BSOD after playing certain games

Hello, I've been getting bsod for a few months now so I'm pretty frustrated with it, i've tried everything I can think of/found. (I updated ALL of my drivers)

My CPU gets bsod after playing only certain games, for example: when I play "World of Warcraft", after I shut down "WoW", about 2-5 mins later I'll get bsod.

I've run a ton of file scanners (CCleaner, register easy, ect.) They haven't done anything, I also have updated all my drivers with some other devices.

system specs: windows 7 home premium 64bit OS
Acer
Aspire X3400
AMD Athlon(tm) II X4 645 Processor 3.10 GHz

[if you need any other info about my pc let me know, btw the bsod errors are all different even for the same game]

Thanks for your time reading this and any help I recieve!

-Adding ZIP file very soon, thanks for letting me know

If you are using CCleaner to do disk cleanups (I see it installed via msinfo32.nfo -> Software Environment -> Program Groups), then you are deleting the .dmps we need to analyze to help you. Please refrain from using CCleaner and all other disk cleanup utilities until we have finished with your troulbleshooting.


Software Concerns:
  • Many of us on the forums actually do not recommend automated optimization tools for Windows 7. Windows 7 does a much better job of handling its own optimization than its predecessors did. We especially do not recommend registry cleaning as an "optimization" step because automated registry cleaning causes more harm to the registry than it actually repairs.

    In the future, if you need help optimizing Windows 7, please post a thread in Performance & Maintenance - Windows 7 Forums or follow the tutorial enclosed in that forum to Optimize Windows 7.

  • We do not recommend automated driver update software. It often finds drivers for devices similar to but not exactly the same as the hardware actually on the system. This can lead to conflicts and blue screen crashes. If you need help finding driver updates for a certain device, please start a thread in http://www.sevenforums.com/drivers/ instead of using software. Driver updates are not always necessary and some updates can actually decrease system stability rather than increase it, so it is usually better not to update unless a device or its driver is causing problems with the system. If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

  • 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.

Security Conflicts due to Software:
You have AVG and ad-aware installed on your system. Having two realtime antivirus programs installed can cause conflicts due to both using the same system resources simultanesouly. Remove one or the other. You should use either the proper methods to remove the software:
http://www.avg.com/us-en/utilities

ad-aware can be removed through Start Menu -> Control Panel -> Uninstall a Program
Event Viewer Logs:
Your $evtx_sys_dump.txt file indicates a variety of BugCheck codes (I searched it for the term bugcheck). This typically indicates a hardware related problem. In your case, though, I suspect it is from all the bad software you have installed to "optimize" Windows and you have damaged the operating system. Please clean re-install: Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7
