    Windows 8 Pro BSOD error code 0xc000007b


    Hi people, I need help! (Too make a long story short) my Windows 8 desktop (as usual) broke and it wont boot up, whenever i try to do so,it goes straight into BSOD
    The BSOD tells me that the operating system could not be load because a critical system driver/required file is missing or contains errors
    tried everything to fix it (except recovery drives) i even tried to boot it in safe mode, no luck
    Here are the screenshots (Cant make a dump, you already saw the reason why when you first read this :P)

    Windows 8 BSOD when booting in safe mode (all types)

    Please read this thread too: A question about making a Recovery drive (please read)
    Thanks for reading!

    Hi KingHamster678,

    The drivers mentioned in the crashes are Windows files.
    It is very odd that some / a lot of the drivers are missing, this could be due to an infection.
    Please read this tutorial for offline scanning for malware.
    Offline scanning indicates a bootable Anti-Virus scanner needed in this kind of crashes.

    How could you say so? I never had/saw any viruses in my desktop ever since i got it...
    plus if i detect a virus, i instantly remove it
    Are there anymore reasons why this happens?

    How could I say so?
    Only malware removes windows files and replaces it with corrupted identical files, in some cases the code is in such a way modified that the file won't load anymore when it is required.

    Your installation could also be corrupted, in that case you would need to boot from recovery media, open command prompt and enter the following command to scan the system files.
    Code:
    sfc/scannow
    Sometimes the installation is too much corrupted that sfc is not able to fix the corruption, then the user is forced to reinstall Windows.

    -.- I hope your not saying that i have a pirated copy
    But, actually i have also heard that some antiviruses remove Windows files as they think they are viruses
    I also think that maybe it would be an incorrect update or something similar (i guess)
    Well, if the recovery drive is the only way, well reply here and answer my questions :P : A question about making a Recovery drive (please read)

    Any other recommendations other than refresh/cmd/offline scan?

    Please first scan your system, I will not suggest something out of nowhere without any lead.
