Windows 7: Random BSOD "bugcheck"

Win 7 64 bit
Random BSOD "bugcheck"


Ive been floating around these forums for a while but have never really posted until today. After building my new system, I have been experiencing random BSOD during odd moments. Sometimes, my PC will be idle while other times, I will be playing graphic heavy games when it will freeze, and I get a the BSOD. I've ran memtest+ and have not found any errors (i ran both sticks in at the same time, just found out I should do one at a time). About my system:

Win 7 64 bit
Intel i5 2500k
8-gig ram
gtx 480 1.5gig video card
ASRock Z77 Pro4 LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Here is the included .zip file as well

Thank you all!

Software concerns:

Start Menu\Programs\Check Point\ZoneAlarm    Public:Start Menu\Programs\Check Point\ZoneAlarm    Public
Zone Alarm is known cause to BSoDs. Please uninstall it.

I and many members on our forum recommend Microsoft security essentials with
a great combination of Malware Byes.

Microsoft Security Essentials - Free Antivirus for Windows
Malwarebytes - The Free version
Good and Free system security combination.

Run a full scan with both (separately) once downloaded, installed and updated.

You need to get all updates from windows updates including Service Pack 1
