BSODs crashing system badly

The past 2 nights have been the worst of the BSODs, the computer crashes upon entering my windows password and sometimes has trouble booting back up, when trying to enter windows tonight after the crash the computer failed to boot. I have reinstalled windows before and the problem continues, memtest passed with 8 passes and no problems a while back. Attached are the files you are asked to provide during BSOD assessment plus the minidumps, please help.

Dump blames nvlddmkm.sys, your nVidia Graphics Driver, do the followings...
- Boot into safe mode with networking
- Uninstall the nVidia Graphic Drivers
- Use driver sweeper to remove leftover nVidia display driver files Guru3D - Driver Sweeper
- Install the latest drivers Drivers - Download NVIDIA Drivers
- Reboot into normal mode

Do you have ZoneAlarm installed on your computer?

I used Guru3d and followed those steps on january 30th, no new updates since, I only did the graphics part of the driver set, the drivers I downloaded also updated the HD sound, 3d driver, and one other thing. And no I don't have ZoneAlarm installed.

Explorer keeps crashing and random BSODS
I have been driven insane by unexpected BSODS and also from time to time Windows Explorer keeps crashing on me. I updated my Nvidia drivers and I am sure I don't have any malware running. I'm hoping I can get some idea through the BSODS as to what's going on.
