Windows 7: BSOD downloading WoW/installing updates on shutdown

BSOD downloading WoW/installing updates on shutdown

OK, so I've been struggling the past few days after recently building my very own first rig.

After finally finishing, booting it up, and installing all the latest drivers, I've started getting a few BSOD's when I do certain activities.

They mostly seem to be triggered by two things:
Running World of Warcraft's streaming downloader
And installing Windows Updates upon system shutdown/restart

I've made sure to attach the SF diagnostic info in a zip, and would greatly appreciate anyones help in solving this issue

System Specs:
Win Home Premium x64
ASRock 970 pro3 R2.0 Mobo
AMD FX-6300
8gb of Kingston HyperX DDR3 1600
nVidia Geforce GTX 760
Samsung Evo SSD
WD Blue 7200 rpm 1 TB drive

As an update, the BSOD's vary on how fast they occur. Happen anywhere from 5 minutes to 3 hours after booting up the computer.

Ok. So after reading through a bunch of other threads on here, I decided to run Memtest86 in order to test my memory and see if it might be contributing to the problem.

After running memtest, it came back with an error, so I then ran it again on each individual Kingston HyperX, 1600 4gb DDR3 Stick, using the same slot on my motherboard for both tests. After both were done, It only returned an error on one of the sticks, and the other one tested fine.

Since this, I have removed one of the 4gb memory sticks, and am currently running the one stick that didn't return an error.

Unfortunately I still got a BSOD, even after removing what appears to be a defective piece of Ram.

One of the main questions I have now, on top of how to solve this BSOD problem, is this: Since Memtest returned an error on one of my ram sticks, does that mean that the stick is defective, or could it be my ram frequency/timing settings in my BIOS. I have the ram set manually to 9-9-9-27, 1600mhz, at 1.5v. All of which are according to Kingston specifications for this RAM.

I have uploaded a new copy of the SF diagnostic tool, containing all of the .DMP files since the last file was uploaded.

Greatly in need of some help here.

Every time I shut down, Windows Update installs the same 2 updates. It never gives an error message saying that the install failed... it just insists on doing it again. This is the update from last week, I guess. I'm afraid I'm at work and away from the affected computer. It's not critical,...
