Windows 7: BSOD Problems ntoskrnl.exe+70540

BSOD Problems ntoskrnl.exe+70540

Hi guys I'm having issues with my computer
It's a Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit..
Anyways it's been giving me problems the past week... The crashes are random and rarely happens...
I would be playing a game called Mount and Blade Warband, or sometimes just browsing, it would run fine for an hour depends.. then all of a sudden my screen shuts black and there's white zig zages as it goes black and goes to a BSOD.
The BSOD I saw ranges from Bad_Pool_Header, MEMORY_MANAGEMENT and another Bad_pool_header,
Also I checked the culprit with BlueScreenView and all of it point to ntoskrnl.exe as the culprit, ntoskrnl.exe+70540 to be exact... I'm not sure what to do, my computer was running fine perhaps it's a driver problem?
Anyways I'm gonna attach some of the Minidumps here so people can have a look, I had crashes several days with the same Bad_pool_header but it appears my pc did not put them on the minidump, but the file attached were the same i think, So I put a zip of 3 dump files.

Spec:
Window 7 Ultimate 64
8 GM ram vengeance
2700k Cpu
i72600k
Asus P8P67 Deluxe Rev 3.0

Also to note I run everything at stock, I never messed with overclocking or anything

Thanks guys.

At least to test, uninstall avast! and install MSE (Microsoft Security Essentials) instead.
Microsoft Security Essentials - Free Antivirus for Windows

But I already paid for Avast , Could it be avast though? Did it say anything on the minidumps?

Sorry, that's what it looks like on the dumps. If you've still got the CD and product key for avast! you should be able to reinstall it if it's not the problem.

Ah ok, thanks for the help.

I'll uninstall it now, and download Microsoft Essential... Hopefully it fixes the problem. I'll report back in a few days

I think it's the same problem!

This is with avast gone and Microsoft Essentials on. It got the dumps though this time,. can you check again?

Make sure all Windows updates are installed including the latest Service Pack.

Test your RAM using Memtest86+. Let it run until 6-8 passes have completed or errors have been found.
RAM - Test with Memtest86+

Enable Driver Verifier. Enabling this should hopefully crash your system and then point to the faulty driver that is causing problems. However before you do, it is advised that you create a system restore point and backup first.

Enable driver verifier first, and we'll go from there.
