There is a code when you get a BSOD, without that, and the arcaic description, can't suggest a route of action.

Do you have two memory sticks? Try removing one of them, then see how she runs for a while... If it still happens, then try the other one.

Easiest way is to get a linux boot disc, and run memtest on it. That will tell you if there is a problem! Try the boot disc with the above test to see if one of your sticks is dodgy. The other reason you get BSOD's is driver updates....
Have you done any driver updates of late?

Try rolling back any drivers you recently updated and give that a whirl as well.
Hope this helps.

Onboard or separate graphics? Try uninstalling your graphics card and running on the standard VGA drivers to see if it's corrupted graphics drivers.
If it's really that important a machine to you, it may be best to give it over to a computer shop (not PCWorld!)
Diagnosing over the internet is difficult.

Blue screen of death is normally caused by a hardware fault. You could try starting in safe mode with networking.
Boot the computer, once past the bios, and before the loading screen keep hitting F8, then you will get the menu list.
Be VERY careful with registry checking programmes as they can actually leave the computer screwed.

I see from your screenshot that your a torrent user....
Most likely you might have some sort of virus/malware as well....easiest thing is to rebuild windows by ghe sounds of it. Will take about 2-3 hours.

I was looking on my phone, prob why.

If could well be a virus/malware. You could try running this: http://download.cnet.com/Malwarebytes-Anti-Malware/3000-8022_4-10804572.html?part=dl-10804572&subj=dl&tag=button

It picks up a lot of issues, still points to hardware though to be honest.
