    I've gone through a couple of system recoveries, and I could just say that they bring problems each time.
    I wouldn't say they were successful ones either, but I'm getting tired of losing all my stuff. (Not a patient person at all)
    Since it's a school night, i'm going to make this short---

    After a week or two after re-installing programs, the problem came back with the random BSOD's.
    I get them at least once a day, and sometimes it would restart my computer and a screen would pop up with 'Hard Disk does not exist'.
    I just had this computer for about a year, everything went fine until problems started to come in about 6-7 months later.
    And another problem popped up (besides the BSODs), and its bothering me..
    Recently, my anti-virus expired (Norton Security) and i went to find another anti-virus to replace it. I un-installed Norton and installed avast!, but soon when it got up and running, it froze my computer. Not entirely, but you couldn't do much. I rebooted to safe mode, and it would too, freeze. Only if i scanned it and did something else. But i could navigate well, and once i rebooted again, it froze. It irritated me, so i uninstalled it, and the freezing problem went away.
    I tried installing other antivirus software as well, but to no avail.
    Is there something wrong? I have no idea if I have a virus, or if anything else is interfering with the installing of antivirus softwares.
    Only anti-virus related stuff, but I can easily download other programs and it wouldn't freeze.
    I'm not so tech-savvy, but if you can dumb it down a little, it would be appreciated.
    I'm not concerned about solving the BSOD issue, I just want to solve this problem because currently I'm just going paranoid because I'm not protected. D: But I will ask for help later about the BSOD issue. I'm pretty sure it has to do with updating my BIOS.. >_>
    Oh! And my operating system is 64-bit Windows 7 Home Premium
    HP Pavilion Phenom II dv7-4165dx

    Here's my log:
