Windows 7: BSODs and program shutdowns, seemingly at random

BSODs and program shutdowns, seemingly at random

After having recently contracted a virus of some sort, I've been experiencing various issues with my PC, despite having removed the infection and having reinstalled a bunch of drivers. I've run a couple of virus/malware cscans as well as system &registry cleaners but so far, nothing has helped.

Currently, my browser (firefox) as well as numerous other programs(winamp, the gimp, video players, etc.) shut down at odd moments, seemingly without provocation, and occasionally the entire system shuts down with a BSOD (IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL).

Shutdowns/BSODs happening seemingly at random.
My computer just randomly shuts itself off, then turns back on as if it's rebooting, but nothing happens. This has happened while playing League of Legends/WoW, also while doing random things such as surfing the net, watching youtube, and sometimes rarely on start up. It has only a couple...

So Many BSODs and some random shutdowns :/
I've just had so many BSODs and some random shutdowns. I can't be specific when some of these happen, it can be anytime. I've gotten a diversity of error codes, but mostly 0x0124. I don't know too much about computer stuff. But I have tried reinstalling windows, replaced my GPU, my RAM, and...
