BSOD ntoskrnl.sys - New PC build

Hi Guys

I'm having some difficulty with a new build that I did for a relative. It intermittantly does the old BSOD.

It's a Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit (OEM) PC
The system was bought new last week and the OS has been installed for the same amount of time.
AsRock 870 Extreme 3 MoBo
AMD Phenom X4 955
4GB Kingston DDR3 RAM
AMD Radeon 6850 HD

I tried to make sure that all drivers have been updated and also run the windows memory diagnostic (only 2 passes ima going to run more while I wait for a reply)

Any assistance on this one will be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Thanks for the reply,

I uninstalled those two applications and then ran the specified utilities in the order you requested. There were no problems found with the hard drive in either the WD diagnostic, the system file checker or the check disk. I then ran 12 passes of the mem test and no errors were found.

I have not had any yet, but this build is strange that way. I have personally only managed a BSOD once all the rest happened when the PC was with it's owner. It's been running continuously for nearly 4 days now without incident so I'm just going to leave this one as it is for now.

Thank you very much for your time.

Unfortuantely there is less good news this time. The build has blue screened once again. mini dump is attached. My debugger does not have the appropriate symbols to read it so looking forward to seeing what this one is about.
