Windows 8: Blue screen of death (BSoD) is back and its more helpful like ever before

After installing Cisco VPNClient on a Windows 8 pc, the system got unstable and every 30-60s a BSoD and a reboot occured.
After 5 times the BSoD changed to the following screens:

i chose troubleshoot:

Reset did not really looked like what i wanted, so i chose "refresh your pc":

  • Your files and personalization settings won't change
  • Your pc settings will be restored to their defaults
  • Apps from Windows store will be kept
  • Apps that you've installed from discs or websites will be removed
  • A list of removed apps will be saved on your desktop
Doesn't look good, but i think this is better than starting from scratch:

And after several minutes Windows 8 was stable again, but i lost all applications installed from discs and websites. Only some portable programs were still there...
