Windows 7: Random Blue Screens

Random Blue Screens

I contacted this forum some time ago with repeated BSODs, which always cite ntsokrnl.exe+7040. I recently changed my motherboard, and the BSODs are still with me, exactly as before. I enclose the latest minidump. I would be eternally grateful if you guys could help me sort this out.
In my research I came across www.newdriversupdate.com. They say they are an official Microsoft partner and will find the correct and up to date drivers for one's machine. Has anyone any experience with them and is it worthwhile paying for their services?

Never use driver updaters, they usually cause a lot of system issues

I now attach the files as per your Posting instructions. (The perfmon file is inside the zip file).

I am running Windows 7 Home Premium x64. I have a retail copy. The motherboard is brand new (ASUS P5P41T/USB3). Original internal harddrive about 3 yrs old, second internal drive this year.

Latest dump in your attachment (dated 13/12/2010) blames a core system file
You should enable driver verifier to locate the faulting driver
Driver Verifier - Enable and Disable

Run a scan of Malwarebytes in safe mode with networking


Code:
BugCheck 7F, {8, 80050031, 406f8, fffff80002df1886}

Probably caused by : ntkrnlmp.exe ( nt!KiDoubleFaultAbort+b2 )

Assuming Driver Verifier identifies the faulting driver, do I then replace it, and if so, how?

You will have to uninstall the driver and install a newer version
