That's common "misinformation".

Microsoft Goes From Cellar to Stellar in New Antivirus Test

I've been using it since it was made available. Also installed it on my XP machines. I've never had a problem or a BSOD. No single AV will catch everything so safe browsing and common sense is as much a part of AV as having another stand alone scanner like MBAM.

Is MalwareBytes worth buying? Or does the free version do just as well?

I've had more BSOD since uninstalling Trend Micro

Plus many pages (including this site) don't load completely. In this state I am unable to include the attachments for the BSOD.

I've started a full scan of MSE 45 minutes ago. How long do they usually take?

A lot of the guys here have purchased the Pro version of MBAM. It is a real-time AV and scanner where as the free version is just a scanner. Just about anything would be better than TM. I counted no less than 99 modules loaded for TM. That's a ridiculous number and uses up a lot of resources. Most AVs use 4-8 and even eight shows a noticeable burden on the system.

Go back to the System Startup list or Clean Start (Boot) tutorial and enable the following two ONLY (besides MSE), then reboot.
Akamai NetSession...
Ralink Wireless...

Update Chrome. Be careful of extra software that may load with it.

I found and loaded up "Ralink Writer Registry" and "Ralink Writer Registry 64", but I didn't see anything called Akamai NetSession

It was on your startup list before. You should be able to just click (check mark) the box. I hope you didn't delete them.

No I didn't. I was looking in the wrong area.

What do I do now? Just wait until another BSOD?

Yes. If you get another BSOD, upload the file group again.

It's down to a process of elimination now.

I forgot to mention; you need to reboot after enabling those two drivers in startup.

I forgot to clean out the previous BSOD so the attachment will reflect older ones as well. My bad. One of the BSOD had to do with Ralink again, but I don't know about the other one.

The dumps are all over the place. Something is corrupting memory on the fly. Did AdwCleaner report anything when you ran it?

Download Autoruns from here: Autoruns for Windows

Unzip the files to a folder then double click on Autoruns.exe. No install is necessary.
Do NOT uncheck any boxes in the main screen. In the menu bar, click on File and select Save. Save the file to your desktop. This will create a file named Autoruns.arn. Zip this file and upload it.

Added: Forgot to mention - Before saving the file, click on Options in the menu bar then select Filter Options. Make sure all boxes are unchecked EXCEPT "Verify code signatures". If the Rescan button becomes active, click it.

It should look like the image below.
