Windows 7: BSOD after updating Nvidia drivers

Windows 7 Ultimate X64 SP1

I don't think the CPU is bad if it passed IBT at 62C max. Running it at high or more can cause BSODs a lot.
Someone else will have to analyze your dumps for you. :)

Your Sophos Anti-Virus On-Access Driver seems to be causing problems, please remove the program completely and then install these free and proven alternatives which work best with the operating system due to their lightweight nature on system resources and compatibility.

Install and perform full scans with:

Remember to install the free version of Malwarebytes not the free trail; untick the free trial box during installation. MSE is the most lightweight and compatible with the Windows 7 operating system

Ok, I've uninstalled Sophos and am installing malwarebytes and MSE.
I'll update again if I have anymore problems, thankyou for your help!

So after running full scans with both Malwarebytes and MSE, my computer was clean (apart from some registry files found by Malwarebytes, which I removed).
However, playing GW2 today I got another blue screen, this time memory_management 1a (minidump attached). This seems to be my most common one, however I can't seem to narrow down the problem.

-I've run memtest86+ twice and it has run both times no errors over 9-10 passes.
-I've ran FurMark once with no problems
-I've ran IBT three times, with only a blue screen occuring during the Very High test, Standard and High tests were passes.

BugCheck 1A, {403, fffff68000477f00, caa0000027a2b867, fffff68000477e00}

Probably caused by : ntkrnlmp.exe ( nt! ?? ::FNODOBFM::`string'+3211c )
Usual causes:  Device driver, memory, kernel
This bugcheck indicates that the page table and PFNs are out of sync, parameters 3 and 4 differ quite sustainability, and therefore I believe at the moment it more of a software problem.

There also seems to be a pending IRP associated with the thread, since this is a Minidump, I'm not able to gather the IRP stack and any associated drivers.

Run Driver Verifier to scan for any corrupted drivers which may be causing problems, this program works by running various stress tests on drivers, in order to produce a BSOD which will locate the driver; run for least 24 hours:

Well looks as though it's a driver problem. After setting up driver verifier as per the instructions you posted, I immediately got a blue screen straight after the 'starting windows' screen. Minidump attached, my desktop is filled with these things now haha.
Also, what would I do in regards to the IRP?

A IRP isn't an error, it's a completely normal procedure (IRP = I/O Request Packet), if you mean what would you in a debugging sense, then you would use !irp with the address of that IRP.

This bugcheck is caused when Driver Verifier finding a I/O violation, the error can be seen with the first parameter. A driver marked a IRP pending but didn't return the STATUS_PENDING flag.

This driver is usually either used by iTunes or GEAR software programs, please update any associated programs or remove them completely.

Phew, I uninstalled Daemon tools and iTunes (and other leftover Apple programs) and got rid of that GEAR driver.
I am currently running Driver verifier again and it's looking good as I've actually managed to log on! I'll keep it running all day and post back if I get anything else.
