Destop Disapeared and BSOD

okay, something is wrong with my computer. i first noticed a problem a few days ago when my desktop wallpaper diapered. the weird thing though is that the wallpaper isn't actually gone becasue every time i start up my computer or shut it down, or even go into standby, my wallpaper comes back for a sec. so its not like windows lost it, or i deleted it or something, its like something has taken control of my wallpaper like a virus or something.

i didn't think much of it at first until yesterday my computer has started get the Blue Screen of Death constantly (about 7 times total). ive tried scanning it for viruses and maleware using AVG and Spy bot S&D but haven't successfully finished a scan because of BSOD's.

any help is appreciated. im a tech guy so you can get as technical in your respond as you want, but this on has me stumped...
