Windows 7: BSOD's after log on

BSOD's after log on

I've had 7 BSOD's in as many days, usually not long after - finally! - getting to the desktop. I can't reboot in safe mode, as recovery screen won't allow me to highlight any of the options (why is that?), so it just times me out to Normal mode.

I've downloaded your SF Diagnostic Tool and here's the upload. Would you guys please take a look and give me a clue - thanks!

The only software I've installed lately are Comodo's System Cleaner and free Avast! My system was running slow long before the two downloads. Diagnostics say Comodo and Nvidia kernel are slowing boot up/shut down/coming out of sleep mode.

As extra info, I've read that my user profile is too large (5.68GB), and causing slow boots to the desktop? Largest item on my Desktop is my Jpegs folder which is 2GB.

Thanks Koolkat but wow, that's some list.. I take it all the dump files, etc. didn't point in one direction? Well, bear with me then, may take me a week! By the way I updated the Nvidia driver, which made no difference, and according to System Diagnostics the total physical memory is not capable of handling the load and is experiencing excessive paging...

koolkat77 is off line at the present time. Unless the driver you install is having problems you should be able to do each thing koolkat77 requested one at a time.

Thanks LB, but its the problem of downloading + installing another 8 or so programs/utilities and having more windows open when I already apparently don't have enough available memory. I'll try it, as you say, one at a time but I shan't be surprised if I crash more often than before.

solved, methinks ..

I appear to have solved the problem myself, no BSOD's in 2 days ..
First I reduced my userprofile size (nearly 6GB (!)) down to 1.5GB by moving the 2 folders on my desktop that contained my photos and documents. I backed them up, then moved them to my D(Data) drive and put shortcuts on my desktop. I moved all full programs that were on the desktop (Lightroom Portable, TotalMedia and FastStone) to the Downloads folder, and put their shortcuts on the desktop.

As Windows doesn't tell me what exactly my user profile settings consist of, I can't with my relatively limited knowledge pare it down any further. Anyhow, since doing this, I have had no memory problems, no paging problems, no crashes, and faster boot up and shut down. Eureka!
