I was a bit confused 'cause of this "If you want to create a CD-ROM that you can start your computer from, you must use additional software to create this CD-ROM from the ISO 9660 image, which is named Windiag.iso. To create this CD-ROM from the image, you can use the Cdburn.exe utility..." from the Windows Memory Diagnostic web page.
Anyway, I used Nero 7 to burn an image file, ran the test, 3 passes standard, and 6 passes extended (6 times because I left the computer while it was runing), and it didnt find any errors. I ran the kaspersky web scan, but it only found the 3 files in Norton's virus chest (but not the ones in Avast's, strange?), and since the first time I meet the blu screen I've run adaware, spyboot, superantispyware, AVG antispyware, Norton antivirus full scan, and now Im scaning with avast (thorough scan), so I guess my PC is not infected? At least not from one of the most common kinds of viruses.
"If that still doesn't fix it, then I'd have to suspect that it's a driver issue (unless you've added some new hardware recently)." (Usasma)
I added (in adition to the two new RAM modules) a new video card a week or so before the first blue screen. Can this cause any problems? It requires more power than my power suply can deliver (in terms of watt), but the support at the company I bought it from said that wheter I could use it or not depended on the quality of my power supply, and not just what it can deliver in watt. It has worked fine, and the last time Mr Blue appeared, I was not runing any graphic intensive programs. And therefore, I guess, the power suppply should be able to supply the card because of the card's low workload and temerature, which in turn means that this cant be the problem?? Anyway, Im thinking about upgrading the power supply.
Im just a bit curious, why should I clean my temporary files? (Nice to have a better understanding)
