Would ALSO recommend you remove AVG and replace it Microsoft security Essentials.

I note you have AVG.

AVG can be a contributing cause of BSOD'S .
Please remove and replace with Microsoft Security Essentials
AT LEAST TO TEST

Download tools and utilities | AVG Worldwide

Microsoft Security Essentials - Free Antivirus for Windows

Reporting with an update:

I managed to run a Memtest scan using the USB bootable (took me a while to figure out how to prioritize it as the bootable drive since my BIOS was a bit different from the ones I saw online), and managed to run up to 11 passes. This was run through the course of around 11 hours, and no errors were found in the process. In the bottom of the screen it said that the Pass was complete and I can escape anytime so I did.

Proceeding with the extended version of the Windows Diagnostic Tool next.

[EDIT] Also since joining here I have not been getting any blue screens since, BUT my computer has been randomly freezing up still, in case this means anything.

I've removed and re-installed AVG. But since you suggest putting Essentials instead, I will try.

I finished the extended version of the Memory Diagnostic Tool test (took around a good 7 hours or so). I'm not sure where to check for a detailed analysis, but I received a quick pop up from the notification area saying it found no problems, and I checked the System tab of the Event Viewer, and found two entries stating that the Memory test did not find any errors.

This is starting to make me wonder.

I'll now proceed with the Driver Fitness test next, though I'll have to get myself a CD first before I can do this. Will update as soon as I'm done with it.

[EDIT] HOOOkay. I got another IRQL not or less equal BSOD after turning on my laptop from sleep mode. Does that mean anything?

I also uninstalled AVG for MSE. I was reluctant because AVG has proven itself many times by blocking a lot of threats from my pc, and not sure if MSE can do the same. Done anyway.

I now got a whopping 39 pending updates from Windows Update, but mostly from Microsoft Office. As I do not have the product keys for the software anyway, should I still install them?

I apologize for the incessant editing, but I'd rather do this than incur a triple post. I got another IRQL not or less equal BSOD even after installing MSE. This is really starting to test my patience.

Sorry for the absence. Had a machine meltdown. I would do any critical OS updates (not the office ones yet)

If you keep BSODing upload the DMP files.

Not at all. Thanks for replying. Hope your machine's running fine now.

I ran full scan of MSE (5 hours), and to my surprise, it found a number of threats that even Malwarebytes, AVG, nor TDSS killer wasn't able to detect.

The threat name was Trojan:JS/Hiloti.C, along with Java related files. Before I could manage to remove them though (as I was reading the source and details) I suddenly got that IRQL BSOD so my computer restarted. Went into safe mode, restarted, logged in my user and to my relief the results were still there and allowed me to remove them. Though stubborn as I was I decided to read the details first and yet again, I was faced with IRQL BSOD. Cycled a third time and deleted it without hesitation.

Sorry if that explanation was too long, but I wanted to provide as much information as I could to make sure that it was this trojan that was causing my blue screen/s and errors. I just can't figure out why all the other tools weren't able to detect this. Does this at least explain why my software/device scans all passed the testings?

If it is, I'd appreciate to hear tips to further, thoroughly make sure that this really was the cause of the BSODs.

No way to be sure but malware often causes bsod's. I would re-run Malwarebytes again just to be sure.

If it were mine I would clean to be certain.

Just finished scanning with Malwarebytes. Scans found 0 errors/infections.

Though my laptop just froze again, and after I restarted, my screen went black. Should I zip up another system report?

[EDIT] Scratch that. Just got another blue screen. I'll be uploading another report in a few.

Attached a system report. Thanks for baring with me, people.

Also in the span of time after doing the report, I had two BSODs, one Page fault and one IRQL not or less equal, both caused by ntoskrnl.exe. Hope that contributes.

zigzag3143 is one of the busiest members on here, so sometimes threads get missed. Sorry about that. Did you run the drive fitness test yet?

Run the following to test hardware:

I ran that prime95 program, and I'm not sure if it helped cause the bsod but I got a new one about after 20 minutes later named "A device driver attempting to corrupt the system has been caught." Could this finally be the cause of all my bsods so far?

Attached is the latest report from my system. Again, I appreciate the time you guys take to help.

[EDIT] I read in another site that one of the blue screens I suffered may be caused by a hacker trying to access my system. That's very bothering indeed.
