Is there any indication of malware being present on the system? (You did post in the Am I Infected? forum, so I am guessing that you think malware may be responsible for preventing the update from SP2 to SP3.)

How are you attempting to update the system from SP2 to SP3?

What exactly are you doing when the system fails with a BSOD (blue screen of death) STOP error of 0x7E?

Please download BlueScreenView (in zip file)
Extract the contents of bluescreenview.zip and then double-click on the BlueScreenView.exe file, and click on Run, to run the program. (No installation is required.)
When scanning is done (please be patient), go ...
  • Edit > Select All
  • File > Save Selected Items, and save the report to your Desktop as BSOD.txt.
Close the BlueScreenView window.
Open BSOD.txt using Notepad and go ...
  • Edit > Select All
  • Edit > Copy, and then paste the entire contents of the text file into your next reply.
