Random BSOD while playing games and watching movies

As the title says, I am experiencing random BSODs for months, but only recently have discovered this forum and hope you will be able to help me..
I have attached SF diagnostic tool report and hope that there will be someone to help me with this problem and diagnose it properly.

Thank you

Ok, I did some checks and here goes:
1. Antirootkit utility and Win defender offline didn't find anything.
2. Display driver is up to date according to ATI driver downloader app from their site
3. Chkdsk scanned my PC and automatically restarted so I have no idea if it found and fixed any errors...
4. Did memtset86+ about 2 weeks ago during whole night and it was ok, and so was test with Seagate software

So not really sure if any of this had helped but thanks again for your time and trouble, and hopefully there will be no more annoying BSODs...

If there are any more suggestions please let me know

Cheers

I've downloaded and installed newest video driver from ATI's site for my HD6770 card as recommended this morning, and just got a new crash today during normal surfing..

I've attached the new report file. Please see what is wrong and help me to resolve it.

Cheers for the hard work you guys are doing here!

This is my FurMark3d result, have no idea what it means, but at least nothing had crashed during the test, so I guess my GPU is ok..
I've updated Realtek drivers, cleaned up the starup a little bit, and uninstalled MagicISO (now I installed VirtualCloneDrive for mounting ISOs, hope that is ok, if not, please recommend an app for mounting ISOs).
You have recommended me to uninstall MSI but that is my webcam driver, and I need it to video chat on Skype, is there any workaround to this?
And if I uninstall CCC does that mean that my underscan/overscan settings will return to default? I am using a 42'' TV as monitor and there are black boarders around the screen as default, and tweaking underscan/overscan option helps to fit the desktop screen to my TV

Thanks for helping out Arc!

OK ... leave the rest of the tasks pending. Now wait and see if it crashes anymore or not.

If it crashes again, do the rest.

Hmmm.. Strange thing happens with FurMark3d (newest version 1.10.3).

If I click 'Burn-in benchmark 1920-1080 15min' button, animation looks ok and that is the result I've attached above, but if I click the button 'Burn-in test' (and the settings are same for both tests, 'dynamic background', 'burn-in', 'extreme burn-in', 'post-FX' are checked) the animations becomes ugly (can't think of a good word for it, I'll upload the screenshots of it)

What is that about?

It is kinda failing to render 3D with the highest resolution.

Helpful info. For some of your games, you may need to reduce texture settings priorities etc, to run them smooth.
