BSOD and system crashes

I keep having random system crashes and the BSOD. The computer will work great for a few days and then randomly start shutting off and getting BSOD every few minutes.
Hoping someone can help me.

Let's take a look at a couple of things please...

System Health Report: Go to START | type perfmon /report | save as HTML file... Zip it up and title it Perfmon, and upload it here please.

Also, please run Driver Verifier:

in an elevated (run as admin) CMD prompt:

Please upload any minidumps from subsequent crashes for analysis.
Afterwards, when this is all over, go back to default settings by running:

Appears from your logs that you are currently not running an antivirus, or at least one that is not recognized by the Action Center (Windows).

Also, it appears you are running a P2P program, which can be a distributor of common malware (viruses, spyware, etc.), and it would be best if I have you run a scan before we begin other diagnostics.

Please do the following:

Scan for malware

Please download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware from
Alternate link:
(Note: if you already have the program installed, just follow the directions. No need to re-download or re-install!)

Double Click mbam-setup.exe to install the application.

(Note: if you already have the program installed, open Malwarebytes from the Start Menu or Desktop shortcut, click the Update tab, and click Check for Updates, before doing the scan as instructed below!)
  • Make sure a checkmark is placed next to Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and Launch Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, then click Finish.
  • If an update is found, it will download and install the latest version.
  • Once the program has loaded, select "Perform Quick Scan", then click Scan.
  • The scan may take some time to finish,so please be patient.
  • When the scan is complete, click OK, then Show Results to view the results.
  • Make sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.
  • When disinfection is completed, a log will open in Notepad and you may be prompted to Restart. If you are prompted to restart, please allow it to restart your computer. Failure to do this, will cause the infection to still be active on the computer.
  • Please save the log to a location you will remember.
  • The log is automatically saved by MBAM and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab in MBAM.
  • The log can also be found at C:\Documents and Settings\Username\Application Data\Malwarebytes\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\Logs\log-date.txt or at C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\Logs\log-date.txt
  • Copy and paste the entire report in your next reply.

I am running virus protection, I have microsoft security essentials.
I don't download files with malware and have scanned for it before so I doubt that is it. I ran Malwarebytes and it did not find anything.

Here is a minidump from today after having driver verifier running.
