BSOD Windows 7 x64

It seems to have coincided with installation of Norton Internet Security.

Thanks for any help I can get with this problem.

Hi pilotsteve and welcome to SF

Bugcheck didn't tell me much so,
First of all, Third-party internet security programs are notorious for causing crashes and there is no exception for norton
I recommend you to removie norton just for testing, to see how things goes next

You may also remove iTunes, as GEARAspiWDM.sys belongs to it.

I removed iTunes but left Norton IS in place. Set computer to not shutdown automatically and run all day.

No BSOD so far.
