Perhaps not but I would use only one firewall too, that's why most security suites disable the w7 one.

Okay so this time I was actually here to witness it. Before the system went to BSOD Peerblock gave a crash error about "Peerblock experienced an unknown exception" or something of that nature. I couldn't screenshot in time since programs stopped responding. I was using uTorrent at the time. I have a hunch it has to do with these two or mainly Peerblock since it is what gave the error before BSOD. The BSOD error codes were slightly different and I have included another bug diagnostic zip as well as the Peerblock log file if that helps? Thanks!

Do some disc checks.
  1. Update your SSD's Firmware (skip it, if it is not a SSD)
  2. Reseat the sata and power.
  3. Run chkdsk /f/r, following the option two of the tutorial Disk Check
  4. Seatool for dos: SeaTools | Seagate download
    Burn it in a blank cd. boot from the CD, click on "Accept", wait for it to finish detecting the drives, then in the upper left corner select "Basic Tests", then select "Long Test" and let it run.
Let us know the results.

Alright I have checked the disks and all came back healthy. None are SDD, I also ran memtest86 for 2 passes and no problems. I finally went through with the final resort and did a fresh install of Windows. This time I went back to my old mentality of minimalism. The old install was over a year old and I had installed/uninstalled a ton of stuff so it felt messy. Anyway I had another BSOD while idling with music just now. The only constant with before is that I had Peerblock and uTorrent running. I have included another diagnostic zip and a new screenshot of my program files. The Comodo install is ONLY the firewall like before. Windows firewall is disabled. Avira antivirus is ONLY the antivirus and Windows Defender is disabled as well. I am leaning towards either faulty hardware (the system is almost 5 years old so it is possible), either the combination of uTorrent and Peerblock (or just one of them), or god forbid someone hacking my computer while I'm torrenting. If you can see anything in particular in the diagnostic zip please let me know. I am going to test the computer by leaving it on for a week without utorrent to see if that is the cause. If not then I will leave it on for another week without Peerblock. Then finally a week without either. Thanks for putting your time into this case as well!

OK, you uninstall PerfectDisc Professional and uninstall Marvell controllers, too.

I don't see the benefit to removing motherboard drivers and perfectdisk shouldn't cause problems like that. Anyway it BSOD'd again and uTorrent wasn't running. Now it says install is corrupt so I'm assuming the hdd isn't healthy life it said or I have a sneaky virus. Gonna install Linux and virus scan all drives. Thanks for your help earlier.

No Sneaky virus is there. Some might be there, and they are not causing the crashes for sure. As a check, scan the system for possible virus infection.
The problem is, as it may be described, you have installed some weak disc controller, and some unwanted program to monitor the disc. Remove those. If theyy dont work, dont listen to any more of my words.
