Random BSOD occuring only in a particular account. Bugcheck code: 0xF4

I have been getting random BSOD only in a particular account.

The BSOD is very random. In the other account I have tried running Driver verifier however I could not see any crashes.

Here is a short report on the bugcheck

This was probably caused by the following module: ntoskrnl.exe (nt+0x7EFC0)
Bugcheck code: 0xF4 (0x3, 0xFFFFFA800BEA6730, 0xFFFFFA800BEA6A10, 0xFFFFF80003181460)
Error: CRITICAL_OBJECT_TERMINATION
file path: C:\Windows\system32\ntoskrnl.exe

Thanks in advance.

Code:
BugCheck F4, {3, fffffa800bea6730, fffffa800bea6a10, fffff80003181460}

----- ETW minidump data unavailable-----
Probably caused by : wininit.exe
Remove:

Code:
Start Menu\Programs\DAEMON Tools Pro
Start Menu\Programs\TuneUp Utilities 2011
Daemon Tools is known to cause BSODs with Windows, and it is advisable you remove this program. Furhtermore, programs such as TuneUp Utilities do not improve the performance of Windows 7, and can cause crashes and problems with your system.

A recommended alternative for Daemon Tools is:You can also use some of Windows built-in features, which Daemon Tools provided, such as burning .ISO files to a CD/DVD.

Follow these steps -

Memory:Run Memtest86+ for least 7-8 passes, and preferably overnight as it can take a while to fully complete.

Test each RAM stick individually, if an error is found then move the same RAM stick into the next DIMM slot and test again, if errors are found for the same RAM stick in every available slot then you have a faulty RAM module. On the other hand, if no errors are found in the next slot or the other slots for the same RAM module, then you have a faulty DIMM slot.

Test each RAM stick and every motherboard DIMM slot available.

Scan for any corrupted or missing protected Windows files:

Thanks a lot for the quick reply.

Will remove both and let you know the results. I would need Daemon tools for IDE emulation though. Will remove it for temporary testing

I don't think the memory would be faulty . I have assembled this system 3 months back and haven't gotten any BSODs until last week. I have added a new 2 TB hard drive 2-3 weeks back though .

Again the BSOD are only visible in a particular account which is used by my brother during the day. I only access system during evening . I used the system heavily on the weekend in my account and there wasn't a single BSOD.

SFC / Scannow completely verified the system without violations

Have you tried creating a new user account for your brother?

Any more crashes? If it seems to be only occurring within his user account, then it may be a good option

NO BSODs today. So things seems fine for the day.

Not sure if it was daemon tools or Tune-up utilities.

I will test it for another 2-3 days and see what happens .

My Brother reported there was a BSOD today. However strange I could not find any minidumps , I could see the system had rebooted in the Event viewer.

I had unchecked the overwrite dump option in the advanced system settings. Could that have disabled the dumps ?|

Need to do more debugging

Make sure it has been configured to create a Minidump:Have you considered creating a new temporary account (don't remove his account) and see if any BSODs occur then?
