Windows 7: BSOD : Clock Interrupt Not received/Driver_IRQL_Not_Less_or_Equal

BSOD : Clock Interrupt Not received/Driver_IRQL_Not_Less_or_Equal

Hello People. First off, I'm sorry if this is a potential duplicate post of someone else's thread. I looked through but got relatively confused. So i figured i would create an account and upload my data via the SF Diagnostic Tool.

To state my problem: I built my computer about two years ago. Around the same time i occasionally got my most common BSOD which is "A clock interrupt was not received on a secondary processor". Throughout the past two years another BSOD that seems to pop up is "DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL". There is a third BSOD but i can't remember it.

I'm mainly posting because this weekend they released the FF14 Open Beta. I am a pretty big gamer, primarily Blizzard games but was excited to play 14. The Clock Interrupt BSOD seemed to happen every single time i started to play after what seemed like a set amount of minutes. It has also happened to me when Playing WOW with Ventrilo up, WoW with a video up, Elder Scrolls by itself, its WAY to frequent and its time i addressed this problem.

I currently do not overclock my system. Computer on average runs around 55-57c. I use two monitors. Off the top of my head not sure what else you guys will need. I'll post this and check back from time to time. I pre-thank anyone who has the time to debug my problem.

Thank you - Will.

Thanks for the response Koolkat. I did uninstall AVG and switched to MSE. On a side note - you recommended a bunch of programs in your response, a bit confusing as to what is actually Required and suggested.

As for "ASUSTeK Display Lower Filter" - Kinda confused on that one. It seems to be connected to some program that monitors my CPU Temps and ability to overclock. I dont overclock but i do like to watch my comp temp, since i dual monitor and game heavily. What exactly do i have to uninstall? I installed that Revo Uninstaller but oddly it didn't show AVG listed to uninstall, so i did it the old fashioned way through add/remove. In revo it only shows two programs that might be connected to the software in question: ASUS Smart Doctor and ASUS Gamer OSD. Which one of those is the culprit? If you need more info ask away!

The below drivers are the one you have to either update, or remove completely.
