My conclusion now would be that it was 1 of them that caused the BSOD and then it would be the driver of the offending part (maybe even the HW itself) !

after a hell of a lot of testing over a few months, I figured that it was actually two factors. one was a dodgy stick of RAM, but the other was a virus scanner - AVAST. because they were both causing BSOD's indepently of each other it took a really long time to figure out both of them. everything has been running smoothly now in the BSOD area for quite some time though so ill keep my fingers crossed.

It autoupdates and all.
email scan included.

Hmmm..........I run AVAST on my machine at home without any problems whatsoever. That's not to say it couldn't be causing a problem, though.

yeah i highly recomend it to be honest every one else except me. every one else i know that runs it is fine, but for some reason my machine screws up. maybes its because im running dual processors or just some specific hardware fault.
