Hello SevenForums. Long time no see.
Before we start this thread, I'd like to go back a few several months to my last few posts, where I was extremely frustrated. And out of the intense frustration I said in one of my posts that "I'd never come back". First of all, I'd like to make a sincere apology for that. It was a very frustrating time for me, as the BSODs would not stop.
So, I've had my computer in a "storage room" safe as I was at another location for 8 months. Finally, moved back into my fathers house, I contacted Virgin Media to reconnect my broadband. In addition to that, I thought...hmm, if I'm having broadband, why not get the full package and go Fibre Optic, have Phone line and TV. So, that's what I did. I've been back on my computer now for almost a week. Then from yesterday I started getting Blue Screen's again. I am uncertain if this is due to the Research In Motion software (BlackBerry) and EVGA Precision X being installed, however I have removed both of them to find out what is causing these crashes. The great issue gallops along, I cannot analyze my mini dumps myself, because Windows SDK fails to install. It says apparently that one of the files are already in existence on my system and therefore has terminated the installation process with the following "errors".

I have included these HTML files in the mini dump archive for you all to take a look at. I ask that you look inside the "Temp" folder for the HTML documents with the errors in for the errors to the Redistributable.
