A "dump" is a dumping of the information in memory to file (that can be analyzed with the appropriate tools). It's either a program or a system dump (generally). The program dump contains info about the program that crashed. The system dump is usually created when the system crashes and Windows shuts the computer down to prevent damage.
These can be caused by many different things - bad hardware, bad drivers or software, or viruses. Since the AVG is out of date, I'd first suspect a virus. The error messages will help us figure this out (FYI - here's a guide on how to use Event Viewer to locate the errors: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/40108/how-to-use-event-viewer/
If you're unable to run antivirus scans, then I'd consider reformatting the system and starting over. The reason for this is that you'll likely spend a lot of time trying to fix this - and it may be easier to just format the drive and have a fresh start.
