To aid with troubleshooting you're going to need to produce a mini dump at the time of the crash - that error simply shows a bugcheck crash.
As in "I've got a problem so I'm going to shut down"
Could you please provide a mini-dump from the time of a crash?

It could be RAM, that is the first thing that I would check for. If you have 2 RAM chips, take one of them out and start the PC and see if its working or not.

It looks like your PC is infected by a virus/worm. Scan your PC using adaware and spybot S&D.

You can also try trendmicro's housecall online scanner, or Panda has something similar.
