I am running Windows Vista, and I was running Vista before my reinstall.
About two weeks ago I started running into several issues with my computer. After mass scanning my computer with several programs and removing quite a bit of things, I was told by someone that I had corrupted system files, so a reinstall of Windows or System Restore to factory settings was necessary. I originally wanted to do the system restore, but I have no CD nor was there a restore point, as this wasn't originally my PC. So, I went with reinstalling Windows. When I reinstalled, I format the C:\, however reinstalling only fixed most of the issues. Since reinstalling, I have gotten several BSODs. They only seem to happen if I am running a scan from Malwarebytes or if I have a certain amount of programs open, CPU/memory too high. I don't quite know which of the last 3 it is, because it BSOD's me before too randomly.
There are other issues that still persist, but the instructions say one problem one thread, so I figured I'd go with the worst of them.
I downloaded a program called WhoCrashed, and was told to run it after I got a BSOD and it'd tell me why it crashed, but every time I run it, nothing comes up. I also have Avast! running as well as Windows Firewall & Defender.
