Windows 7: Netio.sys causing BSOD

Begin by uninstalling CD virtualization programs such as Daemon Tools and Alcohol 120%. They use a driver, found in your dmp, sptd.sys, that is notorious for causing BSODs. Use this SPTD uninstaller when you're done: DuplexSecure - Downloads

You have an obsolete driver on your system. Obsolete drives can and do cause conflicts and crashes. I could not find the program this driver is associated with; but it looks to be a game. Uninstall the software.

I also find one other out of date driver:

atikmdag.sys Fri Apr 24 06:50:20 2009 - ATI Video driver. See if you can update Catylist Control Center and this driver. If not, remove the Catalyst Control Center and only install the Display Driver Global Provider of Innovative Graphics, Processors and Media Solutions | AMD

After taking care of these three drivers, reboot and see how your system runs. Post back and let us know.
Uninstalled Alcohol 120% and removed a few old games which seemed to get rid of atikmdag. Just read on the ATI website that they don't officially support Windows 7 (At least not with previously released cards). It did say that the Vista drivers do seem to work and the latest release is fairly recent so I'll try that next.

Don't use Windows Update to Download. Uninstall Everest Home Edition and Download Microsoft Security Essentials and install it. Realtek

Hope this helps,

Edit: Sorry Carl i didn't know you were looking at the Dump files
Done, Done, Done, Done and Done.

As soon as the ATI drivers are finished downloading, I'll try pushing the PC a little and report back.

Thank you both.

EDIT: Installed the ATI drivers, rebooted and ran a few fairly intensive programs and so far it's all gone smoothly. Thanks!

That is really good news. Thank you for updating us and reporting what you have done. I suspect that Alcohol was a major cause of your crashes. Hmm, that doesn't sound right. I suspect that the program, Alcohol, was a major cause of your crashes. Run your system for two or three days and post back. If you are still BSOD free, we will ask the moderators to mark this thread as solved. Fingers crossed! :)
