Windows 7: BSOD Error at random, Not sure what's wrong?

Okay. I know what the problem is. I had a friends on skype who had a spambot thing and kept sending messages to me, I clicked one just to see what it was, and I got infected. I'm 100% sure that's how. It even says on the Microsoft Website that's how it's spread. Trying to look into how to remove it.

How I know it's the Dorkbot.B Worm:

Encyclopedia entry: Worm:Win32/Dorkbot.I - Learn more about malware - Microsoft Malware Protection Center

Not quite sure how to remove it, any help you can give?

Running a full scan on WDO, it hasn't found anything so far. Before closing ESET Online Scanner, it said it deleted the worm, not sure if it actually did, but if WDO finds nothing, I'll see how my computer runs for the next few days, hopefully it's gone, and I'll post any new updates I find here. Thanks so far!

Just had a BSOD after letting my computer sit over night. My monitor went into sleep mode, and when I woke it up and clicked on Skype, I had a BSOD. "PFN_LIST_CORRUPT" was the problem. Now that I think about it, a bunch of my BSOD's happened after waking up my monitor from overnight. Not sure what the problem is this time, ran a Diagnostics scan, uploading the results...

Alright. Can you use one stick and see how the computer performs? (For hours)
And then use the other stick and see if your having freezes crashes or BSOD-s? Test on different RAM slots.

We'll be able to find out if it's a bad stick of RAM.

Okay. BSOD again (MEMORY_MANAGEMENT error), took out one stick of RAM, we'll see how that runs. I'll put it in the second slot in a few hours. I'll keep you posted.
