I've never had a problem like this before and im really confused.
Especially when i play games in an evening i would get about 5 bsod's
i dont think i ever got one from just leaving my pc idle, also bsods occur when converting video files, i think it has something to do with, when i use a lot of resource's also some of the error messages were like,
Irql_not_equal, or something like that and a couple others i got those two the most though.

How To Find Drivers:
- search Google for the name of the driver
- compare the Google results with what's installed on your system to figure out which device/program it belongs to
- visit the web site of the manufacturer of the hardware/program to get the latest drivers (DON'T use Windows Update or the Update driver function of Device Manager).
- if there are difficulties in locating them, post back with questions and someone will try and help you locate the appropriate program.

2-Kaspersky. Remove and replace with Microsoft Security Essentials http://support.kaspersky.com/downloa...vremover10.zip http://www.microsoft.com/security_essentials/
3-Memory corruption. Possible caused by Kaspersky or other driver. Test memory with memtest
Download a copy of Memtest86
and burn the ISO to a CD using Iso Recorder
or another ISO burning program. Boot from the CD, and leave it running for at least 5 or 6 passes.
Just remember, any time Memtest reports errors, it can be either bad RAM or a bad motherboard slot. Test the sticks individually, and if you find a good one, test it in all slots.
