Windows 7: BSOD on startup before desktop is stable. have seen: USBunci KS.sys

BSOD on startup before desktop is stable. have seen: USBunci KS.sys

Good Day,
I have been experiencing BSOD starting this afternoon, 8-15-13. I have removed and re-installed both my video card and all 6 ram sticks. I have seen both USBunci and KS.sys in different BSOD pages. Luckily I have Safe Mode with networking working for this post. I have attached a zip file with the diagnostic info as per instructions.

I just tried to restart my system. This is the lasted info from my most recent BSOD:

Driver unlooaded without cancelling pendind operations
tech info:
stop: 0x000000ce (0xfffff88004acc0d5, 0,0000000000000008,0xfffff88004acc0d5, 0x0000000000000000)

Thank you.
