Windows 7: IRQL Not less or equal BSOD

IRQL Not less or equal BSOD

My computer when first built had a driver issue causing the blue screens. After the certain driver was found, it was running smoothly up until 2 days ago where I received another BSOD stating IRQL not less or equal. I also received one today as well.
I was wondering if anyone could help me solve this problem.
I've also ran Memory Diagnostic Tool and it said that there were no problems found.

Sorry for the late response.

STOP 0x0000001A: MEMORY_MANAGEMENT = Usual causes: Device driver, memory, kernel
STOP 0x0000000A: IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL = Usual causes: Kernel mode driver, System
Service, BIOS, Windows, Virus scanner, Backup tool, compatibility.

Problematic software:
Code:
Start Menu\Programs\Avira	Public:Start Menu\Programs\Avira	Public
Suggest you to uninstall Avira antivirus and all its components.
It does cause BSoDs on some computers.

Download and install MSE. Run a full scan once updated.
Microsoft Security Essentials - Free Antivirus for Windows

* Run the system file check to repair any damaged windows files within windows:
SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

* To make sure your hard drive is good run:
Disk Check

* Additional: Check your ram for errors for 8 passes (overnight):
RAM - Test with Memtest86+

Do these and report back, observe further crashes.
We'll do more troubleshooting.

Okay I am also sorry for the late reply and thank you for helping.
I have uninstalled Avira and did a scan with MSE. No threats were detected so I don't think a virus or anything malicious is the problem here.
I did run a system file check and it said that I had some unrepairable things but I have ran it before and it stated one of my fonts was messed up which I never thought would be too serious. I'll look through it again later though if I get another BSOD.
I am going to do a disc check tomorrow and run Memtest tonight for 8 passes to see how that goes.
So far however the computer has been booted up for an hour with no problems so perhaps it was just Avira.

I'll let you know how the memtest and hard drive check works for me tomorrow.

No problem about the late reply.

Run the file checker few more times, it may repair the damaged files.
If not, upload the CBS files here, I will have a friend take a look at it.

Keep us posted. :)

Last night when I was about to boot memtest my computer got a bsod on the login screen which gave me the error code 1a which is memory related I believe. So Avira probably wasn't the cause for the problem.
Now is there any driver that could cause this? Or is it more than likely faulty RAM?

Go ahead and check your ram for 8 passes (on each stick if possible)
If you don't want do it that way - insert one stick in your computer at a time and see how your computer performs on that stick.

But I'd still suggest you to run the test for 8 passes.

Memtest stated that there were no errors with the RAM.
I might do another 8 passes tonight just in case.
I also ran a Disk Check to fix errors and recover bad sectors while I was out. My computer hasn't been booted long enough to really tell a difference though.
