Go back to the PCPitstop report and take care of each item that has a large X at the end of it`s description.
Click on the actual item itself and you will be advised as to how you correct the issue, work your way down the list but updating the Network adapters may resolve the issue, you could do the above with only 1 stick of Ram fitted as suggested by Ztruker and save time.
NB: Where the Network drivers are concerned I would download and save them to the desktop, uninstall all traces of the previous drivers, reboot and then install the new drivers manually, this will prevent an overlap of the drivers which can cause system instability/crashes.
