Windows 7: Seemingly random BSOD's, problem with graphics driver?

Seemingly random BSOD's, problem with graphics driver?

Hello. This summer I purchased an Alienware X17. Over the course of a few months, I occasionally dealt with seemingly random BSOD's about DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE.

After I updated some of my files (using customized updates because Dell doesn't care much about making update-ready files for it, so I went to a forum that prepares them for install) it seemed to go away. However, I installed the latest Nvidia graphics card to keep up with the gaming I enjoy sometimes in my off time, and it returned, if a little less frequently. Now, a game I've recently installed (STALKER: Call of Pripyat) has begun to progressively lag more and more until it becomes unplayable, and just a few moments of in-game play at maybe 5-10 fps crashes with the same BSOD. It's getting annoying, and there doesn't seem to be a visible fix for the game, but I'm hoping to get this fixed at least. Thank you for your time.

Running the memory dumps from May and June

Daemon Tools (and Alcohol % software) are known to cause BSOD's on some Win7 systems (mostly due to the sptd.sys driver, although I have seen dtsoftbus01.sys blamed on several occasions).
Please uninstall the program, then use the following free tool to ensure that the troublesome sptd.sys driver is removed from your system (pick the 32 or 64 bit system depending on your system's configuration): DuplexSecure - FAQ

Some free alternatives (I don't use them, so I can't comment on them)

MagicISO - Convert BIN to ISO, Create, Edit, Burn, Extract ISO file, ISO/BIN converter/extractor/editor

You may be infected. This program executes from your startups: MgKPyEORiQUvGj.exe
A google search shows lot's of posts related to malware. Please perform several of the free scans from here: Free Online AntiMalware Resources

Have you recently updated your MalwareBytes program? - I see 2 instances of it in the memory dump files.

Hamachi/LogMeIn drivers date from 2009, please update them.

Check to see if McAfee is compromised:

Anti-Virus Removal:
Please do the following:
- download a free antivirus for testing purposes: Free AntiVirus
- uninstall the McAfee from your system (you can reinstall it, if so desired, when we're done troubleshooting)
- remove any remnants of McAfee using this free tool: http://service.mcafee.com/FAQDocument.aspx?id=TS100507
- IMMEDIATELY install and update the free antivirus, then check to ensure that the Windows Firewall is turned on.
- check to see if this fixes the BSOD's
NOTE: NEVER run more than 1 anti-virus, firewall, Internet Security/Security Center application at the same time.
Memory dumps mention your video drivers (but don't directly blame them). I'd suggest updating them from the nVidia website ( World Leader in Visual Computing Technologies | NVIDIA )

The following info is just FYI, I've already addressed the issues that I saw in the above paragraphs
