Hello Team, my name is Dewwond Mapp. Thank you all for welcoming me to this great forum.  I have a doo-sey of a problem. To try and make a long story short, I will attempt to describe my horror swiftly.  I'm running win7 ultimate. I ran NewSID on my system yesterday, and after that I was no longer able to access my computer (Dell Alienware M18x). None of the boot options works! The BSOD error (which I took a picture of with my phone) is attached to this posting.

 

  1. I've tried startup repair to no avail (screen error attached). 
  2. I've tried deleting the newsid.exe through cmd, but I could not locate the path (I really thought that if I could delete the newsid.exe, I would be able to accee windows). 
  3. I also tried the restore point, but got an error telling me that "You must enable System Protection on the drive."
  4. I have tried to repair windows files through windows ultimate install disk (I'm not sure if I was doing it right, because it was goin to do a clean install, and that is clearly THE VERY LAST RESORT!

I sure hope that one of you guru's here have the ability to get me back in.  Thanks so much for your time and effort.

Hi

 

NewSID is never tested and certified for Windows 7. Even the author abandoned the project years ago.

To my chagrin, NewSID has never really done anything useful and there’s no reason to miss it now that it’s retired

 

 

 

I wonder why you didn't created a system restore point before doing something risky like this.

Agreed.  What were you trying to do with NewSID?

As for running the repair from the disk, are you trying to run a start up repair like below?

Thanks so much for the speedy response Mr. Anshad. I did not know all the facts about NewSID. My brother told me that it would be a good idea for my system. To my system's demise, that's proven to be untrue. I have several restore points, but when I try to implement one of them I get the error that You must enable System Protection on the drive.

Hello. Thanks for your response.  Again the idea for running the newsid was my brothers. He is supposedly the computer guy.  In regards to the startup repair, I followed the link you posted. I attached a screenshot of the where I am currently. I didn't know which option to select.

You went to far.  See step three from the link I posted.  You clicked "Install Now" to get to that screen, not "Repair Your Computer" which was the correct one.  Try again.
