Windows 7: Intermittent BSOD mixed with Windows Not Starting Properly after updat

Intermittent BSOD mixed with Windows Not Starting Properly after updat

Hello, new to this forum but desperately need help.
I am running Windows 7 64-bit on an ASUS U56E standard everything - no hardware changes ever, bought from a store in the box brand new. Had for about a year now.


About a week or two ago I started to get a black screen when turning on my computer that "Windows Did Not Start Properly" and it would automatically go into another sort of disk check menu and it scans for a half hour and says it couldn't find anything. I then continue and usually it boots up ok. But in the last week I am now getting a BSOD mixed with the black one and the Blue one has an IRQL Not Lesser Or Equal Than error at the top but it goes away quickly and I cannot copy down the error codes on the bottom. I hard-shut down the computer every time this happens and about 50% of the time I get a desktop with no issues and the other half I get the BSOD again. I feel this started happening with the last Windows update and I cannot figure out what to do. I attached my information as stated in the forums rules - hopefully someone can help because I depend on my CPU for work and I'm getting scared that I may not ever get back on it if the frequency continues. I wasn't sure if you recommended system restore or not because I didn't want to restore and then have the windows update come through again and have the same problem again (assuming the new Win7 updates are vital which I read they are).

Thank you anyone and everyone for the help on this in advance.

I was able to uninstall quicktime from the uninstall programs menu, but I'm unsure how to uninstall the following ones:
  • Start Menu\Programs\ASUS
  • Start Menu\Programs\ASUS Utility
  • Start Menu\Programs\ASUS Utility\ASUS Splendid Utility
They appear as folders with multiple programs - should I just right click and delete them out? Or should I uninstall all of the following in my 'uninstall programs' screen listed here:


ASUS AI Recovery
ASUS LifeFrame3
ASUS Power4Gear Hybrid
ASUS Secure Delete
ASUS Spledid Video Enhancement Technology
ASUS SCR_U46_ENG
ATK Package


I am updating the BIOS and such right now too.........what should I do about an anti-virus program in the mean time? Thanks again

if the uninstallations are any problem, try Revo. It uninstalls things including registry leftovers.

Also, follow the guide: Clean Up Factory Bloatware

The best antivirus solution is Microsoft Security Essentials - Free Antivirus for Windows, with windows firewall and free MBAM as on demand scanner. You can trust on the combination more than anything else.
