Your dumps have error code:
- 0x18 = indicates that the reference count of an object is illegal for the current state of the object.
- 0xD1 = a kernel-mode driver access pageable memory at high level IRQL.

First uninstall Alcohol/Daemon software because it's well known BSOD maker and I see its driver involved in the stack text.
Remove sptd.sys with this tools --> DuplexSecure - Downloads
fffff800`00b9cc30 fffffa80`02dff000 sptd+0x424ce
Then your antivirus Eset NOD32 is outdated so you must use the latest version or uninstall it completely.
I would recommend you to use MSE instead Eset.

Update these drivers:

Yes, MSE is good antivirus in win7, and for the virtual CD you may use other software which is not using sptd driver.
For example: MagicIso Virtual CD/DVD

Please do so and see if the problem persist

Please remove any CD virtualization programs such as Daemon Tools and Alcohol 120%. They use a driver, found in your dmp, sptd.sys, that is notorious for causing BSODs. Use this SPTD uninstaller when you're done:
