Damn BSODs

I keep getting BSODs, and they seem to be getting more frequent. The minidump seems to point to some kind of problem with ntoskrnl.exe

Wecome to the forums, try downloading Memtest86.com - Memory Diagnostic and run it 5 times probably faulty RAM due to corruption.

Looks like sptd.sys is causing the issue. SPTD is a compnent of many CD virtualization programs, such as Daemon Tools and Alcohol 120%. I suggest removing any such programs completely.

I've got 4 sticks of RAM (2x Corsair, & 2x Crucial Ballistix). 1 pair is getting at 1.8v, and the other pair is getting 2.0v (this is automatic and not my own settings). Could this be causing some kind of problem ?

Edit: Sorry Johnathan_King, I must have been writing after you posted without realising.

Possibly, but try removing the virtualization programs first.

Ok, I've uninstalled Alcahol 120% (and deleted sptd.sys). After rebooting, is there any way for me to test to see if it's worked, or is it simply a matter of waiting to see if I get another BSOD ?

There is a way to trigger a BSOD, but you really should wait for a real life test.

Here is some info I found: AMD Game Forums - ATIKMDAG.sys problems and TDR FAQ also uninstall your graphic card drivers and reinstall the latest ones from ATI.
