Install the Version you have a serial key for!! Do you have a legal copy of windows with a serial key?

If you can reinstall windows, thats always the solution to almost everything If it is not so easy (like you've got many programs you need) then we can try to further troubleshoot this problem.
When does the problem happen? (like when you do a specific action?) Try to keep in mind what you are doing, it might help to troubleshoot the problem.
Also does this new bsod display a specific error (like KERNEL_DATA_INPAGE_ERROR for example) or does it display a driver name.
I am not a BSOD expert, but I've had many BSOD and fixed a few so maybe we can fix this.
Also, if you do reinstall windows, first try to make sure you do not get any bsods, and then very slowly start to install the programs you had. Maybe one of those programs might be the cause.
IMPORTANT!! Just because you got a bsod on one program and uninstalled it, it doesn't mean its the only programs that could be the cause. Also, many computer error could be caused by conflicts, not a specific program.
Another thing to keep in mind; windows updates could be another cause too, so maybe configure windows to ask you before installing an update. Before installing the update, I recommend researching a bit about each update. Disabling updates entirely, though, is NOT recommended.
I know, this could take painful days and maybe even weeks, but I recommend to follow the steps (at least on the suspicious things).

Then I blue screened with an x101 with the same error as the one I posted 2 posts back.

Did it blue screen right after you installed it?? Or did you install something. Also did you format the disk before you installed it? If you didn't format the disk it could be a virus. If you did format, then it could be a hardware problem.

All right, after researching a bit, found out 101 MAY be some kind of a CPU problem. Did it happen when you ran tasks requiring more CPU? Or did it happen while you computer was idle. Also what is the specific error message (usually at the top) If there is no error message there should be a driver name.

Some options you could try: Testing memory, Testing hard disk (Usually can be done from a software from your hard disk vendor), Disk check (if it indicates bad sectors or bad clusters, it could be a problem with your hard disk), Updating (Or Flashing) BIOS firmware IMPORTANT!! DO NOT FLASH YOUR BIOS UNLESS ABSOLUTELY SURE. It could ruin your bios and make your computer UNBOOTABLE if the file is corrupted or if the flash is not done properly! I have done it once and luckly for me all went fine,and it also fixed a bsod of code x116 when coming from sleep.

Good luck, and hope to hear back soon!

I solved my own problem, my CPU bios is glitchy and I had to disable literally everything but the essentials. I7 2600 apparently has alot of issues.
