So there I was, minding my own business on Facebook, when the BSOD popped up. I haven't downloaded anything recently, been anywhere shady, or changed any major settings. I tried to restart it in regular mode, but got the BSOD again. Under a friend's instructions, I used MalwareBytes to isolate about 18 infected files, and then promptly deleted those. I usually use Symantic Anti-Virus, but I think the program was outdated and let something slip by. I've downloaded a new version, which uses Windows Installer to install, and which, of course, I can't access in Safe Mode, which is the only mode that will let me operate without the BSOD popping up.
If anyone has any ideas, I'd really appreciate the help. It's finals week at college, and I desperately need my computer to finish typing up my creative writing portfolio. I'm one of those girls who knows nothing whatsoever about computer repair - so, any thoughts?
EDIT: Don't know if this'll help, but the STOP info is: 0x0000007E (0xC0000005, 0xB35B2976, 0x8C957A20, 0x8C95771C)
