Windows 7: Multiple BSOD's no obvious pattern

Multiple BSOD's no obvious pattern

For the last several weeks, I've started experiencing multiple bsod's. Since the laptop was 2 years old, I opted (after malware scans) just to wipe the drive and use HP's recovery tools to reimage to new condition. However, the BSOD's continued. Ran Memtest overnight with no errors. Ran Norton Recovery tool from USB boot, no malware/viruses found. Uninstalled norton and installed Microsoft Security essentials, but BSOD's continue.
Only thing unusual in this machine is an upgraded Seagate momentus xt hybrid drive and upgraded wireless card to access 5.2 ghz band.
Machine was getting fairly hot, so disassembled before the reimage and cleaned out a fairly dirty fan, temps great now.
Transfering files seems more troublesome, either usb/network (wired)/or eSATA), but that may just be a red herring.
Any help would be very much appreciated.

Probably it is contributing to all the disk errors. Better you uninstall it. Follow Clean Up Factory Bloatware, with a special reference to the point #13.

Done.

Did remove norton with the NRT, but reran just in case.

I was trying to avoid a clean install as the machine came with a corel paintshop pro that I wanted to keep, but if this keeps up I'll be forced to. May do a longer memtest as well.

I've came across this site several times trying to troubleshoot this myself. Very impressive community if I may say so. Will let you know how the changes went.

Otherwise, it is tough to stop the Ntfs.sys errors with a possible cause present.

Sorry, thought I did but turns out it can be alittle tricky and reinstall itself.

For anyone else finding this tread later, instructions on how to get rid of the HP Mobile Data Protection System:

Uninstalling HP Mobile Data Protection Sensor - HP Support Forum - 1311745

holding off on the reinstall, but if I get another blue screen, will do

Also, left memtest86+ running for 9 hours or so, and it was on the 7th cycle. Came back a 1/2 hour later, and the system had rebooted and I was at the windows logon screen. Anyone know if memtest would reboot for any valid reason? Hate to throw money at the problem, but may replace the memory.
