Looks like a bad sector or something like that in your C partition.

If you haven't run a Check Disk already you could try that.
Disk Check
Check Disk (chkdsk) - Read Event Viewer Log

To see the BSOD window you need to have Automatically restart unchecked.
Also make sure you have it configured to save a Dump file in case you ever need that.

Control Panel > System > Advanced system settings > Startup and Recovery / Settings

Thanks I'll give chkdsk a go tomorrow. I'll just do a scan initially because it seems it could take a long time if I choose recover or repair options.

I do think there must be a bad sector as suggested. I have the feeling the HD is on borrowed time. If I can't get too far I'll guess I'll replace the computer. It would be a shame as it's still mighty powerful and I like Windows 7. We have another machine with Windows 10 on it and am not too impressed with the OS. Looks nice and all but many bugs at the moment.

Anyway I'll update soon, cheers guys

There would be no need to replace the computer only because one disk may be weak - maybe !!

I suggested back in post#32 that you perform diagnostics on your OS drive. I also suggested along with another that you perform imaging of the 2 smaller partitions. This has shown that your OS partition may contain bad sectors.
I suggest:
1) keep the image of the first 2 partitions. Using this image or restore CD/DVDs supplied with the PC you should be able to do a factory restore. This is the state of the PC when you bought it.
2) you backup all critical data on the OS partition. You can also try saving data from a partition with bad sectors by selecting the following Macrium (V6) options:
other tasks>edit defaults>Advanced>select - ignore bad sectors when creating an image.
I would not use this image to restore but you should be able to mount it and extract data.

I think you will need to ultimately do a factory restore (simplest) or a clean install if you have a Windows COA PID for the PC. It will be on a supplied disc or on a label attached to the PC.

I would not dump the PC as it appears at worst all you may need a HDD replacement.

Thanks guys. I need to ponder on this. I ran chkdisk and frustratingly it reported no errors. So that and seagate tools have come up clean reporting no issues. Clearly something in the OS. Restarting from factory image is something I really wanted to avoid. I do have critical data backed up, it's just all the effort over the years setting everything up. All the carefully crafted game installs and manipulation a of games explorer etc etc. I would take forever to get back to where I was at.

It's good there are no chkdsk errors/bad secors, that should mean the HD is not starting to fail.

I would ask the BSOD team for help in the BSOD Help and Support sub-forum.
BSOD Help and Support

For that you will need a Dump file.
If you don't have one already, configure your Startup and Repair settings like I showed in Post # 62, and run another Macrium backup to cause another BSOD and generate the Dump file.

Here are the posting instructions for a BSOD:

Ok, I ran the image on C: again. I will post over in BSOD forum too. But just in case anything jumps out. I took a pic of the BSOD and waited ages on the screen for it to initialise the dump but it never finished. When I check C: windows\minidump after forced switch of and reboot there was nothing in there.

here are some pics, showing the point of freeze 95% (it's always at this point), the pop up showing port 0 in bottom right and about a minute later the BSOD that appeared. To re-iterate, chkdsk found 0 errors/problems, Seagate tools finds no errors, normal usage of the OS never crashes. I can only re produce this by trying a system image. It happens on both the in built MS disk image tool and also with Macrium.

It will be interesting to find out what the problem is. Did you perform a full chkdsk (should have taken hours).
In any event I think eventually you need to massively trim down the size of your OS partition as painful as it may be.
I you had a docking station you could by a HDD at least as large as the one you are using and try cloning with Macrium.
