BSOD seemingly random most today are with FireFox open

Hi:
I hope you can help. Had five BSODs today at most inappropriate times, of course.
I have FF open and also a Citrixsession open to my works network, though not sure if either of these are re;ated. Not doing anything intensive - and BAM! BSOD.
Any help in finding out what's going wrong will be so welcome!
Thanks!

Code:
fffff880`04e80418  fffff880`022b40a2Unable to load image \SystemRoot\system32\DRIVERS\avgidsdrivera.sys, Win32 error 0n2

Uninstall AVG using AVG Remover. Use Microsoft Security Essentials as your antivirus with windows inbuilt firewall, and free MBAM as the on demand scanner.

Download, install and update those, and then run full system scans with both of them, one by one.

Well, do deeper scans. Scan the system for possible virus infection with the following programs.
Let us know the results. When multiple ports (storage and pointer) are failing and there is an ataport.sys error, there is a fair chance of malware.

Yes... the link you put above takes me to Kaspersky Internet Security | Download free Trial | Kaspersky - running the downloaded .exe it asks if I want to remove MS Security Essentials.
I had another BSOD last night, this would after I uninstalled AVG using the tool. Do you want the .dmp file?
Very appreciative of all help given and offered !!!

You are getting KIS, which will lead to uninstall another antivirus. KIS is not the target one here.

Get TDSSKiller from here: Download Kaspersky TDSSKiller - MajorGeeks

A quick update: Anti-rootkit finds nothing, was just about to create a bootable USB thumb drive and got another BSOD. So I am leaning away from AVG being teh culprit now, had at least two BSOD's since uninstall.

Many anti virus programs when you install them will request that you remove other anti virus programs.

You only want one anti virus program install at one time.

I would recommend not using AVG and remove it completely if you haven't already. Just like Arc requested.

**Don't assume you only have one problem.

**When you get another BSOD please post a fresh set of logs for Arc to review.

Look I haven't gone through the whole trhead but are you overclocking? and do see this BSOD with WIN7_DRIVER_FAULT and 0x1E - Microsoft Community

A general scan with these might help

http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/433-disk-check.html < if necessary include the /f and /r in the command line as per Option2
As for the AVG personally I gave it away years ago because it was crap and nothing I have seen since - especially my partners laptop - had convinced me otherwise. If you want to check it is all removed should you decide to get rid of it then check in regedit and look in Software in both the HKEY's - CURRENT USER and LOCAL MACHINE
- BUT DO THIS FIRST JUST IN CASE YOU HIT THE WRONG KEYS!!

Seemingly Random BSOD
Hello, I've been dealing with with BSOD for sometime now(came out of nowhere). I now know that my earlier BSOD were most likely caused because of my GPU drivers so I've done a clean install of the current driver version but I'm still getting BSOD at random.

I've been plagued by odd problems since making this custom build about a month ago, but the latest is the increasing frequency of BSODs.
