Windows 7: Random BSODs While Not Playing Games or Surfing Internet

I noticed that, too.

I think it was the ScriptBlock extension because when I went back to my browser, it was broken. All it did was block scripts from activating automatically on websites. Guess the programs thought it wasn't needed.

Well, if my HDD is fine and there's nothing wrong with my file system (sfc), then what could be causing my BSODs to not dump to a crash file? I have yet to run the MemTest, so I might be greeted by red errors...

If the MemTest does come up clean too, what would you say I should do next or start worrying about, @axe0 ?

We could try a few things to find out what exactly is the problem, I'm thinking to start with a vanille installation (Windows 7 up to date with only MSE installed) & reseating the memory + cleaning the memory and the slot in necessary to ensure the memory is fine.

Here's the results of the memtest. Once again, clean...

I'm beginning to think my system is haunted by an alien, @axe0.

Hmm; I was just re-reading this reply from you. I haven't really been on my PC since doing the tests. I'll get on it tonight and see.

If it comes down to it, @axe0 , and I do have to install a clean installation on this PC, there's a few things I want to mention:

1) This was pre-built and has preconfigured software
2) There is a system image already on the PC for recovering to factory defaults
3) If I perform a clean installation using nothing but the Windows 7 OS CD, will I have to "hunt down" the software that Dell & Alienware originally put on my PC?

Basically, I'm trying to say that there is stuff on this PC that I'm unsure is important to my PC's build or not. It's pre-built and I don't know if performing a clean installation will cause any unforseen problems.

Hello mate don't know if I suggested it before but maybe a run though with this might not go amiss Kaspersky Rescue Disk 10 as I saw you mention that you might have an alien on board.
