Windows 7: Constant freezing, BSOD driver has attempted to corrupt system

Constant freezing, BSOD driver has attempted to corrupt system

Hey everyone,

For ages, I've been having these issues of my laptop constantly freezing, crashing, programs not responding, etc. Well, I've finally decided to do something about it.

SPECS:
Device: HP Pavilion m6
Windows 7 x64
AMD A10-4600M Processor APU with Radeon 2.29GHz
RAM: 6GB
Available space on the C: drive: 330GB

The current problem: Windows will not start in normal mode. Upon entering the login screen, it will crash and enter a BDOS screen reading, "A device driver attempting to corrupt the system has been caught." I have been having problems with perpetual freezing for months now, but it has never gotten this bad before.
NOTE: Windows will run smoothly in safe mode, which is why I have narrowed the most probable cause to be a driver issue

Steps I have already taken:

-Ran CCleaner with no issues
-Defragged the disk with no issues
-Scanned for viruses with multiple antivirus programs (Vipre security, Malware bytes, and RogueKiller)
-Have gone into MSconfig and have disabled all startup programs and all startup services EXCEPT FOR MICROSOFT services
-I have attempted to do a system scan several times, but it would always get stuck at 64% of verification scan, even in safe mode
-I have checked the Event Viewer. The errors that appear at the time of the two most recent crashes are:
1. The DHCP Client service depends on the Ancillary Function Driver for Winsock service which failed to start because of the following error:
A device attached to the system is not functioning.
2. The DNS Client service depends on the NetIO Legacy TDI Support Driver service which failed to start because of the following error:
A device attached to the system is not functioning.
3. The following boot-start or system-start driver(s) failed to load:
AFD
DfsC
4. The following boot-start or system-start driver(s) failed to load:
discache
spld

-I have attempted to do a system restore. It made no difference to the situation.

I have attached the 3 most recent dump files. I cannot view them myself since I do not have the software and cannot download it due to being in safe mode


UPDATE: I have checked the device manager while in safe mode. There were no indicators . I'm not sure if that's because there are none or if it was because I was in safe mode
UPDATE 2: I have updated and repaired the ASUS network driver. No difference was made


Cheers

Wonderful, wonderful. Thank you for that. Any advice on how to fix it? I haven't really been able to find much on google other than "here! Come pay $150 to buy our registry cleaning software."
