BSoD at startup due to virus

Specs: WinXP Pro SP2, Pentium M, 768mb
Hi, I restarted my computer while trying to fix a virus problem ( I believe it is the Google redirector virus). After I restart, I get a Blue Screen a couple of seconds after the XP logo comes up. It tells me the computer has been shut down to prevent damage and to check my computer for viruses. It gives the error:
***STOP: 0x0000007B (0xF798C528, 0xC0000034, 0x00000000, 0x00000000)
If I can get windows to load, I think I know how to remove the virus, so how do I get past this BSoD? I've tried running the Avira rescue cd but it didn't find any viruses. Any way to 'reset' this Windows error or something so I can load how I want? I've also tried booting into safe mode. I get the same BSoD. Please Help!

I thought BSOD, were usualy because of a hardware problem.

Try memtest86 to check the RAM, & a utility from your Hard disk manufacturer to check the hard disk.

I ended up using an XP disc to boot the laptop and let 'Setup' repair my Windows. Now I'm in the process of using ComboFix to get rid of this Google/Recycler virus. Thanks for your input!
