Windows 7 Professional 64-bit. Windows will load, and I get to the desktop. But after it shows all the icons I get the BSOD. The message is "page fault in non page area". Never heard of this error. It happened after I downloaded updates from Microsoft. I can boot into Safe Mode, but not regular mode. I can't even do a image restore with Aronis True Image, even older images. Any help will be appreciated.

Once in safe mode, can you restore using the regular windows restore points? –  maxmackie May 18 '11 at 3:10

If you're booting into Safe Mode successfully, the problem appears to be a faulty driver. There are several related questions on this forum that will help you navigate the minefield of disabling services and re-enabling them one by one to identify the culprit. –  user3463 May 18 '11 at 3:26
    
Is the Acronis image a full system image? Have you replaced any hardware since the image was made? If a full system image does not work on identical hardware then that would suggest a hardware problem. –  Tog May 18 '11 at 6:50

Thanks for the input. Turned out to be a software conflick between two similar programs. Uninstalled one of them, problem solved. –  Patriot May 22 '11 at 15:38
