Windows 7: Bluescreen on Startup

Bluescreen on Startup

I am having an issue with blue screens. Basically all I can say is that the blue screens have been happening at system start up after I enter the password. I've tried memory swap and I did not have this problem before. It started happening immediately after a system lock-up when I had multiple apparently script-heavy pages opening simultaneously and two copies of World of Warcraft running (do not ask). The odd thing is I can boot up in safe mode with no issue whatsoever, it's just the main windows which leads me to believe one of my boot files is corrupt. With no access to a windows 7 CD to repair and not wanting to part with the money it would take to obtain said disk, I am wondering if there are alternatives. Dump records incoming, though according to a program called BlueScreenView, 3/4 blue screens are the result of a driver known as ntoskrnl.exe, where as the other (first) one highlights atapi.sys and ntoskrnl.exe

Virus scans come up negative, though in my experience that means pretty much nothing. A system restore to Februrary 1st (last critical update) yielded no results. Tried a memory swap but unfortunately I only have 2 sticks and both yielded the same error. BSOD looked something like this.

STOP: 0x0000000a (0x0000000000000008 0x0000000000000002 0x0000000000000000 0xfffff80002c69d29)

It highlights atapi.sys and ntoskrnl.exe with the following address: atapi.sys+25c9

Then theres the following:

STOP: 0x0000001e (0xffffffffc0000005, 0xfffff80002c74cd8, 0x0000000000000000, 0xffffffffffffffff)

This one only highlights ntoskrnl.exe with the following address: ntoskrnl.exe+70740

The third dump reveals the following:

STOP: 0x0000001e (0xffffffffc0000005, 0xfffff800020d1cd8, 0x0000000000000000, 0xffffffffffffffff)

This error highlights ntoskrnl.exe with the following address: ntoskrnl.exe+70740

Finally the latest error:

STOP: 0x0000000a (0x0000000000000000, 0x0000000000000002, 0x0000000000000000, 0xfffff80002cdc2b3)

This error highlights ntoskrnl.exe with the following address: ntoskrnl.exe+70740

The following link is a download for a file named minidump.rar which contains the information on the above errors. Any possible help would be greatly appreciated.

Caused by driver: ntoskrnl.exe at address ntoskrnl.exe+70740

The download has been updated with the dump file. I figure by now no one has downloaded it yet.

Please remove any CD virtualization programs such as Daemon Tools, Alcohol 120% or PowerISO. They use a driver, found in your dmp, sptd.sys, that is notorious for causing BSODs. Use this SPTD uninstaller when you're done: DuplexSecure - Downloads
You can use MagicDisc as an alternative.

ASACPI.sys the 2005 version is a huge cause of BSOD's

The 2005 version of this driver is a known BSOD cause.
Please visit this link: ASUSTeK Computer Inc.-Support- download_item_mkt
Scroll down to the Utilities category, then scroll down to the "ATK0110 driver for WindowsXP/Vista/Windows 7 32&64-bit " (it's about the 8th item down).
Download and install it.
Go to C:\Windows\System32\drivers to check and make sure that the ASACPI.sys file is date stamped from 2009 or 2010 (NOT 2005).
