BF3 and ARMA 2 crashing, no BSOD. Complete Freeze!

System specs:
ATI 6950 normal clocks by Sapphire
965 Phenom x4 stock settings
Biostar Motherboard
Good Psu
4 gig ram, 2 kingston and 2 corsair
Seagate Barracuda 250 gb, Samsung 1tb drives

Mayor changes 1 day before problem started: Used AVG to delete trojans that infected registry files (deleted too I guess). BF3 newest Patch.

So after those changes, everytime I play BF3 multiplayer or ARMA 2 and Day z my system crashes or I get disconnected from game. Mostly crashes, no bsod, no cntl-alt-delete. FORCED RESTART. Image stays on, sound stays on. After a minute or two, a half second BSOD appears (impossible to see detailed info) and computer restarts.

Things of I have tried:

Updated punkbuster drivers, video drivers, realtek audio drivers, cleaned pc, monitor temps of gpu and cpu. Disable audio on BIOS. Played single player with no internet (still crashed) [only those games]. Delete mouse driver and let it reinstall. Delete usb drivers and let them automatically update. Uninstalled both games. disable upnp via system and router, changed sex, murder a cat, etc.

Please help, played witcher 2, stalker cop, cod, and crysis like a charm. So it is not my video card, I have also tried setting my gpu voltages to 1.18 but sapphire trixx resets on restart.

Any ideas? I love day z and bf3. Computer worked really well before avg (already uninstalled) and bf3 patch. Thanks.

  1. Looks to be a software issue so maybe a full reinstall of those games is needed and in worst case OS as well.

    can it be mys usb ports? or a ram? but if it was ram, wouldnt other games fail?
  3. I think a shared dll got deleted by AVG and therefore you have these crashes.

    reinstalled both, still crashed even single player, I used pc pitstop and it detected over 400 r files missing, do registry files have anything to do with game files? I dont and cant reinstall win 7 because I dont have the disks with me.
  6. Yes registry files are very important! That is where windows keeps inventory of what you have installed.

    but isnt arma 2 reinstall supposed to contain all the reg files, or are they only possible to install via Windows CD or a program like PC Pitstop?

    It should work just installing the games, make sure you get all patches as well. Like I said before, in worst case OS has to be install again.
