First of all i wanna say hello to all of you :D I am new to Geekstogo and this is my first problem;
Ok...I have a really annoying problem.Sometimes my computer restarts and a BSOD appears.It says something about beginning to dump physical memory.A week ago i had this problem when i used the windows search (the computer freezed and the bsod appeared)and i stoped using the search for a while.
I read that it has something to do about RAM and I changed the 2x256 ram i had to 2x512 ram and it still does that.I tried only with one memory and still nothing.
I played Assassin's Creed 2 for almost an hour and nothing happened however i played Mirror's Edge for like 15 minutes and bsod popped up.
And another thing:The bsod didn't appear until today in games but instead it said "the memory could not be read" error.
The BSOD mainly happens in Mirror's Edge and Call of Duty 4.
I am running Windows XP
PS: Sorry for my bad english ;)
[bleep] it happened again when i was running avg.Also it found a virus name AKV...could this be the problem? And if it is how can i delete that thing?

I suspect that you have some malware on your computer causing issues that we are not able to solve through means we can use here in the Tech Forums. I suggest you read the 'Start Here' topic found here. With these self-help tools you have a high chance of fixing the problems on your own. If you are still having problems after following Step 3 of the guide, continue with Step 4 and 5 and post in the Malware Forum. If you are unable to run any programs, Please create a topic stating what you have tried so far and that you are unable to run any programs. Also, Please do NOT post the logs in this thread.

If you are still having issues after the malware expert gives you a clean bill of health, Please return to THIS thread and we will pursue other options to help you solve your current problem(s).
