Freeze after login except in safe/diagnostic modes

Freeze after login except in safe/diagnostic modes Icon

Windows 7 64 bit freezes after login. Because I could not figure out why, I completely re-installed the OS and it ran for a while, but has now started freezing again right after login. Also of interest is the fact that if I create a new user while in safe mode I can boot and run as that user for a while, but eventually that will start to freeze right after login too.

I can boot in Safe and Diagnostic Mode (MSConfig) and it will run without problems. What should I do?

 

BSOD Ox00000074: Cannot get into Safe Mode - System Restore doesn't help

BSOD Ox00000074: Cannot get into Safe Mode - System Restore doesn't help Icon
My pc has been doing fine with exception of IE 64 hanging and not opening. After much reading, resets, turning off helper apps, I went to msconfig and clicked "diagnostic mode". I rebooted, came to initial Windows Screen, then BSOD - Ox00000074.

I have read many threads to no avail, all talking about memory being bad. That is not the case.
I "CANNOT" get into Safe Mode, Boot Mode, well any mode from F8. I let Win7 do the diagnostics and repair, to no avail. I let Win7 do a System Restore, which it said completed fine, still BSOD.

I'm currently on a second drive on this same pc, but it is NOT up to date, however, I can access the other problem drive from this drive.

IS there a way or workaround where I can access the other drives msconfig and change diagnostic back, or access the registry on that drive and change msconfig back to regular start-up. There is no doubt in my mind that the "diagnostic mode" caused the problem.
 

Boots only into SAFE mode - last good configuration option not available

Boots only into SAFE mode - last good configuration option not available Icon

Windows 7 will not boot into NORMAL mode. It will only boot into SAFE mode. This Windows does not provide the option: Boot into last good configuration. It only offers:
SAFE
SAFE with Networking
Normal

In Safe Mode, I can not get Windows to react to a hard network connection.

I don't know how to get out of the SAFE mode loop and force Windows back into NORMAL mode.

How to disable safe mode. Cannot run laptop as usual, because I accessed safe mode in error Icon

I accessed the startup controls and went into boot. Cannot remember how I did this. I was checking on an answer from the action center. Now I can no longer bring this startup tasks back up, to disable safe mode. My network will not work on safe mode.

 

Set Safe Mode as Boot in GUI, can't undo

Set Safe Mode as Boot in GUI, can't undo Icon

How do I undo Safe mode set in GUI for Windows 7? I set the safe mode in normal mode to boot up safe mode to fix some problems, however, the system will not boot in safe and only restarts over and over, I can't undo the check mark I put so it just makes a loop now.

If I use F8, I still can't get into safe mode, I've run the Startup Repair tool from windows 7, and Last Known Good attempts to boot normal mode but gives me a BSOD.

Safe mode is a troubleshooting option for Windows that starts your computer in a limited state. Only the basic files and drivers necessary to run Windows are started. The words Safe Mode appear in the corners of your monitor to identify which Windows mode you're using.

Safe mode Windows 7

I attempted to start in safe mode with the intension of running malwarebytes in safe mode but PC won't start in safe mode.

Pressing F8 before splash screen but all I get is a small blue panel asking what drive to boot but whatever I do it always starts normally (apart from being mega slow to boot after I've attempted this)

Fails to go into safe mode. Stuck at classpnp.sys

Fails to go into safe mode. Stuck at classpnp.sys Icon

I wanted to go into safe mode on windows 7 but it kept stopping at classpnp.sys . After reading a few threads I read about using Msconfig and checking the safe mode option under "Boot". It still keeps staying at classpnp.sys and when I hit F8 and hit "Last Known Good Configuration (advanced)" it seems to be able to get trough and it says it's actually loading up safe mode but then it changes to a black screen and does not change from that screen.

If any of you know a command I could type in cmd to bring up the msconfig while in repair mode I could fix it because all I need to do is untick "Safe mode on startup"
