Windows 7: Multiple random BSODs associated with ntoskrnl.exe

Multiple random BSODs associated with ntoskrnl.exe

Seems to happen randomly with no real triggers apart from use of the computer. If I leave the PC alone it will crash eventually without me doing anything. If I am using it, it will crash much quicker (and time till crash seems to be inversely proportional to how much I'm doing). It's happened several times today alone. I've not had my PC on for a month or so but it had been occurring on and off before then too.
I've tested the memory and hard disk recently (not today) and there were no errors. Today I also got rid of Eset, Daemon Tools and a few other programs I thought could be causing issues. I've done countless other things and have tried 2 different hard drives and so on but no luck so far. TDSS Killer found nothing. Computer isn't overheating and shouldn't be short of power (it has been running fine for 4 years or so without problems until this year).
I've attached the log files so hopefully someone can make more sense of them than me. Had to upload in .rar rather than .zip and delete half the logs for it to actually upload though! Thanks for any help!

Welcome to the forum.

Enable Driver Verifier to see if it catches any misbehaving driver:

Thanks, I've done that. Just wondering whether I should leave it and just see what happens or should I actively try to provoke a BSOD? I find that starting the game Just Cause 2 will crash it within 10 minutes or so usually.

It isn't BSODing now for some reason, it's still crashing with Driver Verifier on, just either freezes (nothing works short of reset/ power button) or just spontaneously restarts! Any other ideas? I'll keep trying to get a BSOD in the meantime.

I'm not sure if it is fixed or not yet, not had a BSOD or other crash in a few hours. Manually cleared out all video drivers and installed the newest ones and reflashed the BIOS as I had some concern it might have been corrupt. Will see how it goes over the next few days and mark it as solved if I have no other problems. Still don't understand why I didn't get any BSODs when driver verifier was running though!
