Windows 7: Random BSODs

I uninstalled Avira yesterday just before turning my computer off and running memtest. And it seems like that tool is for removing threats or something, not for removing Avira itself. Or am I misunderstanding something? By the way I got MSE and installed it. I'll try installing Malwarebytes too. Going to run a scan with one of the programs you mentioned.
Hmm.. Since I share this computer with my brother, he said he uninstalled the newer Intel HD Graphics driver and got one from here. I have no idea why he did that. Getting the new one again..

Ran some scans, everything seems fine. MSE, MBAM and Firewall are now my virus fighters. Graphics driver updated. And I haven't gotten a blue screen since yesterday. So maybe it's fixed?

Your crash dumps are not showing any finite probable cause.

Test your RAM modules for possible errors.
How to Test and Diagnose RAM Issues with Memtest86+
Run memtest for at least 8 passes, preferably overnight.

In memtest comes clean, enable Driver Verifier to monitor the drivers.
Driver Verifier - Enable and Disable
Run Driver Verifier for 24 hours or the occurrence of the next crash, whichever is earlier.

information   Information
Why Driver Verifier:
It puts a stress on the drivers, ans so it makes the unstable drivers crash. Hopefully the driver that crashes is recorded in the memory dump.

How Can we know that DV is enabled:
It will make the system bit of slow, laggy.

warning   Warning
Before enabling DV, make it sure that you have earlier System restore points made in your computer. You can check it easily by using CCleaner looking at Tools > System Restore.

If there is no points, make a System Restore Point manually before enabling DV.

Tip   Tip

Let us know the results, with the subsequent crash dumps, if any. Post it following the Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions.

Few most recent dump files should show something.

You were suggested to enable DV. See my earlier post.

I did enable it. I got a blue screen, then disabled verifier. But then I enabled it again today in the morning. Got another blue screen. So check the most recent two crash dump files from my last post.

I checked 5 latest (of today and yesterday) crash dumps. None of them is DV enabled.

After enabling DV run verifier /query command in a command prompt to ensure what DV is actually doing there.

I enabled verifier, got a blue screen. The blue screen showed up and it freezed. Collecting data for crash dump and initializing disk for crash dump things were not loading..
