Random BSOD: Memory Management, PFN_LIST_CORRUPT, DRIVER IRQL...

This problem has been haunting me for several months now, its been fairly random but seems to be increasing in frequency. Re-installing Windows has not solved the problem, nor has updating the drivers. After some research on Google I have a good feeling that its a driver problem, but my inexperience and lack of knowledge is not helping my diagnosis at all. I ran Driver Verifier with special pool enabled and was only able to get Windows to boot in Safe Mode where I ran System Restore to get back to Normal Mode. I believe that the .dmp files that I found in my MiniDump folder were the result of multiple attempts to boot Windows in Normal Mode with Driver Verifier enabled, before I figured that it wasn't going to work unless I booted in Safe Mode. I haven't been able to get much farther than that and was hoping that someone could take a look at what I found so far and point me in the right direction at least.

Code:
fffff880`0b2b7e58  fffff880`010069db*** WARNING: Unable to verify timestamp for sptd.sys
*** ERROR: Module load completed but symbols could not be loaded for sptd.sys
 sptd+0x19db
Daemon Tools, Alcohol 120% and Power Archiver Pro uses SCSI Pass Through Direct (SPTD), which is a well known BSOD causer. Uninstall the program at first. Then download SPTD standalone installer from Disk-Tools.com, and execute the downloaded file as guided below :
  • Double click to open it.
  • Click this button only:
  • If it is grayed out, as in the picture, there is no more SPTD in your system, and you just close the window.
BTW, you have two versions of Daemon installed!!!! ?
Code:
Start Menu\Programs\DAEMON Tools Lite
Start Menu\Programs\DAEMON Tools Pro
One of them alone is enough to cause trouble!!! Uninstall them both. And, tell us, is it very essential to mount an image drive for you? Can you work in some other way? There are programs like 7-zip they can unzip any iso, so the basic work will be equally done by it; at a maximum, you may miss some animated DVD menu screen.

Free up the startup.
  1. Click on the Start button
  2. Type “msconfig (without quotes), click the resulting link. It will open the System Configuration window.
  3. Select the “Startup” tab.
  4. Deselect all items other than the antivirus.
  5. Apply > OK
  6. Accept the restart.

Thank you very much for your quick reply. I have uninstalled Daemon Tools (the Pro Version was just a leftover shortcut) and SPTD as well. I am glad to learn about this issue with SPTD, if 7-zip can handle all the image files then I have no need for Daemon Tools.
Are there any other drivers that could be causing these BSOD problems? I usually see PFN_CORRUPT_LIST most of the time, DRIVER IRQL LESS OR NOT EQUAL has also appeared quite a number of times and also Memory Management.
