There's a reason no one wastes their time calling Microsoft for support. That's why forums such as this exist.

Now, it sounds to me like your OS is corrupt, or you have a hardware issue, such as bad memory. Have you run Memtest? You could also try running a repair from your Windows 7 install media.

DeaconFrost: didn't think of that, but I wiped the HD last night w/DBAN & reinstalled 7Pro 64Bit this mourning. Once everything is up & running, I'll run MemTest. Is there a test I can use for the CPU (AMD) & Motherboard (MSI) as well?

Maybe Prime95 or something like that. If your cooling is up to par, making the system work hard for a while usually will expose processor or motherboard issues.

For what it's worth, DBAN will do the job, but it's way overkill for a drive you are keeping and using again. DBAN is useful for a drive you plan to sell on eBay or throw away, etc. Kind of like burning your house down and rebuilding, just to clean the carpets.

I'm using the stock fan on the CPU right now. I don't do much of anything that is highly taxing;
Photoshop sometimes, but just to resize/clean-up pics of watermarks.

BTW, what is too high of a temp for an AMD Athlon II X3 CPU? I never did find this out.

Ok, 7 Pro 64Bit installed & all but 2 updates (the 32GB SD Card update & IE9). So far I've only installed Logitech's SetPoint & my Canon Printer software.

Just to check, I went into Event Viewer & found all sorts of errors & warnings. Since this install is fresh, can anyone help decipher what all these mean? I'm wondering if something in there was the cause of my problems before.

I'm a little confused on which MemTest package to DL & how to run it, some help please?

I don't see anything posted or linked to decipher.

I'm not sure how to save the Event Viewer logs so I can post them here; I tried, but it all came out as computer talk. Can someone tell me how.

Did you try changing the file type as text, when the save window opens?

Ok, saved them as text files, hope someone can tell me if anything needs addressing right away.

I put the text files into .zip format because the Security Log itself was over the 1.00MB limit.

Definitely have some bizarre event there. Run that memtest as the tutorial suggests. If your memory turns out to be errorfree after 7 full passes then follow Option 2 of this tutorial:

SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker
