Nothing definitive but there are three known causes.

1-Please remove any CD visualization programs such as Daemon Tools and Alcohol 120%.


They use a driver, found in your dmp, called sptd.sys, that is notorious for causing BSODs.

Use this SPTD uninstaller DuplexSecure - Downloads DuplexSecure - FAQ

when you're done you can use this Freeware MagicISO Virtual CD/DVD-ROM(MagicDisc) in its place.

2-Your Avast. I would remove and replace with Microsoft Security essentials

Virus, Spyware & Malware Protection | Microsoft Security Essentials

3-Old drivers needing updating
Code:
ISODrv64.sys    11/2/2007 11:21:18 PM        fffff880`0746e000    fffff880`0748a000    0x0001c000    0x472be92e                        
vsmraid.sys    1/30/2009 9:18:57 PM        fffff880`00eb0000    fffff880`00eda000    0x0002a000    0x4983a701                        
L1C62x64.sys    4/1/2009 1:09:17 AM        fffff880`13fa4000    fffff880`13fb6000    0x00012000    0x49d2f6fd

How To Find Drivers:
Quote:
- search Google for the name of the driver
- compare the Google results with what's installed on your system to figure out which device/program it belongs to
- visit the web site of the manufacturer of the hardware/program to get the latest drivers (DON'T use Windows Update or the Update driver function of Device Manager).
- if there are difficulties in locating them, post back with questions and someone will try and help you locate the appropriate program.
- - The most common drivers are listed on this page: Driver Reference Driver Reference
- - Driver manufacturer links are on this page: Drivers and Downloads

Hi mate ok I have given that a go and I will see how it goes over the next 24hours. I have setup verifier.exe to try and catch the driver also.

Thanks
