Have you tried a Repair from a Windows OS Disk.

 

You have posted No Operating System , PC Model etc .....we cant guess ?

 

That error code points to a memory exception.
You may be able to boot into safe mode if you remove all but one stick of RAM.

All of this was done in a VM. I appreciate you want to help, but at this point, the best thing to do is to wipe the VM clean :P

 

So let's see how this all went down

 

Set up a clean VM > get a pack of 50 fake AVs > run em all at the same time for fun sake > screen is covered in the fake AVs and task manager and regedit get disabled (you can thank Security essentials 2010 and security tool for that one :) ) but msconfig is left alone > disabled all start up programs that are safe to disable > reboot and find most of them are disabled, but a few remained > attempt msconfig again, same result > Try setting minimum boot mode with msconfig > reboots and bsod happens > tries all three safe modes, bsod occurs in all three > tries normal mode, bsod. > run an offline virus scan and removes most viruses > tries booting to normal mode, bsod'd again > tries an offline reg editor to reset msconfig's settings > attempts once again to boot to normal mode, bsod'd again >_<  > gives up for the night and logs off.

But hey if anyone wants to try and help me figure out how to fix the install without reinstalling the OS or restoring to a snapshot on VMWare, it'd be a fun thing to try :P

So I came back to a snapshot taken in the VM about almost a month later, and found there was a TDSS rootkit on the VM. Which would explain the repeated BSODs: Msconfig was set to try to boot to safe mode, but TDSS kept blocking safe mode. So after being bored last night, I went in with Kaspersky's rescue CD and cleaned it up. But yeah, it was actually a lot of fun to try and fix it :)
