Please help to interpret this BSOD

I was surfing on several tabs on IE8 when the PC froze. Symptoms of this before it happens will be the PC running heavily out of a sudden with noise as if there is a motor engine revving up and then it will hang. Can someone kindly help me ID what was causing it? Attached minidump file below and thanks in advance for the help.

CPU: P4 3.06
Video: ATI HD3850 agp
2GB memory
OS: W7 Ultimate 32bit

additional info: no overclocking, ran memtest86 for 24hrs with no errors

Hello and Welcome to SF !

We need the complete logs Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions

Based on the crash dump you attached it's pointing to Windows Kernel which may not be the problem. Lets start with basics

Run a Hardware Diagnostic !! « Captain Debugger follow this thread

Run SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

You have sptd.sys which is notorious for BSOD. Use this article and remove the driver DuplexSecure - FAQ

This is a very common bugcheck.  Usually the exception address pinpoints
the driver/function that caused the problem.  Always note this address
as well as the link date of the driver/image that contains this address.
Some common problems are exception code 0x80000003.  This means a hard
coded breakpoint or assertion was hit, but this system was booted
/NODEBUG.  This is not supposed to happen as developers should never have
hardcoded breakpoints in retail code, but ...
If this happens, make sure a debugger gets connected, and the
system is booted /DEBUG.  This will let us see why this breakpoint is
Arg1: c0000005, The exception code that was not handled
Arg2: 82549343, The address that the exception occurred at
Arg3: 80ebdc38, Trap Frame
Arg4: 00000000

EXCEPTION_CODE: (NTSTATUS) 0xc0000005 - The instruction at "0x%08lx" referenced memory at "0x%08lx". The memory could not be "%s".
