Windows 7: BSOD: "Reference by Pointer" Need Help!

BSOD: "Reference by Pointer" Need Help!

I have some problem on my Toshiba M645 Laptop.
The blue screen "Reference by Pointer" came out when I played the video while doing
another graphic works and P2P uTorrent [HDD read & write hard in the same time].

I was already do "sfc /scannow" in command prompt and it said
"Windows Resource Protection did not find any integrity violations".
Maybe it was caused by driver problem, please check my dump files & help.
Thanks in advance.

Laptop: Toshiba Satellite M645-1014X

RAM: Samsung 4GB 2x2 Dual Channel

Don't use any cleaning registry software unless you know what you are doing because it can mess up your windows.

Your latest dmp = REFERENCE_BY_POINTER (18) = usual caused by 3rd drivers.

Then enable driver verifier to stress out your drivers.
If there is any driver violation your windows will crash, then attach the new files here.

Arg1: 0000000000000000, Object type of the object whose reference count is being lowered
Arg2: fffffa8008dcc790, Object whose reference count is being lowered
Arg3: 0000000000000002, Reserved
Arg4: fffffa80077e7818, Reserved
    The reference count of an object is illegal for the current state of the object.
    Each time a driver uses a pointer to an object the driver calls a kernel routine
    to increment the reference count of the object. When the driver is done with the
    pointer the driver calls another kernel routine to decrement the reference count.
    Drivers must match calls to the increment and decrement routines. This bugcheck
    can occur because an object's reference count goes to zero while there are still
    open handles to the object, in which case the fourth parameter indicates the number
    of opened handles. It may also occur when the objectís reference count drops below zero
    whether or not there are open handles to the object, and in that case the fourth parameter
    contains the actual value of the pointer references count.
