Windows 7: Frequent BSOD crashes

You should be able to uninstall any program from Programs and Features:

Programs and Features - Uninstall or Change a Program

If you can't figure out which program is using that driver, go to C:\Windows\System32\Drivers, and delete pfc.sys.

There is no pfc.sys driver in that folder. Are we now getting closer to the source of the error?

There is a pfc.sys driver in the Windows\SysWOW64\drivers. That seems to be the one referred to in the error messages. Should I delete that, or am I on quicksand? Here's a perfmon file I tried to upload earlier today, but didn't seem to succeed.
p.s. I have already uninstalled some of the programs I don't use. The Event Viewer still reports a lot of problems every restart though. Let me know if a new file will help.
HMMM! I just checked and no event problems at last restart.

I think I will do a clean instal of Windows and see if I can avoid all these errors. Thanks to those who have helped so far.

Well, am not having a lot of success. After a clean instal of W7, I am getting BSODs with only the MB software added to the original W7-64 installation. Can anyone help me to fix at this early stage?

Try running some hardware tests:

Run each of the three Prime95 tests:

Hardware - Stress Test With Prime95

Also run Memtest86: RAM - Test with Memtest86+

The time is off by more than the time service can change.


The time service has detected that the system time needs to be changed by -59317 seconds. The time service will not change the system time by more than 54000 seconds.

Am running the Prime95. I don't understand 'three . . . tests' ? There seems to be only one here.

There should be three Prime95 tests: Blend, Large FFTs, and Small FFTs.
