Some hardware tests to run.

Pick one for your HDD brand or use Seatools.

Just to get some idea of what's going on.

HD has already been checked, as per the first post:

CHKDSK has also returned no errors

I really don't think its a graphics card issue; but I'll run Furmark anyway...

EDIT: Furmark ran fine for 15 mins; no artifacts. Levelled out at 68 degrees at around 2 mins in; with very occassional nudges up to 69 degrees. Turning off the furry object made it drop back to around 43 degrees (the obvious dip in the middle is where I tried this).

The background in Furmark should be blue and less distorted. This is version 1.12...

Really? Well, I am apparently using 1.9.2. Does that make any difference?

Hmm... but if Furmark is screwing up; I'm really wondering whether its a general motherboard problem.

Actually, I see what I did; I followed the link, ignored the honking big download button (I tend to do so automatically!) and pressed the first link that said download. Looking at the screencaps of 1.9.2 it is supposed to be orange and wibbly like that.

Also just tried resetting the router to factory settings; but still getting a slooow/malfunctioning google and inability to do any direct downloads. Using IE makes Google faster, but it still has the same download problems. With this problem now I'm now having a bit of a nervous breakdown. <headdesk>

OK, that should at least rule out hardware, I think. Here's my orange furmark screen.

Lol mine is very orange in comparison. But that might be the monitor/CCC colour settings I guess. That said, I have got artifacts from time to time playing newer games (Thief, Sleeping Dogs etc.) though I've had no problems at all replaying Dragon Age (with a HQ texture pack mod) the last few days. I've just previously dismissed this as inevitable though; most of the time it is just a minor flicker/checker in one isolated area of the screen.

Also to add; ran CCCleaner. Nothing terribly significant found; a couple of usual missing file extensions, stuff like that which always shows up.

Managed to complete a download by stopping and starting it repeatedly in DownTheMall. Seems it hits a threshold of data or something.

Just a thought or two. Do you have 'Safer Mode' enabled in Online Armor? Try disabling that and test.

CCC has been known to cause a lot of issues too, try uninstalling that. I don't think it's really needed since w7 has a lot of video options along with in-game settings.

Can you follow this post and upload the text files generated here with your next post. The results should give us a better insight into the background processes and configuration that may be causing this issue.

Before posting please read | PC Help Forum

I will admit that this is a bizarre issue and I cannot quite put my finger on the probable cause of this. Not sure what anyone else thinks?

No there is no safer mode enabled in OA.

In attempting to download the CCC Clean uninstaller, the system froze again with a black screen and went unresponsive. Upon restart, I headbutted the desk again and reset the bios to the factory settings and ran a startup repair. This only succeeded in restoring the User Mode Driver crash and causing a slower start up.

Bitdefender has now ceased working entirely and constantly wants me to reboot the system so I've had to close it.

Finally finished downloading the AMD CCC uninstaller and it is running now.

And upon completion of the clean uninstall of Catalyst, the system instantly froze again. Upon restart, it decided to reinstall all of my USB drivers for no apparent reason. I'm am currently in 800x600 resolution. Bitdefender is dead again and OA didn't even try to boot. Still not able to download anything properly; everything is now stuck at 0%, even if using Downthemall, so no ability to get any more diagnosis programes Probably ****ed, eh?
