other than that the system runs just fine when its connected to the internet, playing latest games, ps etc

the only sw running during the BSOD are mse, comodo free firewall and utorrent client version 2.2 (non beta)

I would uninstall your Graphic Driver and install a fresh copy of it. Once you have uninstalled it, use Driver Sweeper to wipe out the rest of the driver files. Then install a fresh version from ASUS Site.

Driver Sweeper - Guru3D - Driver Sweeper

Secondly, uninstall uTorrent and use BitTorrent. It's fast, easy to use, more stable and reliable.
BitTorrent Website and Download Page - BitTorrent
If all of those don't work, uninstall Daemon Tools and use the utility: DuplexSecure - Downloads
Select Uninstall - DO NOT select reinstall.

Please let me know if you are having problems.

CCleaner is an alternative.

Once you have uninstalled it and wiped out the left overs, download a fresh version from the manufacture site - ATI (AMD)???

You mention that you use ATI, but on your system specs, it says ASUS.
What graphic card are you actually using?

Also, are you following my advices??? (uninstall Daemon Tools)

Please let me know if you are having difficulties
