Safe Mode never loads desktop

By jpkearns ·
I have a labtop and it keeps blue screening with a stop: 0x00000007 (.... message and when I try to log in as safe mode the computer is running the cpu at 100% and it looks like CRSS.exe is causing all the cpu usage. I just need to log in and get data off the hard drive. I have tried all the boot options like VGA mode and all that but no luck. Any suggestions on how to stop this process? Like maybe on a command line?

You could use either knoppix (linux boot disk) or UBCD (windows based boot disk)

Both will give you access to the harddisk to allow you to copy the data.

The error message has different meanings depending on what operating system you have - you never told us.

So, what OS are you running?
Is this laptop on a network?

More importantly: CRSS.exe is a Worm Virus - and clearly, starting in Safe Mode is not preventing it from running.

You need to download / install an anti-virus program.

Firstly you need to get rid of CRSS.exe. Check out this link:

It explains the Worm and how to get rid of it.
