I appear to be getting a BSOD only when I load Safemode. I need to use safemode as I need to run a tool to remove a worm. Yes, a HDD worm. Only problem is, it's restricting me from loading into safemode, by somehow corrupting MUP.sys.
I can happily get into Normal windows with no problems, only problems I do face, is the automatic shutdown of applications, which is what the worm/virus is doing. I heard you can somehow replace MUP.sys? So it isn't corrupted, but what I want to know Is why a BSOD only on Safemode.
I've tried using BlueScreenView because Being a computer technician I keep up to date with software that could help me when fixing PCs. Only problem is, windows hasn't started for it to create a Minidump file. So I am unable to check the parameters of the Bluescreen and identify the problem.
If you need any other information, please let me know
