Windows 7: BSOD playing game and surfing net, error 7f recently c4

BSOD playing game and surfing net, error 7f recently c4

hello everyone,

just a little background on my pc, ive just recently built it, brand new parts are the cpu, mobo and ram. everything else (HD,casing,vid card etc) was reused. The parts, except the HD, are not even 1 year old. Coming from a pentium 4 of long ago i dont even know which generation, this rig is quite a step up and theres a lot i have to get used to.

anyway recently ive been playing mechwarrior online and it sometimes BSODs me while loading, either the menus or the game itself. Sometimes while surfing the net, but mostly while gaming. temps were all ok and im not OCing. I have latest drivers from Nvidia and intel and evga and asus installed.

Most of the time i opened up the dump file and i got the STOP bugcheck 7f (with the first param 08 double fault)
probably caused by : unknown image

but the most recent one came up with with 0xc4_91 code...

and now im completely baffled, being a noob and all...

thanks for any help given

ps im doing the verifier test now

Before doing anything else, uninstall MagicISO. Then Uninstall AVG and install Microsoft Security Essentials

Is it still troubling after doing these? Let us know.

Not needed now. Use the computer normally. If it crashes again on the normal usage, let us know.

Saying again, for the third time, .... please disable driver verifier. You dont need it right now. If it is needed anyhow, we will suggest you.

ATM what we need to know that if it is crashing without driver verifier or not.
Code:
0: kd> !analyze -v

DRIVER_VERIFIER_DETECTED_VIOLATION (c4)
A device driver attempting to corrupt the system has been caught.  This is
because the driver was specified in the registry as being suspect (by the
administrator) and the kernel has enabled substantial checking of this driver.
If the driver attempts to corrupt the system, bugchecks 0xC4, 0xC1 and 0xA will
be among the most commonly seen crashes.
Arguments:
Arg1: 0000000000000091, A driver switched stacks using a method that is not supported by
    the operating system. The only supported way to extend a kernel
    mode stack is by using KeExpandKernelStackAndCallout.
Arg2: 0000000000000002
Arg3: fffff80003255cc0
Arg4: 0000000000000000
