Since the PC seems to be crashing in about a minute or so, obviously you won't be able to do a normal AV scan. So:
Boot into safe mode - with networking (to give you internet access)
open a browser and run: ESET Online Virus Scanner | ESET
And see if it picks up any nasties.
Also download and install MBAM
Run MBAM in safemode as well.
The crash dumps all show system files which doesn't point to a specific culprit. Essentially the BSOD code doesn't matter that much.
See how you go after running the scans.
