Windows 7: BSOD event 41(63) Kernel-Power after turning PC on

BSOD event 41(63) Kernel-Power after turning PC on

When I pressed the power button on my PC to turn it on I got a blue screen with the message that the PC had to shut down to avoid hardware damage. Then Windows recovered after an unexpected shut down: The system has rebooted without cleanly shutting down first. This error could be caused if the system stopped responding, crashed, or lost power unexpectedly”. My PC is connected to the APC SMT1500 Uninterruptable Power Supply.
It happened a second time (3/12/2013, 6/20/2013) since 2010, when I assembled this PC with clean installation of Windows 7 Prox64 (SP1) on the Intel X25-M SSD.

I uploaded “” file created by SF Diagnostic Tool.

Is the firmware for your SSD up-to-date?

Check for one and see if the stability returns.

Keep less stuff at the start-up. Only anti-virus, this helps avoid driver conflicts and improves time to log in to windows.

a 3-month old CBS log isn't really much use - please follow the Windows Update Posting Instructions and post the requested data.

There is a"new" CBS.log file, created on 6/27/2013, in the Intel SSD file from my previous post. I have never had "3. Windows Update Error Codes", so I have nothing to provide. I don' allow Windows to update drivers automatically, I do it myself from Station-Drivers: le site de drivers, bios, firmwares avec un forum d'aide.
Requested data are attached.

Both SFC and CheckSUR are clear of significant errors - those showing in the CheckSUR are 'normal' for a machine with IE10 installed.

However, there are problems showing in the background CBS.log

There are over 2000 variations on that theme in the current log.
This could well mean that the Components registry hive is corrupted - and a repair install is likely to be the best cure.

I reinstalled Win 7+all apps from working partition image (AcronisTIH). I just wanted to find the program that causes this crash. I learned a lot of new things.
Thank you very much for your help.
