Windows 7 64 bit
BSOD soon after Windows 7 loads up

Hi. This is my first post and I'm a bit of a PC novice...
My PC, an HP DM4 64bit purchased directly from HP, approx 6 months old, has just started giving me problems

When I power up, Windows starts to load, I get to the Windows password screen, enter my password, and Windows continues (very slowly) until my desktop appears.

But after just a couple of seconds the PC crashes, with a BSOD appearing very briefly.

If I boot up in safe mode I don't have any crashes

I've tried system restore, but it just hangs for hours.

Windows was pre-installed on the PC, so I don't have the CDs. There is an HP Recovery partition though

I tried to run perfmon /report, but got the error message:
An error occured while attempting to generate the report
The system cannot find the path specified

Any help please?
