I have a pc since 2007 with the following characteristics:
Processor - Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 Box;
Motherboard - Asus P5K Deluxe WiFi-AP
Mem Ram- OCZ DDR2 4GB PC2-6400 Gold GX XTC 5-5-5-12
Internal Harddrive - Seagate 500GB SATAII 16MB
Graphics- Sapphire HD2900XT 512MB
DVD/CD - LG DVD-RW GSA-H44N 18X
Tower - Thermaltake Soprano DX Black
Power Source - LC-Power 850W Arkangel V.2.2 140mm
Monitor - Samsung 206BW
SO - Windows 7 64bits
Earlier this year it started freezing when running new games and the fans made a lot of noise. After a while it started freezing all the time so I decided to clean it up. It had tons of dust that I removed and I even applied thermal paste MX3 to the processor. Everything went well for a few months but now the freezing has restarted. Basically, I turn it on and it freezes while doing small stuff like opening firefox or steam whithin a minutes. Normally the screen goes black but the lights in the tower stay on and the fans keep working. I have to manually reboot and then it just works normally with no more freezings.
This is a temperature scan that I made just before one of the freezes:
Sometimes a blue screen appears and the following error is issued:

I have all the lastest drivers installed.
Do you know the origin of the problem? How may I handle it?
Is it a software or hardware issue?
Thank you very much for all your help!
