BSOD Watching Netflix, Playing Games, MEMORY_MANAGEMENT

I continually get BSOD's while trying to play Infestation or Watch Netflix, run IE, Chrome, I've already run a Memtest86 with 0 errors. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hello and welcome :)!
The majority of the dumps are showing signs of a driver misbehaving, mostly with association
to Steam, WarZ and AVG.
Please remove AVG and all of it's extensions mainly the toolbar (in each browser),
I suggest you use Microsoft Security Essentials instead.

For how many passes did you allow memtest to go through?
The following quote describes the best course of action right now, in great detail :) .

Test your RAM modules for possible errors.
How to Test and Diagnose RAM Issues with Memtest86+
Run memtest for at least 8 passes, preferably overnight.

But if it starts showing errors, Stop testing. Errors/red lines means one or more RAM is faulty. But the fault may occur due to a faulty DIMM slot, too, which is a motherboard component. Using memtest86+, you can discriminate between a faulty RAM and a faulty motherboard.

How? Say you have two RAM sticks and two DIMM slots. You obtained errors at the test with all RAM sticks installed. Now, remove all the sticks but one. Test it in all the available slots, one by one. Continue the same procedure for all the available sticks.
How to make the inference that is it a RAM issue or it is a motherboard issue? Suppose you have got the result like that:
It is a RAM, a bad RAM.

But if you have got a result like that:
It is a motherboard issue. The particular slot is bad.
If memtest comes free from errors, enable Driver Verifier to monitor the drivers.
Driver Verifier - Enable and Disable
Run Driver Verifier for 24 hours or the occurrence of the next crash, whichever is earlier.

information   Information
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.

warning   Warning
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.

Tip   Tip

Let us know the results, with the subsequent crash dumps, if any.
Keep us posted :) .

I let Memtest go overnight, and when I woke up there were 0 errors and I'm almost positive it was done, but I was kind of tired and I suppose I could have been wrong.

I recently have had to use a wireless adapter to reach the internet here and most of my problems came shortly after a power outage. Is it possible that the driver could be from the wireless adapter? I'll try and reinstall the driver and adapter software to see if that's an issue, I didn't have these issues before the power outage.
