Windows 7: Frequent BSOD's, ntoskrnl and usb drivers

Before you posted that I restarted, Bluescreened as I restarted then again on start up. Windows went to the repair screen and used an older restore point (one that still had the regular bluscreens, but not the wonky ones on shut down or restart). Now shutting down and restarting is fine. Just created another restore point and enabled driver verifier. I promise I won't mess with anything else lol, and I really appreciate the help.

There's nothing to promise, we're here as guidance, we don't own your PC so what you do is up to you.
However while you are coming to us for help we recommend no altering any settings as it makes it harder for us to help you.

Just upload any new dump files.

Doctor, Doctor - a couple ideas, I have.

Based on what the OP has written, I'm thinking the reinstall kind of points to a hardware issue. One can not just put different RAM strips into the PC and expect the PC to function well. PCs are like wizards. You need to treat them with tender loving care. If the motherboard website says no to a curtain type of RAM strip, then you should not use those strips in that PC. Of course, if he has downloaded drivers from bad sites, then you could have a bad driver, too.

As for the GPU, perhaps Furmark is worth a try.

A variation on your Signature's If it ain't broke, don't fix it. I say, If it ain't broke, don't fix it. Give it to me.

I'm not too savvy with computer hardware or computers in general. I wasn't aware certain motherboards don't function well with specific ram or that they'd have a list of working ram on their website. With that said, I don't think the website said "no" to my specific ram, it just wasn't on the supported list. The ram that I had put in was the one I had used in a previous functioning computer and I was just testing whether or not my new ram was the problem.

The new RAM worked fine for a month when it was underclocked by default. I switched to the XMP profile the day I got my new video card and that's when I believe problems started occurring. So I turned XMP off and still had BSOD's, I also tried to set the clock speed and voltage manually in BIOS because I noticed the XMP profile set the voltage incorrectly. That didn't work either, unless I set it up incorrectly, which might be a a real possibility lol

"One can not just put different RAM strips into the PC and expect the PC to function well."

My computer is 4 months old and all the parts were completely new, I only put my old ram in when I was testing things to try and find the problem. I now know to look at the motherboard's website when purchasing new ram though

Unfortunately I disagree, just because he has re-installed Windows that doesn't mean it's a hardware issue at all.
I have had multiple cases, myself included where re-installing doesn't fix the problem because there is a common factor with each re-install (excluding hardware). There is probably a driver responsible that we can't identify that the user thinks is doing no harm.

The driver responsible appears to be linked with your Intel Smart Technology Driver.

An update might help but for the time being I suggest removing it.
Especially if it's unnecessary.

If you must update it then please go here.

Was this from my most recent dump file? I don't see Intel Smart Connect under the list of programs I can uninstall and I don't believe I installed it again after reinstalling Windows

I'm on a lot of threads so I can't say to be honest.

Can you please enable Driver Verifier by follow these instructions.

Driver Verifier - Enable and Disable

Driver Verifier is enabled currently, I think I had it on for my last dump file as well. That's the only one in the thread I've had it enabled for though, still waiting for my next BSOD to upload it here.

Apologies if I'm wrong and it wasn't enabled for that one though, but I believe it was.
