Windows 7 crashes while browsing then restarts on its own.?

Q: Windows 7 crashes while browsing then restarts on its own.?

Computer will shut down when browsing the web then restart on its own. This started about 6 months ago, just once in a while, but seems to be more frequent now. Any ideas on what my problem is? My event log for two days is listed below. Can anyone give me some suggestions on why my computer is showing all of these errors?

Preferred Solution: Windows 7 crashes while browsing then restarts on its own.?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I've tried to get help from the IT guys here at work and they don't know. Had the cable guy out and he doesn't know what the problem is.

Since I'm at work, I can safely use the internet and not get shut down. So please try and help me before I go home today.

For the past month and ?, while browsing the internet (rarely even gets to browse) my computer will restart. This does NOT happen while working in SW apps such as MS Office, only when I get onto the net.

I did a send report when the error message pops up after restarting. This is what I can remember:

BCCode: a 000000E8 BCP1: 0000001 BCP2: 0000002 BCP3: 0000003 BCP4: E08BB8?? OSVer: 5_1_2600

Then the error details:

I looked on www.support.microsoft.com and the closest I found was due to the ATI Ratheon Video Adapter. I haven't installed any hardware.

The problem actually occurred when all of a sudden my ethernet connection stopped working and I had to connect my cable modem using the USB connection.

Hope this is enough information for someone to give me a clue.

This happened recently after my sister downloaded something from the internet, and when I opened the folder to transfer it to her flash drive, a notification popped up telling me that, "Windows Explorer has crashed," and then it restarts (not the computer, just explorer. It sort of "refreshes" the desktop), then loads, and then crashes again.

I can still use my laptop normally from adjacent accounts, and when I tried deleting the file (the source of all of this, I'm assuming) it says that I need the permission of my main account, even though this account that I am currently using is also and administrator.

Can someone give me a little help? If there is none to be found I can use this side account for a while until something can be done, but it is incredibly inconvenient.

I am using Windows 7 currently.

If I open this certain folder of mine, Windows crashes. Anyone know how to fix this or why it happening? I have a lot of files in that folder so I cannot simply delete it. It contains many subfolders, many .avi files, many .mkv files and many .rar/.zip files. Some of these are in subfolders while some are not. I'm using Windows Vista Home Premium.

Windows Xp crashs during windows loading screen and reboots. Displays a blue screen with no errors on it only the stop information, 0x00000024 (0x001902FE, 0xBA52F380, 0xBA52f07c,0x8AD5980F). This blue screen stays up for less than a second, needed to video record it to get the numbers. Windows doesn't load in normal mode, or any of the safe modes. I have tried chkdsk /r and /p. Bootcfg /scan fails, and /rebuild also fails. I have also cleared Cmos on my motherboard, which didn't work either. I also tested the ram, tried booting with 1 of 3 sticks in 3 times rotating the sticks, I wouldn't think all 3 would fail at the same time. The HD does show serial numbers tho and appears to be working. This all started when i was running a virus scanner, it crashed, and the problems started. Any help is appreciated, I have yet to try fixmbr, and a repair install. The fixmbr says it could cause a problem with the HD, that is the reason I haven't tried it yet. Any suggestions or help is appreciated. Thanks

I have a problem that started yesterday. Every 30 seconds Windows Explorer (not the browser) crashes, then restarts. I run Xmarks within FireFox, I thought this was the problem because Xmarks as of yesterday asks me every 40 seconds if I want to sync my bookmarks, if I choose cancel, Windows Explorer will crash then restart.

When Firefox is closed, Explorer continues to crash and restart, almost every 30-35 seconds. I have Windows 8.1 up to date, with all the latest updates, FireFox is up to date. As of writting this post, Windows Explorer has crashed and restarted (5) times.

Hi Guys,

This issue has been driving me nuts for the past few months and I've found no solution as yet.

Windows explorer (windows 7 Home Premium, SP1, 64 bit OS) will frequently crash with seemingly no pattern (opening directories, scrolling through files, copying files etc) even when running in safe mode. I've tried various malware applications and hard drive
checks, but to no avail.

Event viewer gave the following information after the last crash.

Ever sence i downloaded a file i havnt been able to boot windows 7 normally, safe mode, debug mode, or any mode u can think of. It just shows the welcome logo screen, crashes, and then restarts. If I choose the option to 'not auto restart if system encounters a problem"( via th F8 boot menu), same thing except that i get a BSOD. I have tried system recovery, the only option that works with out an error is command prompt. Now, to the real problem lol (If what i had before wasnt a big problem),What I need to know is how to put a hard drive back into read/write mode and back online in command prompt. Currently when I run the command "Diskpart" ,after i am in diskpart i run "list disk", it shows my hard drive along with another Disk, "disk 1". Now i don't know what "disk 1" is I think it is part of the virus but it has an * next to it when my main hard drive "disk 0" doesn't have the *. Also my big problem is that it shows the status of my main hard rive to be invalid and is currently dynamic. So how do I make it not dynamic and put it back online in command prompt?

A:Hard drive offline? Windows crashes and restarts

Oh also obviously when I tried to reinstall windows 7 with the disk it didn't notice any drives and asked me to load a driver. Which is beacuse it is currently invalid and is dynamic. So plz dont tell me to try recovery mode beacause it wont work, If am going to fix it it is going to be done in command prompt. Also lost data is not an issue here i dont care if I have to reformatt my hard Drive as long as i can get it validated so i can install windows 7 back on it.

Hi. Today morning I started my PC and just after the start up Windows Explorer crashed and restarted and then did (and does) the same every 10-15 seconds. I googled the problem and did following steps (not in the same order as below) which didn't resolve the issue:

- restarted few times and switched off PC completely;
- tried to fix registry with Vit Registry Fix;
- did SFC /SCANNOW and it finished with information that some issues couldn't be fixed;
- ran Malwerbytes with no malware found;
- did a full Kaspersky Internet Security scan with no viruses found;
- did a clean boot (all non-windows services were not used) and it still crashed;
- did a diagnostic start up (so only basic windows services were used) and it helped;
- I wanted to do a system restore but Windows doesn't have data on any restores, meaning I probably haven't started the service (doesn't it make it automatically?);

Other info:
- system works fine in Safe Mode and diagnostic start up, thus eliminating issue with external applications;
- when in normal mode and crashing I looked at processes appearing and disappearing and found out that at the crash process the file dllhost.exe disappears then and shortly after appears back (it may or may not be relevant);
- I didn't do any major updates yesterday (only updated Steam platform and installed one new game);
- I can't do perfmon /report as in Safe mode it doesn't display anything and in normal mode I don't have enough time to start the applicati... Read more

A:Windows explorer crashes (and restarts) on system start-up.

Just an update - based on my experience with "fixing" the system, I've decided to back up the data and make a fresh installation (no point in loosing more time on trying to resolve the issue but just spend the time on new system and at least enjoy a faster Windows for some time). Funny though that a year ago I had to do the same due to some dll corrupt file (it was much worse then). I really love Microsoft!

P.S. Thanks for reading this thread, if you think you may add something (so in the future if someone looks for info on how to fix it) feel free to add some advice.

This does not happen all the time, maybe one out of ten boots the computer gets to the 'Starting Windows' screen and crashes/restarts. This happens just before you see the animation of the colored dots beginning to form the Windows Logo, but the 'Starting Windows' writing is displayed...then it crashes/restarts. Windows knows this is happening because it wants to check out the operating system and after taking forever to do so finds nothing. I do not see any error reports in Event Viewer that seem to pertain to this problem and Windows does not show a BSOD either. Does anyone have any ideas how to troubleshoot this problem?

Ok had a look through your foiles ad all of your dumps point to a driver used for the Jenoptik software/device that you have installed/use:

*** WARNING: Unable to verify timestamp for FireCamJ203.sys
*** ERROR: Module load completed but symbols could not be loaded for FireCamJ203.sys
looking at the time stamp on the driver we can see that it in fact predates windows 7 and should be updated:

Unfortunately I have no Idea where you would get the updates from because a quick look around their site only reveals a download link for their general terms and conditions, nothing about drivers or software, so you may need to contact the company directly.

I have a problem with my machine I've been battling for months now. It will just randomly restart and I could be doing anything. It has happened when browsing the web, playing games, and even when the motherboard logo shows up during startup.
It never seems to crash when running Prime95 or OCCT stress tests.
What I've done:
-Re-installed windows twice
-Purchased new motherboard
-Purchased new CPU cooler (from air into liquid)
-Purchased new GPU (HD7950 to GTX780)
-Purchased SSD
-Monitoring software showed PSU 12v rail running at 10.8v when stressed. Checked 4 pin molex connector with voltmeter and it measured 12.2v and it dropped to 12.1v under stress.
-Changed the case, thought it was a short circuit somewhere.
-Run multiple stress tests which did not cause a crash.
-Ran Prime95 and Battlefield 4 at the same time. No crash
-Updated GPU drivers
-Updated motherboard drivers
-Can't update BIOS, scared computer will restart during the flash. My motherboard revision is 1.01 and
-I've run memtest for 5 hours, but I should do it again

Sometimes, instead of a restart, my display will turn off and any sound playing will begin to loop. PC will be unresponsive.
CPU temps reach only about 35 degrees under full load.

A:Random Restarts (Startup, gaming, browsing)

Ouch. A newer, beefier power supply sounds like the solution as it smells like a hardware problem in the power. I would blame the heat if it was just occurring during the last couple of months. Since I have not had anything like this tho, I am guessing. You need to have a rock steady 12V no matter what. If this was a USED power supply, chuck it anyways. I always found that if something was going to fail in a new build, it was always something that I swapped from the old computer to the new one. Memory chips, even a optical drive once! About the only thing I keep on a new build nowadays is the monitor, the keyboard, and the mouse. All the rest is brand new.

Hello, I just bought a Cyberpower PC a few months ago and I have been having issues with randoms restarts and Blue screens. It mostly occurs when I am playing Smite. I have tried various "fixes" but have had no luck.

Thanks! Jordan.

A:BSOD/Random Restarts Playing Smite/browsing

Your recent BSODs are stop 0x124; which is supposed to be a hardware error. So at that point Driver verifier is not needed. Disable it, following the option two of the tutorial: Driver Verifier - Enable and Disable

Daemon Tools, Alcohol 120% and Power Archiver Pro uses SCSI Pass Through Direct (SPTD), which is a well known BSOD causer. Uninstall Daemon Tools at first. Then download SPTD standalone installer from Disk-Tools.com, and execute the downloaded file as guided below :
Double click to open it.
Click this button only:

If it is grayed out, as in the picture, there is no more SPTD in your system, and you just close the window.
Free up the startup. Windows does not need any other program to auto start with it, but the auto start programs often conflicts and causes various problems including BSODs.
Click on the Start button
Type “msconfig (without quotes), click the resulting link. It will open the System Configuration window.
Select the “Startup” tab.
Deselect all items other than the antivirus.
Apply > OK
Accept then restart.
Uninstall Trend Micro. You have MSE installed, and that is enough. Multiple security programs are not a good idea, they clash, and causes issues including BSODs. Use Microsoft Security Essentials as your antivirus (which you already have) with windows inbuilt firewall, and free MBAM as the on demand scanner.
Download, install and update those, and then run full system scans with both of them, one by one.

Now, check for so... Read more

It happens randomly. It happened more when I browsed the web with Firefox, and now it happened the 1st time on Chrome too...
Already checked the RAM with MemTest for DOS overnight (OK)
Stress tested the GPU for 5 minutes at 100C with no artifacts (OK)
Had few bad blocks on my Seagate HDD but fixed it with the Seagate tools for dos (OK !? )
Tested the CPU with Prime95 (OK)
Everything inside the case is clean of dust and all cards have been re-seated after contacts cleaning.
I also formated and re-installed windows 7 and updated all the drivers.

Here is the error details according to WhoCrashed:

This was probably caused by the following module: ntoskrnl.exe (nt+0x4ADE0C)
Bugcheck code: 0x124 (0x0, 0xFFFFFA8004BFA038, 0x0, 0x0)
file path: C:\Windows\system32\ntoskrnl.exe
product: Microsoft? Windows? Operating System
company: Microsoft Corporation
description: NT Kernel & System
Bug check description: This bug check indicates that a fatal hardware error has occurred. This bug check uses the error data that is provided by the Windows Hardware Error Architecture (WHEA).
This is likely to be caused by a hardware problem problem. This problem might be caused by a thermal issue.
The crash took place in the Windows kernel. Possibly this problem is caused by another driver that cannot be identified at this time.

I'm also uploading the required ZIP file.
Any thoughts??

Recently, my computer has started freezing while I'm browsing the web. No BSOD or resetting, it just freezes and I have to hold the power button to get it back.

I don't think it's over heating, or memory or any of that because I can happily play games hour hours with no issues. I can watch films, or streaming media for hours and it's fine. It only crashes while surfing or talking on Steam.

MSI P67C45 (still haven't got my B3 replacement :O)
i5 2500k (standard clock, with the 'turobo boost' ability engaged)
4gb (2x2) G.Skill Ripjaws X (I think. Can't remember freqs but I'll dig it out if somehow important)

On a new computer I installed windows XP pro onto a seagate 200gb sata hard drive. I have a 160 gb western digital IDE hard drive installed. I also installed all windows updates and installed basic software, such as Office XP, McAfee, Firefox, etc.

Whenever I open My Computer or windows explorer and browse through folders, after a little while explorer crashes and then restarts. This also sometimes happens when I open the start menu. Occasionally, Dr Watson postmortem debugger is triggered and the computer freezes until I end the process from the task manager.

Using a windows explorer substitute, ExplorerXP, has no problems when I browse the directories on my hard drives. Any ideas? Does explorer crash with large SATA hard drives?

Hi there people,

I've got a strange problem: any setup window (no matter what installation it is) crashes when I try to select another folder than the default one to install the software in. I already scanned for virusses and spyware, but there were no results. The ironic thing is that just this morning I performed a clean windows-installation...
Ever since I installed nothing special on it but the very generic programs using the default installation directory (i.e. MS Office, Nero, Panda Antivirus, Hitman Pro, WinRAR, Java, Ghost, some drivers for specific hardware which worked fine on this PC before and some Windows-updates).
Does anyone have an idea what could have harmed my system? I appreciate any suggestions.

Thanks in advance

A:Setup crashes when browsing for a folder

Alrighty, I managed to fix the problem myself...
It was the notorious problem with the MS KB908531 patch which caused my setups to lock up when browsing for a different folder. Since Panda Antivirus hid the verclsid.exe from listing in my task manager for some kinda strange reason, I couldn't have noticed it and thus didn't see what was wrong.

Eventually I noticed the verclsid by accident when trying to install firefox (a setup in which the error occured) without Panda running to see whether it made any difference... when it crashed, I noticed all the verclsid's in my task manager and googled for it.

I uninstalled the patch and now I'm awaiting the patch for the patch (which is probably gonna be patched again due to another patch failure sooner or later), while setting up my dual boot with Linux

I have recently experienced some strange behavior on my Win XP Pro machine. I had a 'corrupt or missing' hal.dll file that required a repair in order to start back up. Upon start up things have progressively gotten worse.
-My Windows Firewall would randomly get turned 'Off'
-Google Installer and ViewMgr would 'encounter a problem' and then close

Sensing something was clearly wrong, I rebooted and ran MacAfee. MacAfee found elements of the TDS Trojan which were then deleted. The behavior still persisted.

At present, I cannot go to any websites that offer 'online virus scans'. My browsers (IE and Firefox) say the websites are unavailable. I was finally able to load HiJackThis in safemode after renaming the install file.

I have attached the outputs in Safe Mode and after a Normal Boot up.

I appreciate any help/advice that you may be able to provide. Thank you.

At work and now at home, IE7 started acting weird. I use WinXP Sp3 on both machines, and also IE7. Symptoms: first, right clicking on a link doesn't work; left-clicking and going directly to the link works, but right-clicking produces no menu. When I already have opened some extra tabs, they just say :Blank and "connecting" - but they don't connect and eventually, IE crashes. Today, out of the blue, a lot of tabs popped up (appeared at the top of the window) on their own - with no input from me. They all said :Blank and looked like they were trying to connect, but they never did. And IE crashed. Also, when it first happened at work, I couldn't get IE to close/stop with Task Manager, so I just turned off the computer. When I turned it back on and launched IE7, a screen appeared that was an invittion to update to IE8. It looked pretty bonafide - like a Microsoft screen - not like a virus or a ruse. Anyway, I opted not to upgrade, but my home page had been re-set to Microsoft.com! I reset it to my preference (Google). When I re-started IE7, it was back to Microsoft again, so I re-set again and THAT seemed to work. The symptoms are similar on my home machine (where I am now) - except that I have been able to stop IE7 using the Task Manager, so the weird IE8 thinghasn't happened, but I thought I'd mention that it did on the other computer because it almost seems like a Microsoft problem... But that's for me to find out here, right? Well, here is the DDS.txt log (Sor... Read more

Hi,I have an HP laptop with Windows XP and SP3, using wireless internet. Yesterday I started using the computer and it worked fine, surfing was no problem. After coming back from lunch and waking up the computer from sleeping mode I noticed that web browsing has stopped working - the browser (either Firefox or Internet Explorer) loads and loads and waits for the website, but eventually fails. Skype works fine as does SVN.However when I restart in Safe Mode (as I am in now) web browsing works fine! That is why I am able to post this in the first place.Next, trying to run cmd crashes the whole Windows Explorer environment and restarts the taskbar etc, so I can not get into a DOS "terminal" window to run things like ipconfig.Also, I have noticed that I was previously being forwarded to ad sites as if the browser or DNS has been compromised, and I am sure this is connected to the current problem.I tried to run the DDS.scr software but it just flashed a black window and nothing happened, so I used the HijackThis software instead to create a log. I hope that is equally useful.I also added a GMER log as an attachement.Here is the HijackThis log:Logfile of Trend Micro HijackThis v2.0.2Scan saved at 09:38:02, on 2009-03-03Platform: Windows XP SP3 (WinNT 5.01.2600)MSIE: Internet Explorer v7.00 (7.00.6000.16762)Boot mode: NormalRunning processes:C:\WINDOWS\System32\smss.exeC:\WINDOWS\system32\winlogon.exeC:\WINDOWS\system32\serv...

Any error messages? Sounds malware related to me....

Morning/Afternoon All.

I have a system that runs on windows 7 home premium 64bit SP1, its primarily a storage server but also handles time consuming tasks (and some folding while it idles :D ) .

However for a month or two is has been restarting randomly every day or two. (not a clean shut-down from what i can tell).
I log in to check on it or do something and i'm back at the logon screen instead of the lock screen I usually leave it on.

A Look into the event viewer shows the error as the vague "kernal power - The system has rebooted without cleanly shutting down first. This error could be caused if the system stopped responding, crashed, or lost power unexpectedly."

This error has been getting on my nerves and I thought I better start heavily looking into it this weekend before it creates worse problems like file-system corruption.

Here is the speccy file requested from the sticky on the sub-forum :D .

Thanks Again for any help you awesome people can give,
Will be happy to give any more info/ logs to narrow down this problem.

Sorry for the double post but I noticed something odd.

I just noticed speccy was reporting my SSD at 128C and I double cheaked this with Speedfan. (i'll attemp to walk down there soon and cheak by feel, I view it remotely normally).

Hello - having trouble with my system:

HP Pavilion a1230n / Windows XP SP2
Anthlon 64 3700+
Geforce 7600 GS
1.5 Gigs PC3200 RAM

Problem: sometimes the pc simply crash-restarts, no error messages or warnings. Most often happens when playing an on-line computer game, "Eve Online." The screen goes black and the pc re-boots.

A PC Doctor diagnostic test shows my cpu (Athlon 64) failing three tests:


Error Message for above tests (comes up during PC Doctor test): "Virtual Device Driver format in regsistry is invalid." This error message is a windows pop-up box, NOT a PC Doctor result message.

HP Tech Support online chat says the cpu is screwed and needs to be replaced. Anyone have any other opnions? Thx!

A:PC crashes & restarts

See if you get a error message by turning the Automatic Restart OFF.
How to turn off Automatically Restart

Click Start then right click My Computer choose Properties
Then Advanced tab
Under Startup & Recovery click Settings
Under System failure uncheck Automatically Restart
Click OK.

Now the Error message should stay up so you can read it.

Over heating or Video Card or both is a likely cause.

Hi to all, i have a laptop running Windows 7 Professional. The problem is strange and havent had it on any other Windows 7 machine.

If i click the folder icon on the bottom tool bar (windows explorer) then in the left hand pane expand the C drive then right click on any folder it instantly displays a dialog saying Explorer has experienced a problem and needs to close, windows is
looking for a fix for this problem (cant remember exact wording) then Explorer.exe restarts. This happens on the local C drive and Network drives. 
I though it could be a permissions problem so have taken ownership of all files & folders on the C drive which made no difference, i have removed the laptop from our server / domain and it is still the same / no change.
Can anyone shed any light on this problem or offer any ideas on fixing it? the laptop is only a few months old and is i5 / 4GB RAM Dell machine running Windows 7 Pro SP1 office 2003 Pro, checked for virus & adware & all clean.

A:Explorer.exe crashes when righ click on item in left pane on windows explorer nothing in system logs, explorer.exe restarts.

The faulting module (Fault Module Name: SHELL32.dll) shell32.dll is a Windows system file however the file that is actually causing the crash may be a third party file which from the symptoms
may be a third party context menu handler.
The following link has some info and a download to ShellExView which you can use to selectively disable third party context menu handlers to find out a problematic one:
You could try disabling all non-Microsoft context menu handlers and then, if the problem resolves, re-enable them one at a time to see which one was the problem.
BTW, the error should be logged in the Event Viewer Application log as a Application Error involving explorer.exe

I have recently been experiencing frequent black screen crashes while web browsing and when launching games on my laptop.

Example 1:
Browsing through mountandblade.wikia.com
Scrolling down, Screen immediately turns black
Music from my music player is still playing
Sound finally fails after 9-10 seconds
Only way out is from a hard reboot

I have experienced this on both Firefox and IE.
Another case was when I at youtube.com, black screen crash suddenly occurs as I was typing in the search box and suggestion prompts start showing up.

Also, when launching games such as Warcraft III and Guild Wars, my laptop immediately black screen crashes.
I see the starting menu for possibly 1 frame, then the display fails.
However, I have no problem launching older games, such as HoMM 3. (I am unsure if the game failures and the web browsing failures are related.)

I am running on XP service pack 3. Windows updates have been set to automatic so I believe they are reasonably up to date.

The video card in my laptop is a ATI Mobility Radeon X1400.
I have reinstalled the graphics drivers as follows but the crashes persist:
-Uninstall drivers via Control Panel
-Reboot in safe mode and ran Driver Cleaner Pro to remove all ATI files
-Reboot and reinstall drivers, then reboot again.

I also ran a memory diagnostic tool, memtest86+ v4.20 overnight.
10 passes were completed after eight hours but no errors were detected.

I have also uninstalled Flash player as per the instructions on: http://helpx.... Read more

In the last few months, my homebuilt system has begin crashing / BSing at seemingly random times: web browsing, document editing, etc. It will occasionally come out of standby on its own, and crash sometime during the night. Many times it will simply crash with a scrambled screen (not BSOD) and the reboot two or three times on its own before completely booting into windows. It will also go days, sometimes weeks, without a crash. Attached is my zip file. It may not have a lot of collected data, as I ran CCleaner recently, but hopefully it is helpful. Thank you for any assistance with this.

Hello and welcome udunnnome Mate have you run any security scans yet? either with your main AV or others if not these are well worth a try for starters



Another test you can run is a RAM test with Memtest86+ - Advanced Memory Diagnostic Tool

you will need to make a bootable disk and set the BIOS to boot from the optical drive but try the scans first as this one takes a while to do.

oh and some system specs mate is always helpful - mobo HDD RAM etc etc

I am having some crazy BSODs and crashes in my PC since like one month ago. I've even bought a new PSU and reinstalled Windows (less than 24 hours ago), but nothing has changed. Actually, It just gets worse. When I play games, most games that require a good PC crash, like Team Fortress and CoD MW3 (hl2.exe has stopped working/iw5mp.exe has stopped working), and BSOD while playing Diablo III and GTA IV. These are like the only games I'm playing nowadays.

My PC Specs:
AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition (Age: ≃ 8 months)
2x2 4GB DDR3 RAM (Age: ≃ 8 months)
Motherboard Biostar TA890GXB HD (Age: ≃ 8 months)
PSU Corsair TX650M (Age: ≃ 24 hours)
Graphics Card ATI Radeon HD 5770 VAPOR-X SAPPHIRE 1GB DDR5 (Age: ≃ 2-years-old)

The graphics card is the oldest component and I have had some BSODs that mentioned AMD .dll files, so I think it could be the problem, but anyway... Can any of you analyze it, please?

Hello Muggie and welcome to Sevenforums.

BSOD Report

There's a few things to look out for here, hopefully I'll get some conclusions on them.

Drivers to be aware of

BIOS64 BIOS64.sys Sun Jun 08 02:12:00 2003 (3EE27F50)
klif klif.sys Wed Apr 20 12:34:31 2011 (4DAEB6B7)
Your BIOS64, is a Biostar product. I have yet no experience with this product, but it seems like it's some sort of an I/O driver. See if you're able to update it. BIOSTAR :: Download
Kaspersky, klif.sys, is a known BSOD causer. If you want a stable security software, you should go for software like MSE. Use the Kaspersky Uninstall Utility. If you have purchased Kaspersky, consider contacting their Support.
