Windows 7: BSOD/Restart at random - Kernel-Power (41)

BSOD/Restart at random - Kernel-Power (41)

Hi everyone, I've been having this problem for a while and can't seem to find the cause of it.
I'm using an ACER 2920z laptop which came with Vista 32 and I've upgraded to Windows 7 64. This was a fresh install in January, and I saved an image of it - I have tried re-imaging but to no avail.

I have a process (I think its a process) called sentinel 64 which gives errors but I can't work out how to stop it running.

The restarts seem to happen more often when the computer is idle but has also happened while browsing the web. Files requested attached.

Thank you for reading

No dump files are attached, did you run any system cleaner(such as Clceaner) after the crash?
If so wait for the computer to BSOD and re-upload the file

Here is some info for removing the Sentinel64 driver

Hi Yowanvista,

Thank you for the quick reply.

Sorry I thought that crash dumps were included automatically by running the "Windows_NT6_BSOD_v3.03_jcgriff2_" program (the output of which is included in the first post).

Please find attached a collection of mini-dump files. These mini dumps seem to be related to another blue screen issue when I was checking drivers using "verifier" and were located in C:\Windows\Minidump. I can't find the mini dumps relating to the kernel minidumps based on time stamp. Is there another location I should check ?

These BSODs were all caused by Zone Alarm software Firewall/Security Suite, use the Removal Tool to completely remove such Software

DRIVER_VERIFIER_DETECTED_VIOLATION (c4)
A device driver attempting to corrupt the system has been caught.  This is
because the driver was specified in the registry as being suspect (by the
administrator) and the kernel has enabled substantial checking of this driver.
If the driver attempts to corrupt the system, bugchecks 0xC4, 0xC1 and 0xA will
be among the most commonly seen crashes.
Arguments:
Arg1: 0000000000000091, A driver switched stacks using a method that is not supported by
    the operating system. The only supported way to extend a kernel
    mode stack is by using KeExpandKernelStackAndCallout.

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: DuplexSecure - Downloads
You can use MagicDisc as an alternative.

Thanks for the quick reply again Yowanvista.

I've uninstalled Zonealarm and installed Comodo, and also used the link to remove Sentinel64. I've had problems with Magic Disc in the past are there any other alternatives to deamon tools you could recomend ?

I still seem to get the kernel power 41 (63) error especially if the computer is left idle for 20-30 minutes, though no mini dump is generated. I followed a guide which suggested changing to a small memory dump from kernel memory dump and not too restart automatically yet that still won't give a minidump and the PC still restarts, sometimes you don't even see a blue screen though it is recorded in the event viewer.

Your help is much appreciated. Thank you.

[SOLUTION]
Just as an update for anyone who finds this problem. My Kernel power 41 (63) error was fixed by updating the driver for my wireless card (Intel 4965 AGN) using intels website (the most up to date driver on windows update still caused the problem to occur)
