Edit: I think I fixed it partly


Not sure which computer forum would be the best to post this, but this seems like a good place to start.


Like my post says I am having issues with my computer booting.   


 IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL BSOD caused by ntoskrnl.exe

I am able to boot into safe mode no problem. Normal mode breaks at the login in screen. 

- I think that means it is not a hardware issue.

- Somehow maybe a driver or something is breaking windows. It has to be something that starts up before even login in.

I am not sure how to go about finding what is causing the program. Maybe a windows update but I can't see them from safe mode  It is very strange because window was working the day before. I don't remember any major changes. . 



I am also getting 

SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION (wdfilter.sys) maybe every 10 boots or so.  



To anyone who has these two errors. The fix I found was disabling windows defender. 
The way to do it from safe mode is to 




I still haven't found why windows crap on it self so hard. But I can at least boot up now

You didn't tell us which version of Windows you're running. If it's Windows 10 and you've disabled Windows Defender, please make sure you download another antivirus program too keep you protected.
