    There are a lot of reasons for a BSOD that aren't malware related. But if the AV found over 2000 threats, you have a problem!

    If you would like us to check the system for malware, please follow the steps in the Preliminary Virus and Malware Removal thread HERE.

    hi there, cant get windows to run long enough now to do the scans, i did the recovery this morning, and as soon as it said preparing desktop i get the BSOD, going to try reinstalling win7 tomorrow, and hopefully i can get somewhere, did the check on this pc too earlier on.

    You might want to check the Event Viewer> see if there are any Errors that might be hardware related. If the problem is from hardware, the reinstall probably won't make a difference.

    If you decide it would be worth the trip to check the Event Viewer, you will find instructions and screen shots for Win 7 here:
