Windows 7: Consistent BSOD after about 2 mins of comp use

Consistent BSOD after about 2 mins of comp use

Been having BSOD issues for some time, but haven't had time to get around to fixing. Have read the instructions to report dmp files here, hoping I did everything correctly.

Computer runs fine in safe mode, but BSOD returns every time I boot up normal. Usually after about 5 mins of use. No drivers identified on blue screen, in fact it locks up during crash dump.

Any help greatly appreciated. Willing to wipe comp clean and reinstall everything if necessary. Also prepared to scrap comp and purchase new.

Working with Acer Aspire 5734z-4836, approx 3-4 yrs old.

Thanks!

McAfee is a frequent cause of BSOD's. I see that you have MSE already installed. So please remove McAfee.
Code:
Start Menu\Programs\McAfee	Public:Start Menu\Programs\McAfee	Public
------------------------
Microsoft Security Essentials & the Free version of Malwarebytes, update and make full scans separately:

Do not start the trial version of MalwareBytes

thanks for the list of stuff koolkat.

i did get a BSOD after reboot following the Disk Check step, but since finishing all the scans, i've been running for 2 days without any BSOD.

fingers crossed for the moment, will let you know if there's any relapse.

thanks again for the service you all provide. much appreciated.

Turn off display after 10 mins; lock desktop after 30 mins?
