Go ahead and re-run Adwcleaner to see if it comes up clean. Let SAS clean what it found.

Both have been run fully, both cleaned up some errors. Re-ran Chkdisk as well, still good.

No more BSODs? Is Steam a necessity for playing games? It seems to be involved in many BSOD threads as is iTunes.

Right, so I ran Memtest86+ last night, and received an error. I will be following the steps on that thread to narrow down where the error is coming from.

I have ceased to run with Steam, however the BSOD still occurs as of 22/12/2013, just much less frequent 3-4 hours of sitting AFK as opposed to 15 minutes of actual gametime before i contacted Sevenforums.

So i have been trying to run the Memtest86+ program to isolate the ram stick with errors, but my BIOS will not boot without 2 sticks, and 2 slots, installed. This problem is making the testing take 2+ days, and i only know for sure that 2 of 4 sticks are clear, as well as two slots.
Any advice for fixing this?

Right. So with my computer open, I am looking at the slots for the RAM cards.
There are 4 slots, and as such, 4 cards.
Scenario 1: RAM card #1 inserted in RAM slot #1:
When i press the power button on my PC, my fans start running, the hard drive boots up, and my screen, keyboard and mouse all do not respond, and even after computer is untouched for several hours, Windows/BIOS does not load. As well, my headphones connected through the main USB ports light up, indicating they are running.
Scenario 2: RAM card #1 and #2 inserted in RAM slots #1 and 2, respectively:
When power button is pressed, fans start running, hard disk boots up, welcome screen follows approximately 4 The problem I am having is that the computer will not boot with a singular RAM card installed, meaning i have to install 2 cards to get a response from Memtest86+, resulting in the tests taking twice as long.

Have you tried with the RAM sticks in slots 3 and 4? The memtest is meant to test all RAM stick at once, then if there are errors start doing the single ones in each slot. I have 16GB, 2x8GB, which takes memtest 18 hours to do 8 passes.
