I came into the office this morning to a real mess; Windows 7 Ultimate will not run from a normal boot with the ethernet cable connected. It runs fine if I boot with the cable removed, it boots fine in all variations of "Safe Mode". Running "Safe Mode with Networking" and "Directory Services Repair Mode" works fine, I can keep the ethernet cable connected and boot and connect to the web.
I would say I have above average computer skills (although in present company I am sure I come across as a n00b); can someone point me in a direction to repair this issue.
Thus far I have tried running recovery, the system restore points are not available.

The BSOD death message I was getting was PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA; I seem to have resolved the issue by removing Kaspersky.
I tried your suggestion, and while logical, it did not solve my specific issue, I do appreciate the feedback. My guess is that during an update, Kaspersky became corrupt, I am installing Avira and will see how things go with that.
