Windows 7: Weird program behavior & BSoD

I did come up with something new, but not much
The BC code was again 50, but the cause was a bit different (but that is not too significant). It indicates dxgmms1.sys as the offending driver.
dxgmms1.sys crash – Blue Screen Of Death

You may want to update, your nvidia drivers

In addition, I have found that you have SPTD as a driver. That is a known cause of BSOD; uninstall using the uninstall tool.
Please remove any CD virtualization programs such as Daemon Tools and Alcohol 120%. They use a driver, found in your dmp, sptd.sys, that is notorious for causing BSODs. Use this SPTD uninstaller when you're done:

Okay, I uninstalled SPTD, but I'm still getting BSoD. It seems like I'm getting them a lot less frequent though.

On a side note, I haven't really been looking at the BSoD much, but I decided to read some of it this time. It seems like part of the top left of the blue screen was cut off for some reason, but I saw "ntsf.sys". I'm assuming it might be corrupted? I looked into that file a little, and I've seen a few people also mentioning something about updating nvidia drivers, which brought me back to your post about me updating them. I looked in the device manager, and couldn't find anything about nvidia at all. I'm using a ATI video card, so I don't see how or where I could update nvidia

Here is another minidump

This dump indicates eamon.sys, which is your antivirus. Unisntall with the uninstall tool and download Microsoft Security Essentials, which has never been known to cause a problem with Windows.
ESET Knowledgebase - How do I manually uninstall my ESET security product?

The other dump show, the Video card, again. Update your video drivers.
Nvida or otherwise.

Dont be discouraged, this is the way the minidumps work. Either they give a clear answer, which is not often or they give clues, the more the better.

It may not be Nvdiia, but it is your graphics driver that was mentioned. Go to device manager and check you drivers, especailly the graphics. Look for outdated drivers or yellow warning markers.

I apologize for not replying in a while, I've been busy, but I've decided to reinstall Windows. It finished about an hour ago, and after installing about 5 programs, I got got the same BSoD. So I'm thinking it may be a hardware problem. Let me know what you think

It says probably memory corruption
Take this test run for at least 6-8 scans, overnight is good
Then if you pass take a good stick and test each slot
Download memtest86 and test RAM
