Windows 7: Sudden frequent BSODs

Keep running scans until things come up clean at least 2 times in a row. If you run out of scans, use the Rescue CD entries also. Once it's cleaned up, then see if you get further BSOD's.

I'm going to bow out now, since my intent wasn't to hijack this thread - but rather to suggest another approach.
Thanks for the work that you've done - and good luck to you!
Thank you very much for your input usasma, it is greatly appreciated!

No hijack man I always welcome additional input.

And since we did find some infection until we are sure it's routed out there's no point in trying to debug further anyhow.

Ok i ran the verifier for 2 days straight and it didn't crash not even once. Music and videos were sometimes choppy and laggy but i guess that's cause the verifier was running in the background. Running the malware scan seems to have worked!

Can't thank you enough for the help guys, you saved me a lot of trouble!!

You can disable driver verifier now, it would have caused crashes right away if there was a significant driver problem. ...and there really is no benefit to having it run all the time. Just follow the instructions in the thread linked above to turn it back off.

I started getting blue screens again last week. This time not as often as before. I've been getting a blue screen randomly every 24-36 hours. I ran full scans with avira professional and Malware bytes and both didn't find anything malicious.

Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance!

The debugger is pointing directly to your intel wifi device (I think it's a 5100 series just based on the driver name)
I suggest reinstalling it, and that you also consider uninstalling/reinstalling your av/security software, in case they have gotten over zealous and are blocking needed services or resources from the device.

Probably caused by : NETw5s64.sys ( NETw5s64+b6bd )

An attempt was made to access a pageable (or completely invalid) address at an
interrupt request level (IRQL) that is too high.  This is usually
caused by drivers using improper addresses.
If a kernel debugger is available get the stack backtrace.
Arg1: 0000000000000008, memory referenced
Arg2: 0000000000000002, IRQL
Arg3: 0000000000000000, bitfield :
    bit 0 : value 0 = read operation, 1 = write operation
    bit 3 : value 0 = not an execute operation, 1 = execute operation (only on chips which support this level of status)
