Windows 7: Freezing, BSOD and Skype and Firefox constantly crashing?

Freezing, BSOD and Skype and Firefox constantly crashing?

I've been getting BSODs for quite some time now, random freezing and now Skype and Firefox have started to crash randomly when before it was perfectly fine.

I think it might be a hardware issue but I'm unsure at this moment, I was hoping to know if any of you guys could help me find out. Thanks for your time.

I used Driver Verifier and as soon as I restarted it started BSODing instantly, couldn't even get into Windows.

No idea what's wrong, should I do a full reinstall?
