My laptop now BSOD's after boot (i click my name to log in, then after about 30 seconds, it BSOD's with the error IRQL_IS_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL).
I'm sure i've got a virus causing this, AVAST blocked an attempted connection to an ip, i think it was 199.80.xx.xx (cant remember) from the process svchost.exe. as soon as I tried googling the ip (got as far as 199.8) windows BSOD'd, and now after every restart the error occurs.
I've just run a full scan of comp from safe mode, no luck, it picked of a couple of trojans but didn't fix my problem.
I cant install HJT either as the installer doesn't work from safe mode, what can i do?!
All help welcome and appreciated!
Also, have noticed my Physical memory seems to be in very high useage all the time, about 30%, sometimes up to 90%.

EDIT: THIS HAS TAKEN A TURN FOR THE WORSE!!!! I installed Hitman which someone suggested to me and it found a Bootkit (said windows was referencing a hidden driver which was a bootkit), and it also found tdss rootkit. IT removed the rootkit fine and wanted to restart to remove the Bootkit, I let it restart and now the comp is f*cked.
When I turn it on the Windows loading bar comes up, then cuts to a BSOD, here's the Error Codes:
0x00000007B (0x86D86B58, 0xC000000D, 0x00000000, 0x00000000)
