Bsod please help

I have been getting BSOD's at least 2-3 times a month. It is very scary and frustrating please help! Maybe checking my PC specs or my antivirus would help because i also heard having more than 1 antivirus can cause a BSOD. My operating system is 64 bit. I have been switching my ativiruses from AVG, Ad-Aware, to Malwarebytes. Idk what the real problem is any help would be very appreciated.
Thank you.

I ran all the anti-viruses, and there were not really any threats. I also ran the disk check and the file check and everything seemed to be in order. Here are my dump files.

Hmm have a look at what Golden has suggested and maybe you could run this too as I take it the machine is of some vinatge.

MEMTEST

http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/105647-ram-test-memtest86.htmlthis one you will need to make a bootable disk set the BIOSto optical (or USB if preferred) boot the machine and let it run for at LEAST 8passes unless the errors come up straight away. Takes fair time to complete andsome leave it running overnight.

Thank You!

Thanks to everyone who have helped me. I really appreciate everyting. I apologize for not responding for a while but I have been caught up in other stuff. I am not 100% sure, but I think the problem must be faulty RAM. I have tried everything else to test if it is bad except the awesome Memtest84 program which I couldn't use because it seems impossible to get it to read USB on boot. I am quite bad when it comes to stuff like that.

Anyways, I have found that this RAM will be the best for my very old rig. I know ddr2 is bad but I'm not building a new PC, I'm just replacing broken hardware. Here is a link to the RAM I am thinking of buying. I will also put my specs at the end of this message.

4GB kit (2GBx2), 240-pin DIMM, DDR2 PC2-6400 upgrades for ASUS P5QL PRO Motherboard, CT871159 from Crucial.com

Please tell me your thoughts because I really don't want to buy a bad item.

Sincerely,

Frigasaca

2GB EVGA GTX 550 Ti, Asus P5QL PRO Motherboard, 3gb of Kingston ram, 500gb hardrive, an Intel Core 2 Quad-Core Processor Q6600, 750 Watt power supply. I am running this on Windows 7, 64 Bit

frigasaca, According to the link you provided, Crucial guarantees the ram to be compatible with your motherboard. However, It is usually a bad mistake to spend money on something that you do not know is bad.. I seriously recommend you run memtest86+ as has been suggested. That's the only way to know for sure. Place the usb in the computer, go into BIOS, go to boot order and set the 1st boot device to the USB drive. When the test has completed, go back to bios- boot order and set it back like it is right now. Let the test run overnight for a full 8 passes or until you get errors. If you get an error, you can stop the test.

The error you had is a general hardware error and could be many things. Are you overclocking anything? if so, set everything to default values.

Have you installed any hardware or software recently? If so, please let us know what it is.
