I ran disk defrag last night and awoke this morning to find that my screen was black with the words : ZKDEW is Compressed. press Ctrl+alt+delete to restart. so i did and the load screen with windows came up with button options to run start-up and boot menus; the normal screen. then it went right back to that black screen. Ive tried running in safe-mode to no avail. booted from cd and ran the recovery and it couldn't find any problems with the boot at all. tried doing a command prompt restore, and a restore from the recovery cd to no avail. tried hitting and holding f8 on start-up to attempt to get into safe-mode, or the Advanced Boot Options menu. i cant think of anything else instead of a format, and that's the very last thing i want to do. does anyone have any ideas i may not have tried or forgot to type in here? my specs that i can recall off the top of my head are as follows:

intel core2 duo 2.2ghz T7500
windows 7
4gb of RAM
GeForce 8600M GT

ran into a snag. it now loads to the starting windows splash screen where the windows logo shows up, freezes there, flashes a BSOD for a 1/4 of a second, then restarts. tried running all recovery options again and they are not working. i started in safemode and it keeps stopping at classpnp.sys
not sure what that is. i tried running sfc /scannow in the windows recovery and it says: There is a system repair pending which requires reboot to complete. restart windows to and sfc again. i do this and it keeps saying the same thing.

thanks for the help so far.
