Symptoms I've noticed: After I log in to my computer sometimes it hangs and freezes (I have just been restarting multiple times until it boots up for like 2 months now) on just a black screen (audio buzzes, like a repeating noise or something), also after keeping computer on for 6 hours (after school/over night) I get an BSoD error.
After research I've concluded
Antiviruses: Avast
Pretty sure its not registrys
Might be RAM although i doubt it (than again what do I know)

I have a HiJackThis file, I'm not sure if this is the right thing i should be submitting but I'm going to paste it anyways in the spoiler.

Please tell me anything you think may be the case I'm willing to try any options and am decent in computers.

Not sure if this is relevant, but theres a lot of "missing files" in your HiJackThis log. First thing I would do is try to read the bluescreen.

Disable Auto Restart on System Failure: http://pcsupport.about.com/od/windows7/ht/automatic-res... . When the bluescreen happens, you'll be able to read it.

Hmm, you heard a weird buzz...do you have a separate sound card or is it integrated to the motherboard? If separate, update drivers and see if that helps. If not, update sound and other motherboard drivers off mobo manufacturer website. If its dedicated sound card, switch temporarily to the onboard sound and see if the error happens again. If not, then your sound cards the problem.

My next approach if none of the above works is to act on your suspicion of ram. Run memtest86 outside the OS: http://www.memtest86.com/.

If that passes, I would then try booting into safe mode, then in command prompt, run sfc /scannow (for all the so called "missing files" in your HiJackThis log).

Final thing I would do is run malware scan: http://www.malwarebytes.org/ .

If NONE of the above works, well not sure at that point. Reading the bluescreen, as long as its not a generic error, could provide us more information.
