i have searched for an update to Atheros Security NDIS 6.0 Filter Driver but cant find one, I believe it came with my wireless adapter for virgin media broadband, which when connected began installing itself rather than directing me to download drivers or a cd that came with it.
That's not good that it could not fix all corrupt files. You may have to manually replace the files that it says are corrupt by using a Windows 7 DVD, see Extract Files from Windows 7 Installation DVD. Pay specific attention to the tip at the end for replacing system files.

Looks like theirs a lot of files in their that cannot be repaired, would it be easier for me to just run a clean install? i have all my work backed up already

If you have a Windows 7 DVD, you could do a repair install

Ive looked over the repair install, and im pretty sure i dont have SP1 on my disk, and creating sp1 on a flash drive and all the other steps i need to do, i dont feel confident attempting it without creating more problems for myself lol.

I think i'd like to run a clean install and see if any errors persist, unless you would advise against this.

It's really up to you. I just recommended the repair install because it maintains files and programs on your computer. If you are more comfortable with the clean install and have the time to install everything again, go for it. As you said, your files are backed up, so it's more a question of whether you want to re-install your programs.

Your BIOS won't be affected by Windows being re-installed. The others will, so updating those will be a good start. Also, get your Windows updates installed before installing programs. That is the best way to make sure everything runs smoothly.

Good luck! If you need any help, let us know.

Okay, well ive had another blue screen, same as before, so im guessing its almost definitely a hardware issue.

The message i got was memory management, is there a definitive way of finding out if its the ram or the socket?

and lastly, could a faulty empty socket cause issues?

also sfc showed no errors.
