Windows 7: BSODs, freezing and crashing daily, especially after startup.

BSODs, freezing and crashing daily, especially after startup.

As the title says, I've been having all sorts of BSODs, freezes, and crashes for several months now. Its gradually gotten worse to the point where it happens daily, though it tends to happen roughly 5 minutes after starting up the computer or waking it from sleep. I'm completely clueless as to what's going on and I'd really appreciate it if someone could help me out here.

Enable windows firewall.

Finish with the above steps and post back with any results.

I'd remove it if that worked with my 32-bit system . Any particular program for that?

Okay, I removed AVG and downloaded Microsoft Security Essentials(thanks for that, by the way). Windows Firewall was already enabled, but if you have any suggestions on settings I wouldn't mind tinkering with it.

In the meantime I'll see if I get anymore BSODs/crashes/etc and report them.

Yup, I try to update whatever I can. I meant for Windows Firewall in particular though.

But yes...how we wait.

No need to do anything with windows firewall,just leave it run in the recommended settings.

For now,work,play as usual and post back with any results.

Well I turned my computer on after it had been off all night, and nothing happened so I thought I might be okay. But had to go to college and when I turned it back on hours later I was hit with about 4 or 5 different things. The first was a BSOD saying "Driver IRQL not less than or equal" about 10 minutes after startup. I was using Firefox, Skype and Windows Live Messenger at the time. The 2nd issue was a freeze about 1 minute after my computer restarted. The last 2 or 3 were all BSODs saying "Memory Management".

I don't know if my computer saved any info from those crashes but I uploaded new dumps in this post just in case. I'll update my original post too.
