He already knows about memtest, that is about the best memory scanner.

It's a CD-Bootable. It thoroughly checks for RAM problems. Check it out:

I'll check on the Cool & Quiet thing. I don't remember ever setting that, and I assume it's not default.
Will try running another Memtest.

Thanks guys. I'll report back.

Actually, enabled is probably is the default setting.

Bad news. More blue screens. A lot of my startup/service programs give an error message on startup. Blue screens happen pretty much whenever I try to move/delete a file or something like that.

Couldn't find anything about Cool & Quiet in the bios.

Tried running another Memtest - don't think there were any errors, but there was no report after the reboot like there should be.

I'm so confused.

Did you try to restore your system to a earlier date? Sounds like something is fluking up your system.

Unfortunately the only restore point I have is from after things got messed up.

Does it do this type of thing if you are using a Ubuntu Live-CD? Freezing up at all? It may be you HDD or just Windows acting dumb.

Sounds like a virus to me.

If I was you I'd boot in safe mode, back up all I need, format and reinstall OS.
