To begin your troubleshooting, you should eliminate any possible cause of conflict and BSOD's.
Please uninstall any CD virtualization programs such as Daemon Tools and Alcohol 120%. They use a driver, found in your dump, sptd.sys, that is notorious for causing BSODs. Use this SPTD uninstaller when you're done: DuplexSecure - Downloads. Select delete; do not select reinstall.
Here is an alternative virtualization program that does not user the sptd.sys driver:
Freeware MagicISO Virtual CD/DVD-ROM(MagicDisc) Overview
Next, completely uninstall Avira. Avira is known to cause BSOD's on some Win 7 systems. Download and install Microsoft Security Essentials in its place. Also, uninstall Super AntiSpware. Many third party antimalware programs cause BSOD's. You can download and install Malwarebytes. It generally runs well with win 7.

Now, complete uninstall ZoneAlarm using this removal tool: ZA is a well known and documented cause of BSOD's on many Win 7 systems. Make sure Windows Firewall is turned on.

I see one out of date driver loaded on your system. Outdated drivers can and do cause memory corruption and BSOD's. Update this driver:
nvstor.sys Wed May 20 02:45:37 2009 - nVidia Storage Drivers
How to update drivers -
- I have listed links to most of the drivers in the code box above. Please use the links there to see what info I've found about those drivers.
- search Google for the name of the driver
- compare the Google results with what's installed on your system to figure out which device/program it belongs to
- visit the web site of the manufacturer of the hardware/program to get the latest drivers (DON'T use Windows Update or the Update driver function of Device Manager).
- if there are difficulties in locating them, post back with questions and someone will try and help you locate the appropriate program.

- - The most common drivers are listed on this page:
Driver Reference
- - Driver manufacturer links are on this page:
Drivers and Downloads

Follow the above recommendations. Let's see how your system does and if the above actions solve the problem. If you get another BSOD, upload the dumps to us and we will take the next steps to look at your hibernation issue. Hopefully, updating the driver and removing the third party programs will solve the problem. Please update us.
