Hello Eassidezz, welcome to SF!

I see only a dump file. To really help, we need all the info referred to here: http://www.sevenforums.com/crashes-d...tructions.html

Going on that one dump file however, I'd hazard a guess that you haven an issue with your AVG antivirus. Could be, if using browser add-on from AVG that that is the problem.

As a test, I would delete AVG and put in a temporary Windows Essentials or Avast!

Thank you for the bright introduction. as of right now, i am uninstalling AVG, i have also heard that Avast! is also very good.

OK, getting somewhere now I hope:

It appears you got Verifier on. That is a good thing, these are Verifier enabled dumps and sometimes that does help to better pinpoint a faulting driver.

I would start by updating your nVidia stuff. Some of it is a bit old.
Drivers - Download NVIDIA Drivers

But also, AVG is still the main target. Your second to last dump shows that.

If you have any dumps AFTER removing AVG, please upload.

Also, some of this could be caused by your failed Windows updates on the 7th.

Please go to your Maintenance Center and check the Windows Update status. Make sure you are up to date, do them one by one manually if needed.

Bad news. This crash was still verifier related. And it blames the newly installed avast! driver. That is a bit strange. Sometimes Verifier can be a bit iffy... Let's try two things.
1. Disable verifier. Since you turned it on I assume you know how, if not, post back please...

If it still crashes after that... then it is starting to look like HW/BIOS error which we'll start to test by looking at memory first.
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.

RAM - Test with Memtest86+
