My computer has decided to start freezing and spitting errors at me today...while trying to figure out what is going on, and restarting multiple times due to the computer freezing, I got the wonderful BSOD. Dumps are attached.

Never fully installed Norton, got a BSOD in the middle of installation. Just got another BSOD while running a full MSE scan.

Well parts of Norton are embedded in your system, as evidenced by the .dmp files.

Try using RevoUninstaller to remove any remnants.

Ok, I'm pretty sure all traces of Norton are now gone...left a full MSE scan running over night and woke up to see that I got another BSOD. New .zip is attached. :/

Your eventlog is riddled with the above errors. BCM42RLY is a Broadcom adapter driver. I recommend uninstalling, then reinstalling it.

I decided to look into how to read minidump files and saw a lot of the BSOD were caused by my memory. So I ran MemTest86 and saw that one of my ram sticks was the problem. I took that out and now my computer is running fine. I also fixed the Broadcom error btw. Thanks for your help. :)
