Windows 7: irratic BSOD crashes, various reasons given

irratic BSOD crashes, various reasons given

On the day after my house upgraded to ATT's Uverse plan, I suddenly began to have mysterious BSoD problems. And it has continued since February 2013.
Now,I have some knowledge about computers since I had to learn for my job selling music software to professional musicians during the late 1990's to the mid 2000's. And ever since I have kept up with it for my graphic arts, musical and writing activities (I am a Science Fiction author). So I am sorry to say that this problem has me stumped.
It doesn't matter what I am doing, this computer, (which I had purchased from Best Buy a year and a half ago in a pinch) will for no reason crash. I am tired of trying to figure it out and so I come to you. Please help. I have included the zip file requested as well as another file that spells out the Blue screen error.
Also, and I don't know if this is related or not, I seem to have a problem with flash constantly crashing, even though I have tried checking and unchecking the pepper-flash components in my browser (Chrome). I should probably post this in another thread though. Just thought I'd mention it incase it is associated with whatever this problem is. I have run several virus scans with no viruses ever being found. Thank you for any help you can give me. Will be at work at my real job soon so I won't be able to respond until after midnight local time.

If all the tests comes free from errors, enable Driver Verifier to monitor the drivers.

Run Driver Verifier for 24 hours or the occurrence of the next crash, whichever is earlier.

Why Driver Verifier:
It puts a stress on the drivers, ans so it makes the unstable drivers crash. Hopefully the driver that crashes is recorded in the memory dump.

How Can we know that DV is enabled:
It will make the system bit of slow, laggy.

Before enabling DV, make it sure that you have earlier System restore points made in your computer. You can check it easily by using CCleaner looking at Tools > System Restore.

If there is no points, make a System Restore Point manually before enabling DV.
