Random BSOD refers to ntoskrnl.exe

Windows 7 Home Premium gives a BSOD randomly, sometimes when the computer is being used and other times when it is idling. Any and all help would be appreciated.

IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL (a)
An attempt was made to access a pageable (or completely invalid) address at an
interrupt request level (IRQL) that is too high.  This is usually
caused by drivers using improper addresses.
If a kernel debugger is available get the stack backtrace.
Arguments:
Arg1: 0000300100000009, memory referenced
Arg2: 0000000000000002, IRQL
Arg3: 0000000000000001, bitfield :
    bit 0 : value 0 = read operation, 1 = write operation
    bit 3 : value 0 = not an execute operation, 1 = execute operation (only on chips which support this level of status)

Is the computer is a part of a network, and there is another computer there in the same name?

I have nothing to say against Avast, but I would suggest you install Malwarebytes : Free anti-malware and have a full scan your system with it, in safe mode.

Let us know how things went.

Thank You for your help & suggestions!
Only USB device is the mouse. Hadn't noticed 2 pc's with the same name I changed one of them.
I reseated the SATA , memory , & power. Then ran 10 passes of memtest+ no problems, ran chkdsk Option 2 with suggested switches no problems.
I haven't run Seatools yet.
I did give in over the weekend and did a clean reinstall but within 6 hrs. got a BSOD and several since then. I have attached the latest dump files using the SF Diagnostic Tool. I know it looks like I'm way behind on updating everything, but have done all updates since reinstall.
I use Avast & Malwarebytes , just hadn't got it installed on this pc until this morning.
I am confused though, I shut the pc down yesterday afternoon and didn't boot it back up til around 9 this morning and haven't had a BSOD yet; Knock on Wood.
I will keep you updated.

Jim, do one more thing. Enable Driver Verifier.
Driver Verifier - Enable and Disable

It will monitor your third party drivers, and will put the exact information in the subsequent dumps, if any.

Well 2 days using the pc problem free then a BSOD sometime last night when idle. I ran SeaTools/Seagate yesterday afternoon finding no problems.
I hope I enabled Driver Verifier correctly.
Attached is the dump file from this morning, hopefully it will tell us something.

Jim, the latest dump you supplied is of 11th of this month, that means before the time you have enabled driver verifier.

We wanted to check a crash dump with the verifier on, so it will be of no help in this case

The latest one, dated 11/9 2012 shows this:

A bugcheck 1A occurs due to a device driver or a memory related issue. As no device driver is found earlier, I suggested you to enable driver verifier so that the third party drivers can be monitored. But the crash shows that it is an earlier one.

On the basis of that dump, I would suggest you to run memtest.

Arc,

I noticed the date on the file also but thought I was missing something. I'm not sure why the last BSOD didn't create a dump file.
I'll run memtest tonight and tomorrow and post an update tomorrow evening.
Again I want to Thank You for your help and guidance with this problem.

I ran memtest86+ for 14 Passes (21hrs) with no Errors. I guess I'll keep my fingers crossed the BSOD nightmare is over unless you have other suggestions to try to pinpoint the problem.

Wait a couple of days, see how it works now.

If it keeps crashing, let us know.

I didn't have to wait long. The system crashed last night at idle and then twice this morning while I was trying to run the SF Diagnostic tool. Finally ended up going into Safe Mode to get the Dump Files for you. Hopefully this file will help.
