Occasional DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL BSOD

Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 64x OEM

Every so often; 3 days-2 weeks; I get a BSOD relating to: DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL
My system is 1 1/2 years old and the OS is roughly 6 months (i did a reinstall to attempt to fix this)
I would be greatly appreciated if you could help.

Crashes are being caused by your IObit software, and the software needs to be removed. See if that provides more stability; then we can look into other possible causes.

Yes, I meant the IOBit anti-malware software. You may also consider removing the defrag tool by them. I personally do not recommend 3rd party defrag tools. I have seen them damage restore points and even cause blue screen crashes. Windows has some nice command line flags for the defrag command that will accomplish the same tasks as 3rd party programs. The -b and -w flags will defrag boot files and the boot registry items as well as compact the data to the center of the disk for faster access.
defrag c: -b
defrag -c -v -w
The first command optimizes boot performance for the Windows drive by defragmenting boot files and boot registry items.

The second command includes all drives on the system through the -c command and optimizes the drives by compacting the data to the center of the disk. Verbose output through the -v option is optional to provide the user with more information about the defrag tasks. The commands have to be run in an Elevated Command Prompt.

For more flags, see Disk Defragmenter - Open and Use.

I just had another bluescreen, but didn't have time to read the message. Will attach new minidump.
