My computer has been crashing frequently Steam or Windows Live pops up from start up. It also crashes when I try to adjust core speed/mem speed in MSI Afterburner or the CCC Overdrive. Pressing the "reset" button in Afterburner instantly crashes.

The blue screen is unlike anything i've seen. The screen doesn't turn blue but sort of tears in half like seeing 3d images without those special glasses.
Does the symptoms look like this?
