Blue screen and lagging ... Reason for worry?

  1. After installing some new out-of-the-box ram I noticed my computer was faster that day (as expected), but the next day, as i was on the web and had a scanner running, I noticed that browser was locking up periodically. It came to the point where my whole screen locked up and then I got a blue screen.

    Since then I haven't had another blue screen, however my computer has been acting extremely sluggish at times similar to before I got the blue screen (but to a lesser degree).

    What do I do so I can remove this laggy ... ness?

    Programs running before blue screen: Avast (latest version) and flock the web browser by mozilla.

    OS: Windows XP

    specs: Pentium D CPU 2.80GHz and 1.5 9 (as of now)

    What is the Blue Screen error code and does it also list a driver.

    How old is the system and please give us you hardware specs plus internet security.
