    Try turning DEP off, here is the method to do that:

    1. Open a Command Prompt with "Run as Administrator" by right clicking on it in Start/Programs/Accessoriess
    2. Enter this Command: bcdedit.exe /set {current} nx AlwaysOff
    3. It will give you message about success
    4. close command prompt and restart to make it take effect

    Then try to run a software which is giving you this error and tell me what happens

    Also in your GetSystemInfo logs; the kasperkey parser found these; I'll advise to erase them.

    Scanned folders

    C:\Users\sirish\AppData\Local\Temp\021310152847\ [1]
    => C:\Users\sirish\AppData\Local\Temp\021310152847\V90Check.dll

    C:\Users\sirish\AppData\Local\Temp\NERO1003370\ [1]
    => C:\Users\sirish\AppData\Local\Temp\NERO1003370\Toolbar.exe

    C:\Users\sirish\AppData\Local\Temp\{AC76BA86-1033-F400-7760-000000000003}\ [1]
    => C:\Users\sirish\AppData\Local\Temp\{AC76BA86-1033-F400-7760-000000000003}\RunTime.msi

    Turn the DEP on again; by going through the instructions in reverse. Also do you remember what if any changes you may have done, after which you started getting this error ?

    1) run the disk cleanup to empty the TEMP areas
    from an Admin Login

    run->cleanmgr
    wait for it to complete
    click OK to prompt and OK to are you sure?​

    Also run from the user = sirish

    hmm , everytime i formatted my computer it use to freeze[eventhough my RAM is 3GB] for sometime like when i using browser, playing a song in media player and when a install any application it works prefectly for some week or something and then this problem starts , its not application specific it happens with almost everything , i even tried installing different applications other than previous ones when i freshly installed windows.
    and everytime a common application i used to install was norton ghost ,it used to crash with that floating point error.
