Hi all

Basically since yesterday my PC has been having issues. I first got a BSOD which stated it was due to memory management. I reboot the PC and it ran for a bout 5 mins before happening again. This continued to happen and then stopped briefly. I tried to do a windows update in between, however half way through it crashed with CI.dll and then on startup with a couple of .sys files showing up on the BSODs. Eventually it fired back up however, when it did, the Chrome preferences were gone and it stated that Windows was not a genuine copy. To try and solve the .sys problems I used a Pro upgrade disk (as I had a key spare). This seemed to stop the system related BSODs however Windows still continued to tell me the copy of windows was not genuine. I therefore tried to activate my copy of windows however after I input my key, during activation the Memory Management BSOD returned. I tried this several times but no dice. I therefore thought it might be a virus, however as Norton Scans, it crashes at a specific point with the Memory Management BSOD. Again I tried this several times but no luck.
I then tried to reinstall windows but as that fires up, the BSOD occurs. I removed the OS HDD and tried to run the setup again and it seems to work, so it makes me think there is a virus or fault on the HDD.

I am completely perplexed to what is happening and would very much appreciate some help.

Here is the summary of the specs of the machine from Speccy:

Unzip downloaded file and double click on BlueScreenView.exe file to run the program.
When scanning is done, go Edit>Select All.
Go File>Save Selected Items, and save the report as BSOD.txt.
Open BSOD.txt in Notepad, copy all content, and paste it into your next reply.
