I tried CTM again last night and it's still a disaster upon attempted un-install. I was up until 2:30AM trying to get past BSOD. Even after I "un-installed" it, it was still present on reboot, then today it just.....disappeared.
It was a bit funny though, CTM was the only thing that would allow my PC to reboot to allow me to fix the problem. It's funny now, it wasn't very funny at 2AM.
