Windows 7: Consistant BSOD's during random programs, often error 0xc0000005

Windows 7 Ultimate x64
Consistant BSOD's during random programs, often error 0xc0000005

As of late, (as in the past month since I re-installed windows 7 ultimate x64) I have been receiving frequent BSOD's (sometimes multiple per day) mostly during gaming and other hardware intensive programs as well as random times on youtube. Now I've sort have tolerated them lately as I am constantly doing my best to try and get to the bottom of them with each new BSOD (I've ran multiple tests such as memtest86, chkdsk, scans with Malwarebytes, keeping all my drivers up to date, deleting known BSOD causing drivers) and I have still haven't found anything abnormal that could be causing the situation so that leads me to my final option before reinstalling windows again and I would like to ask for a bit of help on this one as I know there is some very knowledgeable people here on these forums.

Also, if this is any help as well, I initially was running Rogers Internet Protection towards the beginning of the BSOD's and I have switched to MSE instead but with no prevail as far as stopping the BSOD's.

Any help would be greatly appreciated and I have attached the dump files, etc.

Windows 10, Home Clean Install

Based upon experience your problem is due to hardware. Before that testing lets go with what the dmp reports suggest, drivers
Prior to the test, update your video card, since it was mentioned more then once in the many dmp files that you have submittel
Driver Verifier
I'd suggest that you first backup your data and then make sure you've got access to another computer so you can contact us if problems arise. Then make a System Restore point (so you can restore the system using the Vista/Windows 7 Startup Repair feature).

In Windows 7 you can make a Startup Repair disk by going to Start....All Programs...Maintenance...Create a System Repair Disc - with Windows Vista you'll have to use your installation disk or the "Repair your computer" option at the top of the Safe Mode menu .

Then, here's the procedure:
- Go to Start and type in "verifier" (without the quotes) and press Enter
- Select "Create custom settings (for code developers)" and click "Next"
- Select "Select individual settings from a full list" and click "Next"
- Select everything EXCEPT FOR "Low Resource Simulation" and click "Next"
- Select "Select driver names from a list" and click "Next"
Then select all drivers NOT provided by Microsoft and click "Next"
- Select "Finish" on the next page.

Reboot the system and wait for it to crash to the Blue Screen. Continue to use your system normally, and if you know what causes the crash, do that repeatedly. The objective here is to get the system to crash because Driver Verifier is stressing the drivers out. If it doesn't crash for you, then let it run for at least 36 hours of continuous operation (an estimate on my part).

If you can't get into Windows because it crashes too soon, try it in Safe Mode.
If you can't get into Safe Mode, try using System Restore from your installation DVD to set the system back to the previous restore point that you created.

Windows 7 ultimate x64

1. If you have overclocked your system ..Set it back to defaults...

2. Your bios has updates as well as updates for other drivers as well

3. Update your windows to SP1

4. Disable all the startup items except for MSE by going to msconfig and the startup.

5. the last few BSOD were related to Nvidia graphics driver.... please reinstall it ...

6. You said you did the memtest ... how many passes did you do? You need to do atleast 6 to 8 passes... for each RAM at a time ..
