BDOD playing skyrim, error 0x000000F4

Was playing skyrim, got a BDOS, 0x000000F4, now whenever I boot my PC up, certain things trigger it to freeze up. Steam is 100% of the time. Sometimes chrome does it. Utorrent did it once as well. Don't really know what to do. I've had this PC for a few months now. I custom built it myself.

EDIT: I just realized I fail spelled BSOD. Great. Oh well. I don't know how to fix it, lol.

Uninstall DAEMON Tools Lite:

Code:
Start Menu\Programs\DAEMON Tools Lite
Daemon Tools is known to cause BSODs and other crashes with Windows 7. Windows provides it's own built-in features which are much more stable, and a third-party alternative is:Note: Please use the BSOD posting instructions to upload the .dmp files

I read the BSOD posting instructions. I tried getting a dump file by doing what it says to in system recovery, but my settings were already like it said and I still didn't end up with a dump file when I got BSOD...And I can't get a completely memory dump since I have well over 2GB of RAM....right?

Back on subject....would something as simple as uninstalling Daemon Tools really fix everything?..

Dump Files - Configure Windows to Create on BSOD

Configure Windows to create a Mini Memory Dump file upon BSOD, and then check this directory upon BSOD:

Code:
%SystemRoot%\Minidump
You will need to substitute the %SystemRoot% for C:\Windows\ or another partition you have installed Windows on.

I can't provide much help if there is no dumps to analyze

Oh...I see what you mean. Now I just have to get BSOD again >:|

EDIT: But wait...if daemon tools was causing BSOD's...and I removed it. Then I shouldn't get them anymore, right? So I won't be able to get a dump, right?...But my computer is still freezing way more than it should.

EDIT: Okay, I opened steam and just as I expected, it froze. I let it hang there for awhile and everything else on my computer started freezing. After a few minutes, finally, I got a BSOD. But it wouldn't dump...It just stayed at "Initializing disk for crash dump..." and never made any progress. Why is this?

EDIT:OK I need to learn to read lol... I did the other option for complete dumps and restarted. Now I'm just trying to get another BSOD....GRRR why won't it give me one when I want one?

EDIT: After numerous attempts of me opening random crap to try and get a bsod....I got one and it STILL DIDN'T DUMP. It still sat at the intializing disk for crash dump. How am I supposed to get a dump if none of these methods even work for me?

EDIT: Sooo...Can someone help me with getting my computer to dump when I get a BSOD?... Am I doing something wrong?
