These drivers need to be updated or uninstalled for testing purposes, they possibly can be re-installed after the crash cause is found.

Uninstall the Gigabyte utilities, they are known to cause crashes in Windows 7.
Uninstall iTunes, for testing, also known to cause crashes in Windows 7.
Uninstall Sophos Anti-Virus, until the crash cause is found.
Install MSE anti-virus during analyses and testing.
