Alright, so I'll start from when I started noticing problems:

First of all, the computer was shut down after a windows update. After restarting, everything started up fine but I was unable to connect to the internet (wireless worked) properly; as it would give me certification errors. Restarted the modem, that wasn't it. What I found is that my date was incorrect! So, I manually switched it to the correct (little above in seconds) time and date, then ran Ccleaner and deleted everything internet related. Working internet.


This event caused me to take extra precaution, so as I was looking more though a topic on this site, they mentioned to the fellow to run a scan with GMER. I followed the link, disabled internet, antivirus program, disabled said options in program, and ran it. After a good 5-7 minutes, it blue screened.


First, the time reset.

Then, the blue screen while scanning.

Something seems suspicious.


If one of you could help me, step-by-step, find out the cause of this, I will ever be grateful for your time and resources spent.

That fault with the time and date being incorrect.  That was the BIOS date, a default when the CMOS battery that holds the BIOS info when the machine is shut off and keeps the clock running.  The battery can create all kinds of intermittent, non repeatable failures when it gets weak or dies completely.  usually a coin type cell mounted on the MOBO.
