Windows 7: BSOD in ntoskrnl.exe

BSOD in ntoskrnl.exe

Since more than a year we get 0 - 6 BSOD a month with a crash address in ntoskrnl.exe. We are not aware of any circumstance in which this happens. It seems to occur randomly. Help with this problem would be much appreciated.

updated virus control with Avast
Zonealarm firewall
malware scans with Malwarebyte's AntiMalware
MemTest86+ did not reveal any memory problem

I suppose details about my system are grabbed by the much appreciated SF_diagnostic_tool.

Is there from this information something to say about how to solve this problem?

Thank you in advance.

Solved

Checking the 3 memory banks individually with MemTest86+ gave consistently errors for bank nr 3 in all slots. Thanks to a life time warranty the supplier delivered new memory promptly Although BSOD's happened intermittently, I consider this problem as solved.

Thanks for your advice to help me out!
