Mike,
Now I'm not familiar with these, which only reflects upon my lack of knowledge, but the dates of these files are such that one might have concern:

Code:
tifsfilt.sys          Wed Aug 29 07:37:29 2007
timntr.sys         Wed Aug 29 07:38:23 2007
tdrpman.sys      Mon Nov 12 07:36:33 2007
Then we have this weird named file:
Code:
000.fcl          Fri Sep 26 08:11:22 2008
I'll continue looking at the info you submitted.

100% update your Windows 7.

UPDATING YOUR WIN 7


ASSURE THAT YOU RECEIVE ALL UPDATES


WIN | type WINDOWS UPDATE | ENTER |
Change settings (left-hand column) |
checkmark all four of the boxes | OK
button

Approve any dialog boxes presented. Let Windows install any update features.

WIN is the key with the Microsoft flag on top.


INSTALL CRITICAL UPDATES

Check for Updates (left-hand column)
Install
ALL critical updates.
Restart your computer (even if not prompted)

Repeat this procedure until there are no more critical updates.


DO NOT TRUST the “Windows is up to date” in center of dialog. until you see that TWICE IN A ROW!


INSTALL IMPORTANT UPDATES

Use the “critical update” procedure until all important updates are installed.

INSTALL OPTIONAL UPDATES

Use the “critical update” procedure until all optional updates are installed.

Under Optional updates you will be presented with a list of about 34 language updates.
You can hide those updates so that aren't continually notified of those updates. When you click on 34 optional updates are available, then you
a) highlight all of the language updates,
b) right-click anywhere in the highlighted list.
c) click on Hide Updates,
d) OK button.
UPDATE GOLDEN RULES
Install ALL, yes, ALL updates.
This is Win 7 and not Vista or XP (eXPired).

UPDATE IS HUNG –TAKING FOREVER

Hung is very doubtful unless you interrupted updates.

CTRL + SHIFT + ESC key combo will pop-up the Task Manager.
Lo and behold, Windows Update is still running!

You hold down the CTRL and SHIFT keys.
While holding them down, tap the ESC key once.

Mike,
While doing all of this:

Essential is that you do NOT use Windows Media Player or any other media player until problem is eliminated.

Concentrate on fixing the problem. Forget all other computer activities. They will only complicate matters and increase the probability of more BSODs than you can handle.
