Homebuilt crashing

I am being plagued by constant crashes for over 6 months now. I was getting the BSOD, but seemed to have resolved that. (driver issue). Now it totally locks while using WIN media center. Also locks using VLC but only when playing .MKV format.

My sys contans-

GeForce 210
4gig of crucial ddr3
AMDx3 3.0ghz
1tb seagate hd
corsair liquid cooling for processor
1x 120mm fan
2x 80mm fan
LG Blu-Ray
MSI 785 mobo

Does it crash in clean boot mode?
How to troubleshoot a problem by performing a clean boot in Windows Vista or in Windows 7

If no follow instructions

If yes
Does it crash in safe mode?

Your answer will be a big help trying to diagnose.

It does not do it in safe mode or in clean boot. How do I tell what is causing it?

How did you find it, with Clean boot?

If so, you can
uninstall
or see

if there is new versioin
or
update drivers.

Bottom line you must uninstall or try to update.
