BSOD C4, PC running slower than usual

My Pc began running slow last night and I've been getting sub 10 fps in WoW despite the changes in settings. I've gotten 2 BSOD's today with the error C4, a driver is attempting to corrupt system. I've attached the permon and dump results.

System Specs: Amd Phenom x4, 4gb Corsair 1600 mhz, ati radeon 5770 hd. I'm on my laptop atm, I seem to be constantly getting the C4 BSOD whenever I try to use my Pc, I can log in but after a couple of minutes I'll get a BSOD.

First off,

Do a full scan of your system using: Microsoft Security Essentials - Free Antivirus for Windows

Afterwards: Malwarebytes : Free anti-malware download

If nothing pops up for both of those,

try: Windows Defender Offline

Is there anything from the dump that's important? possibly outdated drivers or something?

This dump actually didn't give me a lot of information. But what I am able to tell it seems like it could be a virus.

I attempted to system restore but it tells me my Main Hard Drive has errors and has detected file system corruption. Should I run Chkdsk after the virus scans?

Run a System File Check: SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

Then also try a Check Disk (chkdsk) - Read Event Viewer Log

After you get done with the WDO test

Shall I run a full scan with Malwarebytes? or just a quick scan?
