BSOD Issue

My problem is that I cannot use windows 7 long. A warning comes up that Windows is closing and then a few seconds later a Blue screen pops up with F8 instructions, but it closes real fast and I can't read it. Then it reboots every time. I tried making a recovery disc but that doesn't work either. What can i do? I am not using IE9.
:confused:
thanks

This maybe a malware problem, the PC was working beautifully at one time.

Thanks

Re: BSOD Issue

Please do not cross post your two threads have been merged to prevent confusion.
Hello and welcome to the forums.
First make sure your machine is configured properly to facilitate the collection of .dmp files.
Go to Start and type in sysdm.cpl and press Enter
Click on the Advanced tab
Click on the Startup and Recovery Settings button
Ensure that Automatically restart is unchecked
Under the Write Debugging Information header select Small memory dump (256 kB) in the dropdown box
Ensure that the Small Dump Directory is listed as %systemroot%\Minidump << where your .dmp files can be
found later.
Click OK twice to exit the dialogs, then reboot for the changes to take effect.
Then:
Please read the first post in this sticky thread here How to ask for help with a BSOD problem
Do your best to accumulate the data required.
Run the SF Diagnostic tool (download and right click the executable and choose run as administrator)
Download and run CPUz. Use the Windows snipping tool to gather images from all tabs including all slots populated with memory under the SPD tab.
Likewise RAMMon. Export the html report, put everything into a desktop folder that you've created for this purpose, zip it up and attach it to your next post (right click it and choose send to, compressed (zipped) folder.
