Computer Shut Down. Windows 7 error?
I have a Dell XPS 15z which has had random black screen shut downs since the day I got it. Dell said (we narrowed it down) to most likely a Windows 7 issue. I don't have a warranty on this system even though it is new because it was a computer replacement and I'm not paying Dell another dime for anything including a warranty for this one.
Anyway I have attached my copied files and I hope somebody can get some insight on how to fix this system.

You have a ton of crap (literally, junk applications) loading at startup. I'm betting that's the cause of your BSODs.

You'll notice I added extra emphasis to the mcafee entry. I want you to completely uninstall McAfee. I'm guessing it's just a trial anyway if this was preloaded on your Dell. Once it is removed, download and install Microsoft Security Essentials.
Once all of that is done, you should uninstall as much of the Dell crapware as you can - the preloaded applications that are trials/bloatware/etc.
Do all of that and come back and let us know if that helps.
