Windows 7: Constant Crashes

Constant Crashes

Hello I have been looking into a friend's computer and he is having constant crashing issues and I have been so far unsuccessful in pinpointing the reasoning behind it. I have included a hijack this log below and he is running the 32bit version of windows 7 and he recently got a new video card and he said that was when the issues started.

Windows 7 Ultimate x64 SP1

Uninstall Daemon software and remove its driver (sptd.sys) with this tools --> DuplexSecure - Downloads
Because sptd.sys have some issue with Windows 7 and for alternative software you may use MagicISO.

Then you have 2 Antivirus that may conflicting each other.
My suggestion is remove both antivirus (McAfee and Avast) then replace it with MSE because MSE could running better in windows kernel.

I Have done as you said about the uninstallation for the daemon tools and uninstalled both av software, I am still encountering the same problems though unfortunately windows will almost immediately lock up after starting in normal mode if I am connecting on teamviewer to it even if I just am on there a moment I have a rough time even getting to look at his event viewer without crashing again
