    Decided to re-run the verifier now that the driver in question was deleted, still got the BSOD - I noticed when I was in safe mode, my computer was running at a proper speed (1GB/8GB), if that gives any more information.

    You have a lot of processes running, they would be eating up your ram!

    Its down to personal preference but i would say 50-60 max!

    Have a look at your start up programs and services.

    ^ Those are all the ones I have running right now - they don't add up to over 700MB, but my computer's running at 3.3GB and the fan's running pretty noticeably. Is that normal?
