various BSOD...ARRRGH!

Hello and first I would like to thank you for taking the time to read this and any help you can provide..

Well I have been battling this problem for a week. I like to think I aqnm pretty computer savy but this one has me stumped. I opened a file on the internet and it GOT ME.. Computer locked up and restarted... now i can ony go into safe mode.. I have tried the following.. Repair my computer, Ran virus scans, took HD out and attached to another computer ran scan, removed all hardware and restarted.. removed Ram, ran scandisk.. chkdisk, bootsect /nt60 All..... all to no avail...
I have gotten the following BSOD's
IRQ_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL (Mostly)
KMODE_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED
REFERENCE_BY_POINTER
SYSTEMS_SERVICE_EXCEPTION (mostly)
in looking at the .dmp files the BSOD seems to center around the ntoskrnl.exe driver.. but I am not sure what or where it comes from

PLEASE HELP.. I hate to have to reinstall everything..

I have an image but have been having issues with windows 7 finding it on an external drive AAARRRRGH!!

Specs are athlon phenom 9500 2.20 Mhz
8GB Ram
ASUS MB

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

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).
Code:
ASACPI.sys        fffff880`04a00000    fffff880`04a08000    0x00008000    0x42476c4c    28/03/2005 06:30:36
Update your Acronis software, the driver it uses is obsolete http://www.acronis.com/main.html
Code:
tifsfilt.sys        fffff880`06400000    fffff880`06417000    0x00017000    0x46d56889    29/08/2007 16:37:29                
timntr.sys        fffff880`0189d000    fffff880`0194d000    0x000b0000    0x46d568bf    29/08/2007 16:38:23
Remove any LogMeIn software as the process was involved in the crash
Code:
PROCESS_NAME:  LogMeIn.exe
