Alrighty, I went ahead and installed those two programs. Is there anything I need to do with them? Or are they just supposed to run in the background and hopefully make my system more stable.

Those are drivers . Now we wait to see if we get anymore BSOD with F4 in it . The F4 is related to hard drives .

If you get any BSOD please open up a new thread in the BSOD section . Trying to keep viruses and BSOD in their own sections . Not trying to be rude .

I understand, sure. I'll start a new thread there if I have any more problems. Thank you guys so much for your help. And I guess I'll go ahead and mark this as solved since I'm pretty much sure we got rid of the virus (since both MSE and MSS (and everything else I've run) have come up clean).

Unable to get rid of virtool.win32/obfuscator.XZ
Hello, I'm a new member. I've got this nasty virus and I cannot get rid of it. Microsoft security essentials keeps detecting it every time I run a complete scan even though it says it is in quarentine. It does not detect it in safe mode. Maybe it is a rootkit? Avira detects it as a hidden...
