  1. I've been reading quite a bit about this error and I can't figure out if it's the ram or if it's a software issue. Its not my computer so I don't know much about it. The solution I found was:
    Method 1: Rename the malicious driver by using Internet Explorer
    1. Open Internet Explorer.
    2. In the Address box, type %windir%\system32\drivers, and then press ENTER.
    3. Locate the randomly named .sys file, right-click the file, and then select Rename.
    4. Type malware.old to rename the file, and then press ENTER.
    5. In the Address box, type \WINDOWS\system32, and then press ENTER.
    6. Locate and then rename the following files, if they exist:
    • Msupd5.exe. Rename this file Msupd5.old.
    • Msupd4.exe. Rename this file Msupd4.old.
    • Msupd.exe. Rename this file Msupd.old.
    • Reloadmedude.exe. Rename this file Reloadmedude.old.
    7. Close Internet Explorer.
    8. Restart the computer.
    9. Make sure that your antivirus or anti-spyware software is updated with the latest signatures, and then perform a complete system scan.

    The problem is windows doesn't boot up all the way before the BSOD, so I can't change anything (safe mode doesn't work either)

    Help?
