Problem Devices:
Realtek PCIe GBE Family Controller	PCI\VEN_10EC&DEV_8168&SUBSYS_16D51043&REV_06\47574716684CE00000	This device is disabled.
Were you aware the above device is disabled? Was there a reason you disabled it? I would recommend enabling it and making sure the drivers are up to date for it. You should be able to find the drivers at the laptop's support site.

Security Software: ??? Make sure to install security software. I recommend either of these:
After installing your security software, update it, and then run full scans today with each program. Report back the results of the scans.

And no, Sandboxie is not adequate security...

I recommend that you remove MSI Afterburner; it is known to cause system instability.

You have a lot of potential problems on your system; way too many programs installed and running. One of the latest crashes blames Connectify. Nearly all crashes are network related, so they may also be due to Connectify.
