Windows 7: Random freezes - Seven Professional x64

Yes, we have System Security section.

If you haven't yet I'd stress test the RAM overnight with memtest, run HD Diagnostic extended CD scan, scour the logs and system resources for clues if you haven't already, assure no startups at all, from the Troubleshooting Steps for Windows 7

I've already stress tested RAM, it didn't show any errors. Also checked the HDDs with HD Diag, not to mention the other tools I've also used (including WD's tool and Dell's tool).

Now about the system logs, they look pretty much the same as they looked before I formatted this computer. Can't load GEARAspiWDM.sys due to incompatibility, GEARAspiWDM can't load something, etc. etc. Other than that, "the shutdown on [some date] was unexpected". These are the hangs.

EDIT: perfmon failed basic system check Hardware Device and Driver Checks, with 2 out of 180 PlugAndPlay Device Configured Fail Count.

GEARAspiWDM.sys appears to be an Itunes CD driver which can cause problems, and your logs say it is incompatible. I would uninstall Itunes to see if the freezes stop.

You might be able to search for the file (after unHiding files in Control Panel>Folder Options>View) If so rename it with .bak so it remains there inert in case you need to restore it.

Now that'll be a problem, because iTunes was never installed on this computer. I don't even know how that got in here. I'll try deleting the file.

EDIT: Can't find it under /system32/drivers. Will look elsewhere.

EDIT 2: Found it under /SYSWOW64/drivers. Deleting now.

I would rename it with .bak so it remains there inert in case you need to restore it. Otherwise leave it in the Recycle bin for awhile to see.

Do you have Bonjour installed for some other program? It's never needed and often problematic.

Will do!

EDIT: On Bonjour, no I don't have it installed - in fact, I don't have ANYTHING Apple installed here - but I kind of need it to use my printer, now that we've come to talk of it. But no, don't have it here.

Removed the driver, now it doesn't identify my CD/DVD drive.

Then replace the driver.

The driver wasn't the problem, the computer just hung twice.

EDIT: Unplugged my DVD drive, let's see if that works.

This piece of s is now freezing so much it's not even usable anymore. What do I do? I have tested RAM, HDDs, GPU, CPU, formatted the computer (twice, once before posting here as well), unplugged the DVD drive, what's next? What could possibly be the problem with this computer?

EDIT: How am I getting this error "The device, \Device\CdRom0, has a bad block." in my logs if the dvd drive is not even plugged?

EDIT 2: Testing GPU again with OCCT.
