very strange your system ,run checkdisk on boot up (choose all options) Check Disk - chkdsk - Vista Forums

If it doesn't solve problem too,you can try repair install -no more idea...

Repair install? Is that booting from win7 disk and doing it from there? Cause I was going to do that the last time I restored but thought it might reformat my hdd.

It is all strange though. I've had this computer for almost a year and it's only been since I put win 7 on here(about four months ago) that the bsod's started happening. I doubt very much it is windows and more likely some 3rd party program playing funny buggers. Crazy stuff..

Problem solved.. Did a repair install and it fixed everything. All my setting are there and programs intact. Installed update(KB2286198) and rebooted to a fully healthy working computer. Thanks for the ace advice and helping me out with this. Much appreciated. X100
