Vista BSOD 0x0000007E

Hi guys

I'm fixing a laptop with Vista on it.

It crashes during the boot with a BSOD and error code is 0x0000007E. I've also tried Safe mode - it gets stuck there on a file AVGIDSHS.sys which is in the system/drivers folder. So I'm guessing this is the culprit.

I can access the hard drive via another computer so would it make sense to delete that AVG file and see if it gets better?

I have already run chkdsk /r on it couple of times without any success.

Thanks

unfortunately when you run safemode and you see it get stuck the last file listed is typically the last file successfully loaded and the problem is with the next file/service to be loaded - that you cant see.

Eitherway - don't delete the file - rename it so you can easily rename it back if it doesn't fix anything.

typically it is a dodgy windows update, so you may need to to boot off install cd, use recovery console, and either try a previous restore point or uninstall some recently installed updates.

good instructions are at the bottom of this page:

Hi,

we had a similar issue.
After some research (and some time ;) ) we removed AVG with the following how-to and it works:

So, I renamed the AVGIDSHX.SYS file and Vista loaded into the Safe Mode. Then I downloaded AVG removal tool and after running that I'm back to normal Windows.
So, renaming the last file before it crashed helped here.

Thanks everyone.
