Windows 7: Random BSODs and Crashes (in-game/idle/browsing)

WOW. Something really odd just happened to me. I had to reboot the PC so that the Windows could complete an atualization, but everytime it went to 35%, the system just told me it had failed to set the modifications. Also, when I see the Windows Update log, everything seems to have failed. So I couldn't enter Windows.
I could collect the minidump files when I managed to enter Windows (now). Be attaching it.
I will just look up on Google for solutions to this. But I would apreciate if you could take a look in these files. Also, I ran SFC /SCANNOW to solve some problems that were occurring (CLIStart.exe keeps failing) and here's the log too (some files could not be repaired):

Muggie, do you have a Flash drive or blank cd to burn memtest86 to? You should go ahead and test the RAM now, as previously advised. RAM - Test with Memtest86+ If you have bad RAM, your install will be defunct. Please do this before proceeding. If you get any errors, stop the test. Remove all but one stick of RAM and test individually, each stick, in each slot. Make note of the behavior during the test.

Post back your results when finished. A friend of mine will watch the thread in case I cannot be around to assist.

Running MEMTEST.
It is at 25%. Here are the results 'til the current moment:
PASS 25%
ERRORS: 33792
4863.9MB (Don't know what it means, but I have a bad feeling about it)

Oh, I remembered what you had said, to stop the test as soon as I get any erros, so that's what I did. Running it all over again (about 55% now)

Wow, 30 minutes per pass... I think I will run it overnight. I will try to fix the Windows Update for now.

If you get an error, test each stick individually, per slot. As soon as you get an error, move to the next step.
So, run the test, if you get an error, stop immediately. Move the stick to the next slot, if you get an error, stop, move the stick to the next slot. Continue to do this until you have tested all sticks, in all slots. Mark, on a sheet of paper, the behavior in each slot, with either a p or f in slot a1, a2, b1 and b2.

Do not continue with the OS if you have not finished testing the RAM. Bad RAM, during an OS install, will result in a bad install.

I had to do a fresh install of Windows about 20 minutes ago, because the Windows Update wasn't able to install the updates and then I kept getting that BSOD "process1_initializaton_failed".
The error in the Windows Update persists. Do you think it could be because of the RAM?
Anyway, be running it overnight.

yes, it probably is the ram, or the hard disk. Test the RAM and let us know.

What must I do:
Run MEMTEST with both the memory sticks on their slots, without getting any errors, or run the MEMTEST one per one?

You already ran it with both in. You said it came up with errors. Now test the sticks individually.
