Windows 7: BSOD, ntoskrnl.exe as cause listed in BlueScreenView

BSOD, ntoskrnl.exe as cause listed in BlueScreenView

Hello all,
Thanks in advance for the help.

I installed Marvel Heroes earlier this week. It promptly yelled at me to update my drivers and pointed me to Intel's driver utility. From here I updated the video card. On top of that, I also ran the Thinkpad utility to update every thing else that was listed. I think the included the wireless card, a BIOS, update and 4-5 other items I'm not sure about.

Since then, I have been getting blue screens fairly regularly. Playing the game, using VPN (Nortel in this instance), starting up, shutting down, and just random instances. I've uninstalled all programs that have been installed this week (game, wire shark, some others), I've uninstalled all VPN software as well as VNC and GoTo Meeting, and I've tried rolling my drivers back and reinstalling them. All with no luck. I currently only have 4 BSOD minidumps because I ran CCLeaner after uninstalling everything. I also ran DriveSweeper after uninstalling the drivers, but I'm not sure I used it correctly.

I've turned on Verifier, but it was only having issues with drivers that I don't think have changed in a long, so I've considered them red herrings until someone smarter than me says differently.

Attached is the zipped that was requested in the FAQ. Let me know what else I can provide. Most of my system specs are listed in my profile. Let me know if I should throw them in here instead. Again, thank you for the help.

Furmark results

Read some other threads and saw advice about running Furmark.

I ran Furmark; it lasted about 5 seconds and then crashed. I received a notification icon stating
Display driver stopped responding and has recovered
Display driver NVIDIA Windows Kernel Mode Driver, Version 311.00 stopped responding has successfully recovered.
I also got a pop up that contained the following message:
NVIDIA OpenGL Driver
The NVIDIA OpenGL driver lost connection with the display
driver due to exceeding th eWindows Time-Out limit and is unable to continue.
The application must close.

Error code 7

Now when I try to run it it crashes immediately. I remember running this 2 days ago and it made it for 10 minutes before I closed it; no visible artifacts or issues.
