BSOD BF3 numerous errors, multiple crashes/day

Well I've just about had enough of all these BSOD's. I'm currently using a computer I put together about 3 years ago and slowly adding new hardware to. I've been having BSODs the entire time, at least twice per day with different error codes each time. At first I thought it was a RAM hardware issue because I traded my RAM (assumed faulty) with my neighbor to see if he would get blue screens while using it like I do. We traded for about 6 months, neither he nor I got any BSOD while using each other's RAM. I have 6GB Corsair Dominator @1600 MHz and he had some generic (can't remember) 6GB @ 1366MHz. Like I said, we switched and had no problems. So then I got my RAM back and instinctively ran it through memtest86 over night and to my surprise it posted back all runs successful with 0 errors... So I tested each stick individually over night, getting the same results. I've thrown out the bad stick of RAM idea, but I'm still skeptical because of the success I had with my neighbors RAM in my machine. I've held off replacing the RAM as it was 200$ when I bought it 3 years ago, though I assume the stuff is a fraction of that now.

After 3 years I'm finally fed up and enough is enough. I've tried to analyze these myself but I just can't make sense of them and would appreciate 7forum's expertise. I purchased Windows 7 OEM and installed it myself. First time installing it my computer crashed halfway through(first time computer was ever used), so I installed it again successfully the second time. Originally I thought that it might have just been BSOD'ing because I had "1.5" operating systems installed and the files were corrupted, so just this past December I did a clean reinstall and wiped my entire drive. Still, the problem persists. Anyway... here are all the appropriate files and stuff for you guys to look through and tell me whats going wrong!

Thanks all!

Michael

What frequency do you run your RAM at?

Download and install CPU-Z and Upload screenshots of the CPU, Mainboard, Memory, and SPD tabs. In the SPD tab, upload an image of each slot.


Problematic software:
Code:
tuneuputilitiesapp64.exe	c:\program files (x86)\tuneup utilities 2012\tuneuputilitiesapp64.exe	2640	8	200	1380	5/9/2012 11:00 PM	12.0.3500.14	1.29 MB (1,352,512 bytes)	4/5/2012 1:08 PM
tuneuputilitiesservice64.exe	c:\program files (x86)\tuneup utilities 2012\tuneuputilitiesservice64.exe	1380	8	200	1380	5/9/2012 11:00 PM	12.0.3500.14	2.04 MB (2,143,552 bytes)	4/5/2012 1:08 PM
Many of us on the forums actually do not recommend automated optimization tools for Windows 7. Windows 7 does a much better job of handling its own optimization than its predecessors did. We especially do not recommend registry cleaning as an "optimization" step because automated registry cleaning causes more harm to the registry than it actually repairs.

In the future, if you need help optimizing Windows 7, please post a thread in Performance & Maintenance - Windows 7 Forums or follow the tutorial enclosed in that forum to Optimize Windows 7.


Security Software: ??? I recommend either of these two setups:Download and install the security setup of your choice, update the software, and then run a full scan of your system for viruses and malware. If you only install MSE, I would also suggest installing and updating Malwarebytes : Free anti-malware, anti-virus and spyware removal download, but do not start the free trial/full version of Malwarebytes. Run a full scan with Malwarebytes after updating it. Post back the results.


Given that you have a STOP 0x101: CLOCK_WATCHDOG_TIMEOUT troubleshtg, I suspect that your processor's memory controller is having issues with your memory. Please provide the information asked for at the start of this post.

No problem. If you have any more issues, follow the rest of the advice in my previous post. Otherwise, post back in a few days how the system is responding.

The virus may have been at least contributing to your problems. Hopefully removing it will increase stability a bit.

To increase stability further: For your RAM, you need to run with a Command Rate of 2T. You should be able to manually set this in your BIOS settings.

I thought 1T was standard?

1T is standard, but when running more than two modules of RAM, 2T provides better support.
