Not...if you think that every BSOD is the result of malware
. Any number of things can result in a BSOD or series of such, with hardware/driver problems ranking up there with damaged files, IMO.
You might try running BlueScreenView - http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/blue_screen_view.html
Double-click on BlueScreenView.exe file to run the program.
When scanning is done, Edit/Select All...then File/Save Selected Items. Save the report as BSOD.txt.
Open BSOD.txt in Notepad, copy all content, and paste it into your next reply.
