Still issues

uninstalled avira antivir completely and i used CCleaner to remove the the entries of the registries and crap.

after that i uninstalled Ccleaner

another BSOD
what is happening...

IF I DO A DRIVE WIPE AND A TOTAL REINSTALL OF WINDOWS 7 WILL THIS SOLVE THE PROBLEM?

Do we even know if its software/hardware related? its to do with just drivers right?

two more dump files after uninstalling avira

these following dump files are the ones i got after uninstalling my only antivirus software avira antivir.

After my two BSODs i installed Avast. just for your information.

And i still have the same issues as before, any processes i have before i get a BSOD corrupts. Example:

Now for some reason my firefox crashes more than it used to, reinstalling solves this.

Now for some reason certain applications like games have fatal errors in the middle of launch or at the start. Reinstalling...

goodness this sucks...

The two newest report memory corruption

Memory corruption probably caused by a driver. please run these two tests




1-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.

RAM - Test with Memtest86+



2-Driver verifier


Quote:
I'd suggest that you first backup your data and then make sure you've got access to another computer so you can contact us if problems arise. Then make a System Restore point (so you can restore the system using the Vista/Win7 Startup Repair feature).

In Windows 7 you can make a Startup Repair disk by going to Start....All Programs...Maintenance...Create a System Repair Disc - with Windows Vista you'll have to use your installation disk or the "Repair your computer" option at the top of the Safe Mode menu .

Then, here's the procedure:
- Go to Start and type in "verifier" (without the quotes) and press Enter
- Select "Create custom settings (for code developers)" and click "Next"
- Select "Select individual settings from a full list" and click "Next"
- Select everything EXCEPT FOR "Low Resource Simulation" and click "Next"
- Select "Select driver names from a list" and click "Next"
Then select all drivers NOT provided by Microsoft and click "Next"
- Select "Finish" on the next page.

Reboot the system and wait for it to crash to the Blue Screen. Continue to use your system normally, and if you know what causes the crash, do that repeatedly. The objective here is to get the system to crash because Driver Verifier is stressing the drivers out. If it doesn't crash for you, then let it run for at least 36 hours of continuous operation (an estimate on my part).

If you can't get into Windows because it crashes too soon, try it in Safe Mode.
If you can't get into Safe Mode, try using System Restore from your installation DVD to set the system back to the previous restore point that you created.

Two would be fine. It may take as much as 24-36 hours for verifier to crash the computer when it finds the driver

i only got errors running the memtest once when both sticks of ram were inside, i tested both ram sticks one by one. So far i put stick #1 in both slots+tested and #2 stick in one of the slots and tested alone, All showing 0 errors.

a incompatibility issue between the sticks???

so strange...
