BSOD with driver_irql_not_less_or_equal message

Built a new computer over the holidays and keep encountering a blue screen with this message on it after a few hours of use. The screen disappears before I can get the detailed error codes, but I was however to find this data as soon as my computer restarted

All the detailed specs can be found on my profile such as motherboard model number, ect.
The Windows 7 installation is new, and the hardware is brand new.

Any help would be appreciated, and I apologize ahead of time if I failed to follow the posting format for this type of thread, I am new here and I'm here because I want to solve this issue.
Happy Holidays.

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.

The problem was caused by a system file. This usually happens if you have corrupt system files, a hardware issue, or an underlying driver that is incompatible with Windows 7. For testing purposes, please uninstall Avast as it is known to cause blue screen errors in some systems. To uninstall, use the steps in avast! Uninstall Utility and install Microsoft Security Essentials - Free Antivirus for Windows in its place to run alongside Windows Firewall.

Thank you for your help :) I will take a look at that AV and see if my computer improves (no crashing or anything) One thing i should have noted before is that the blue screen would happen anywhere from 5-12 hours of computer use (leaving the computer running ect. ect.)

It may be an overheating issue or bad RAM, but we should do one step at a time to determine what fixes the problem. Take care of AV, and then we'll proceed with further steps if needed.

Have you had any crashes since replacing AVAST with MSE? Let us know if you still need help.

Upate: Since this was almost a year ago, this isn't probably going to be seen unless it is searched directly; however replacing avast with MSE worked wonders. Never was able to give proper thanks to this forum until now.
