BugCheck 1E, {ffffffffc000001d, fffff8800f1df4e0, 0, 0}

*** WARNING: Unable to verify timestamp for vsdatant.sys
*** ERROR: Module load completed but symbols could not be loaded for vsdatant.sys
Probably caused by : vsdatant.sys ( vsdatant+15364 )
4: kd> !error ffffffffc000001d
Error code: (NTSTATUS) 0xc000001d (3221225501) - {EXCEPTION}  Illegal Instruction  An attempt was made to execute an illegal instruction.
The illegal instruction is located here:

fffff880`0f1df4e0 08041e          or      byte ptr [rsi+rbx],al
So, I'm just going to pull these registers apart, and explain their purpose:

rsi = is a index register, and is used for string and memory array copying.

rbx = base pointer for memory access.

al = I/O port access and interrupt calls.

fffff880`04727364 ??              ???
The IOPL has been set to Ring 0, and this determines which code can access the I/O ports, I'm assuming that a driver accessed a I/O Port at the wrong Ring Level.

The driver is related to Zone Alarm TrueVector Device Driver, I would suggest finding a updated version of the program, or removing the program completely with Zone Alarm Removal Tool.

Windows Firewall, and Microsoft Security Essentials with Malwarebytes (+SuperAntiSpyware).

There's also no new dump files within the folder, did you have another crash?

BugCheck A, {fffffaa0129924d0, 2, 0, fffff80003273688}

Probably caused by : ntkrnlmp.exe ( nt!KiDeliverApc+258 )
The system seems to have crashed, because a APC was sent at IRQL Level 2.

The other bugchecks' stack revealed calls related to USB, what is connected to your USB ports? Updated chipset drivers from the motherboard/model support page?

Try just using the keyboard and mouse with everything else disconnected.

There doesn't appear to be any new dump files either for some reason. When have the latest BSODs been happening?
