Not sure if I am infected since antimalwarebytes, AVG, and Superantispyware does not seem to be pulling up any red flags, but occasionally my computer will blue screen and then reboot on its own or I have to do it manually. Seems to happen once or twice every three or four days. I am usually playing music on the comp and browsing the net or gaming when it happens but occasionally it will just do this when nothing is open at all... like in the middle of the night. Any suggestions..?

I am thinking that it may be related somehow to the media files. The Pattern seems to happen mostly when I am playing music from frostwire, media player, google music manager or pandora... I just downloaded a pandora desktop app today and blue screen hit probably ten times... continues to do so after I removed the app but not as often... used ccleaner and defraggler... Antimalware pulled up a clean slate... Avg is also clean... I could be wrong but there seems to be a pattern with the media files.

Thus far, it does not appear that you have an infection. What is your operating system?

Not sure if this would help... I downloaded something called a Blue Screen Viewer from cnet.com... everytime it crashes it takes a report... Here is a brief summary of the last couple of crashes...
