well after checking hard drive, windows stopped crashing. A few weeks ago I used Malwarebytes to get rid of a rogue program on the system. This apparently didnt have permission to start up and was causing the crash. The problem now is I get an error code when I try to open the startup programs window, it says: "Application failed to initialize: 0x80070006. The handle is invalid." I unistalled the program and system boots finein normal mode, though.
