In my opinion once you use Advanced System Care or programs like it you could have so many problems that only a repair install or a clean install will solve your problems. Their is no way of knowing what such a program has done.

Lets enable driver verifier to rule out buggy drivers.

Driver Verifier
Quote:
I'd suggest that you first backup your data and then make sure you've got access to another computer so you can contact us if problems arise. Then make a System Restore point (so you can restore the system using the Vista/Windows 7 Startup Repair feature).

In Windows 7 you can make a Startup Repair disk by going to Start....All Programs...Maintenance...Create a System Repair Disc - with Windows Vista you'll have to use your installation disk or the "Repair your computer" option at the top of the Safe Mode menu .

Then, here's the procedure:
- Go to Start and type in verifier and press Enter
- Select Create custom settings (for code developers) and click Next
- Select Select individual settings from a full list and click Next
- Select everything EXCEPT FOR Low Resource Simulation and click Next
- Select Select driver names from a list and click Next
Then select all drivers NOT provided by Microsoft and click Next
- Select Finish on the next page.

Reboot the system and wait for it to crash to the Blue Screen. Continue to use your system normally, and if you know what causes the crash, do that repeatedly. The objective here is to get the system to crash because Driver Verifier is stressing the drivers out. If it doesn't crash for you, then let it run for at least 36 hours of continuous operation (an estimate on my part).

If you can't get into Windows because it crashes too soon, try it in Safe Mode.
If you can't get into Safe Mode, try using System Restore from your installation DVD to set the system back to the previous restore point that you created.
Driver Verifier - Enable and Disable


Verifier puts extreme stress on the drivers, bad ones will cause BSOD. If we change all those drivers we hope for no more BSODs, If you get no BSODs, then its not a driver and we look to hardware. With verifier on your computer may be a little laggy, but actually..its just doing its work.

Information
Driver Verifier runs in the background, "testing" drivers for bugs. If it finds one, a Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) will result; the corresponding dump file will hopefully show the faulty driver.

Sorry that I haven't replied been busy. Ok so I did what you asked and I'm constantly getting a BSOD before my computer even starts up so I'm running on safe mode at the moment (The BSOD doesn't even create a dump sadly) I can get back on non-safe mode if I disable the verifier but that wouldn't be helpful. I'm currently running safe mode on my problematic computer so what would you like me to do?

Sorry I edited my post a bit too late. Problem about my BSOD is that it doesn't seem to create a dump. It just gets a BSOD and then it instantly restarts. It doesn't show the whole "creating dump" message.

Well.

When was the last time you re-installed windows 7?
I think you should give Laybackbears advice a go.

I also noticed another problem, I can't seem to changed the system failure settings. When I try to disable "automatically restart on failure" and change the write debugging info to Small Memory Dumb (256kb) and then I click OK nothing actually ever changes. When I go back to the menu it's all checked and reset again. I can change every other settings EXCEPT the ones in the System failure area. Any idea how to fix this? Thing is I want repair windows to be my LAST possible option.

Well I pretty much tried everything now. Clean install on Windows 7 was only a temp fix as after a week it started BSODing again. Running Verifier for about 24 hours and nothing came up and I can never reproduce this BSOD problem. I'm really starting to think it's some hardware issue. RAM and CPU seems find from previous tests but I'm pretty much getting tired of all this BS.
