Windows 7 Ultimate x64

No problem Pollo,

I have a question, when you installed the drivers for the ati card you didn't install the catalyst control suite did you? You may just have a bad install Pollo cause all the errors I'm seeing in the event viewer is unbelievable. You would be better off doing a clean install by wiping the drive and stuff. Your windows installer is not installing your software correctly because it is corrupt or something and the only way you can fix it is through a clean install in this tutorial use the "CLEAN ALL" command to wipe you disk and get it ready for a fresh install. Since you system is only 3 weeks old I would suggest this cause you have just to much stuff going wrong to fix without doing it from scratch:

Disk - Clean and Clean All with Diskpart Command

after you wipe the drive follow this guide to a clean install and setting up the partition correctly for your computer even if you don't have an ssd this is the best way to set up a partition:

SSD Alignment

after you have done that reinstall the operating system..

Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit

Ouch... That doesn't sound good
I will try that. And, if it doesn't work, I will completely replace my PC, because I am really tired of this BSoD/Kernel Panic crap that is affecting both my Mac and Windows partitions. I was also thinking about downgrading to Win7 32 bit, and replacing my power supply, but we'll see how it goes with the clean install.
By the way, thank you very much for all the help you've given me! I really appreciate it!
