The problem: For some time now I've been experiencing crashes in pretty much every program on my computer a few times per day. This includes games such as World of Warcraft, Starcraft, and anything installed via Steam, as well as Microsoft Security Essentials, hardware drivers for my graphics card and Google Chrome. Chrome individual tabs and extensions crashing has been the symptom from day one, but recently the entire program started crashing. I also get Blue Screens between every and every second day. For a while I also got reports of corrupted files and Windows wanted me to run chkdsk. This seems to have gone away after running chkdsk a few times, but everything else is still occuring.
Solutions tried: Opened up the computer and checked every connection, took in and out RAM.
Thorough malware removal, I'm 100 % this is not the source of my problem and should not have any malware in my computer.
Chkdsk on both my hard drives.
Ran SFC /SCANNOW and it did some repairs, unclear on what.
Ran Windows Memory Diagnostics, did not find any problems.
Cleaned out my SSD to have some more free space, it started to get pretty crowded in there. Not sure if this might help, did it recently and the problem usually takes a while to show itself.
Reinstalled most of the programs crashing most frequently, including Google Chrome and World of Warcraft.
I've attached a dump (though zipped, the board did not accept .dmp files) that was created after the latest BSOD. It suggests that win32k.sys might be the problem. But I can't really be sure, and as I said, SFC /SCANNOW did not seem to solve the problem.
This is my system:
Processor: Intel Core i5 3570K 3,4Ghz (Ivy Bridge)
Motherboard: MSI Z77A-GD65 ATX
Memory: Corsair 16GB (4x4096MB) CL9 1600Mhz VENGEANCE LP
For OS: Samsung SSD Basic 830-Series 128GB
For most programs: 2TB WD Caviar Green
Graphics: AMD Radeon HD 7900 Series
Power Supply: Corsair AX 750W 80+ Gold
Case: NZXT Phantom Special Edition Red Stripes
Any help in figuring out what might be the problem and how to solve it is greatly appreciated.
