Windows 7: BSOD while laptop is idle... 3 times in the past 24 hours

BSOD while laptop is idle... 3 times in the past 24 hours

Hi, I'm new here, I'm sure you'll all be able to tell from my lack of computer knowledge...

I've been experiencing a BSOD every time I leave my laptop idle for even a short amount of time. I had a similar issue with the same computer back in April, when I took it to best buy to be checked (MISTAKE!), I was told it was virus related and they performed a full system restore. Now, I'm getting more BSOD and I have no clue why... I have Norton and I recently downloaded free version and it picked up on one treat and two tracking cookies. I still got a BSOD even after quarantining the threats.

I went ahead and made up a minidump zip file... If anyone needs more info from me I'll do my best to try and find it for you.
