Did you recently scan the system for malware?

Malwarebytes is the 1st choice around here for stand alone scanners. They've added a "trail" for their paid product, decline the trial and install the free version.

You can also try the ESET online scanner. It requires IE - you might have to "install it twice". I had to and so did a member I suggested it to.

I would also run chkdsk on the drive.

Run one at a time (choose one mw scanner)
chkdsk will boot and scan before loading windows

Yes, that's the one, it should run on a reboot. You do have two yellow caution signs there, I don't know what they mean, but that may be an indicator of a failing drive.

Thanks, I opened it from the download, I save it then opened and it works.

Well that all looks good - no bugs and chkdsk (image removed from quote) found no issue.

I'm surprised though. I expected it to boot and run before windows.

Would you mind trying chkdsk from the properties of your C:\ drive?
(tools tab-> check disk for errors... click both radio buttons)
thanks, this will run longer due to a deeper scan

and just so I'm certain - the HDD test results are from your C:\ drive - right?

The games crashed after installing them just after you installed the Updates?

Check first if you have the latest Display driver from the Nvidia Support Downloads webpage.

Wait to see if it crashes, if so disable the two Nvidia services in the msconfig>Startup.

Chkdsk is more of a volume check. The way you ran it, from a command prompt and without switches just tells you the file system on that volume is intact. If you had the /r switch appended it'll additionally repair file system errors, check for physical errors (surface), find bad sectors and try to recover data. It won't run to completion, instead it'll prompt you asking if you want it to run at reboot. However you do it, command line or GUI, it's only checking/repairing that volume and not the whole disk.

Apparently Seatools has problems reading SMART status of both your drives (Samsung, now Maxtor), even though Seagate owns both brands, owning Maxtor for the better part of a decade. Kind of makes me wonder about your download of Seatools (although unlikely as the program runs without error). But still...

Also, after experiencing a BSOD while running off of the second drive/install, it's starting to point to problems elsewhere. Your Samsung is in better shape than your Maxtor. Even though the Maxtor has a few reallocated sectors, it appears to have a very high number of CRC errors (over 1200, if I'm reading it correctly). I'm not sure of the significance of such a high number there. Taking that into consideration along with the already reallocated sectors, I'd consider it better used as a temp drive.

@Britton30,
I restarted my pc twice and never got it? I will try again later. (I may forget)

@Slartybart,
Done and here is the log..
And yes I am doing it on the C:\ (Which is my HD)

@gregrocker,
Yep, after all that it still crashed
I will do that test later when I get home from college :3
And I will post back later to show you my results.

@F5ing,
Am sure (could be wrong) But that is the same as what Slartybart said?
Yes I to find it odd, I downloaded Seatools dos tool (Windows 7 32-64 bit) Then burned it with Windows burner..
Yes I agree! I found my Samsung HD better then this.. I find this HD slower... BUT it boots faster oO
