Crashes indicate Avira being a possible cause. Remove Avira and replace with Microsoft Security Essentials to see if it provides more stability. Uninstallers (removal tools) for common antivirus software - ESET Knowledgebase

Microsoft Security Essentials and Malwarebytes, both recommended from a strict BSOD perspective.

Thank you,

1-SFC /scannow didnt find anything wrong with system files.
2-Disk check still had a crash after it.
3- i have a gaming pc so all my services are needed, if a clean boot helps than i would rather re-install windows than disable a service.
4-memtest86+ made the USB ill do it tonight.
5- my 1TB is "WDC WD10EARX-22N0YB0 ATA DEvice" didnt find the test software.

-will re-installing windows fix everything ?
-uninstalled Avira.

It appears your motherboard has a bad slot, if you ran memtest as in the tutorial you would find that. even one error is bad. the shutdown won't hurt your RAM, but a bad slot or RAM module may make the system unusable.
I doubt you need all applications to start with Windows, they will still work when you want them to.

A reinstall may not help until you determine what the issue is causing the BSOD.

Just started windows with a clean boot (disabled everything services/startup) still got a BSOD.

Question : since i unplugged the power cable while playing (graphic card temp rises and the fan is off) could the heat harm the card memory ? (2GB dedicated memory) and causes a bsod ?

It could damage the GPU chip. Check all of your cable connections, pull them off and reconnect to be sure. How hot is the GPU? Usually 80C or over is bad.
