Well I'm having an issue with windows 7 that I'd guess was a virus, but could end up to be a corrupt file. I was on my computer, and all of a sudden my wireless card died, and I shut down my computer for the night because I didn't really feel like dealing with it. I started up my computer this morning and left it there for about 10 minutes or so, when I came back to it I couldn't start any programs(I could navigate through SOME but not all options in the control panel). It gave me an error that the programs just couldn't be started(I don't have more specific details on the error but I'll edit it when I do). And after a while it just blue screened, did a physical memory dump, and restarted. After the restart I was able to run programs for about 5-10 minutes, but after that any attempt to do anything with a program resulted in an error saying something about an attempt to make a fatal error and the program needs to close. A couple minutes after, it blue screened and did the physical memory dump. I started it up into safe mode after that, but as soon as I started into safe mode windows explorer stopped responding, restarted, and then the blue screen happened yet again. At this point I don't want to touch the thing unless I get some guidance. There are no system restore points unfortunately because the I installed the hard drive with 7 just over a week ago or so(Also nothing antivirus related except for MBAM....*sigh*). I have an alternate hard drive with Vista that I can access and as far as I can tell it's working. Any help anyone can offer is greatly appreciated, and I'd be happy to provide you all with more information when I get it.

EDIT: I am now unable to start windows 7 altogether. It BSODs on startup.
This is not a virus, it's an error. If a mod wants to move this/delete this, go ahead.
