Windows 7: Various BSODs, often 3b and ntoskrnl, no obvious reason

Various BSODs, often 3b and ntoskrnl, no obvious reason

I've been having BSODs for a couple of weeks that don't appear to be triggered by anything specific. I finally decided to reformat and start over.

I don't know if it helped, but it didn't get rid of them entirely. I reinstalled windows 7 (Ultimate x64) today, a few programs and drivers, and ran windows update. Even so, I've had many crashes already.

I think I've followed all the posting instructions here. Here's the ZIP of what's happened since the most recent install. Thanks for looking.
