No BSOD so far... I kept the computer transfering files overnight and is still running. Hope it keep this way!!!

Still not marking as solved... lets see what happens for the next days. Thanks again!
I see. Now you can understand the difference between MSE, MBAM compared to Avast and Spybot.

Observe a few weeks more before marking as solved. :)

Hi.. I think I can already mark it as solved. I did a lot of of stuff in the computer lately and no problems at all.

But.... my computer is much slower than it used to be. I believe that the Asus softwares were doing any kind of overclock somehow.

So... Im inclined to do a light overclock since I the 2600k seems to make it easy to do it and I have a pretty good cooler... whats your opinion about it ? Is there any begginers guide you recommend ?

Overclocking may not make you rig faster. I would start by raising you CPU multiplier by a factor of one and run it to see if it's stable, OCing is a good cause of BSOD, had several. If so, back down on what you changed.
You will have to fiddle with the CPU and chipset voltages too.

There is an overclocking here at SF you can ask question, many are better than I am at it. Overclocking and Case Mods - Windows 7 Forums
