Windows 7: BSOD random & recurring using utorrent wmp classic or several programs

BSOD random & recurring using utorrent wmp classic or several programs

I'm getting BSOD somewhat randomly and frequently. It always seems to happen when I'm running UTorrent and Windows Media Player Classic or several programs at one time. I built my PC so I know it will have more stability issues than a typical PC but I get BSOD more frequently than I should. Frequently the driver at fault is ntoskrnl.exe, tcpip.sys, or ntfs.sys. Any help would be appreciated.

Your BSOD appears to be due to an unspecified hardware problem. Here is a list of tests
I would start with the hard drive, since NTFS was mentioned (could be hard drive)
I would then go to memory as it is the most common hardware problem

Since you do use a torrent, make an anti virus scan and then download and make a full scan with malwarebytes.
