Windows 7: BSOD 3B constantly when doing simple thing.

BSOD 3B constantly when doing simple thing.

Hello. I get BSOD'd everyday, but it happens most of the time when I watch a Youtube video or downloading a game from Steam, or just downloading in general I suppose. The stop code 3B pops up maybe 20 times a day, sometimes I can go a day without getting a crash. Also, I do receive other BSOD stop codes such as 7E,1A. I can't remember, but I heard they are related to the same error which is something to do with a driver. They don't happen as often as 3B.
Surprisingly, when I play games on a full load I NEVER BSOD only when doing simple things such as web browsing.

I have done some things people recommend on other sites like tom's hardware. I'v tried: Memtest, SFC /scannow, updating drivers. But no luck
My RAM made 2 passes with no errors on Memtest86 which took about an hour and a half or so. I wasn't too sure how long I should run that test.

SFC /SCANNOW does not find any problems or violations.

I am pretty sure I checked all or most drivers for updates, but it always says they are up to date, unless I have missed something.
Thanks for any help! I have been haunted by BSOD 3B for a long time...

I have uploaded my ZIP file.

The most recent .dmp files are corrupted, but the one from 29/08/2014 clearly points to Avast as the issue. Replace it with free MSE and monitor for further issues.

Corrupted? does that mean you cannot view those? But thank you so much! I will remove Avast and replace it with MSE. I will post update if it happens again with a new ZIP file.

I can only read them partially, but I suspect the bugcheck code in those is related to Avast.

Keep us updated on progress.

UPDATE:

While the removal of Avast has reduced the number of BSOD's by a lot, ( thanks for that ) unfortunately, I am still getting them.
Today I had a couple of BSOD. 7E and 3B, both these codes had "atikmdag.sys" below the stop code, then I had the usual 3B crash twice. I also had a 1E.

I have created a new file which I will upload, hopefully nothing is corrupted this time so you can see all
