXBOOT -- Said it fixed the boot but made no difference.
8. FIXMBR -- Wrote new master boot record but that didn't change anything.
9. Using UBCD4Win I ran Ace Utilities and deleted all junk files (Temps and dumps to unclog the clotting stored on my PC).
10. Deleted all traces I could find of Antivirus Plus.
11. Replaced BOOT.ini with a fresh copy.
12. Tried Safe Mode and Last Known Good Configuration but couldn't access either of them.
13. Unplugged all hardware, USB, cords, powercords, flash and memory card drives but that didn't work. I even took out my 3GB RAM chips and put them back in.
14. Took out PCI soundcard completely and uninstalled it's drivers in UBCD4Win but to no success.
15. Ran MemTest, but the memory test found no problems.
I know all my data is intact because I can see and access it using UBCD4Win. The day of the fatal crash I had installed BitDefender 2010 Internet Security. I have never before used defrag, however, and CHKDSK could not finish. The current solution I am trying is using Spinrite to fix the problem. Is using Spinrite just as good as defragmenting and using CHKDSK to find and fix errors? If so, I have been running Spinrite for the past 10 hours, I have 4 more hours to go (Spinrite estimates it will take 14 hours to finish it's job). Yet Spinrite so far hasn't found any defected sectors, is this normal?
I'd appreciate any help. As you can see I've done a lot of researching and tried a few methods before asking for help. Thank you for reading, I'd appreciate any help or advice.
