Windows 7: Random BSOD when not even using laptop.

Ah, I see.

After removing Daemon Tools, I didn't have to start in Safe Mode, and so far there has been no BSOD, but it's only been running for about an hour. I will keep the laptop running for as long as is needed, and if there has been any crashes within 24 hours, I will post the dmp's here.

I have now kept the laptop running for about 24 hours with the Driver Verifier enabled, and I have encountered a few more BSODs. Please note that I haven't actually been working on the laptop during the time the verifier has been enabled.

One was encountered early on as I was shutting down the laptop (this was due to me having to leave home, so I haven't had the laptop running for 24 hours straight, but I did left it on over night after that).

The most recent one happened when I was about to disable the verifier. I had to check the verifier guide that you linked in an earlier post to make sure I disabled it correctly, but as I was opening my browser, it stopped responding and I couldn't do anything, in which case I tried to Ctrl - Alt - Del; as I did that, my screen just went black, and all I could see was the cursor (this has happened several times before).
I tried shutting down the laptop by pressing the Windows key, right arrow key and Enter (I think that normally takes you to the shut down button, anyways), and that's when I got the BSOD.

I've attached the dmps, among them is also the dmp from when I got a BSOD caused by what I believe was Daemon Tools, as I mentioned in an earlier post, just in case you wanted to see that one as well.


Thanks in advance for the assistance!

Edit: Ah, I don't know if this is of any significance, but I forgot to mention that I got a warning window pop up yesterday (this was while the verifier was enabled) saying something along the lines of "Windows has encountered a critical problem and will automatically restart in one minute".

Edit 2: Two more BSODs have occurred after disabling the verifier. I've attached the two new dmps in the Minidumps_2 zipfile.
