Windows 7: Have been getting BSODs for years!

Have been getting BSODs for years!

My computer is fairly old (3-5 years). It's a custom build from computerlx.com. Ever since I received it, I have been getting BSODs. At first, I had Windows XP and was hoping an upgrade to Windows 7 would fix the issue, but alas, multiple clean installs came and went and I am still having issues. I guess I just learned to live with them and ignore them. I have done memtests multiple times and they have always come back fine (last time was earlier today).

As for the nature of my crashes; they are most common when my computer is idle, so I always try to have Firefox open. This helps but crashes eventually end up happening anyway. Today, I have decided enough is enough! I am determined to fix the issues with you guys' help!

Attached is my SF diagnostic tool zip.

Thanks but is there any other option? I'd like to not have to spend money on a new setup.

Well I suppose you can run these for starters
SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker
then
Disk Check

then a run with these would not go amiss

While you are at it run this RAM - Test with Memtest86+ you will need to make a bootable disk set the BIOS to boot from optical then let it run for at least 8 passes unless the errors come up straight away but it does take a long time depending on the speed of the machine of course.

PS I did a quick scan for rootkits and I think you should too try this one as I am getting a few hits
