blush MBRGuard BSOD, Healthy Disks HELP PLS

Last night i was trying to find alternative virtualization software to use (currently Shadow Defender) yes Shadow Defender was disabled and wasn't active on any Drives before all this, recently installed Diskeeper and used autodefrag aswel as other features that would make my HDD responsive in the background. Finaly i found a Virtualization software called Drive Vaccine that i decided to try out, Installing was easy but at the final close it came up with MBR Failed message which later i looked online at Horizons FAQ and it mentioned that it's mostly due to MBR protection.

This is when i tried uninstalling Blue Ridge MBRGuard and it just wouldn't budge like it said something about needing the files that it used upon installation so because i coudln't uninstall it, i did what i thought was safe and disabled btguard.sys on startup but now everytime i try to boot windows it loads the GUI but 2 seconds in and BSOD strikes. I've used a variety of recovery tools such as Windows Recovery Console with this i tried FIXMBR and FIXBOOT nothing...Active@ shows all my partitions as Healthy and i can browse them just like i was using my original XP, tried a raw disk image backup but the stupid **** won't detect blank dvd,cds?!

Bart-PE - Haven't tried though i don't know exactly what it does or purpose would this be able to solve also being able to support using cd/dvd partition doctor disk through BartOS unto MyXP?

Attempted Fails:

FIXMBR
FIXBOOT
ACTIVE PARTITION - MBRFIX some sort of REPAIR MBR function
MBRWzd FIXMBR
Partition Doctor - This doesn't even create a RAMdrive or something so that it can run (is it possible to use a bartpe xp and use partition doctor or something like that) ? but i have used this tool before in the past when something simlar happened and it worked, that's why i must try it out this round somehow someway

Is their anything i can do to get into the registry or cause btguard.sys to load up again on startup since this is probally the root cause, i think it's this because it knows where all the MBR information is of the drives right? since it changes the mbr tables? unknowingly sillily i stopped MBRguard Driver from startup so it's not able to boot windows properly i assume. Never again i'm using MBRGuard if this is the ****, might try nprotect maybe not haha, i really hope anyone can help me out here in anyway possible, thanks.

Re: MBRGuard BSOD, Healthy Disks HELP PLS

As i mentioned about this happening once upon a time i have also Formatted a Disk with either corrupt MBR or a just a non-bootable WindowsXP and from that still i was able to recover all my past files, if my memory serves me correct, this was a very long time ago...now i have even more important files on a 1TB SATAN HD. I can do this ofc with no problem but it's an inconvenience and big risk to take which is why i'd like to get second opinions using known risk-free routes.

The only partition that i need is the D:\BACKUP which is:

LOGICAL partition
Total Used Space: 276GB
Total Space: 299GB

The actual size of the HDD is 950GB something like that and the Primary Partition Total Size is something like 600GB+. I can go back into Active@ and get the real figures for this drive if requests are necessary.

Re: MBRGuard BSOD, Healthy Disks HELP PLS

Apart from MBR Guard, you can try some FREEWARE stuff to copy/restore/backup MBR which are listed below:
MBRWizard Command Line and ther iss 3rd party MbrWhisky which is Graphical User Interface for the MbrWizard command line tools. Then there is DIY DataRecovery MBRtool which includes boot diskette builder that will assist you in creating a diskette or bootable CD/DVD.
