The good news: I have a partitioned hard drive, windows 7 and windows xp.
On Windows 7, there is a virus which dosen't let me do ANYTHING...
and NOW, everytime I turn on the computer to windows 7, i get the blue screen of death!!!

However, I am able to go to my Windows XP fine, with no virus....
And I am also able to search through my Windows 7 Hard Drive...
SO how do I delete the virus?!!! Is it possible to get AVG or something
and scan Windows 7 Hard-drive on my XP harddrive? :pfff:

How do you know the virus is what is causing your BSOD?

Either way, if you want scan your computer, boot into XP, then download and install two applications: Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, and A-Squared. Install both programs, update them completely. Then scan first with malwarebytes, do a Full scan. Once finished, rescan it with A-Squared.

^OH I completely forgot about that. On top of that, you can download Avira Rescue System, basically a scanner that you burn onto a DVD/CD, then boot into it and scan.

I virus only can cause a BSOD if this play with the kernel (something pretty hard for a virus).

If you XP works fine, the problem is the 7 installation, driver compatibility or something like that.

Try to boot in safe mode or with unsigned drivers and let me know if your get the same errors.
