This is an all-in-one machine yes?

You need to run Windows Updates urgently, run all rounds of updates before following the instructions in my previous post.
Code:
Hotfix(s):                 7 Hotfix(s) Installed.

You should have well over 200 Hotfixes installed.

Okay, nearly there. How do I go about testing the system? Is there a specific program or do I just go about my business and see if it crashes again?

Just use it as normal. Are you running all rounds of Windows Updates?

Okay, de-installed, then installed again as per your instructions I probably won't install any more windows updates cause I'm afraid it'll damage the system further. There are 150 to install and I only installed the 5 that weren't dealing with security or internet explorer.

Okay, didn't read this one yet. Are the hotfixes the same as the updates? I see the updates and it says about 150 of them to install and all just security ones. I have already done the reinstallation, hope that doesn't cause a problem. Will do the install updates as you suggested. Should I also click the preferred updates search as well?

You need the ones that deal with security. Make Restore Points and backups then install them in groups of five or so. You really do need to install them.

Okay, are those the same as the hotfixes you mentioned or do I go elsewhere to install them? I will warily go ahead and install all those updates after creating another restore point. Then I will test the graphics cards with online videos and running some through vlc.
