My PC suddenly has failed to be able to play video (streaming or from hard drive) or audio (streaming or hard drive) without garbling/scratching/skipping/freezing, and then going to a blue screen of death.

I have identified the approximate day or so when this started and when I did the following:
the latest XP updates
the latest .NET framework update
downloaded a free video editing program called lightworks
silverlight update
possible directx update

I first tried to do a system restore to several dates prior to these events but each time it failed "unable to restore".

I un-installed lightworks
re-installed directx

I ran malwarebytes full scan and nothing was found.

Hello and welcome -
Please Re-install Direct X Here <<==
Direct X is required to help you operate many games etc. There was no DirectX update that I knew of in the last updates -
There was a Silverlight and a .NET frame work update that caused minor concerns -

Thank You -

For the first time, you’ll be able to download the Free and Pro versions of Lightworks for Windows, which have been completely re-engineered to run on modern, multicore hardware. You’ll be able to use the same software that Hollywood editors use to craft films like The King’s Speech and Hugo.

Please note that the "Free" version of Lightworks for download was only a Beta (Untested) version and not a full Release version
