Kind of lost here, if I do any sort of rootkit scan AVG or malewarebytes I will almost instantly get a BSOD, even under safe mode. Also my windows update is not updating it fails for the past while I just never knew of it until recently. Last time I tried to update, yesterday, my computer would no longer boot i ended up using the windows 7 disk and it repaired, but it didn't the first few tries. I've tried the sfc /scannow aswell. I am kind of at a loss. I used CCleaner and I feel like many bad things have happened since using it yesterday. It will remove some things and more come, I did backup my registry before hand. Somehow some **** got installed yesterday that installed a bunch more things, I forget what they were like Driver Support and whatnot I got it removed I think, Driver Support still shows up in the uninstall programs but I deleted all the files of it I could find and tried the uninstall but it won't work. Soo I am kind of confused and I don't get why windows update was not working in the first place.
I would occasionally get a BSOD before while gaming or just whenever but never got a chance to save everything from the BSOD but I believe this is what I had been getting even before updates were failing, hasn't updated correctly since 3/18/14.

Also the failures for windows update sayings Code 800F0826. Trying to google it now and figure out what's going on. From what I have gathered I probably have a rootkit virus. What I wish is that I can get rid of it without having too do a complete wipe and reinstall, if I do have to then so be it I suppose... Not evne sure how it happened unless it was a back door through a game client because I don't go to any sketchy websites on this computer...my other one is a different story but still.
Any help would be appreciated, Thanks.
