I forgot to mention that the other 2 programs installed on all of these systems are Microsoft Security Essentials, and LogMeIn Pro. Both of those also heavily affect the system and drivers and may be causing it. I'm thinking to uninstall MSE on 5 of the computers (and use something else like Avira or AVG), uninstall Logmein on 5 of the computers (and use something like teamviewer), and on the remaining 5, get someone to remove the additional 8GB of RAM. I would then leave it for a week or two and see which set of 5 doesn't have any BSOD's.

My question is, how can I easily determine when the last BSOD was? Is there a specific code in the event logs which will tell me this?

Thanks. I really appreciate the advice on this forum.
Agree with writhziden, MSE is the least likely to have compatibility issues with Windows 7.
I wouldn't install Avira or AVG.

Uninstalling Logmein, is worth trying.

Best chance is taking out the added 8GB of RAM.
Running memtest86+ would be helpful but, if not possible, take the 2x4GB RAM cards out for testing.

Adding that much RAM can cause instability, not to mention mixing RAM brands/models/frequencies.
Does the Optiplex 990 allow you to adjust RAM settings, voltages and timings?
Adding that much RAM will frequently require a voltage bump, to the IMC and DRAM settings.

If it does run stable with the additional 8GB removed, you can test by removing the original 4GB and installing the 8GB kit.
If it's stable, that may be the best way to proceed.
